Cashier (Former Employee), Hamden, CT – June 11, 2014
Pros: assisting the customers, meeting new people and learning new things.
Cons: hours and no raise.
A typical day at PriceRite was busy because besides Stop & Shop or WalMart we were a popular grocery store. I learned how to become a team player and a leader when working with my other co-workers. Management was very supportive and communicated well with employees and customers. The hardest part of the job was nothing. But the most enjoyable part of – more... the job was meeting and interacting with the customers and just the job itself. – less
Third shift grocery, Stocker (Former Employee), Woonsocket, RI – January 28, 2014
Pros: third shift
Cons: part time employees treated awful.
I would typically have my own department to manage. I learned product placement and display building. Management was horrible to part time employees and great to full timers. Hardest part of the job was inventory. The best part of job was third shift hours.
Third shift grocery stocker (Former Employee), Woonsocket, RI – November 25, 2013
Pros: eight our shifts
Cons: company policies
I overall liked the steady amount of work to keep me busy. I learned product placement and display building. I did not like the management. They placed little value on there workers. I liked working third shift and pushing myself to do my best.
Cashier (Current Employee), District Heights, MD – June 3, 2013
Pros: if you need the money it's worth it.
Cons: short breaks, you are asked to do more than the job for which you applied.
The work is fast paced. The environment is friendly. They have very flexible hours and always work with employees schedules. They also have great benefits after you've been employed for a year or more. Holiday pay and Sunday time and a half when you join.
Night Crew Manager (Current Employee), Hyde Park, MA – April 8, 2013
Manage and instruct crew members to perform specific tasks. Pull product out of the back room which can be difficult at times due to lack of space and mobility. Unload and receive trailers during the night to stock shelves, floor and cases with low product levels. The most enjoyable part of work is being able to develop relations with the other members – more... on an professional level, hone their work habits and skills as well as create friendships and network with my coworkers. The management team for the store is very strict and at times can have organization issues. – less
Great store to shop at to save money in your wallet but not a great place third shift working part time due to minimum wage.
Overnight Stocker (Current Employee), Swansea, MA – December 5, 2012
Pros: its a job.
Cons: part time, minimum wage, 3rd shift
My poor review on the company is solely based on wage amount that they pay someone working part time. They look to hire part timers there because it saves them plenty of bucks than hiring a full time staff. Most of the people employed there I find work only part time and some have worked there for a significant amount of time. Others only last weeks – more... to months, (like myself) because of minimum wage, hard work, and 3rd shift are at the bottom of the barrel for jobs and we all are looking for something better. Well this is at very least the bottom of the barrel. Besides being a employee there, in a customers view it is a great place to shop and save money because there are a lot of deals, but this is not why I am here nor here writing a review about but the environment we employee's see it is... – less
Cashier (Former Employee), Bridgeport, CT – November 24, 2012
Working at Pricerite was a good experience for handling money and learning how to balance school and work for a student. The management works with you to figure out what times are best for you to come in if your a student or have other important obligations.
Supervisor / Bookkeeper (Current Employee), Woonsocket, RI – October 2, 2012
Pros: vacations after 1 year.
Cons: unorganized and not enough employees.
Some management issues every now and then, but overall, the job itself is fairly secure and straightforward. A typical day for myself at work involves me handling a large amount of cashiers on the front end of the store. This includes getting breaks in order, providing them with change, handling customer service issues, handling interpersonal issues, – more... and any other problems that come up. My co-workers treat me with respect most of the time, and are pretty good overall. I've learned how to deal with employee relations a lot more than I have in the past, and in turn it seems that most of the people in my particular store end up asking me for help when it comes to dealing with some light human resources issues.
The hardest part of the job is when it is very noticeable that we do not have enough employees for front end work. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping people and making them realize that you're there for them, and that someone has their back. – less
Cashier (Former Employee), Bridgeport, CT – August 24, 2012
Cons: short breaks, not alot of hours, not alot of advancing opportunity
A typical day definitely involved rushing the whole time. Its constantly busy there. From ringing up the groceries to packing it in the cart by yourself. The hardest part was just having to keep up with packing the cart and dealing with EBT cards.
