    I worked at Stop & Shop part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    It is less busy, more enjoyable, you get to go outside and get some fresh air as you have to water the plants outside, get to manage the department without anyone breathing down your neck, get to work around plants and make flower arrangements.

    Cons

    Depends on manager, sometimes get called up front to help out cashiers when it gets hectic, a lot of watering and you have to blow up balloons, cleaning up department.

    I have been working at Stop & Shop part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Friendly employees, some favorite customers who I love, if you are a good worker you tend to get hours

    Cons

    Depending on what store your in, poor management. Don't care about your opinion. Care about stupid things. Cliques.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take into consideration the opinions of the employees. We are the ones that work directly with customers, not you so be reasonable with your expectations. Everyone's not perfect.

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

    Pros

    You will get a weekly paycheck. If you work in the Back (like Grocery, Dairy, or Porter), you will be left alone to do your work and respond as needed.

    Cons

    If you work Front End you will constantly be managed. When it comes to scheduling and requesting time off, you have to fend for yourself. The store will always be under-scheduled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't know who upper management is. Quincy Headquarters or the Home Office in The Netherlands? You are lucky to see your store manager.

    I have been working at Stop & Shop

    Pros

    I'm guaranteed 40 hours. The health insurance is very affordable thanks to being single and the union of course. The pay is pretty good. Most people that I work with are decent human beings unlike the management upstairs.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement. Management not too personable. No good morning or a simple thank you. There is a lot expected from you with very limited help due to payroll cuts. Certain people are very set in their own ways thanks to the union.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just a simple hello or thank you goes a long way. I like to feel appreciated.

    I have been working at Stop & Shop part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They hire anyone. As long as you are able to get in contact with one of the managers, and your application received a "smiley face" online and get an interview, they can't not hire you. It's especially easy if you know someone in the company and out their name down. Everyone in the company seems to be nice for the most part. Depending on your union contract, you eventually get dental, vision, medical and Rx benefits, vacation pay and sick/personal pay (even part-timers).

    Cons

    Minimum wage with raises according to union contract. They are ALWAYS cutting hours and expect everyone to work extra hard to make up for the lost work. They are such a cheap company owned by Ahold, a company from somewhere in Europe and they do everything they can to cut down costs. Especially store managers, so can receive their bonus at the end of the year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop listening to corporate so much, try to think outside the box a little and form your own opinions for once. You all just agree to everything they say without even questioning it, even if it doesn't make any sense at all. Grow a pair.
