Very few hours given, very isolated
Meat Assistant Manager (Current Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK13 July 2017
not many hours and very isolated being. could go a whole 4 hour shift without seeing or talking to anyone. Was able to work at my own speed but found when working with others it slowed me down.

Bad Leadership
Bakery Clerk (Former Employee) –  Merritt, BC11 July 2017
Supervisor had no idea what she's doing most of the time...she has taken on too much for her to handle. Involves herself in all the staff drama...she needs to become just an employee in my opinion.

Price checks and number coded produce
Cashier (Former Employee) –  Dryden, ON26 June 2017
Normally it was pretty easy going, I scanned customers items. If there was a price check needed which there was lots of times I'd call the price check employee. Made sure the 2 for 10 items went in properly. The difficult thing was to actually remember all the produce items by number,like 4056 was apples. And there was 3 different codes for apples, there was gala apples and red apples etc.I learned if the item could not be scanned we would have to type the bar code number in one by one or find a similar priced item.
Pros
10% of things in the store
Cons
Lots of things were not priced correctly

Was a good job when I was in highschool. Kept me busy. Part time of course. Pay wasn't the best and raises not good either. But work was reasonable. Good people, good environment.

Worked as a cashier. Rang customers orders through the tills. Sometimes did price changes in other departments. Sometimes helped customers find items they were having trouble finding on their own.

Soul sucking, thankless work
Specialist (Former Employee) –  Aldergrove, BC18 April 2017
Weak leadership skills, drunk managers driving to and from work and while on duty, in store theft, poor maintenence, hour cuts and unwillingness to help its employees proves loblaws leaves much to be desired in a work place. Oh also that and not giving employees their dues when coming up with ideas used nationwide. Thankless soul sucking company.
Pros
The customers were nice
Cons
Poor work place environment
