    I have been working at Stop & Shop part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Average starting wage for the industry. Plenty of hours available. Overtime is available during busier times and inclement weather which causes more call outs. Labor laws in Massachusetts stores give those stores a higher than average starting pay due to a high minimum wage and also mandate time and a half pay on Sunday.

    Cons

    The usual grocery store nonsense. It happens everywhere and Stop&Shop is no exception. The higher minimum wage in Massachusetts probably skews wage data higher for store positions.

    The big issue I have is the refusal to promote part timers to full time who don't own their own car. They do this so that they can transfer full time clerks on a whim, but in a major metropolitan area like Boston, enough alternate transit options exist so this shouldn't always be the deal breaker that they make it out to be.

    Also, in many areas, some stores are chronically short staffed due to lack of interested applicants and so management hires anyone who is the least bit competent. This generally isn't limited to Stop&Shop and also affects surrounding businesses in areas with that issue.

    Advice to Management

    The training program for new hires looks to be a step in the right direction, although only time will tell. The only other thing I can think of is having managers take a few minutes while doing new hire paperwork and do a who's who of department level, store level, and regional level support and management.

    I have been working at Stop & Shop full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very good benefits (vacation, sick time, 401k, etc)

    Cons

    Upper management does not listen to lower level associates

    Advice to Management

    Stop having people do the work of 5 people and get upset when the tasks aren't done in one day!

    I have been working at Stop & Shop part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fun co-workers, managers are willing to work around school schedule, and vacation time.

    Cons

    Low salaries, no room for growth, took away health benefits, and cheap bags customers always complain about. Also there are no raises for going into customer service or becoming a ACSDH. Also, associates have to work all holidays and are opened until 6 on Christmas Eve and Easter, so we are unable to be with families.

    Advice to Management

    Store managers are very nice and willing to listen and talk. Corporate needs to fix their shopping bags, because customers always complain about them. Customer service and ACSDH should get raises for agreeing to move up into those positions.

    I have been working at Stop & Shop part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The wages were decent for part-time work and the schedule was extremely flexible.

    Cons

    There was a sincere lack of structure at this particularly store and lack of communication.

    Advice to Management

    Procedures and trainings need to be better mapped out and tracked. Improve communication between department managers and store managers.
