Pros: Fast paced work environment with nice co-workers
Cons: drone-like work that was impossible to enjoy
Working with Loblaw at Superstore was quite eventful, since there was always another customer waiting, but the work was so incredibly repetitive that there was almost never a moment when I was enjoying myself. Loblaw is a great employer to always have something to do, but it is all drone work.
I learned how to effectively handle money and cash registers, but I also was given a good idea of where each item was inside the store.
Management functioned, but was not amazing. The supervisors and store managers were constantly in bad moods, and though they were almost always pleasant toward their employees, they were not always handling customers in the best way.
My co-workers were almost all great people. Everybody was happy, sometimes making pleasant conversation, but nobody seemed to particularly enjoy their time while at work.
The hardest part of the job for me was the repetition. I almost never had the chance to work away from my till.
I most enjoyed being away from the till. When I was sent outside to bring carts in, or sent to price check, I enjoyed myself. These circumstances however, were very scarce.
