Comfortable Work Atmosphere
Deli Assistant Supervisor (Former Employee), Smithers, BCNovember 6, 2014
Pros: try new products
Cons: often short-staffed, having a heavy workload
Kept relatively busy. I learned quite a bit on how to run the deli as I was the person in charge when the supervisor was away. I worked both opening and closing shifts and there was a difference in both. Day- made hmr and deli items for sale, put out stock, did paperwork, and helped customers when needed; so I kept busy. Night- did clean up (dishes, – more... garbage, cleaned slicer/service case), and filled up or faced items that looked empty; wasn't as busy-more routine than day. I also mainly did the training for new employees and helped decide on who to hire. I enjoyed the people i worked with, the atmosphere was very friendly. The only issue I had was being short-staffed and having to do catch up on a lot of work that would need to be done. – less

Baker (Former Employee), Edson, ABSeptember 17, 2014
Volunteering at the public library was an interesting experience to say the least. A group of teens and I set out to the library every morning during the summer and got ready for the arrival of the children. During the day of planned activities and events, we would read and assist in their learning to read for a couple hours, spread apart, then set – more... upon fun and interactive activities. There wasn't really any management positions, but there was a worker at the public library that helped plan the events and keep the group on the task at hand. My co-workers were young and lacking experience in jobs since we were all in middle school at the time, but we experience what a job could be like and how to handle different responsibilities. The most enjoyable experience during that summer was helping the younger people of the community to learn how to read and develop their learning capabilities. – less

Enjoyable and valuable experience at Extra Foods
sale associate person (Former Employee), West Vancouver, BCJuly 9, 2014
At first, I had to make sure everything from the day/shift before has been correctly done; then I had to do the tasks which were to be done that day like filling up candy shelves; and of course all of these tasks were to be done while doing my primary duty which was to scan each item at the checkouts. Also there used to be a "deal of the week" which – more... we had to promote to each single customer. Having mentioned all the above, I also was responsible of customer service check out which had a totally different range of responsibilities.
The most enjoyable part of my job was to communicate with both customers and my co-workers through which I developed many skills including team working. After 4 years experience of working at Extra Foods I learned how to set my goals and priorities in life aside from many other skills like multitasking and working under pressure. My managers and supervisors helped me to learn how to be more organized and responsible for the tasks that were assigned to me. The hardest part of my job was to stand on my feet for full shifts, at first; however, as I enjoyed communicating with customers and walking around the store to help them, I was able to overcome this challenge. – less

I Really Enjoyed Working With my Co-workers at the Time and I have learned to work well on my own, Co-workers have told me that I am a hard worker and I was in a work/studies program and she had hired me after one week of work. I believe I have worked there on that start date and end date.

Poor management,
Grocery Stocker (Former Employee), Dryden, ONJune 12, 2014
Pros: busy
Cons: overworked
Was a very poorly managed store. Lots of losses and high turnover of employees. Certain people could do whatever they pleased while others were forced to do all the work. The company doesn't seem so bad itself, just that specific one is not managed well.

Cash Office Clerk (Former Employee), Drumheller, ABMay 15, 2014
I loved working there. The co workers were amazing and everybody got along. There wasn't exactly one task everyone was assigned to and we all helped each other out when needed. The hardest part was dealing with cranky customers but you get that wherever you work. The management there was really good and listened to you if you had a problem with anything. – more... As long as you did your work you were fine. – less

A great first job. Always something to do.
Food service worker/ produce department (Former Employee), abbotsfordMarch 28, 2014
A typical day at work was to sign in, sort through all the fruit and vegetables, and make sure everything was stocked very nicely.
Then I would check to see what was in stock so I could fill the tables.
Then I would water all the produce that need to be watered.

I learned about different types of fruits and vegetables. I learned how to work on my own.

The – more... management was very nice.

My co-workers were very friendly even though I only worked with a few different people.

There wasn't really a hard part about this job.

I most enjoyed the environment, working by myself with really no supervision. – less
