No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Stop & Shop part-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Full benefits after only one year, flexible hours, very low stress, close to home, builds good work ethic and friendships

Cons

Slow career advancement, management does not understand the need for more man hours to get work done, does not appreciate a job well done

Advice to Management

Take notice at what your employees are doing for the company and treat them with the respect and admiration they deserve when they bend over backwards to help out.

  1. It has it's perks for certain people, but not a career type of employment. Wages for all positions are much lower...

    I worked at Stop & Shop part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedules, mostly part time. Great for young moms, students or retired folks. Not perfect, but okay Medical, Dental and Vision Insurance after a while for just the worker, good for young students without dependents. People are very friendly. It felt like family.

    Cons

    Low wages, poor raises, union based wages, wages not based on incentives, so regardless of how hard you work you will never get a raise or a bonus. There isn't much room for promotions, and full time positions are very limited, and hardly available to the average person. Wages are much lower than standard rates.... if you work anywhere else you'd be paid much more with better benefits, but I'm not sure how flexible they are with their schedules.

    Advice to Management

    Offer incentives for hard workers...some of the workers do little to nothing and ride on the backs of the people who care...

    Pros

    good co workers have some benfits can ask for time off when needed have an employee discount can transfer to another department if you want

    Cons

    they keep cutting hours even if you been there for years having to belong to a union. I wish employees had the option of getting out union. That should be an option, allow the employees to chose to belong to the union, or not belong to the union. the good mangers, and good full timers get tranfered some of the workers who don't pick up the slack who call out all the time, and the company doesn't do a darn thing about it.

    Advice to Management

    change the dress code! hate purple and yellow! allow workers to wear something besides aprons, the neckstraps so uncomfortable!! the pockets on the aprosn are so small! get rid of the slackers, good help is very hard to find! get reflective raincoats provide more stuff needed for the job so employees don't have to dig in their own pockets to pay for it. stop transfering mangers, when things are getting good, the mangers are transfered, and you have to get use to a new manger, and their rules
