    I worked at A&P part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    During my time at A&P, I met a lot of great people I will never forget. Some of my coworkers I still talk to on a regular basis and we reminisce on times we shared together during our time there. They were willing to work around my school schedule (college and high school) and for the most part, covered my shifts when I had to take off for various reasons. They were usually pretty good with taking your back if a customer disagreed with you and would take your word over the customer's.

    Cons

    The GM of my area was the most arrogant person I've ever met. He was rude to all the employees in the store and never had nice words to say. Also, the management within the store picked favorites and everyone knew it. They would rewards their favorites with hours (which were hard to come by for part timers) and also gave them more room to change positions. The pay was AWFUL, as it is for a part-time job. There was no reason to work harder, because you would be making the same as the person standing next to you no matter how hard you worked. There was no reason to stay within the company because it was clearly not improving or have any room for promotions/pay raises.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your employees if they work hard. Try to treat every equally and fairly.
