    I worked at Shop 'n Save part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    you get firsthand experience with how it feels to make pennies for going through absolute hell,
    one time a customer made me cry because her coupon didn't work, but the next customer bought me a candy bar.

    Cons

    you can literally be sexually harassed by a customer and then get told to deal with it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    shut this store down and tell the customers to just drive the extra distance to giant eagle.

    Pros

    Not a difficult job whatsoever. Weekly paychecks.

    Cons

    Still operates off of an old model of how to run a business. Lots of time for drama, stand in one spot all day, alot of the employees are old and bitter thus providing lots of room for ageism towards younger employees. I am a 21 year old man living on my own yet am constantly treated as though i'm 16. Can work as hard and fast as you want with nothing to show for it. I am the only nice and fast checker at our location. Will not be staying for much longer, cannot afford to live off of a businesses scraps (minimum wage-8.25)

    I have been working at Shop 'n Save part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Work here requires minimal effort, schedules are flexible, the decent pay for retail, coworkers are friendly. I've been blessed with cool managers (mostly). Overall it's a good experience for a first job.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement. Not challenging. Not mentally engaging; on slow days, when cleaning is done, there's nothing to do but be bored. Not fulfilling. Some customers will be angry at you for things you can't control. Not somewhere I'd want to stay forever.

    Pros

    Good training, decent managers, common sense mostly prevails.

    Cons

    Sometimes hard to get hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a bit too much micromanaging going on. It only serves to waste time and discourage employees.

    I have been working at Shop 'n Save part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Was able to work in an environment that was both challenging and rewarding at the same time. Was given a lot of hours, which was very good for my situation.

    Cons

    Was forced to do some menial tasks, and had to deal with some unpleasant customers. Nothing out of the ordinary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acting in a more personable way to the employees, really honing in on the the strength of Shop n' Save as a brand. Was never encouraged to really get into the whole atmosphere.

    Pros

    Great co workers, union shop

    Cons

    Start out pay 7.75, not enough checkers on busy days, sometimes in the office I have to run the express lane as well as the counter, high stress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop worrying about a bonus check and give mote hours to employees/hire a couple new reliable hard working body's!!

    I have been working at Shop 'n Save part-time

    Pros

    Talking and Greeting customers. I like the job of being able to help people, and meeting new people.

    Cons

    I have had my hours cut 3 times in about the last 2 half months. I am a reliable worker and I work every time I am called or ask to work. That is the only way I get more hours. I think that when my hours were cut for the 3rd time, I had only 11 or 15 hours. That is not good at all. Especially when I am reliable and a hard worker. There are those that work there that need to be fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I do not know exactly why my hours have been cut. I do believe that management needs to take a closer look at those that work and are there everyday to work and those that always have excuses to call off.

    Pros

    Not a bad job if you're in school or just need a small part-time job. The people were pretty nice

    Cons

    Only scheduled 4 hr shits
    little or no room for advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many cashiers have great potential to move up in the company pay more attention to their qualities; hire more within
