Cashier (Former Employee) – Niagara Falls, ON – 17 August 2017
It was a great job which I thoroughly enjoyed and loved my midnight schedule. However, the manager was not someone I recommend working for. She was very verbally abusive to her staff and assistant manager and broke many policies. It was quite corrupt in those terms, but a great job outside her presence.
SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) – Abbotsford, BC – 10 March 2017
a monotonous, yet dynamic culture at work. I learned a lot about handling and supervising store and its tasks. Management was good. It has a nice culture, small petty tasks, easy to handle and meeting new and regular customers. Hard part was our manager was very strict and mistake finder, but overall kept a good discipline at store.
The most enjoyable part was how once you master your tasks, it becomes predictable and work becomes fun.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 8 March 2017
I have learned a lot of things here, using the till properly, handling difficult customers and many more. The management is great for the store that I work in, the manager understands situations and always try her best to help every employee. The least favorite thing in this job for me is asking people for their ID knowing they are over 18.

for nightshift . I was in charge of filling the vault. sanitizing the bibs and changing them. if any ordering was not put into the system I would finish it. I put away the order. I was considered the nightshift supervisor with no raise.
Productive workplace with always having something to do
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Niagara Falls, ON – 26 February 2017
A usual day at work contained a moderate list of things to do which normally would take about 6 hours to complete on a busy day with customers, etc. The hardest part of the job is the location, you could run into sketchy people that constantly steal, or like to start drama, or there are the most friendly locals that come in everyday for their coffee. One of the most enjoyable parts of this job were listening to peoples stories and looking at their smiles, always set the mood in for the rest of the morning.
Flexible schedule, Free Soft Drinks, Free Coffee.
Being around hot food all the time and not being able to eat it.
Cashier (Current Employee) – 1390 Weston Rd, Toronto, ON M6M 4S2 – 20 February 2017
In this work to learn how to adapt to the conditions quickly and customer service and strengthen the communication skills you have and how do they work as a team and the hardest thing that you should do several tasks at the same time
General manager (Former Employee) – Prince George, BC – 15 February 2017
I found that they asked way to much of you in a day to get things done, The day to day is hard to keep up, They want the store to look amazing and for you to cook in the back and make sure everything is away at the end of your day no matter how long you are there for hour wise
Cashier/Customer Service/Cook (Former Employee) – Campbell River, BC – 15 February 2017
I truly enjoyed this job and wish i was still there. lots of customer service and just as many chores, shifts fly by. cook, clean smile and help your customers as well as your co-workers.keep track of lotteries/cigs and cash on a time frame basis. place orders for stock. accept orders, put away(old to front), face store products always. stock everything always.clean as you stock, essential. and most importantly SELL SELL SELL the hot foods, which are always growing and changing. like I said shifts fly by!
Great place to learn lots and get lots of experience.
Store Manager / Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Victoria, BC – 12 February 2017
Lots of good and bad things about this company. I have learned lots of great business, marketing and managing skills here. Do not particularly enjoy how the company treats their employees however. Would still recommend job to others wanting that type of experience.
Great benefits. Lots to learn.
Stressful. Long hours. Extremely short deadlines. No humanity.
Manager (Current Employee) – Canada – 6 February 2017
Poor management with no accountability. Disorganized and reactionary...should be union because it is over wrought with union mentality. Needs "new blood" to make some big changes - maybe new CEO will see that.
if you are okay with being mediocre you can stick around for 20+ years
if you are not okay with being less than the best it is frustrating and spirit killing
