Bagger (Former Employee) – St. Paul, AB – 8 September 2017
a typical day was either busy or normal. i don't really learn much besides how to bag groceries to make customers happy. the management was pour because when i asked to do more day shifts then just doing nights she refused because all the other bag people at the time didn't want do any nights at all and the pay was not good. The hardest part is when a coworkers was able to work at two job places but i wasn't allow to and we both were working at the same two places. The most enjoyable part was when i got a grocery discount for food for my babysitting job.
great place to work, staff friendly, and got cake on birthdays.
Deli Attendant (Former Employee) – Nipawin, SK – 21 September 2017
I started every work day/morning like any other, same routine, but not the same if you get what i am getting at. Always something to do, Most of the time I get to the end of my shift and think "wow i just started and its already done" Before i was employed at Extra Foods i had no experience in the production area. So therefore everything i had learned in the deli department was hands-on. Working under management i can honestly say that they did not make me feel pressured. Everyone was treated equal as employees. The only hardest part i can think of was cleaning the rotisserie. What i enjoyed most was getting the job done and knowing i done it.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Melfort, SK – 22 August 2017
Working there for almost 3 years, I sure enjoyed meeting new people from in and around the community of Melfort. I enjoyed working with all my co-workers, a few of them I gained as friends after I left my job. It's nice being greeted with a smile and asked how life is going even after not working for over a year.

DEPARTMENT SUPERVISOR/ASSISTANT MANAGER (Former Employee) – Sylvan Lake, AB – 4 July 2017
Extra Foods/ no frills was a challenging grocery company but the management supported you and worked with you on your strenths and weaknesses Co workers were easy to work with and everyone worked together to reach a common goal
Cashier (Former Employee) – Dryden, ON – 26 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.
Specialist (Former Employee) – Aldergrove, BC – 18 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.
