    Pros

    Good pay. Good Benefits. Great staff. Management makes sure we are up to date with latest trends and CEs.

    Cons

    Not enough support staff and hours. It is hard to navigate filling customer prescriptions, taking phone calls, manning the register, giving a flu shot, and helping customers pick out OTC items.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more support staff in the pharmacy so that there can be more traffic.

    Pros

    - The job itself is exercise. You're on your feet and moving your whole shift.
    - Breaks are often longer than contract allotted, though that was largely thanks to nice managers.
    - Hours are very flexible.

    Cons

    - Its starts out at minimum wage so take it for what it is.
    - Being blue collar work, you can your hands a bit grimy.
    - Definitely not suited for those with mobility issues or physical disabilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do what my managers did and give your Peapod shoppers longer breaks. It can take 5 minutes to buy yourself a snack. 30 minute breaks are the best.

    Pros

    People are friendly, Overtime is available in most cases, lots of diversity, Growth Potential exists.

    Cons

    Growth potential exists, but isn't distributed equally. Work-life balance isn't encouraged by the company, and overachievers will quickly burn out here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become better at recognizing talent and rewarding it.

    I worked at Stop & Shop

    Pros

    For young people just starting out with their employment journey, I found the working for Stop & Shop was an excellent environment for both flexibility and gaining general work experience. It also tends to be a pleasant work environment, with friendly employees. It's especially great for students, as they tend to work around changing schedules, and make allowances for students leaving for periods of time.

    Cons

    For an ambitious person, it is a place that you will quickly outgrow. While there is room for advancement, and good job security, the pay is not great, and the work can be monotonous. Also, employees start on a part time basis and need to work several years before being considered for full time advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be helpful to recognize potential rising stars more quickly and assist them with advancement in a more timely fashion. This will help curb turnover and motivate employees.
