    Pros

    Flexible hours, friendly co-workers (most of the time), every day is a new adventure, pay is reasonable for someone starting out

    Cons

    Managers and Customers treat you like you're worthless, you pull more then your own weight and still no one cares, you have to treat customers with respect even if they yellat you for the little things, hit you with there car, and cut you off with there car

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, if a customer complains don't jump to conclusions find out what happened on both sides of the story

    Pros

    Most of the people who work there are really nice. Good crew overall.

    Cons

    Management constantly cutting hours, then asking you to stay late. Better to stay part-time, full-time is too stressful, because they can move you to another store with only a week's notice

    Advice to Management

    Stop messing with hours, If you want loyalty, you should respect your employees.

    Good job God Sunday pay managers are cool and nice. The costumers are nice

    Cons

    Most Cashiers aren't as happy. The bottle room needs to upgrade the machines.

    Pros

    Sunday & holiday over time pay along with sick days: healthy workers is important. Providing donations Local and regional nonprofits in communities (philanthropy a value I support) and some work/life balance. As for people who are considering this place: pick a department that you would like to advance in.

    Cons

    Rank takes precedence over individual desire and motivation along with ability. Most locations over hire. Not enough people try to prevent shrink.

    Advice to Management

    Every associate should be shown ways to reduce shrink (aka-TOTAL LOSS) here's how YOU can give incentive: reduced sales means a cut in EVERYONES hours, including them. Groom associates that have desire and willingness to learn. Department switches should never be taken personal. Some people can't take working in tight quarters ( front end, for example)

    Pros

    Short Shifts. Easy to make close acquaintances while working there. Promotions from within.

    Cons

    Occasional upset customer. Recommended to be a people person.

    Advice to Management

    We're trying hard. Don't bring down the hammer on employees. The customer isn't always right.

    Pros

    For some Stop & Shop can be a great starter job, the interview is fast and getting the job is easy. You can develop valuable skill in customer service, multitasking, communication, organization, leadership, and management. Managers are typically friendly and only want to see the work done regardless on how you do it. If you're tight with the store manager you will see your time working there will be a lot smother.

    Cons

    Management in the store is great depending on what location you work, corporate on the other hand is a nightmare. Unfortunately the company has long forgotten the fact that their employees are the working force that creates the "Better place to shop". Although the company claims they appreciate their workers and promise a great deal of opprotunity corporate could care less about fulfilling any of those promises. It shows too, instead of most big suits showing an ounce of gratitude towards their employees they order everyone around like drill sergeants. District directors will show their gratitude for five years of service by sending your a flimsy keychain that is so impersonal you are labeled "associate" on their thank you card. Moving up in the company, like applying for full time, is pretty much impossible. The company would rather soon as pay you as little as possible then actually grant you any bennefits.

    Advice to Management

    Learn from companies like Starbucks and Costco, treat your workers well and they will provide excellent customer service.

    Pros

    Work is not difficult, very manual. Reminds me of working on an assembly line at most times.

    Cons

    Most miserable group of people I have ever met - I don't think I have met one person happy to be there. Constant pressure to do more extends throughout store. Days, hours vary week-to-week.

    Advice to Management

    It does not appear that most areas are adequately staffed. This means if someone takes time off, there is no coverage - some work will slide. If it's a clerk, their daily things are kind of done by others. If it's a manager then the medium term stuff is not done - order supplies, schedules, etc... With the constant pressure to do more within the same schedule means people working off the clock. Absolutely amazing. Most are paid an average hourly wage but feel compelled to get something done on time regardless of clocking the hours necessary to get the job done. Remember the 'something' keeps growing in scope as well.
