    work to engage the younger employees so they feel connected to the company rather than a random worker

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Roche Bros. Supermarkets part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great for learning a strong work ethic. If you commit yourself in high school they will always help you out part time in college and post grad while you try and figure out your career.

    Cons

    Too much company wide reliance on good part time employees. Those who work here as a career seem to rely too heavily on high school/ college kids to step up and go above and beyond while the managers disappear for hours.

    Advice to Management

    Check yourselves. Young kids are great for the labor but they are part timers and should't care more about their jobs than a career employee (i.e. manager).

    I worked at Roche Bros. Supermarkets (More than a year)

    Pros

    You meet some nice people and some managers are nice

    Cons

    They give you a review and a raise every year, however since I was hired in January and minimum wage went up in January I never got my raise. But people who were hired after January got a raise so I was cheated out of a raise. When I asked in July they said "You're not getting one"

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. You say the golden rule is to treat others with respect but you don't treat your own employees with the respect and care the deserve

    -decent team
    -convenient location

    Cons

    -high employee turnover rate
    - rude/condescending store management
    -stuck-up customers

    -ugly uniform

    Advice to Management

    would be nice if management could be more down to earth. you're just store managers, not CEOs of multi-million firms!


  9. "Not valued as an employee"

    Pros

    Able to take off time easily. Nice coworkers.

    Cons

    Even after 3 years of working there, I was paid the same as the new employees (because when minimum wage went up, it erased the raises I earned)
    Schedules for the next week come out the Friday before, so you wouldn't know if you were working on Sunday until 2 days prior.

    Rude manager and snobby customers
