    I worked at Acme Markets part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    As a Pharmacy Technician, I had the pleasure to work with very professional and knowledgeable Pharmacists. We worked together as a team, and each person was treated with respect and dignity. It was a pleasure working in a positive environment, with a Pharmacy Manager that leads by example !

    Cons

    Fast pace, can be stressful at times

    High quality people work for your Pharmacy. Please support them, so they are not understaffed.

    I have been working at Acme Markets (More than a year)

    Pros

    work around your needs for the most part.

    Cons

    the front end is absolutely horrible. customer service is rude, they stand around more than they work and if you ask a questions they act like its the end of the world. when you work the front end they expect you to fidget around the whole time with you section even if there is nothing to do(cleaned your area, no customers). if its cold while you work they don't care, your not allowed to wear any jacket/hood. even if its all black with no logos. the only people that actually matter to store are the managers they treat the rest of the store like garbage.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting your employee's hours in half to save money you don't need. most of us are working here to pay bills, noone is working for fun, we nee all the hours we can get. and stop over lapping hours for those of us that have 2 jobs and need to depend on you work well within our hours.

    I have been working at Acme Markets part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The family atmosphere, incentives other than 5 star awards for customer service surveys, and better treatment of your employees would make the place attractive to newer employees

    Cons

    Not having ideal work scheduling, no managerial cooperation with union contract negotiations and more incentives for those who are asked to work 8 hour shifts and having adequate staff to handle the loads of customers during all shifts

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to stop cutting your employees hours so that you have adequate staff to wait on our customers and you have a duty to your employees to treat us a lot better than you do

    Pros

    Easy to do. Check out customers final purchases. Flexible enough schedule where you can go to school and they will work around your school schedule.

    Cons

    Sometimes you get rude customers but it's a part of the job so deal with it the best way you can. Also, weekends are part of the work week.
