    I have been working at Gristede's Foods part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The hours are very flexible.
    My coworkers are all so sweet which allows me to have a good time sometimes.
    The union protects you depending on the situation.

    Cons

    The pay is barely enough for me as a college student to get by.
    There is no discount or even any type of deal for employees.
    Is isn't exactly sanitary in my working area.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the pay! Give workers a discount on stores items!

    I have been working at Gristede's Foods part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Easy to get in. Basically you apply and get hired pretty easily when they are hiring.
    - Laid back and apart of a union after 60 days.

    Cons

    - Pay is horrible. Working hard will never get you a raise.
    - Hours vary. You could work 15 hours one week, 25 the next.
    - No appreciation. EVERYBODY who's been there longer than a year says this. There may be a star manager somewhere who does appreciate you, but to be honest, if they're that good they probably wouldn't work at Gristedes where a lot of things are out of their control.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your workers. Talk to them. Try to help them at times. Thank them.
    It really takes very little at times to make someone happy, it's too bad my manager doesn't know this
