    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.

    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 as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for solving problems (or challenges as they like to call them)--things are so screwed up.

    Cons

    Place is hopeless, no one in senior and middle management cares, all looking out for themselves, rats on a sinking ship. Always under turnaround, year after year, never make real progress. Company is bled dry, but the fat cats are still fat. Lot of incompetent people, but most employees are sincere, and wish for something better, especially better management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a grip, it should be about the company, not all about you, and what you can squeeze out of it. It's about what you can give rather than what you can take.

    I have been working at A&P full-time

    Pros

    Great people to work with; employees as well as Managers.

    Cons

    Always short staffed. Not really sure what HR does. Definitely doesn't assist with hiring even though they know departments are short staffed. Company has been in financial difficulty so, no raises, no reviews.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your employees. They keep the customers happy and your store functioning!
