    I have been working at Inserra Supermarkets

    Pros

    Experience not needed
    Learn communication skills
    Learn how to become a responsible employee
    Very flexible with schedules

    Cons

    Not much money given to part timers. You will encounter some unfriendly employees and customers. You might be stuck in a position for a while but that depends on you.

    I have been working at Inserra Supermarkets

    Pros

    Good union benefits are probably the best thing that the job has to offer. We do have a water cooler in the breakroom, as well as a microwave.

    Cons

    Hardly any advancement opportunity
    They won't hire any full timers
    put payroll and bottom line over customer service
    use previous year's results to determine scheduling for the same time next year (can vary!!)
    Don't have a night person scheduled in some departments.
    I have to leave the store to get food at night, because i'm sick of sushi, and the deli can't make sandwiches - mind you EVERY Stop and Shop will make a custom sandwich to order.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of constantly cutting hours across the board, why not find creative ways to increase sales? Why not put a self service case in front of seafood so that customers can buy fish at anytime, without waiting for a deli guy to come and help them, because there is no night help scheduled? What happened to the soup in Bakery? Why not have more ready to eat seasoned meat in the meat dept (seasoned chicken, stuffed pork chops).

    Offer some incentive (contests) for cashiers to scan faster. Let the deli make sandwiches to order, so I don't have to leave the building everytime for lunch.
