    I worked at Roche Bros. Supermarkets part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great team work culture. The culture is promoted by management and the people they select to hire! Feels like a family run business even on the store levels of management.

    Cons

    Sometimes department managers don't coordinate well with each other and it can lead to a few people having longer shifts or working on shifts that are understaffed. But typically this is not an issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bettor organization and interaction with lower level employees. When a manager comes over and notices your department is under a barrage of customers and jumps it, its like a 5 star general joining the battlefield with privates. Your employees really respect you if you can do each job in the store with proficiency.

    I worked at Roche Bros. Supermarkets

    Pros

    I was a bagger who placed purchases in bags, put them in the carts, and pushed them out to the parking lot to load into the shoppers' cars. It was a simple job that would be difficult to get fired from.

    Cons

    The only downside was having to push the cart outside to the customer's car when it was down pouring rain or freezing sleet. Check the weather before work and dress accordingly. There were Roche Bros. umbrellas by the door for employee use, but they would run out and were also difficult to handle while pushing the cart and loading the car.

    Pros

    good management
    easy directives and goals put out by management
    simple job, doesnt require critical thinking or many skills

    Cons

    company policy prohibits you from taking tips when wage is already low
    not much else really, overall good company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    consider making pay raises more attainable for employees. its disheartening to hear in orientation that you can boost your pay but have it not really come true in the long run

    I worked at Roche Bros. Supermarkets part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people here are generally friendly and supportive of each other. Solid management on the whole is understanding of personal responsibilities and reasonable in their managing style. Loyalty and dedication to work and company are valued above nearly all else at Roche Brothers.

    Cons

    You will be asked to work nights and weekends in all likelihood. The pay is fair, but by no means generous, at the associate level. Lot's of management rotation, which can be a good or bad thing depending on your relationship with managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let part time workers work more than 28 hours per week.

    I have been working at Roche Bros. Supermarkets part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The managers and supervisors are so nice. It's a really supportive environment. Around Christmas time the company sends its employees gifts cards to a restaurant that the employees can choose. I wasn't expecting it to be for very much but it was $25!

    Cons

    Hours are limited. As a part time employee you can only work a maximum of 28 hours a week, but you usually get fewer than that unless you are a supervisor. I average 15 hours a week which is not enough. Also, the pay is on the low side.

    Pros

    When I was there the manager was really nice and understanding. If you put in the effort and work they will move you around to where you want to be.

    Cons

    There is a new supermarket that is a lot cheaper than roche bros. so a lot of the customers are going there and the managers are starting to be more strict.
