    I worked at Stop & Shop part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Snacks were tight, work was never really boring, nice people to work with generally, most managers felt like they were on your side.

    Cons

    No real training, some managers are annoying, customers can be rude or at least "quirky," the drainage disposal system kept breaking while I was there.

    Advice to Management

    I know it's genuinely hard to find time to train people but it pays off so that they're not still messing basic things up two months in.

    I worked at Stop & Shop part-time

    Pros

    My co-workers were the best part of this job. Also, I was usually able to accumulate a fair amount of hours in a week although the number of hours per week were somewhat variable.

    Cons

    The managers and other department heads who decided to try to manage the cashiers when it was not their job made the job unpleasant. When employers make errors, there is a right and wrong way to handle it and my particular managers did not know how to respectfully reprimand employers. Also, a fair amount of your pay is withheld and you won't be able to recoup what was withheld until the end of the year. The more hours you work, the more your pay is withheld which is a working disincentive. Additionally, the store never closes even for really terrible weather, so be prepared to show up or call in.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to partner with human resource managers in order to improve their interaction with employers and to learn how to more respectfully discipline employers and still have employees remain motivated to work for you.

    Pros

    The benefits are good for only working part time. The boss works with you when making the schedule. The meat room is always cool.

    Cons

    The customers can be annoying. If you do your job well you can expect to pick up the slack of others
