    I have been working at Market Basket full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get a paycheck. Coworkers are mostly decent people. Easy, brainless, redundant work. Keeps you honest.

    Cons

    Small-minded company with no future vision. Managers have no clue how to manage talent or how to train their employees.

    Advice to Management

    TALENT acquisition and management training

    Pros

    Working at Market Basket is a unique experience because you get the benefits of a corporate chain of supermarkets but the work environment is very homely and almost old school. A raise every six months and bonuses multiple times a year are just a few of the reasons to love working at Market Basket.

    Cons

    The uniforms are over the top for a grocery store, and some of the management are in their positions because of time and not skill.

    Pros

    Market Basket is really flexible with work hours especially for students. They also give a few bonosus through out the year and have a good profit sharing plan. Market Basket also gives scholarships to college students.

    Cons

    The pay is low and full timers work almost every day with barely any vacation.

    I have been working at Market Basket part-time

    Pros

    Employees are friendly and willing to help out Some of the customers are nice, makes my day when they say thank you

    Cons

    So far my manager has been a little uncooperative in terms of scheduling flexibility. Almost everyone speaks Spanish including the managers. I have no idea what is going on half the time. I was never trained they just put me at a register. I was expected to know how to do everything and I had no idea what to do.

    Advice to Management

    Be friendlier to new employees and help them out.
