    Pros

    There are good people here and lots of work.

    Cons

    This is not a technology company, and is somewhat unfriendly to tech and tech positions.

    Advice to Management

    Tech, IA, CM, and UX are truly important to companies, not an afterthought or, worse, undesirable or unnecessary.

    Pros

    The people who work here are really great to work for and work with.

    The company merged and so many people and departments are being moved to Boise.

    Be more transparent with the information you give to employees. More information is better then letting rumors go rampid.

    Pros

    Great work place with a good history. They promoted within the company and many people have been there for a long time.

    Cons

    Our call center in Phoenix was laid off after the Albertsons merger went through. Other than the abrupt end of employment I loved the company. We even got a severance package.

    Pros

    They listen to what you have to say. All the managers are very easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Don't really use enough cashiers or sackers. The lines are always backed up and the cashiers have to always bag all the groceries by themselves .
