    Pros

    It was a good part time job for a high school student. If your co-workers are nice it's a great environment. You learn how to deal with different people, as each customer has different personalities and attitude. It was ok.

    Cons

    Horrible pay for so much work. They expect you to do so much and only pay you minimum wage. The manager was sooo rude. Always had a problem with everything, also very sarcastic. Being a manager isn't just fit for him.

    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

    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.
