    Pros

    Working with the employees at Roche Bros is like working with family. Every employee tries to help each other.

    Cons

    Every employee is treated poorly. Unless if the employee is related to a manger or to someone with a high position, then they get treated better. I have seen a employee brag to other employees about how the rules don't apply to her, because her dad is one of the managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everyone equally. Quit showing favoritism.

    Pros

    Benefits. Health insurance and time off. Vacation, a lot of paid holidays, sick time, 2 personal days. Not bad for a grocery chain.

    Cons

    Too many chiefs in the main office that aren't on the same page. You do what one wants, and the next one comes in and wants something totally different. Annual raises should be based on your evaluation. Not given out before your evaluation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate. Please get on the same page so everyone's expectations can be filled. Please be reasonable as well when dictating the hours to fulfill these expectations.

    Employees generally buy into strong customer service culture, but day to day prices are well above the norm.

    Pros

    employees generally get along well, customer service is as valued as any supermarket

    Cons

    No employee discount, nothing in prepared foods/deli/bakery is actually made here, employees are never asked for suggestions, pay increase rate is pathetic, many corporate office members are unnecessarily unfriendly to employees doing grunt work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more incentives for accomplishments, be friendlier to minimum wage workers, emphasize selling ready made products in the store

    Pros

    I really like working here. It's a very good place to work for retail wise. Nice pepole to work with. Good hours to work every week. Descent wages

    Cons

    Well the shift hours always seems to be changing. Not enough positions that are open for pepole to move on up. Other than those two cant think of any.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a hiring freese that way other workers can have chances to try a different a job position before you hire more workers

    Pros

    When I was there the manager was really nice and understanding. If you put in the effort and work they will move you around to where you want to be.

    Cons

    There is a new supermarket that is a lot cheaper than roche bros. so a lot of the customers are going there and the managers are starting to be more strict.

    Pros

    Excellent place for young folks/part-timers to work. Accommodating to your schedule.

    Cons

    Work gets boring, but it's a job, so can't really complain. Great place if you are not looking for any major work "distinctions" or concern about career trajectory but are really just looking to make some money or something to do with your time.
