    I worked at A&P part-time

    Pros

    Offered flexible hours and extensive training. Paid Holidays or holidays off. Promoted from within the company. Room to grow.

    Cons

    Low wages and not much room to grow compensation wise. Lots of pay freezes and negotiating for any chance at a raise.

    Lots of turnovers in the management department. Could work better as a cohesive unit instead of three separate entities. Could use more team meetings and getting to know staff better.
