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

    Pros

    Good benefits for working there, flexible hours. Most of the people there are very easy to work with. Are some areas where advancement is easy.

    Cons

    Lack of communication. Lots of empty Promises. Raises are a joke,especially when you have been there for so long. Longer you work there the more problems and stress you deal with.

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

    Pros

    good people but sometimes stress can be a factor in the way when I left Price chopper I was a cashier at the time I was there and afterwards I applied to become a cashier for the Framingham stop and shop but I found out it never happened I ended up bagging and repeating the same for over 14 strange years with no promotion and no move up in the company because of management changes this it what's holding me back I need to change my line of work badly

    Cons

    I have been a great person I have no real honest complaints from the previous management they were great and I was their top guy the only real issue I really truly have is the upstairs break room is that's needs sever cleaning every morning because when I go up stairs to relax and eat something before I go on the floor it's always a giant mess and I have to eat outside because it's very nasty and I wouldn't be surprised to see the board of health close the store because of this type of issue in this case someone needs to get on this I mean every morning thank you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    like II said before the upstairs break room needs more attention to be cleaned every morning that is all because it just can't be left for someone else to go after that is all

    A decent starter job

    Former Employee - Grocery Clerk in Brockton, MA

    I worked at Stop & Shop part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you've got good managers (which are rare), they can be flexible and help work around your hours. It's an alright starter job to gain experience dealing with people, but not one that is really rewarding in the long run. It's more about the people you work with that make the day to day aspects of this job either bearable or really horrible.

    Cons

    Management. Very cookie cutter in some aspects, and the guys from above like to come down hard on everyone, including store and department management, which in turn kills morale pretty badly with silly guidelines put into place. Everything is also unionized, which is nice for people if they lean on them, but it limits your growth at the company and everyone gets raises at the same time. Basically that means the only way to make more money than the other guy is to get more hours, and those are always getting cut by management to save money and look good as a store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your people or they'll quit out on you.

    Pros

    We had very caring employees to work with and management was very accessible. The healthcare benefits were great and the pay was competitive.

    Cons

    We needed more help in our department. It's also difficult being on your feet for 10-12 hour shifts. Some equipment was outdated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please observe how hard we work

    A pretty cool place.

    I have been working at Stop & Shop

    Pros

    The atmosphere is laid back and friendly, management is pretty lenient, vacation and personal time was pretty generous, probably because I was a part of the union.

    Cons

    In the pharmacy department they do not allow technicians a full time schedule because they don't want to pay for the hours or the benefits. It's unfortunate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is key, check attitudes at the door.

    Pros

    Good experience with customer service, department managers care deeply about their employees

    Cons

    Store managers are too arrogant and could care less about part-time workers

    Include part-time workers more by informing them and including them more in daily financial information and some decision making
