Fast-paced work place with dedicated management
Counter Sales Floral Department Clerk (Former Employee) – Miller Place, NY – February 2, 2016
Many of the skills I learned at Stop and Shop helped make me into a more well-rounded, hard working employee. A typical day involved me setting up my department (getting the register till, unlocking drawers, putting down mats), and balancing both customer interactions with my department duties. It was a job I could easily do alone, but as the store grew busier throughout the day, I felt as if a second hand would have helped me accomplish more tasks.
My co-workers mostly had to be trained, which made it difficult since I would have to stop what I was doing to show them how to do their work, but once they picked it up, most of the hours went smoothly.
The hardest part of the job was the hours on my feet and the customers. That's no fault of Stop and Shop's, however: they can't help what people shop at their stores.
The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to work in a place where I knew the management cared and would listen when needed. Personal reasons demanded that I leave my job at Stop and Shop, and I regret having to leave like I did.
a shortage of help in my department made it difficult, if not impossible sometimes, to take my breaks.
