Yes the prez did visit Bidd on one of our slowest days since the Basket opened. There have been meetings after meetings lately but no one is saying anything.

So how are we suppose to turn things around? We had self scanners installed yesterday and went over the new Rachel Ray Dinnerware promo. I not sure this promo will do anything for us except waste our time.
Oh and cost us money we don't have.

Rachel Ray promo is a desperate attempt to drive sales. To earn 4 place settings, you need to spend $3,200.00 between now and Christmas...really? I don't see too many carriages with $200.00 orders...every week...every month...ridiculous!

Your negativity is really bringing me down! We need to surround ourselves with positive energy.

Not really negative, just tired and overworked. Positive energy is all well and good, but it doesn't put extra people on the floor to help, and now with the new return policy, you have to re-ring the item and zero it out which needs an override every time. we don't have enough people on the front end to cover this and you can't override yourself. Plus we have to make up these stupid announcements every twenty minutes. Announce to who the other clerks. We have all just had enough, but hang on none the less. Oh and smile while you are getting yelled at because the customer can never find anyone to help them.

We are worse off now than when supervalu owned us.
There is no way out of this mess with the amount of help in the stores. Cerberus is an investment co. looking for profits. They dont know how to run supermarkets.

that is so true. They gave all these expectations but no help to do it. We are expected to dedicate out heart body and soul to Shaws and have no life. It's a lot to expect, especially from part time workers!

Cerberus has to hold on to Shaw's and the other banners they acquired from Supervalu for 18 months - after that, all bets are off. Keep that timeline in mind with all the changes they are making. Bottom line - they are NOT making any long-term investments.

Interesting developments (to say the very least) at Delhaize this week. The US chief is out after less than a year, and now the banners report directly to Brussels. Sounds to me like the first step in a US exit. I wouldn't be surprised if Bi-Lo/Winn-Dixie got Food Lion, with Kroger getting Hannaford. What say you guys?

It's time to BOYCOTT Shaw's for the way they treat their employees and customers. Where I shop, management refuses to handle customer complaints/phone calls.
