I worked there for 4+ years, two of them as full-time, permanent. Initially, things were great. The people were nice, we had just the right amount of diversity. My first bosses were caring, smart people. Some of the female managers after the transition, were reluctant to promote and often had 'pets' who were junior to the group. These people were promoted. Those who weren't on the 'list' ended up out the door at the first wave of lay offs. The fact that the levels who were being let go had more experience than some of the mid-managers didn't matter.
Job Satisfaction Level
Albertsons Grocery Stores were acquired by Supervalu. An entire new level of middle management were brought in and the experienced staff lost the best of their responsibilities and had no upward mobility.
