    I worked at Stop & Shop full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working at the bake shop was not difficult, it was easy to grasp all the work that needed to be done and to create a schedule for yourself to accomplish all the tasks in a timely manner before having to close.

    Cons

    If you are closing the shop by yourself andthe shipment of incoming inventory is late that night, you can get overwhelmed with the amount of work that needs to be done before having to close the shop on time.

    Advice to Management

    Have two employees working on nights when there's a large order of inventory that comes in and needs to be stocked in the freezer/bake shop.

    I have been working at Stop & Shop part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Somewhat flexible with hours. 5 percent discount is better that zero percent I suppose? You be the judge on that one.

    Cons

    Not enough compensation for the work done at times. I attend college in the city and often have a heavy workload. I was hired under the impression that management would work with me on being flexible. My impression was wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just make anybody a manager, their not all qualified for the position.
