    Good overall, but definitely room for improvement in multiple areas.

    Produce Clerk (Current Employee) Point Pleasant, NJ

    ProsOverall, I've had a positive experience. The associates for the most part are very friendly and easy to get along and work with. Management is also relatively easy to get a long with and they will take care of you as long as you do your job to the best of your ability. However this all may vary by store, as no one place is the same. I find myself lucky to have worked with the people that I do. Also, advancement is absolutely possible but unfortunately, it just depends on being there for long enough or in some cases who you know, when it comes to management or classified positions.

    ConsWhile Ahold has come a long way, they can still attract more customers by implementing a more aggressive pricing structure. The company is also too focused on company programs that seem as though some guy in an office thought of them. Most of it being micromanagement of daily tasks that were already being done correctly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of your employees. And also, while keeping everything under tight control is necessary, micromanagement of everything little thing is not. let the stores take care of things on a more individual level with guidance from management rather than dictating exactly the way things should be done.

    Its has it ups and down.

    Shift Manager (Current Employee) Dedham, MA

    ProsGood benefits for working there, flexible hours. Most of the people there are very easy to work with. Are some areas where advancement is easy.

    ConsLack of communication. Lots of empty Promises. Raises are a joke,especially when you have been there for so long. Longer you work there the more problems and stress you deal with.

    Framingham stop and shop o c c

    Bagger (Current Employee) Framingham, MA

    Prosgood people but sometimes stress can be a factor in the way when I left Price chopper I was a cashier at the time I was there and afterwards I applied to become a cashier for the Framingham stop and shop but I found out it never happened I ended up bagging and repeating the same for over 14 strange years with no promotion and no move up in the company because of management changes this it what's holding me back I need to change my line of work badly

    ConsI have been a great person I have no real honest complaints from the previous management they were great and I was their top guy the only real issue I really truly have is the upstairs break room is that's needs sever cleaning every morning because when I go up stairs to relax and eat something before I go on the floor it's always a giant mess and I have to eat outside because it's very nasty and I wouldn't be surprised to see the board of health close the store because of this type of issue in this case someone needs to get on this I mean every morning thank you

    Advice to Senior Managementlike II said before the upstairs break room needs more attention to be cleaned every morning that is all because it just can't be left for someone else to go after that is all

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A pretty cool place.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe atmosphere is laid back and friendly, management is pretty lenient, vacation and personal time was pretty generous, probably because I was a part of the union.

    ConsIn the pharmacy department they do not allow technicians a full time schedule because they don't want to pay for the hours or the benefits. It's unfortunate.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunication is key, check attitudes at the door.

    ProsGood experience with customer service, department managers care deeply about their employees

    Sometimes this place is a joke

    Clerk (Current Employee) Maspeth, NY

    Proswell its a job. Its unionized, but the union is a joke. Some managers make an effort to help out part timers, but some management treat part timers like the dirt under there feet and just abuse there power, i wish every part timer knew the union power they have and say no more often, sadly we are poorly informed to our rights in the union contract and have to rely on a 60 year old glutton glob who doesn't even know the rules himself.

    Consalways understaffed, department managers do not know what they are doing, health violations everywhere. I understand the customer is always right rule, but stop and shop brings it to a whole new level, an arguing customer will ALWAYS get there way because management is too pussay to defend employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen the store is over run with complaining customers your biggest concern shouldn't be whats for lunch.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
