A great place to get into the work life
Reciver/Grocery Clerk (Current Employee) –  Windsor, ON17 May 2017
This is a good company that will start you slow and train you to work on your own and as a team, the union is great and breaks are fair and common, Management is great and very nice, they are willing to work around school hours for part timers, the only thing that is not so great is its minimum and doesn't go up very fast.
Pros
Days feel quick, Good union breaks, works with school hours, management is amazing and fun
Cons
Low pay, Not many benefits

Horrible Place
Order Assembler (Former Employee) –  Mount Pearl, NL16 May 2017
Loblaws has been unionized for a long time which would make you think it's a good place but there is no getting along between the employees and the management. The management constantly verbally abuses employees and threatens jobs.

Challenging work environment, high expectations for department managers
Natural Value Dept. Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON15 May 2017

General labor
Store clerk (Former Employee) –  Montreal12 May 2017
This is a general labor job which I did more than 10 years ago and did at a younger age where all the details are now trivial and I still have no complaints about the company. Good company and great staff!

typical selector duties
Outbound Selector (Current Employee) –  Surrey, BC12 May 2017
repetitive work, mandatory overtime hours, cold environment, physically demanding and fast paced workers. They expect you to pick up products at a 100% pick rate and the timing for certain orders is unrealistic especially if one is more likely to be injury prone. Proper techniques must be used otherwise you won't be there for long.
Cons
long hours

Confusing system yet caring staff
Deli Clerk (Former Employee) –  Camrose, AB10 May 2017
The hardest part about working near the end of the day has to be the clean up duty. Especially the cleaning of the larger appliances (ovens, meat slicers, etc.). I found it most enjoyable just prepping ingredients and the various food trays to be displayed. Management was friendly and encouraging. However, I personally found my work schedule confusing and at times, unfair. I felt they should be giving their less experienced workers more time to learn and become better employees. Having to only work one day of the week is a demeaning feeling. Overall, I feel it was a positive work environment, but the way they schedule their younger employees needs work.
Pros
Care and understanding of management
Cons
Not enough emphasis on newer, part-time workers

A typical day would begin with running sales on the previous day. You then do your best to balance all of your daily and weekly tasks while attending meetings that are planned as well as impromptu.
Pros
dynamic environment that yields a ton of learning
Cons
long hours and underpaid for all of the work that is expected of you
