    I have been working at Price Rite

    Pros

    Many co-workers are friendly with one another
    They are flexible when it comes to schedule
    Time and half pay on Sunday's

    Cons

    Store mangers can sometimes be over ruling
    Not much communication between lower end workers to higher upper end management .
    Sometimes have to work holidays such as the 4th of July.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to the management is to personally talk to random employees and see how they feel about the stores.

    Very demanding, little praise, not a lot of opportunity and employees are expendable.

    I worked at Price Rite

    Pros

    There are good hours available. It was a friendly environment. Being cashier keeps you busy and on your feet.

    Cons

    Taking a day off is a hassle. You are standing for hours. There is not a sense of a strong team dynamic. Never felt like you could do more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more proactive with the employees, make them feel important, give some rewards. Better communication all around would be good.

    I have been working at Price Rite

    Pros

    -Good environment among associates and store management
    -Autonomy in ordering and merchandising
    -Growth of the company presents opportunity for advancement

    Cons

    -Low pay among industry
    -Growth creating problems in terms of not having enough qualified people
    -No review system for managers
    -Most stores cater to EBT customers meaning business is very uneven depending on the state from high sales at certain points of the month to almost nothing making it hard to schedule for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Before implementing new policies such as extended hours ask your management team their opinions and ideas
    -Extend training program from 6 weeks to 12
    -Keep expectations in check with new stores so established ones who built the company do not carry the burden of higher sales goals/ lower payroll to make up for new stores that fall short.
