    I worked at Stop & Shop full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Co-workers and customers are great. Retail environment is good for those that like that.

    Cons

    Upper management overthinks a simple concept. Their new "FIX" program is horrible. It gives each department hours on what it thinks the daily tasks are. Some stores have lost up to 400 hours a week vs last years hours and employees are utterly frustrated and unhappy. Of course, what can't/doesn't get done has to be done by management. Each specialist has their new ideas to add almost every month and it just gets worse and worse. This company could be the best. It is a shame.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get real. You are ruining the company. Clueless to how it really is in the stores.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I enjoyed the job, my coworkers, and my customers, but the company itself is so poorly managed that it was intolerable.

    Pros

    If you're not looking to work too much you should be okay because they don't give you a lot of hours as a part-time. You can become a manager with ease so moving up in the system is a piece of cake and there are all kinds of jobs available throughout the store if you're willing to stick around and try to get into a different department.

    Cons

    Morally, I cannot tolerate Stop & Shop's dealings with its employees or its company policies. The managers of the store were irresponsible, apathetic, rude, and downright cruel. All food that is considered not fresh is LOCKED in a dumpsters rather than donated. The amount of waste is incredible. If you ask for different hours, miss a single day of work, or call them out on their inappropriate behavior they won't fire you because legally they can't without a reason. I have seen them lie to try to get people fired and cut peoples' hours until they are forced to quit. This didn't happen to me though because when I had a family emergency and tried to called out for the first and last time, I was told to come into work or I would be fired, so I came into work. There is a middle aged woman at my store that was made to do heavy lifting outside her job requirement because she was left entirely alone in her department and she sprained her neck and is now handicapped. Another girl there that I know worked there for ten years and still does not get seniority when it comes to hours or holiday pay. If you make more on the holidays because you have been there longer, they won't put you on because they don't want to pay you time and a half.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please take more care to treat your employees with respect and kindness. Think of people more and money less. Stop and Shop is a company that has lost its soul to greed and it shows. In the long run it will only hurt your business, especially because everyone that works there will refuse to ever shop there again in protest.

    I worked at Stop & Shop

    Pros

    Good part-time job.
    Most associates are very nice to work with.
    It's a good first job for those in high school.

    Cons

    They don't treat their people good.
    They've broken state laws on how to deal with certain associates.
    Poor communication between management.
    Violated federal law on wrongful termination of a disabled associate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to do a better job on how you treat your associates. More of them should stand up for themselves but fear the retaliation.
