    Pros

    Paid Vacation
    5 percent employee discount
    Earn a paycheck every week and that is really about it

    Cons

    2 Years ago, we were hit by the worst storm ever HURRICANE SANDY and every store was opened. I had a friend who was forced to go in that day and he was a cartboy. How does a store run if there are empty aisles, very few customers and no work to do outside?!?! Makes no sense at all! This is way too extreme for retail. PRICE CHOPPER was closed in VT and CT.

    I couldn't stand the company policies..harsh and abusive!..cartboys are not even allowed in the store?! Even when it is raning, snowing...makes everyone feel lonely..This is ABSURD! I have seen them bring their headphones to make that job LESS BORING..which is fine by me...

    Also the management loves to MICROMANAGE their employees...they yell if things are not done perfectly..decreasing the cultural and values of this company.DAMAGING A PERSON'S MENTAL HEALTH...They will suck you in literally. NO WORK/LIFE BALANCE with this company...Manages have no clue what they are doing...they do not take anyone's work related problems into consideration. Very hard to get promoted towards the top

    The union is a joke...you can call them as many times as you want but they will not help anyone...same LAZY people everyday..They take advantage of people who work hard and throw more work on top of them..

    Not worth working here! you all have been FOREWARNED!
    hope all this info helps

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people equally regardless!
    Reward people who work hard and care
    Fire those who are lazy.
    Close all stores during extreme weather
    Increase the starting pay

    Pros

    Paid holidays, paid vacation, sick time, personal days and time and half on sundays/holidays. Good with schedual requirements
    Some employees are nice
    Managers are nice

    Cons

    Boring
    Get yelled at all the time ( I mean like 15 times/4hr shift) by customers with no motive
    No room for improvement at all
    Only a 15 min break 4-7 hour shifts.
    Min 4 hour shift
    New people get hired in waves so everyone has to carry their baggage while customers compain about them making mistakes/being slow
    Rarely get appreciated for efforts

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your enployees more. And I mean say "thank you" not just food 2/year. and promote from within.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits hard work!

    Cons

    Managers are clueless! Some employees do very little work. while others are trying to do there own work and make up the lazy employees work! Same people lazy every day! Managers don't care! They need to be trained how to run the stores! They just don't care!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't over work the same people everyday! It makes them to give up when you ask too much out of them everyday! Learn how to get all shifts to work as a team! And be aware how long it takes to do certain jobs! Do not let employees be lazy!!! Get a clue!!!!

    Former Employee - Front End Cashier in Smithfield, RI
    Former Employee - Front End Cashier in Smithfield, RI

    I worked at Stop & Shop part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The best reason to work here is that it is a union job; which provides some job security. Also, if you work here long enough you develop close friendships with your co-workers. Somewhat flexible in terms of scheduling.

    Cons

    Very little, if any chance of promotion or career growth. Untrained management and very poor communication with corporate and management. You are a number here. Very little chance of having your voice or ideas heard; and even less chance of anybody having the authority to approve change. Management is terrified of corporate and will not even remotely consider taking any action to improve workplace. Corporate makes rules that negatively affect cashier and front-end, without much thought to the practical application of the policy. Hours for part-timers are always being cut, which results in shifts where you are very short-staffed and forced to work harder than necessary. Promotions in front-end especially aren't always based on skill or hard work and often are based on social relationships or personality; which can result in people having roles they are not equipped for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to learn how to communicate with their employees. New procedures are never clearly defined or enforced and this creates a confusing environment where front end staff has no idea what is expected of them. Nobody is given proper training and managers often resort to passive aggressive remarks out of frustration. Consider a more formal employee review procedure where employees are able to voice their concerns and are given a chance to improve with specific requirements.

    Pros

    Reliable paycheck, possibility to move up for reliable workers.

    Cons

    Not paid near enough for what you'll have to put up with. Very little respect from managers. Little tolerance for disabled baggers from a couple managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Without your employees (all depts) you wouldn't have a business. Show some respect and understanding. Be more flexible to accommodate their needs and show some respect to all employees.

    Pros

    People I worked with were great. worked with school schedule. taught you how to deal with customers and problem solve.

    Cons

    management sucked. always transferring people. not enough help. always had to work weekends and most holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    treat your employees better! Better pay!!! If you think your store is running well because of management you are wrong. It is the hard work of the part timers covering peoples hours and doing what management should be that makes the stores run.
