Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I quit after reading that the company donated 40,000 dollars to the sen, menendez defense fund, They gave money to a known criminal. I guess menedez will pay them back somehow, its what criminals do."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"There's too many to count. They have no respect for employees, especially the people who have dedicated many years to their success. They have no respect for the families of employees. They have morons and wackos as managers and supervisors. They make money in spite of the people who are running the company. They have crossed a line with me, which will be dealt with a force that has never been seen. Legally, of course. Don't ever work for these scumbags, and most certainly, don't spend a penny shopping there."
Former Employee - Sales Associate/Cashier says"If you aren't a favorite you're not moving up. Limited access to full time Few hours (want full time work for part time hours) Horrible raises with no bonuses. Really a bad company to work for impossible to move up unless you're one of the favorites."
Former Employee - Cashier says"Horrible pay. $4.85 in total raises after 11 years. What was I thinking?? Good first job for a teen living at home I guess. Always understaffed to try and save payroll even when the stores are showing profits over previous years."
Former Employee - Dairy Clerk says":low pay, I worked my butt off and still made only 9.60$ an hour. Ridiculous! The night crew would constantly slack off causing me to finish their mess."
Former Employee - Deli says"Nasty managers who sweet talk the owners and supervisors and then treat the store level employees like crap. Nasty, nasty customers. Flexible hours means you have to be flexible about the hours not the company. Union dues automatically taken from your paycheck which pay huge salaries to the union people who do a lousy, lousy job of representing the employees. Terrible company culture. Big egos of small people who run the stores."
Former Employee - Seafood Clerk says"I had previously had 10 years experience working for another Shoprite Company in the past, Glass Gardens. I started as a Deli Clerk and had received Seafood Department training, from the Supervisor of the chain - really Seafood Manager training to open the seafood department in a store that I was at that was switching from a simple self serve style case setup to a full service department. I filleted fish, deboned, you name it, I could do it. I reapplied in 2011 and took the job when Inserra called me. I worked my tail off to get the sales up in the Department that Northvale store and I know I did. I got letters written into corporate from my customers, and I really did love what I did. Since, I'd personally had owned businesses myself, I took a "business owner mentality" to my job. I put in for Seafood Manager and never heard back. I would have taken it to another level. I see why everyone that has been there for 20 - 30 years is either burnt out or just doesn't give a rat's tail anymore. Upper management and the VP play favorites and don't treat everyone with respect. It really was a harsh environment that I am glad to be free of. I don't even like going into the store to shop."
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Racist, Sexist, Homophobic environment. If you're not Italian and male, good luck expecting any sort of respect. I've heard female managers be referred to as "women managers" by management. Since most of upper management started out working as teenage cashiers or clerks, I was reassured that they know how to do parts of my job because they "used to wear a skirt". Don't work here, don't shop here either."
Current Employee - Overnight Stocker says"I am part time but have been often scheduled 48 hrs/wk. What sense does that make? When hired, I was told my work week would be 3 to 4 days. So far, I have been working 5-6 days. Mostly, it's been 6 days. Definitely not what I signed up for. Disrespectful management. Management does not treat overnight staff with respect or as human beings. Uses disrespectful language with employees. Unrealistic expectations from management to finish work within shift. Some employees have easy aisles to stock, while others like myself (at times) have more difficult aisles with a heavier workload. However, regardless of workload we are expected to finish by the end of our shift just the same. Locked in building during the night. I do not agree with this action, and it may pose a safety concern. We should be allowed to leave the store for breaks and lunch. I want some fresh air when I go on a break. Unhealthy work environment. Employees are allowed to smoke in the building. So for us nonsmokers who do not want to be exposed to second-hand smoke, we have no choice. Employees smoke while working and on break, meaning while items and merchandise is being handled and stocked, an employee may be smoking simultaneously with a lit cigarette in hand. Pay could be better, and better reflect the effort and amount of work needed for overnight stocking."
Current Employee - Overnight Stockman says"Scheduling posted day before week begins. Benefits constantly a challenge. No possible career."
Cashier (Former Employee) says"Customers are rude! Managers have their favorites, corporate could care less. Stay away. All this company cares about is the dollar that’s going in there pockets. Raises are horrible 15 cents if they even care to give it to you.BreaksManagement"
Cashier (Former Employee) says"no longer the company i applied for. no place for advancement, terrible management. cut throat environment where nothing you do is right. if given the chance i would have given back my position in a heartbeat"
2nd Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) says"Lots of favoritism. Employees promoted ahead of deserving ones. No clear rules on dress code, policies or anything. I was 2nd shift full-timer in charge and was undermined for trying to do things properly. The customers were the best thing about this job and some of my fellow employees.Some fellow employees, most of the customersManagement"
Night Stocker (Former Employee) says"bad management and head ceo, not enough help, long hours union plays games with you, to many head games with bosses, thats the bad . The good is some times you get a break from work.insurancework associates"
Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) says"If you aren't part of the group then your manager won't advance you. Then don't inform you about benefits since they don't want you to know about it. Management really doesn't listen to employee complaints fairly to well. Worked long hours and wasn't appreciated for it."
Cashier (part-time) says"Like the title suggests, its an alright job. You get paid enough (part time) to have some spending money for the week. I worked there while I went to school so I could have gas in my car and have money for the weekends."
Front-End Associate (Former Employee) says"I took this job as a summer job. It pays well and was good for my needs for the summer. Beyond that I would not consider it a career but something more temporary.Good breaksCustomers"
Deli Clerk (Current Employee) says"Ugh. No enjoyment whatsoeverThe compensation is garbageCo-workers range from droll to outright offensiveMonotonous, unchanging workWilling to work around your scheduleUnionized"
Front End Manager (Current Employee) says"You can learn a lot about the working environment and customers and from other employees. You’re always moving around at this job. I was able to move up at my job. Manager told me I have to be an example. Always working. Doing more than what I should be doing. Offer to stay extra hours.BenefitsShort breaks, cuts hours"
Loss Prevention Officer (Former Employee) says"Pretending being a shopper was fun, meeting your co-workers eachday, The hardest part was having to apprehend someone for shoplifting, going to court waiting for a long period of time.stopping a shoplifter for stealingbeing among my associates"
