    Pros

    Customers are nice, good distance from home.

    Cons

    Too much drama, many co-workers and managers don't really care about their job, too little hours.

    Advice to Management

    If you can't improve environment and quality, close the failing stores and count your losses.

    Pros

    Willing to work around your schedule-but realize it is a reciprocating relationship.

    Cons

    Lack of focus by upper management can be frustrating. Tough to care when they do not.

    Advice to Management

    A&P's worst enemy is not the other chain stores, but itself. If upper management realized that, they could turn themselves around.

    Pros

    After Chapter 11 they promise opportunity for growth and involvement.

    Cons

    There is no direction and no support for any planning. 3 times the work load at only half the salary. Promotions only involve an increase in responsibilities, not salary.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the associates and support the implementations at the stores level. Hold the stores accountable for not supporting plans and programs.

    Pros

    Convenience and flexibility are the chief reasons for this vocation. The hours allow me to pursue other work and further my education while maintaining and enhancing my computer software proficiency.

    Cons

    No benefits for part time employees and the opportunity for full time work is very limited. Most managerial personnel are friendly and respectful but there are always one or two who are not. Still trying to figure out the benefit of union membership for part time employees. Nearly every employee I ask is unable to offer an explanation. Most say "I have no choice if I want to work here".

    Advice to Management

    For most - continue what you are doing and look to recognize those employees who "step out of the box" to add value to the customer experience. For the few, be aware that every employee is also a customer and has family and friends who have a choice. At a minimum treat others as you would expect to be treated.
