    Good experience, fine place to work

    I worked at Stop & Shop

    Pros

    Managers are kind, there are no problems if you do your job. When people slack off is when they have a problem. I did my job and never had any issues whatsoever

    Cons

    I would say that there is very little room for upward mobility, but that comes with the territory I suppose. Managers are fine, receptive to any personal issue/need you may have, so long as you approach it professionally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. When you treat employees with respect, they'll work hard.

    I have been working at Stop & Shop as a contractor for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Benefits are on par with other companies. There is always room to develop both personally and your team. Associate discount and gas rewards.

    Cons

    Some of the contracts with the collective bargaining units are archaic and do not allow a qualified person to move past someone who has more seniority. There are many inflexible and unqualified people advanced who in other companies would be demoted, but there stay in position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use ROI everytime you come up with a new plan.

    I have been working at Stop & Shop

    Pros

    Benefits, Holiday Pay, Paid vacation after a year, Union.

    Cons

    Often poor lower level management.
    Lack of responsibilities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try for some sort of culture and more training to lower level management and supervisors.

    I worked at Stop & Shop part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Was close to home. Time and a half on sundays (walmart does the same thing without the union dues). Actually, my boyfriend works at walmart and there is not one benefit i had over him.

    Cons

    Entire families work here and play favorites. I was one of the few that wasn't related to anyone when i got hired. Management allows favorites to fool around while one person cashiers and bags alone with a long line of customers waiting. Stupid rules like not being able to drink a water bottle even though the registers suck up all the moister from the air in the front end. Boring job. 1 hour working here is the equivalent of 5 hrs working elsewhere. Must be part of union to work here and the union takes $10 per week out of your check...they did that to me for 4 years and i never used the union for anything, ever. Don't work here. My boyfriend makes more at walmart By working there 2 years than i did working 4 years at stop and shop.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't play favorites so everyone actually works and not just 2/15 people on shift. Oh and learn how to actually manage people

    I have been working at Stop & Shop part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Most of the coworkers are nice and enjoyable to interact with, due to our proximity to the suburbs lots of attractive women enter the store (LOL hey it's something), store is generally on the laid back side, relatively easy to get time off

    Cons

    Most of the time the upper management can't get their heads out of their butts, constant politics and ridiculous issues that shouldn't be happening, very often the front end is lacking in key supplies such as plastic or paper bags, not enough hours going around, lately being a unionized company is equally as bad as it is good, no health insurance anymore, overall a dismal atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your crap together. I can't believe this store is even in business still.

    I have been working at Stop & Shop part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Not many. A few good workers who genuinely try to help new employees. Most are rotten and hate their jobs. The produce isn't bad to purchase if a good worker stocks it properly and ensures the quality.

    Cons

    It is an abusive environment. As a new employee, you are desperate to try to learn as much as possible in the first few months to be competent at your job. Coworkers withhold information from you and you have to figure most things out yourself with little and sometimes no help. If for some reason you do figure things out yourself (we can't have that, since you are continuously condemned as "stupid"), then they go to management and complain. Customers swarm around displays when you are stocking and get right up in your face and prevent you from working and they take produce from the U-Boat as they please. A very ruthless and cutthroat place to work. You have to watch your back at all times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is only concerned with maintaining their own jobs. Advice is not useful.
