Deli Clerk

June 2021 • Pennington, NJ

What I liked

The deli manager was nice, and the work was pretty chill in general.

What I wish was different

The hiring manager rushed me through the hiring process, so I didn't get parts of the training that I was supposed to get, like a tour of the store.

Advice

Don't be afraid to ask questions about things you don't understand or don't yet know. Also, don't let the annoying customers ruin the nice ones for you.

Cashier

July - August 2020 • Cranston, RI

What I liked

I liked my staff, cool kids and very diverse in race and ages

What I wish was different

The wages, I had heard that they had removed our hazard pay of $1 a month prior to my beginning, which would have allowed me to be paid $11.80 per hour instead of my $10.80

Advice

Keep a cool head, some customers just want to fight to say they "won" and feel like their cashiers are below them.

Customer Service Department Head

January 2018 • Piscataway, NJ

What I liked

I have been working at Stop & Shop for well over two years and I can say definitively that there is a strong employee-customer relationship. Overall, customers and employees value each other greatly and it manifests itself in efficient lines, flowing conversations, and a clean store. This store is a well-oiled machine with knowledgeable cashiers, top-notch customer service, and loyal customers.

What I wish was different

Stop & Shop might be a bit "behind the eight ball" on its back-end technology, particularly the Kronos and ACE CC register tracking system. There is no continuously available inventory for employees to easily check.

Advice

Invest in your customers by being respectful, providing competitive prices, and following through on concerns and complaints. Working at the store has been a lesson in people skills and retail business strategy.
