    Strong Community

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe 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.

    ConsYou 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 Senior ManagementLet part time workers work more than 28 hours per week.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great managers, very supportive, but not enough hours

    Cashier (Current Employee)

    ProsThe 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!

    ConsHours 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.

    Cashier

    Cashier (Former Employee) Bridgewater, MA

    ProsWhen 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.

    ConsThere 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.

    Great employers that treat you with respect

    Cashier (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsRoche Bros. Supermarket is a great place to work because its benefits are significant even to low level employees. Once you reach a certain status, you will be given a free lunch everyday!

    ConsSometimes the shifts were too long and laborious, but with the new renovations to the store, it can be comparable to working at chain supermarkets such as Market Basket.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpdate your technology.

    I am very happy with the training and advancement in working with roche bros.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Mashpee, MA

    ProsBeing in contact with the public, they offer vacation, sick time, personal days. the company is pretty flexible with the schedule and working around family situations. working with some of the best employees. they are also available to work with people who would like to cross train in different dept.

    Consthe co does not provide insurance to part timers, full timers are subject to transfers throughout the company.

    It's retail, if you can tollerate the depths of human stupidity you've seen the worst part of the job

    Advice to Senior ManagementWe understand that budget cuts are needed to stay competetive but expecting the same standards as before is just foolish and bad for morale.
