    I worked at Roundy's Supermarkets full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay isn't bad for long time employees, challenging work can be rewarding, nice coworkers

    Cons

    No labor hours, upper management constantly meddling, one size fits all merchandising model, hostile management culture which filters downward, idiotic uniform code

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your brand instead of tarnishing it and treat each store equally. Stop over expanding and focus on bringing existing stores up to par. Stop passing the buck to the stores and bring some accountability to the delusional executive management team.

    Category Analyst Interview

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume via email to human resources for an open Category Analyst position at Roundy's headquarters in downtown Milwaukee. A lady contacted me the very next day to set up a phone interview with me, which we scheduled for two days later. For those two days, I prepared for the interview by thoroughly researching the company, jotting down my answers to the most common interview questions, etc. I knew that I was qualified for the position and was confident that my phone interview would lead to an in-person interview.

    Only, she never called me. I sat by the phone while our appointment time came and went. An hour later, I sent her a friendly email stating that it appeared that our interview had been missed, and asked if it could be rescheduled. I heard nothing back. A couple days later I left her a voicemail, and again heard nothing back. It's as if this person's existence was wiped off the face of the earth.

    It's been about three weeks now and I've given up on the position. Extremely rude behavior from human resources and a big waste of my time. As an aside, my partner applied and interviewed for a Distribution Assistant position at Roundy's warehouse in Oconomowoc, and never heard back from human resources either. Nothing but discourteous silence from Roundy's. No wonder the company is crashing and profits are plummeting, when they can't even be bothered to bring in skilled and talented staff.
