Cons
  • Occasional mismanagement; sometimes a lack of hours for part time help (in 9 reviews)

    I worked at Acme Markets part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Acme provides a friendly environment to work in. Managers are pleasant and staff is knowledgeable. Hours are ok and time is flexible.

    Cons

    Marginal pay at best with little or no opportunity for advancement. Long hours expected of most employees. Benefits are just so-so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get down in the trenches more and try and get a better understanding of what is important to you employees and figure out ways to make working there more appealing.

    I worked at Acme Markets part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed my co-workers (felt like a family) and working in a fast paced environment. It is easy.

    Cons

    Schedules sometimes did not make sense (i.e. work until midnight, then next day do early morning shift), corporate people that would come in were often rude and condescending, pay was too low for the long hours needed. They promoted me to a CSR, but failed to give me proper training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't talk down to employees, have a better attitude as it will be contagious, please be more flexible and understanding about emergencies and time off needed.

  6. It sucked working there, but it was my first job. We all have to start somewhere, I guess.

    I worked at Acme Markets

    Pros

    It is a good place to get your first job, just because they'll hire you without any experience. Its also easy to get employed there, because the turnover is probably high.

    Cons

    The atmosphere is depressing (where I worked, anyway), and they play this constant pop music playlist through the speakers. Supervisors are rude and condescending to baggers.
