      Pros

      They try and employ you close to home. If they don’t like you be prepared to drive.

      Cons

      They allow people to disrespect managers andy each other, a lot of lazy people work there and get away with it. Gordon Reed actually told managers if they aren’t happy with their hazard pay to cash the check and leave the company. (Wish I had a recorder for that telephone conference) I was fine with it but I felt that kind of statement let you know how he didn’t value you. He’s could have been more diplomatic. He wouldn’t have the balls to say that to the union workers because they would strike like they did in New England. They have ELMs for employees to learn and most managers change log ins for employees and do the electronic learning manual for them for a better score because they get in trouble of they don’t have a good quota of employees completing these elms. You can make decent money if you work Sundays where you get an extra days pay and an extra 10%, same for holidays, except you get paid for the day and another days pay. Everyone is either miserable or a bully making you miserable. Good Luck if you decide to work for this company.

      Pros

      - Shortish hours - Friends as Co-Workers - Union Job so job security is amazing! - Guaranteed Christmas day off - 1 Week paid vacation (20 hours) after 1 year employed.

      Cons

      - Breaks are way too short (Only 15 minutes if you work 6 or less hours) - Inconsistent Scheduling making it impossible to make doctors appointments or plan anything out of work - Barely paid above minimum wage which basically becomes minimum wage after union dues - Understaffed on our busiest days and overstaffed on low traffic days - Not very flexible with scheduling, once asked to remove my unavailable day because I could "really be needed" that day. - Even if you're not a Cashier they will still call you to ring if the front end forgot to schedule enough cashiers. - Some supervisors/managers will contradict eachother's orders and no matter what you are in the wrong. - Told to arrive earlier than scheduled time but you get crucified if you clock out 1 minute before your scheduled time without permission from the front desk. -Customers constantly do dumb stuff and you are on the hook for it. -Forced to work in dangerous weather including hurricanes and blizzards(they will never close the store unless mandated by Police/Government order) -Not allowed to kick customers out for not wearing masks despite it being mandated by our state. -Not enough advance for scheduling to be able to make plans - Some positions give a lot more hours than are needed to accomplish all required tasks so sometimes you have to redo the tasks to appease management.

      Pros

      Stop and Shop Corp is always growing. You learn a lot through the training sessions available and just by networking.

      Cons

      Growth is there but you have to do it yourself.

      Good resume builder.

      Pros

      Good way to gain experience and build a resume especially if you don’t have kids or any responsibilities outside of work.

      Cons

      Performative allyship at its finest. 0 initiatives taken to address internal systemic racism (and no transparency if there has been or will be), but tons of talk about money being donated outside of the org. Upper management has too much autonomy in performance reviews, hiring, and promotions with no checks and balances. Work life balance doesn’t exist unless you have a good manager, which is rare (took a worldwide pandemic to allow working from home). Management at the VP level and above is predominately white and male and they set unrealistic expectations for their teams by setting 7/8 a.m. meetings on a regular basis (good luck if you have kids). A lot of teams are understaffed and they expect managers to pick up the slack. Favoritism is visible in who they promote and support. If you challenge any of this they pretend to care, but won’t implement new policies or processes, and ultimately nothing changes.

      Pros

      Good for right out of highschool, if you are looking for experiences in better paying fields, don't stay here for long. Find an internship ASAP. the pay is ok. minimum wage but completely under because by the end of the year it should be fourteen dollars here. Right now its still 13. NYS is supposed to be at 15. IT'S an ETHICAL ISSUE. Go to target. They are paying 16 an hour. Don't waste your time and energy here. Please. Please go somewhere else. For the Love of God, go somewhere else.

      Cons

      Just. Just look at the Pros. That's what you need to know. Like its been years since I've started here and it's just a mess. Don't make the same mistake.
