I am a regular shopper at ShopRite of Perth Amboy, NJ and I have witnessed (on many occasions) the Manager: AJ Jafar talking very nasty to the employees. This is not only very unprofessional, but also degrading and disrespectful to the employees. In addition, this bullying behavior is intimidating and creates a hostile work environment. Someone needs to address this situation and must reprimand him for his unruly behavior. It is bad for business and this is no way of expressing "leadership" skills....

We opened the case and the police told us that the person who collected the money cant be traced cause she has no account etc, but our...

I visited ShopRite today, the service was too slow I have wait more than 15 minutes on the que before been helped and on top of that the cashier that helped me was not friendly, she didn't even bother to greet me, she just took things on my hand and ring them up on the till. That was the worst experience I experienced in ShopRite, I think shoprite has to provide their staff with customer service training, cause that particular cashier behavior its going to case customers away.her name is Liziwe. She is very rude....

went to Shoprite in tsakane on the 29-04-13.I purchased goods for an amount of R526.08.I paid using my debit card the first time the cashier said the transaction didn't go through as the system was offline. She took the card and did the transaction again. A few days later when I checked my statement I found that I was debited twice on that day. I went to Shop rite on the 05-05-13 and informed them of the problem. They told me that they cannot see it on their system so they need to escalate it to the bank and I will receive my money within 3 days.I waited for the whole week and nothing came...

Out shopping on this beautiful Easter Sunday...my day was good until going to Shop Rite.

I walked past the Entennman's display and the sale sign caught my attention. It was located at the top of the display on every side of the display. On the display are donuts, cakes, and danishes. It says Entennman's cakes on sale. A few feet away are three tables with donuts and cakes, with the same sale sign. I pick up a lemon danish, and get to the register and it is $6.69. The danish is located right next to the donuts right under the sale sign. The cashier says go get the sign. I...

I visited Shoprite, Pimville Square, in Soweto today at 6:45pm (like any other day) with the intention of buying some queens cakes and juice for my daughter's lunch box. Normally, when I'm buying 1 or 2 items I pay by the Kiosk. To my surprise today I was told otherwise by the cashier, whom just immediately served a gentleman before me with 1 item. She said I was not allowed to pay for groceries outside of the Kiosk and therefore needed to pay at the trolley tills. However, this did not make sense as I am used to paying at the Kiosk (I did it 2 days back) and the gentleman before myself...

I was first interviewed on 3/10/11. I was told I was hired but unsure of starting date. Had to do another application online. Interviewed again. I was hired. No start date. I then received a certified letter stating they could not reach me, good luck. I called and left messages. I had to waste 2 days off my regular employment to not get hired. I understand they can get away with this....

I called the woman from Human Resources about 2 weeks after she had called me back and had said twice that she believed me and that I didn't have to show her my two receipts and that she would be willing to meet me at this Shoprite when I show the managers my October receipt which proves that I did buy a good homestyle garlic turkey breast there that cost 6.59 for half of a pound not 3.21.She had said in the first that she would speak with them and get back to me and that usually takes a day or two.

Well, I told her that I would call her if I could go that Thursday of that week...

On Friday evening 02102009 at 18.11 I went into Shoprite Malvern as I do religiously and was purchasing a box of tampons (yes tampons) as well as a 2 litre coca cola. I swiped my Credit Card at the till 3 times with 3 different cards before having the manageress take my items away and tell me to please leave!!! i was so embarrassed I just walked out not thinking to get a name.

It would have been more civil to ask me to go to another till as they were accepting cards but to tell me I cant buy at the store is something I have never experienced before. I am HUMILIATED and vow to never...

On sunday the 16 of August i went to buy a tooth brush for R16.75, so by seeing that it was that price i took it to the teller to pay.The cashier scanned and told me it was R31.99 therefore i asked to see a Manager as the price is not what i saw.Norman Bergman was busy with his cell phone playing games and didn't even look at my face as a client. He told me i was stupid as i didn't read what was written on the description.I felt embarassed in front of other people in the shop that i ended paying that R31.99.So i advise other customers to boycott Shoprite checkers in Yeoville. Please don't...

I bought a Classic 32" TV from ShopRite in November (Black Friday Sale). They were out of model advertised Haier, they were substituting Classic. The picture went on the tv, tried to get it fixed, the company is no longer in business so they could not get parts. DO NOT BUY TV'S FROM SHOPRITE when they have their sales. I have to buy another tv now after the Classic only lasted a year....

Today my friend went to the pizza restuarant next to the rt9 Shoprite. After he went into the store for something to drink. After entering the store he was aproached by a worker ( Benny ) and was told to " leave because I cant deal with your shit today." My friend without a fight left not knowing what he was talking about. Then we met up and he told me the story. Later we went back because I wanted candy and he wanted a iced tea. We walked around not being loud or horseplaying then we got what we wanted and got on line, the worker saw my friend and snatched the iced tea from him and told him to...

Recently while stopping in at ShopRite in Old Bridge NJ one evening after work I was verbally attacked in front of my wife and children by members of the night crew. The workers were standing in back by a meat case talking loudly and laughing, as I passed by I seen one of the workers eyeing my wife and baby daughter. This didn't bother me much as to I am used to it, but after we passed and was in an aisle I overheard one of them say loudly if they seen the "mongoloid" and they all broke out laughing. I heard the word repeted several times accompanied by much laughing and them accusing each...

I went to buy some food for my apartment. This Shoprite accepts the local university fincinal aid dollars as payment. When I went to pay I stood there for 15mins while they customer service manager, Catherine, tried to run it through. Then after 15mins. she came back over and said that it was not working and that I could not use that. It was the only form of payment I had and I just spent over 1 hour shopping and almost as long waiting to get checked out. The whole time she was talking to me she was rude and DID NOT have the type of customer service you would expect from a "Customer Service manager"....

I went to Shop Rite in Old Bridge on Rt 9 North by the Ferry Roud. I wanted to get some cheese and ham for my family breakfast. I was very surprised when instead of thank you I got harassed by one of the workers for making they work hard for my order! Worker talked about me with her co-workers in front of my face with her back turned to me. I got my order with an attitude that has been almost throwing into my face. In addition I got comments about my hair and my clothes. After feeling awful I spoke to the manager and I got the same attitude! WOW! So when I got home soaking in up and opened my shopping...

Shoprite - New Jersey, Jersey City - The whole ordeal turned out to be a nightmare instead

I just started going to the Metro Plaza ShopRite at Jersey City(07302) and I have to say the experience has been horrible.

Each time I use coupons the cashiers become so rude and have also had the manager showing faces or throwing remarks about it. Instead of politely mentioning if they won't accept a certain coupon they pass snide and sarcastic remarks as if it's a crime to have coupons!

This kind of passing remarks and rude attitude is a complete customer harassment and discrimination, something that I haven't seen anywhere else.

I was buying some grocery's at the Shoprite of Northvale. My total for my grocery's was $28.18. I gave the cashier $40 but the cashier said I only gave him $30. Shoprite cashiers want a lot of money so be careful of what they do!...
