    I have been working at Acme Markets part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fair contractual wages, flexible hours, and the work for most requires no thinking. You get back what you put into this job and far as having more responsibilities...either way you get to enjoy all the company perks like a 25% discount on an AT&T phone bill, paid holidays and a Sunday premium, and the best medical benefits offered...Can't forget, THIS IS A UNION JOB!

    Cons

    The terribly rude customers, some late nights, hours get cut at times, and the management and company seem to care about the wrong stuff. Things completely change every few years and it sometimes feels like you're working at a completely different job, but maybe they have to do that to keep up with all of the other competitors? I don't know, but I know they never have a reason for changing anything, or at least they don't share with us which I find upsetting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more interactive with everyone. Give hours to those who deserve it and actually do work. Give raises to your P.I.C's (Shift Managers). They run the store when you're not there and definitely deserve some compensation for that. Hire better people and give them incentives to stay. The new hire turnover rate is crazy.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Acme Markets.

    Interview Details

    Firstly I received a call out of nowhere from the store director least when I expected it saying there was a job opening for a Part-time Bagger-Clerk. He scheduled an interview in the morning the next day and it was quite easy . Walked in, he asked two questions. Tell Me about yourself, and would you like this position. That easy, I think I got the job only because I'm a teenager but I also realized they hired a whole bunch of other kids too. I started out at $7.35/hr as a bagger, within a month they promoted me and a few others to cashiers at which point our pay went up $7.85/hr and then after 2 months $8, till my last days there going to $8.25/hr. AN AWESOME PAY FOR A PART TIME TEEN SUMMER JOB! The only hard thing working there was pushing carts, everyone that works there is so nice and considerate to problems. The only issues I have had there were:
    1) In order to get off you HAVE to schedule your off date 4 weeks ahead, which is pretty hard at least for me
    2) The whole union situation, They take a large sum of your first couple of paychecks in return you get that awesome pay I talked about earlier, if they didn't you would probably get the same amount anywho.
    3) Schedules are not online, You have to physically go in and check your schedule every Friday, I know friends that work at Giant that has no union that don't have to do that.

    All in all it's a good part-time summer job, assuming you get lucky and they promote you to cashier as quickly as they did me (within a month!).
