Absolutely absurd! While the workers take a hold on pay raises, no 401K contribution, etc and Mr Sales gets 12.8 million for 6 months work. He had a part in driving the stock price down as a board member in the first place, hires Heckert, then fires him to save the company. It leaves a very bad tast in the employees mouths. Enjoy your money Wayne, think of us while you are spending it and we are struggling because of your mismanagement.

I hope you're happy with all your decisions. While employees stand in line in freezing cold whether to get free food. You fire employees without good cause,falsify records to cover your asses. Great job everybody. This is not only for corporate but your small stores. I'm sure you know who you are!

This is ridiculous! So basically this guy got paid 2 million dollars per month! Everybody under the supervalu banner should find this guy and burn his fkn house down! Then burn find his other homes and burn them down too! I remember my store director making everyone watch this film where this jackass basically apologized for running the company into the ground and how we should work harder to save it! Then walks away with 12.8 million in our hard earned money! I'm beyond furious.
