Agostino Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
D'Agostino Supermarkets is a family-owned supermarket chain in the New York City area. The store was founded in 1932 by brothers Pasquale and Nicola D'Agostino, in the pioneering phase of the supermarket industry. At D'Agostino's peak in the 1990s, the chain operated at 26 locations in New York City and adjacent Westchester County, with annual sales exceeding $200 million. By 2016 under financial pressure, D'Agostino's consolidated to nine stores (now ten), all in Manhattan, and was considering selling to a rival grocer.
A former clerk wrote, "Job was horrible, co-workers there were awful not to mention the pay was horrible. The supervisors enforced everything up to the hairstyle policy. For a job doing deliveries and putting food on shelves."

Delivery Person (Former Employee) says"The work was fun and enjoyable until I realized how authoritarian the managers were. I as well as other workers were punished for taking sick days, either by being given fewer hours the next week, or having their position changed."
Cashier (Former Employee) says"I learned cashier skills from working at this supermarket. I learned that patience is key when working in a fast pace environment. I also enhanced my customer service skills working at this supermarket. I actually enjoyed working at D'agostino but my only issue was my co-workers and one of the managers. At the time i was with child working there and one of the supervisors would question me based on my pregnancy in a rude manor and would discuss my situation to other workers. At work I felt like i did not fit in. I was there for one reason only and that was to do my job. Working in an uncomfortable establishment is something that no worker should experience. But i did enjoy the overall store and the customers as well they kept me in a cheerful mood during my experience at this establishment. Cons: Work environment"
