Deli/Meat Clerk/ various temp positions (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 22 June 2017
Very fast paced No room for error Management ok Hardest part keeping up in mornings and during busy times Some great coworkers. Overall not bad place but long intervals between raises takes a long time for very small amount. Can take over a yr or more.
Great people, efficient lots to learn if given the chance
Raises, seniority (length of time working there)trumps qualifications
Associate (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 22 June 2017
Lots of fun working in a warehouse, especially morning or night crew when store is closed. Fast paced and never boring. You don't have to worry about what to wear, makeup or pretty hair,just be presentable.

I was a cashier assistant on a seasonal assignment. I really enjoyed working in the busy atmosphere. I was treated well. It as great place to work. I got along with all of my co-workers. I was trained on my job and I learned quickly how to support customers and other staff members.
Service employee + stocker (Former Employee) – Pointe-Claire, QC – 12 June 2017
Nothing special here, just work and when you hit brackets of hours complete you get raises. The ceiling for pay is rather high as a basic employee if you're there long enough so that more often than not enticed people to stay while I worked there.
A place to learn discipline and working on a schedule
Morning Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 7 June 2017
A typical day at work consisted of making the store presentable to customers when the entered. This meant we had a limited time to complete our task. From this job I learned diligence and discipline and how to present a store to customers. The most difficult part of the job was working under a deadline constantly and dealing with heavy products.
Forklift Operator, Cashier, Tire centre (Former Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 5 June 2017
Great pay and benefits but the work environment is terrible. Management is always on your case about up selling and flow of scanned items on your till and many more. A lot of favouritism, I mean it is everywhere. As well as management does not back up their own employees and leave them paying for what happened to the customer even if its the customers fault. Will never work for them again. It is very stressful working there too, they are not considerate for their employees with health issues.
Food Assistant (Current Employee) – Okotoks, AB – 5 June 2017
Though the work can be tiring and brain-numbing, my coworkers and even management are like one big family. They are always open to hear your concerns or difficulties and willing to accomodate you.
As a student, they have treated me with great respect to my education and mental health. They provide an awesome student program that allows you to work year round without having to reapply in the summer.
family atmosphere, student plan
not much opportunity for advancement, not many vacation hours
