Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – 19 August 2017
I worked with countless employees and diligently worked through tasks. I learned that gossip makes a work environment toxic and unpleasant, and those who supervise tend to exaggerate the jobs that they do in order to shift work onto your shoulders. (This does not apply to all supervisors) The environment is fun and lighthearted, and the most enjoyable part of the job is the people you meet and interact with on a daily or weekly basis.

I work for the new westminster store. It's a nice part time job. The head office management is great will often buy Tim Horton's for the staff. The manager and assistant manager and all other staff are great. The pay is decent for part time work. No stress.
Stock Clerk (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 8 August 2017
Working stock at Bulk Barn is pretty much your standard, mundane stock shift. The company is Franchised so I imagine each store offers a variable experience. I am lucky enough to work at a busier store which means more coworkers and customers to help keep the day rolling by. Undersweeping the bins will kill your back.
Supervisor, Full Time (Current Employee) – Barrie, ON – 6 August 2017
Job entitles too much work for random hours, even as full time, for too little pay. Cooperation is advised but never truly shown. All in all its a job for teenagers or those not looking for anything serious.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Sarnia, ON – 1 August 2017
This was one of my favorite places to work. But sadly all the owners have been taken over by corporate. Our owner was the best boss ive ever had. I'm sure bulk barn is still decent to work for, but won't ever be the same.
a good job if you're not looking for anything too serious
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Bracebridge, ON – 24 July 2017
The management where I worked was horrible. There was a lot of gossip and drama among the employees and the boss/management. Horrible hours given, given maximum 10 hours a week. Not accommodating of illnesses/time off requests (no matter how far in advance).
Commis-caissier (Former Employee) – Drummondville, QC – 18 July 2017
L'ambiance de travaille au Bulk Barn de drummondville est très agréable. Tout le monde s'entend bien, l'entraide est toujours présente, les nouvelles idées sont toujours la bienvenu. Horaire très flexible pour les étudiants très occupé!
Cashier (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 8 July 2017
A typical day at work is sweeping beneath every bin of product and making sure the store looks presentable for all customers. Making sure that all customers find everything they need and leave the store with a smile.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 7 July 2017
Working here was very fun at first. My coworkers were extremely friendly and we all got along very well. The management, at first, was very nice and were accommodating. This store went through many staff changes, either because of the staff personnel themselves or management just being too strict.
Eventually, the management started becoming rude and overbearing. They would pick at every little thing we did - not stocking properly, not doing enough at the cash register, etc.
These were not true. The staff were all hardworking and were treated less than they should have been. It was disappointing as I truly enjoyed working at Bulk Barn. However, I wish the management were better people.
