Great place to work and even more friendly associates!
Produce Department Trainer (Current Employee), Merrimack, NHJune 15, 2015
Pros: excellent management staff, clean employee break room, store sponsored meals on holidays, employee rewards program
Cons: hours are frequently cut
Shaw's has always been a good employer to me and those I work around/with. Management's roster has changed over the four years i have been there but they are never a losing team. My co-workers have been nothing but nice and supportive of every decision i have made, and even at one point put their support behind me as a potential assistant manager when the position was vacant.

slow work place
Sales Clerk (Former Employee), Worcester, MAJune 8, 2015
Cons: short breaks, low pay
Shaw's is not a bad place to work, everyone pretty much seem to keep to their self but in a friendly way. On a typical day business runs well but does not last for long. I worked in the produce department so I got pretty familiar with a lot of food that you can eat for good health. As for my coworker, It was a pain in the neck working with some of them but the hardest part of the job was coming in and finding the place in a complete mess. I did not get a lot of hours to work even though I was constantly asking but they made me do a lot. As for the most enjoyable part, I was just happy to have a job.

ok place to work
Customer Service/Checkout Supervisor (Former Employee), cranston, RIMay 28, 2015
It's a union job that's good if you're looking for part-time work. You work on weekends and some holidays and you're on your feet. The longer you're there the better hours you get. It's all about seniority.

bad job

Fired people that were full time and hired part time people
Assisted customers waiting to check out, scanned items, requested price checks when needed, honored appropriate coupons and gift cards, collected payments and gave accurate change, bagging the items into paper, plastic, and or reusable bags. Always being polite and using professional manners. Replaced un-purchased items back on the shelves.

typical first job
Cashier/ Customer Service Clerk (Current Employee), wareham MAMarch 12, 2015
Pros: wonderful coworkers
Cons: short breaks, stressful
This is a great job is you are still in high school and need a difficult schedule to follow. There is room for job advancements but if you aren't good friends with the higher ups then there is a good chance you won't be recognized. This job can be very stressful because some of the management will expect more work out of you in a shorter amount of time. Other than that, I met a lot of wonderful people here.

Terrible
Seafood Manager (Former Employee), Leominster, MAMarch 9, 2015
Pros: health benefits, 401k, indoor atmosphere
Cons: not allowed lunch breaks some days
Terrible company. No stability. Not profitable.
Work days were always different. Shifts were always changed last minute. Departments extremely understaffed. No work life balance. District management constantly contradicting each other making running a department hard since you are being told to do something different every week by multiple different managers. Bad business plan with too much product lost and very high prices compared to competitors.

Typical Day
Cashier (Current Employee), Derry, NHFebruary 10, 2015
My typical day at Shaws is handling currency, taking care of sales transactions, bagging and always being pleasant to the people that come through my line.

The best part of my job interacting with customers.

Friendly work environment could use more disciplined employees
Cashier, Bagger, HBC (Current Employee), Colchester, VTJanuary 11, 2015
Pros: customers, friendly environment, clean
Cons: short breaks, lack of discipline, favoritism among the younger employess
There are some issues with management and employees, such as treatment of customers and time management. Also, ordering supplies. A lot like high school as far as the front end is concerned, if Management did a better job controlling the cliches and the overall lack of customer relationship from some of their younger employees it would be a great place to work. I enjoy my job and love the customer relations I'm able to make but I feel my enthusiasm isn't matched by many of the younger employees and they get caught up in the gossip and friendships rather than the job at hand.

A typical high school job.
Cashier (Former Employee), Braintree, MANovember 11, 2014
Pros: discount on product.
Cons: poor pay, very little hours.
A decent company but with so many employees, it was hard (re: near impossible) to achieve full time work status. They rarely promoted unless you were close to management which was more or less unfair. It was a good step into the working world but miles away from where I am now and plan to be in the future.
