Good people, decent management.
Overall, the environment working at Farm Boy can be described as fluctuating. Some days, things are great - people are friendly, accommodating and generally helpful, and others times the management really gets annoying. They expect a LOT from even their lowest-level employees, while at the same time not giving anything back to them. Often times, higher management tells their stores to hire for higher-level jobs externally instead of internally. It isn't all bad, however. The employees are very nice and friendly, and for the most part the job isn't too difficult or stressful. The hardest part of the job is having to deal with the public, as with any retail-related job. If you aren't a people person, this is the wrong place to look for work, as they treat customers absolutely above everything else (i.e. lots of employee-customer relations). The repetitiveness of the job can get a little annoying, after a long shift, but the best part of the job is the people you work with. Farm Boy is very good about hiring the right people for the job, so if you do get hired, you'll generally like the people around you.
