NO FRILLS #3461 Bergen's

Size of company: Medium (50 - 499 employees)

Industry: Food, Beverage, Tobacco

  • This review follows the detailed rating on the left column. Trying to be as objective as possible.

    Business model: Owners are obviously good at making money and keeping a store looking good. No question about that.

    Management Skills: Lacking in respect to presence on the floor and connection to employee dynamics between co-workers and superiors. Lack of responsibility for employees actions and words (including full timers)

    Values: Due to lack of responsibility of employees and floor presence, seemingly lack of respect

    Communication: Little to no communication to part time employees.

    Feedback/Recognition: You know if you have done a bad job, but don't know if you've none a good job. "No news is good news" applies here.

    Pride: Meh...it's a job.

    Engagement: Lacking due to lack of presence and poor treatment from department managers (who employer is responsible for).

    Work Space: Good enough when not busy

    Atmosphere: Poor. Seems as if no one is happy with their job except employer.

    Recruitment: Poor. Employer does not seem to have any involvement in the recruitment of employees. No responsibility taken for useless/lazy employees.

    Tasks: The same tasks everyday.

    Teamwork: Great teamwork between almost all part time employees and some full timers, but lacking with most full time employees.

    Organization: Usually pretty good

    Compensation: Set by union and not employer to my knowledge. No comment, not relevant.

    Schedule: Unreliable. Hours between employees differs extremely.

    Stress: Depending on time of year and sales. Dollar sales are high stress.

    Work/family life balance: None. As comment stated earlier (assuming comment by owner or department manager due to way it is worded) they are there to run a business, not be a friend. Can lead to disconnect between employee and employees.

    Advancement: None.

    Recommendable: Recommend to students who only work weekends and nights, but not for people who are available 24/7

    General opinion (subjective): Employer needs to take more responsibility on how the department managers treat their employees. Some full timers are lazy and/or disrespectful which negatively impacts the work ability/desire of the employees. Employer is friendly when is on floor, enjoyable to work with for the most part. Biggest complaint is department managers.
