Review Highlights

Pros
  • Great pay great benefits good people (in 7 reviews)

  • The people are nice, the job is thankless, but if you work hard and remain dedicated there's room to grow (in 4 reviews)


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

  • As far as I know it was really hard to become a full time employee, all of the new hires were part time and you had to work for the company 10 (in 4 reviews)

    I worked at Acme Markets

    Pros

    Good benefits. Good pay for part time work.

    Cons

    Busy work sometimes. Depends on time of day.

  2.  

    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.

    Pros

    Friendly associates, opportunity to work in many departments, flexible scheduling,

    Cons

    low pay, some poor management, hard to get to full time, sometimes seniority shouldn't rule.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    advance people based on experience, knowledge of job, etc as opposed to years with company. Consider making more full time positions instead of keeping more people after each summer and then having to cut hours .

    I worked at Acme Markets part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice enough people, employee discount was nice, seemed like the average retail experience.

    Cons

    Absolutely no raises for any of the staff while I was there. Constant hiring and retiring specifically to prevent that from being an issue. Just kind of a soul-sucking environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your staff more
