    Pros

    Great Staff and they give you the tools to succeed if you work hard. The best part is the job listing board where you can see the current full-time job listings. You got to love equal opportunity and you always get an interview.

    Cons

    Really can't say there are many cons, besides if you're part time you really get the short end of the stick for hours ( like a lot of places.) Don't take that as a con though. People get sick so with people getting sick means you get hours.

    I have been working at TOPS Markets part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Flexible schedule for part-timers (good around school)
    -Union benefits are actually pretty nice if you need them, even part-timers get them
    -Low stress, though this depends A TON on what store you work at and what position you have
    -Opportunity to move into management if you can convince yourself the company isn't going to fail soon

    Cons

    -Management is completely incompetent. They like to hire from within, and despite having a steady stream of bright young college students, they like to pick whoever sucks up the most.
    -As a part timer you're treated like an incompetent child. Don't bother using your brain to streamline things, they don't care and don't deserve it.
    -Corporate could care less about the day-to-day, they don't give stores the money to fix operational issues and the floor team is left trying to explain it away.
    -pay is VERY sub-par for every position but store manager

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like humans and not pawns, lower your prices, and you might have a stone's throw of actually competing with wegmans.

    I worked at TOPS Markets (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    very good company to work for , there is room to grow in management. Growing company with several locations to work at through out NY state.

    Cons

    Not much to say negatively, payroll is extremely tight, training programs are weak however they are improving them in recent months.

    Advice to Management

    Good company to grow with especially if you are willing to relocate. Most of the training is on the job so if you are aggressive you could excel at Tops markets.

    I worked at TOPS Markets part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The boss that I had was caring and willing to work with all of her employee's. She treated us like the adults that we were and expected the same in return. Always there when you needed and stuck for you if management had a issue.

    Cons

    management seems to care more for their profit margin then it cares for its employee's.

    Advice to Management

    if you care more for your employee's then they will give back more and like their job more instead of only coming to work for a paycheck.

    Pros

    Part time workers get health insurance, flexable schedule, there isn't really anything else good

    Cons

    The hours suck. You can work a morning shift or a night shift and it's hard to get holidays off.

    Advice to Management

    Don't understaff your stores. You are cutting too many hours and your pay is terrible.
