    I have been working at A&P full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have worked with some of the nicest and most professional people out there. I cannot ever rate the wealth of knowledge and friendship I have received from working for this company for over 25 years. Flexible schedule; I actually love my job; great people; most employees are extremely helpful; Union job (understanding about time off, etc)

    Cons

    The company is going bankrupt, corporate is extremely wasteful with money and seem to tighten the purse strings purposely for their benefit (I know that sounds harsh, but that is the way it seems )

    Advice to Management

    We, the workers, are the people who kept these stores together under the most difficult of times , many times with less than skeleton crews and without the proper tools needed to do our jobs. But we did it because we care- about the company as well as the customers. Please keep this in consideration.

    I have been working at A&P (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Several location in nyc allows for growing opportunities. Store managers receive some flexibility to merchandize their own stores correctly to the community

    Cons

    Company going bankrupt after several years of terrible upper management decisions. Store managers have the worst health insurance in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Be prepared to make your own decisions because there is a huge disconnect with the merchants & operators working in the corporate office. Maintenance budgets to repair stores is nearly non existent
