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

Cashier (Former Employee) –  Creston, BC23 November 2016
Most of the staff were friendly but no one really cared much. Work was fine with the normal grouchy people sometimes. I liked the coworkers that I knew and I enjoyed working with people. The hardest part of working there was lack of hours.
