    Pros

    Very flexible with scheduling. You can get as much time off as you need. Received a small raise after 6 months of employment. There seem to be actual opportunities for advancement if you stick with it for long enough.

    Cons

    Recently, hours have been cut as they are hiring more cashiers than they probably need, and the paycheck has gone down with it. You'll need good insoles in your shoes, and I'd personally recommend you get shoes that are made for standing in for long hours at a time.

    I have been working at Stop & Shop full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    most co worker are pretty cool so you can make some new friends
    if your full time you get insurance and benefits
    easy job
    union

    Cons

    no hope for career advancement
    money is ok
    no insurance for part timers
    when u get full time in produce or meat you have to work all nights most of the time til u get promoted again which can take anywhere from 4 to 10 years
    union-guys that have 20-30 years make 25-32 dollars an hour and dont do any work it always gets left for the 2nd shift guys. these guys believe they are entitled to do nothing because they have so many years in. these guys should wake up everyday and thank god they make great money for a job that requires no education or skills and any guy off the street could do. this is way young guys cant advance and get crap money now

    Pros

    Not sure if they are any

    Cons

    This business is going to fail under this current management. They are a bunch of egotistical narcissists that are out of touch with their personnel and the communities that they do business in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They are running the company into the ground so I am not sure they really care at this point.

    Current Employee - Store Manager in New York, NY (US)

    I have been working at Stop & Shop full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Pay, bonus, generally co-workers, benefits and pto

    Cons

    Completely unrealistic labor structure yet no one speaks up to the higher ups. Everyone just moves hours around in order to meet "fix" numbers, wasting tons of time. Way too much time wasted on paperwork, filling out charts, clipboards etc. We literally leave things empty and have lines due to filling out worthless paperwork yet we preach productivity. Everyone passes the blame above store level when it comes to serious issues. Travel pay is not based geographically which is asinine. I could go on and on but the company won't listen anyways and I'll continue to take home my six figure salary so to preach managements motto- it is what it is

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold someone accountable for the complete downfall these past year. It's obvious fix isn't working stop continuing to drive down the company

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

    Pros

    Flexibility, benefits such as paid time off, tuition reimbursement, etc, good experience, good environment

    Cons

    I handle all cash that flows through the sore and account for the store on a store based level, as well as assist the front end manager in their day to day operations all while making a whopping $10.55 an hour. I've also been trying to advance and seem to be getting no where while they continue to hire people from our competition such as price chopper.
