    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits for full time and department head positions. If you are willing to work hard and prove yourself you can move up and do very well.

    Cons

    this company is a bit too top heavy, and dosnt always give the store level associates the help and resources they need to get the job done effectively.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    train and develop more of your people, we loose more good help because we dont always take care of our people.

    I have been working at Stop & Shop as a contractor (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 full-time (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 part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    good people but sometimes stress can be a factor in the way when I left Price chopper I was a cashier at the time I was there and afterwards I applied to become a cashier for the Framingham stop and shop but I found out it never happened I ended up bagging and repeating the same for over 14 strange years with no promotion and no move up in the company because of management changes this it what's holding me back I need to change my line of work badly

    Cons

    I have been a great person I have no real honest complaints from the previous management they were great and I was their top guy the only real issue I really truly have is the upstairs break room is that's needs sever cleaning every morning because when I go up stairs to relax and eat something before I go on the floor it's always a giant mess and I have to eat outside because it's very nasty and I wouldn't be surprised to see the board of health close the store because of this type of issue in this case someone needs to get on this I mean every morning thank you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    like II said before the upstairs break room needs more attention to be cleaned every morning that is all because it just can't be left for someone else to go after that is all
