    I have been working at Stop & Shop part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The managers are nice from around the entire store. I had an issue with a coworker and the managers were very quick to respond. The schedule is very flexible so long as you have it written a week before.

    Cons

    They are Union and that means not much pay raises trickle in unless the union agrees. Also their full timers are considered supervisors so it muddles the roles sometimes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clarify the role differences between a manager and a full time employee.

    I have been working at Stop & Shop full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits for full time and department head positions. If you are willing to work hard and prove yourself you can move up and do very well.

    Cons

    this company is a bit too top heavy, and dosnt always give the store level associates the help and resources they need to get the job done effectively.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    train and develop more of your people, we loose more good help because we dont always take care of our people.

    I worked at Stop & Shop part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -good first job
    -employee discounts (minimal)
    -benefits can apply to part time employees
    -paid training
    -easy work

    Cons

    Management is horrible. They offer poor compensation, literally offering minimum wage. Not only do they offer minimum wage, but they give only part time employment. It is difficult to only work 4 or 6 hour shifts and still make enough to live off of. I was offered a promotion to a customer service representative, which would require me to do more work and use my bilingualism as a skill, yet offered no extra hours or compensation.
