    Pros

    Flexible hours, good first job to teach you patience & the value of a dollar

    Raises are few and far between, Management frequently changes, difficult to move up within the company

    Keep managers in a location for longer than 3 months

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, and most of the time the supervisors were kind, too. Very easy job--would recommend to high schoolers.

    Cons

    A lot of the time the costumers were condescending or straight up rude. Supervisors can also be strict, depending on what department you're in.

    Pros

    Other workers are very friendly.

    Cons

    Roche Brothers does not give a break even if you work 4 hours. Per Mass labor laws you should have a 10 min break for every 4 hours you work. If you bring the subject up you will not get any hours.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people as people not your slaves. Give a break between the 3rd and 4th hour.

    Pros

    Benefits. Health insurance and time off. Vacation, a lot of paid holidays, sick time, 2 personal days. Not bad for a grocery chain.

    Cons

    Too many chiefs in the main office that aren't on the same page. You do what one wants, and the next one comes in and wants something totally different. Annual raises should be based on your evaluation. Not given out before your evaluation.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate. Please get on the same page so everyone's expectations can be filled. Please be reasonable as well when dictating the hours to fulfill these expectations.

    Employees generally buy into strong customer service culture, but day to day prices are well above the norm.

    I have been working at Roche Bros. Supermarkets part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    employees generally get along well, customer service is as valued as any supermarket

    Cons

    No employee discount, nothing in prepared foods/deli/bakery is actually made here, employees are never asked for suggestions, pay increase rate is pathetic, many corporate office members are unnecessarily unfriendly to employees doing grunt work

    Advice to Management

    Offer more incentives for accomplishments, be friendlier to minimum wage workers, emphasize selling ready made products in the store

    Pros

    I really like working here. It's a very good place to work for retail wise. Nice pepole to work with. Good hours to work every week. Descent wages

    Cons

    Well the shift hours always seems to be changing. Not enough positions that are open for pepole to move on up. Other than those two cant think of any.

    Advice to Management

    Have a hiring freese that way other workers can have chances to try a different a job position before you hire more workers
