    I have been working at Stop & Shop part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It's a paycheck. At least I have a job, while so many people are unemployed.

    Cons

    They keep cutting hours. And you never know your schedule until 2 days before your week begins. It makes it impossible to take on a second part time job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase part timers hours and have more coverage.

    Pros

    Overall, I've had a positive experience. The associates for the most part are very friendly and easy to get along and work with. Management is also relatively easy to get a long with and they will take care of you as long as you do your job to the best of your ability. However this all may vary by store, as no one place is the same. I find myself lucky to have worked with the people that I do. Also, advancement is absolutely possible but unfortunately, it just depends on being there for long enough or in some cases who you know, when it comes to management or classified positions.

    Cons

    While Ahold has come a long way, they can still attract more customers by implementing a more aggressive pricing structure. The company is also too focused on company programs that seem as though some guy in an office thought of them. Most of it being micromanagement of daily tasks that were already being done correctly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your employees. And also, while keeping everything under tight control is necessary, micromanagement of everything little thing is not. let the stores take care of things on a more individual level with guidance from management rather than dictating exactly the way things should be done.

    I worked at Stop & Shop part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    paid vacation time, the longer you work there the more vacation time you get. Also get paid time off as well, but you need to use them or lose them.

    Cons

    they cut hours last year
    belonging to a union
    the good help gets moved around all the time if you're a full timer

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give pay raises to the people who earned it, not by the union!!!
    allow the workers to opt out of the union

    Pros

    Not sure if they are any

    Cons

    This business is going to fail under this current management. They are a bunch of egotistical narcissists that are out of touch with their personnel and the communities that they do business in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They are running the company into the ground so I am not sure they really care at this point.

    I worked at Stop & Shop part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    paid training
    co workers that are willing to help you out when ask for it
    after a year one week vacation, the longer you're there, the more vacation time you get

    Cons

    full time workers are transferred when the mangers or higher ups decide
    belong to the union
    clean sweep have to go around the store and check the store
    they don't have hours for the part time workers, they work less then 30 hours a week. Part time workers can't live off those wages

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get rid of those aprons
    get rid of clean sweep

    I have been working at Stop & Shop part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    well its a job. Its unionized, but the union is a joke. Some managers make an effort to help out part timers, but some management treat part timers like the dirt under there feet and just abuse there power, i wish every part timer knew the union power they have and say no more often, sadly we are poorly informed to our rights in the union contract and have to rely on a 60 year old glutton glob who doesn't even know the rules himself.

    Cons

    always understaffed, department managers do not know what they are doing, health violations everywhere. I understand the customer is always right rule, but stop and shop brings it to a whole new level, an arguing customer will ALWAYS get there way because management is too pussay to defend employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When the store is over run with complaining customers your biggest concern shouldn't be whats for lunch.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Co workers are ok. Union makes it very hard to get fired.

    Cons

    Low pay. Having to pay union dues but get no benefits. Management that doesn't try to improve anything. Worried only about profits. Understaffed and only hires part time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay what the job is worth. Try to help employees do their job instead of saying not my problem. You deal with it, then yell at them because the work isn't done.. Hire enough people to do the work.
