Produce Clerk (Current Employee) – Amsterdam, NY – October 30, 2013
The job in of itself was fun, laid back, and all around enjoyable. The pay may not have been the greatest, as it relied entirely upon how many hours available to be given any individual which at times were not very impressive.
I learned a great deal while working here, including the importance of communication, both with fellow workers and management, as well as with customers. Being able to effectively talk to anyone about an issue, or just to chat about a product, really helped make the days enjoyable and allowed me the opportunity to learn a great deal from those around me.
The hardest aspect of the job wasn't necessarily the requirements of the job itself, but what the requirements were of me by upper management. I realize that not all stores were operated quite like my own, but it really did make it difficult to carry out what I know to be primary job functions, just to satisfy the requests and expectations of a select one or two individuals.
All in all, unreasonable expectations aside, it is an enjoyable place to work part time in between jobs, unless you can qualify yourself for management training.
Low pay, at times very few hours, and poor upper management

I enjoyed working here everything was face paced which I loved the customers and the hours you practically made your own hours there everything was online based so the had a dashboard where you went to ask for time off or check your schedule

Good job to have while in highschool or just looking for a decent job to make some money.. compensation isnt great aand advancement opportunities arent ideal.... my day as deli clerk consisted of taking customer orders and completing them in a timely manner as some times were more rushed than others.. cleaning equipment and department also taking trash out at the end of the night
Cake Decorator/Baker (Former Employee) – Chenango Bridge, NY – September 10, 2017
I worked for Price Chopper for 24 years. I was a meat wrapper, a seafood manager and then I worked in the bakery. I learned many skills working for this company and the benefits were great. I relocated to Pennsylvania and Price Chopper wouldnt let me keep my full time position in the Pa. Store closest to me so I left and took a job at Giant Martins.
Deli Teammate/Barista (Former Employee) – Hopkinton, MA – September 6, 2017
I felt overused without the proper compensation for my efforts. I constantly encountered problems with management as while I was a barista at Price Chopper, the management changed roughly 4 times, and each time the manager was less qualified than any barista working there at the time.
Unpaid lunches, short breaks, unpaid time off, difficult management
Customer Service SPV/Bookkeeping Admin (Former Employee) – Roeland Park, KS – September 6, 2017
great people you can advance but your pay doesn't match how much you advance. great job for teens not for an adult trying to pay bills.hardest part is when it is understaffed and you do hard work for little pay
Deli Clerk (Former Employee) – E Greenbush, NY – September 6, 2017
I was my manager tom fox right hand but didn't get paid for the stress and responsibility I had. I worked there 8 years thinking that was going to be what I was going to do the rest of my life .... I'm grateful I on another path and found my calling in sales!
Front End Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) – Saratoga Springs, NY – September 5, 2017
Checking customers out of the store. Processing all payments and answering any questions that they had about certain things. If the manager/supervisor had something for us to do, she would politely ask us to do certain things around the store. The easiest part about the job was restocking shelves with groceries. The hardest part would have to be doing certain payments.
Floral Clerk (Acting Manager) (Former Employee) – Palatine Bridge, NY – September 5, 2017
Price Chopper is a wonderful starter job. There is advancement but it is limited however. The pay is competitive and there are benefits but it is still a tad low. Overall the management is great and it is great to get your feet wet if it is your first job.
It's working for minimum wage in retail. The work can be stressful, customers can be annoying, and you work weekends and holidays. During my time there the only saving grace were my two managers, who were two of the hardest working people in the entire store.
