        I have been working at Market Basket part-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        Flexible Hours. If you have to change hours or days because of an important issue, they will change it for you. Nice bonuses after working 1 year Great and Friendly co-workers Managers and Supervisors are wonderful people Minimum wage plus time and a half on Sundays Clean Environment Great starter job if you want experience Get a decent paycheck on Thursdays

        Cons

        Very busy on the weekends. It's worse during Holidays and Sports Games. It's tedious to sack 400$ worth of items in a long line under pressure Strict on Uniforms Parking lot is dirty and busy on the weekends

        Advice to Management

        Have Self Checkout lanes to lower waiting lines with supervisors to look over to prevent shop lifting. Increase the wage to 12$ - 14$ per hour. 5% off employee discounts would be a plus. Have a better cart stacking system to prevent traffic near the door.
