    Current Employee - Deli Clerk
    Current Employee - Deli Clerk

    I have been working at A&P part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I can't think of any pros worth mentioning sadly. 10% employee discount on regular priced items only 20% on the first Friday of each month...woohoo!!!

    Cons

    Working part-time for minimum wage sucks. Hard work doesn't pay off, you'll still get paid the same as another part timer (in some cases the full timers too!) that doesn't work as hard, and management will only give you a pat on the back at best. Training was short and not nearly enough. Short staffed. In the year that I've been there I've seen 3 people fired for multiple no shows. 5 people came and left. Some left and just didn't come back. most didn't last a few weeks. Company has cut back on supplies on all departments. And they cut back on major things like; gloves to handle food; packaging for food, cleaning products. They won't hire full time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is for corporate not management in the store. Let your managers do their job. Pay your employees what they deserve, and reward hard workers.

    I worked at A&P part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers and departmental managers

    Cons

    General manager was always a bit much to deal with. Didn't care about the welfare of the employees. Coworkers were a bit lazy and didn't like to help customers at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your employees more. They're the ones helping out customers and doing the physical work.

    I have been working at A&P

    Pros

    Hours are good for me. I have been here for over ten years.

    Cons

    Too much pressure. I have to be strong every day. I have way too much responsibility. I do the same work as my boss and do not get paid the same as him.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I need at least an hour break. I do so much around here.
