I worked at Stop & Shop part-time (more than 3 years)Pros
Paid fairly, worked a decent number of hours.
Some great people worked in the store.
Employee points for money off purchases.Cons
Cashiers were not given enough trust. Issues that I could have easily resolved myself took far longer than necessary because the system only allowed supervisors to input certain commands, which only made customers extra frustrated.
Customers weren't always easy to deal with, especially when you had to seem happy for all of them.
Little room for advancement. As a cashier, your best bet was moving up to a Self scan or eventually a CDH position. These were effectively picked fairly arbitrarily, and once you hit CDH you essentially hit the ceiling.
Towards the end of my time working there, hours were being cut left and right.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Keep giving everyone hours.
Continue to hire nice people.
Promote people on their merits.
Give cashiers a higher level of trust. The more they can do, the more satisfied employees will be.RecommendsPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEO

I was only looking for a temporary summer job and they were okay with that. I don't think they're that selective so if you can answer the questions and seem normal you should be okay.Interview Questions
