    I have been working at Market Basket part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Probably the best reason to work here is because they are good about giving you time off. If you need to take time off, all you have to do is write down a request a week before the schedule goes up and you will get the time off that you need. Also you meet a lot of regulars that come in and some of them are very friendly so that's a plus.

    Cons

    The worst part of working here is the fact that the managers DO NOT care how many hours you get. Sometimes you get 6, sometimes you get 17, sometimes you get 26. I know it's different for every store, but for the most part I've had a bad experience working at this store. And yes I know I should quit, but I need to get another job before I do that. I have been working here almost 2 years and it's just time for something else.

    Advice to Management

    STOP only caring about yourself and start caring about your employees. You treat your employees like dirt and you walk around the store acting like you're better than anyone else. Ticks me off more than anything.
