    Pros

    fair salaries, good sense of team mate comradery

    Cons

    minimal perks, employees annual raise reduced to 1% TY for the entire company, operating in a contracting market which means high stress roles, little room for opportunity/growth, positions are rarely reposted if abandoned.

    Pros

    One of the most important reason,for me, is the ownership of your work. Additionally, you have a daily structure to follow. These guidelines help define who you are, as it relates to your position.

    Cons

    In many cases there are difficult teammates to work with. At times, this does hinder the work process. In many cases like this, attitudes and behavior fuels the unwanted drama, and adds to the ongoing issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the reality that is everyday life. The stores can't always master some of the programs that are put out there for us to complete, not because we aren't trying, because in some areas, the desire of the customers doesn't fit the form of the model.

    Pros

    There is always a way to advance and the pay is great once you becaome a department manager. Health insurance is good for full time employees

    Cons

    Not very many full time positions available. If you are a capable employee to are expected to perform at the level of department manager but don't get the pay or respect. Very stressful work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the pay scale part time employees working as a supervisor or in the service desk/cash office should be paid more than minimum wage. 1st clerks who tend to do the job or the department manager shouldn't have an $11,000 salary gap (that's at minimum too could be more) between them and the department head position. I have been a hard working 1st clerk and don't make enough for what I do. It makes for a bitter employee that you will loose soon.

    I have been working at Price Chopper Supermarkets full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Everyone needs food so the job security is great. Turnover throughout the company is consistent so there will always be open jobs that you can apply for if you are interested in moving up.

    Cons

    Not much of a work life balance for management. They love to tell you what you need to do but not how to do it. Every year they try to cut back in some way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people
