    I have been working at Market Basket part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Bonuses, occasionally good management

    Cons

    Upper management is rude, unfriendly, abuse their power, belittles associates and managers under them. Being a front end assistant is doing a majority of the front end managers job for part time pay.

    Advice to Management

    Become more friendly, interact with all associates

    I have been working at Market Basket part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There is a great deal of flexibility among management when it comes to part-time work. They are very understanding of the fact that younger employees often cannot actively predict their work availability, and as a result, are always willing to negotiate hours

    Cons

    Not all customer interactions are pleasant. There are customers out there that are very difficult to assist to the best of your ability. You sometimes have to be on your toes. There are plenty of unusual situations that sometimes are hard to navigate

    I worked at Market Basket part-time

    Pros

    My manager and assistant manager were great, I was able to work at one store while at home on break from college and transfer back and forth to store near school, also very flexible and understanding with hours

    Cons

    Other part time employees are sometimes not motivated/stand around a lot when work could be done. Many full time employees struggle with work life balance as it is a 6 day work week for them.
