    I have been working at Roche Bros. Supermarkets part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    5% discount, accrued vacation time for part timers, time & a half pay on Sundays

    Cons

    Lack of communication between main office & stores, customer service priority is disappearing, managers show little to no appreciation of employees, pay is not reasonable and annual pay raises are insignificant, weekly schedules are often posted less than 12 hours before the week begins, main office does not take employees seriously, and threatens punishment more than offers rewards

    Advice to Management

    Since Pay & Bud passed away, this company has begun to fall apart. It is clear that no one cares for this company's future or its employees any longer. Morale is incredbily low in the stores and customers can see it, too.


  3. Just a part time job to pass the time and get by.

    I worked at Roche Bros. Supermarkets part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, and most of the time the supervisors were kind, too. Very easy job--would recommend to high schoolers.

    Cons

    A lot of the time the costumers were condescending or straight up rude. Supervisors can also be strict, depending on what department you're in.

    Pros

    Good hours, good coworkers, and customers are nice in the store. The store is clean and organized. Employee discount card, profit sharing, 401k, paid time off.

    Cons

    This was the worst place I have ever worked. You are not appreciated for anything, and you suck at everything. You stay late to help and get yelled at for overtime. If you don't stay long enough to help with payroll, why did you skip something? Raises are pathetic. Communication does not exist with management and department heads. Make this a last resort to come and work.

    Advice to Management

    Give your hard working employees some praise once in a while. Let them know where they stand. Give your employees some money. How do you expect your employees to survive on this piddly hourly wage. Most employees have to get part time jobs on the side when they work at Roche Bros.

    I worked at Roche Bros. Supermarkets part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great team work culture. The culture is promoted by management and the people they select to hire! Feels like a family run business even on the store levels of management.

    Cons

    Sometimes department managers don't coordinate well with each other and it can lead to a few people having longer shifts or working on shifts that are understaffed. But typically this is not an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Bettor organization and interaction with lower level employees. When a manager comes over and notices your department is under a barrage of customers and jumps it, its like a 5 star general joining the battlefield with privates. Your employees really respect you if you can do each job in the store with proficiency.

    Pros

    The other workers are very friendly. They give raises every year. The managers know what they are doing Taking time off is easy.

    Cons

    At my store you cannot work full time. Finding people to cover last minute shifts is horrible. Not that many Cons though.

    Pros

    I was a bagger who placed purchases in bags, put them in the carts, and pushed them out to the parking lot to load into the shoppers' cars. It was a simple job that would be difficult to get fired from.

    Cons

    The only downside was having to push the cart outside to the customer's car when it was down pouring rain or freezing sleet. Check the weather before work and dress accordingly. There were Roche Bros. umbrellas by the door for employee use, but they would run out and were also difficult to handle while pushing the cart and loading the car.

    Pros

    good management easy directives and goals put out by management simple job, doesnt require critical thinking or many skills

    Cons

    company policy prohibits you from taking tips when wage is already low not much else really, overall good company

    Advice to Management

    consider making pay raises more attainable for employees. its disheartening to hear in orientation that you can boost your pay but have it not really come true in the long run
