    none

    poor excuse for a store

    especially after there are whole foods and aldis every where

    I have been working at Stop & Shop part-time

    Pros

    Easy to get hired, able to schedule 3 weeks in advance only, if you have an appointment, but don't mess up!

    Cons

    In bottle room forced to lift weights higher than in job description and forced to smash stuck together tubs of crushed glass, a major hazard to a persons eyes and body. In compactors, managers are supposed to attend them when in use and they don't and decieve upper management about it. I've seen OSHA violations with the compactors like operating when they should be locked out, safety cages damaged, people expected to climb in compactors in order to fix them despite being unsafe. Forced to work on hands and knees. Expected to do contractor's jobs and management refusing to call plumbers for days. No toilet paper for several days throughout store. Hounding and harassing workers, the good ones, to do more and more to their limits with no regard to their health or feelings. Management taking things out on employees and power playing middle management bullying singling out and bullying others. Watch out if you want a referral, it won't be good.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage and act more professional. Stop abusing good people, a company is only as good as its management. Provide a safer work environment and provide the tools, safety and otherwise, to do the tasks you demand of employees.

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

    Pros

    Nothing, Its been going down hill for many years now

    Cons

    Company chooses to spend money on useless technology and items for stores. New Lane hawks are a total waste of money. Carousel bagging areas are a total nightmare. Customers are too "worthy" to take their own bags off of it. New "Fun" shirts are extremely inappropriate. I mean really, Never say no? I have had customers make disgusting remarks about the line on the shirt. Double back money promotion? Another way for people to abuse the system.

    Do they not understand that all of these things do nothing for the store? It drains the money for hour hours and we are left with no help. Tonight we had only two cashiers on a Saturday evening. We cannot open self scan attendee anymore due to the new self check out "Cubicle". No one in other dept are cross trained. Had lines up the you know what. Nothing we could do about it.

    Advice to Management

    Managment knows we are extremly short staffed. They are expecting the front enders to do more grocery work such as blocking. We have returns over flowing and they expect us to do those, block aisles, and take care of customers with only two cashiers. Get real. This stress is not worth minimum wage. Oh and there is terrible training. All of our new cashiers are totally clueless. The fulltimers expect them to know what to do without even telling them... really...
