    Pros

    Great Management Team and training program provided the skills and knowledge needed in each department. Union Based employer

    Cons

    work-life balance and personal growth can be hindered with this job. Hours not constant, and schedule tends to change often

    I have been working at TOPS Markets full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Training wasn't available and the hours keep getting cut and cut and cut.
    I love the people I work with. They are mostly amazing.

    Cons

    The hours and leadership are rough. They keep wanting you to do more with less which happens all the time in retail now. You can't raise prices so cut the hours to the bare minimum to be functional.

    I worked at TOPS Markets part-time

    Pros

    Decent hours (as a bakery clerk the latest I worked was 7pm), easy work, for the most part the coworkers were okay.

    Cons

    Union dues. I really want nothing to do with unions in the first place, but being required to join one and pay the subsequent dues was definitely a downside. Also the pay was obviously low but it was an entry level job so that's to be expected. Customers could be a little quirky at times but nothing too bad.

    Pros

    Co-workers were nice like pretty much everyone I saw was pleasant and spoke, very flexible, job is a no brainer, you never work pass 7pm, union, guaranteed at least 16 hours

    Cons

    No discount, even though job is very easy it's also repetitive, going to work at 6am lol

    I worked at TOPS Markets

    Pros

    Flexible with work hours. Great befits that aren't expensive.

    Cons

    Raise once a year and was only .25. Wegmans raises you more frequently i am told.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure your people are happy. My department managers loved me but upper management couldn't keep me happy with my hours so i had to leave.

    I have been working at TOPS Markets

    Pros

    It's a friendly environment. The people I work with are accommodating when it comes to time off and vacations. It's a good place to start.

    Cons

    Mostly the hours. Being part time only allows up to 32 but depending on department it might be less. That depends where you are though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the lower level workers more. That's not in a negative way because they do listen.

    I worked at TOPS Markets part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    People that have worked years have senority

    Cons

    Otherwise you get 16 hours. Maybe 20, if someone is on vacation. Even though they're almost constantly understaffed. And they refused to pay me above minimum wage regardless of all my experience in the deli, including having worked there before. But they want you to work like a dog for 100 bucks a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying people what their worth and maybe you wouldn't have such a high turnover rate.
