I worked at Stop & Shop part-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Flexible schedules, mostly part time. Great for young moms, students or retired folks. Not perfect, but okay Medical, Dental and Vision Insurance after a while for just the worker, good for young students without dependents.

People are very friendly. It felt like family.

Cons

Low wages, poor raises, union based wages, wages not based on incentives, so regardless of how hard you work you will never get a raise or a bonus. There isn't much room for promotions, and full time positions are very limited, and hardly available to the average person.

Wages are much lower than standard rates.... if you work anywhere else you'd be paid much more with better benefits, but I'm not sure how flexible they are with their schedules.

Advice to Management

Offer incentives for hard workers...some of the workers do little to nothing and ride on the backs of the people who care...

    I have been working at Stop & Shop part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are nice, flexible hours, capable of climbing the ladder (though it seems to be fairly difficult)

    Cons

    Management is always under stress, not the same business it used to be, treat employees disrespectfully, only care about customers.
