System Analyst (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 17 March 2014
At Loblaws, I have learned to effectively work with multiple teams across different platforms. Had good exposure with the customers understanding their issues, explaining to them the root cause of the issue in simple business terms which they can understand easily. Last not least I have learned to attend the issues with a smile under the pressurized situations. The hardest part of the job is to have all the technical teams and the business teams in the same pace. The most enjoyable part of the job is to have interaction with lots of enthusiastic people who works with a smile for the President's choice Financial. Also the job at Loblaws helped me to learn well the Credit Card management.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Wasaga Beach, ON – 27 January 2017
I now work for The Real Canadian Superstore in Wasaga Beach. I think I was very lucky to get this job. There is a great attitude in this store. Everyone I have met thus far are very friendly and helpful. I like the benefits i will get once I am past my probationary period. It's hard to tell who management are in our store, they don't make a big deal of it, and work just as hard as the rest of us. I love the contact with our customers, and have a great time helping them both spend, and save money. I have nothing but positive things to say about them, and hope that one of you will be as lucky as I am. The hardest part, well I haven't found a hard part yet.
Assistant store manager (Former Employee) – Bayview Village, ON – 27 November 2016
I was working night crew and always expecting more with less paid, benefits are garbage for part time.managers are ok, supervisors and high rank bosses not even good morning. Human resource should be doing something about LOBLAWS. I I had the power will put then out of Bussines. I finally find the place to put a review and hopping people listen and stop working for them, make them rich,WHY? They don't care about you missing New Years with your kids, only about you working like mad man. Hope people can hear me out Loblaws is not what they think it is.it is not the only job you are goin to find in your life. Today I am working at a better place far from junior and his clan
Employees are good people but scare of losing job
Bad company to work, won't recommend even if is the only one out there
Assistant Grocery Department Manager (Former Employee) – St. Paul, AB – 13 November 2016
The work was much more physically strenuous than my current job, but by the same token duties were much clearer and, indeed, the accomplishment of duties was also much more clearly appreciated. Advancement was never guaranteed, but chances were that you would only lose your job if you were doing an explicitly poor job with relation to expectations. Expectations were different depending on the age and health of specific staffers as far as job security goes, but not very different when it came to the consideration of advancement. Those who did the most and understood the most were the ones who were promoted.
Wages went up at set intervals as part of the union structure, but separate from that wages also went up with respect to promotions. Good work could equate to a sooner raise in a very literal sense, granting some limitations unfortunately in place due to union negotiations. Benefits included health coverage as well as a 10% employee discount after six months on the job.
Excellent management, clear sense of expectations and purpose.
Pharmacy Assistant Student (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 2 March 2017
Working in this place has been like my training ground. I learned a lot of things. Staffs here are very approachable, never hesitated to teach you new additional stuffs. They are very patient to me. I also observed that they really can handle customers under pressure very well. Well, I may have a hard time understanding how the customer's third party benefits work, but I know just more practices, then everything will surely be clear to me. I really enjoy packaging, labelling, doing the dispensing and blister packing.
Positive work environment. Good salary and benefits
Registered Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) – Greater Toronto Area, ON – 2 March 2017
Very busy. Working with a diverse population which is great. The health benefits are excellent. I learned a lot they always provide continuing education. The hardest part is not having enough staff . The enjoyable part is having a great relationship with colleagues.
Department Manager (Former Employee) – Ontario – 10 November 2016
Once in management your salary is not increased for at least one year with no benefits. So I was making slightly more than a cashier but managing a department with increased workload and responsibility. Made to feel unappreciated as I was told I could be replaced at any time and I should appreciate the opportunity afforded me .Management is unapproachable and distant with no negotiations. Expected to work extra hours with no extra pay.
Merchant (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 16 November 2016
Overall the Loblaw's office is great place to work. They treat their employees well and offer advancement opportunities. Benefits are great which include 100% coverage on medication at Loblaw pharmacies. 50% off glasses on top of what is provided on benefits. Culture at the top is still an "old boys club' mentality.
benefits, stock options
long hours expected, still an old boys club at the top
Material Handler (Current Employee) – Regina, SK – 20 November 2016
lifting goods and organizing good and operates forklift and other machines is a typical day at work, lifting heavy goods is quiet tiring but time passes so quickly that you couldn't notice that the working hours was ended because of good relationship with co-worker and because of teamwork that makes the job enjoyable. The benefits is good and the management has considerations.
FT Produce Clerk (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 22 March 2017
Poor Management. Pay compensation is extremely low for the job functions in some departments. Poor safety culture People with strong skills not recognized and given the opportunities for advancement in a reasonable time frame.
Reaching quota or percentage within a supportive management
Order Assembler (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 1 December 2016
Preparing stocks from different supermarkets and hit the target quota for your performance. Management is very supportive for every new colleague. My co-workers are supportive as well. The hardest part of the job is that I need to hit the target quota/volume percentage every day.
Bakery Assistant (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 4 November 2016
Early morning riser. Prep all variety of breads buns pies all the goodies. Place in warmers to raise the doe and pop in the ovens for the sweet smell of various berries that are AHH so good.

Inventory Coordinator (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 6 January 2017
The best place I have ever worked. Fun, room for growth, amazing people and staff. The DC closed in 2012 or else I would still be there. Salary is not everything and would have been happy to stay there forever if I could.
Fast pace environment, friendly staff and Customers.
Cashier, Front End Supervisor, Trainer (Former Employee) – Isabella, MB – 12 September 2016
Loblaw Great Foods Isabella location is a face pace environment, took on many different positions, co-workers are the best people I have worked with. I had the best managers and mentors. Loblaw over all has been the greatest job I have ever had so far.
Amazing opportunities to move up in company, it's union, benifits
You don't get extra or raise when moving up in company and wage increase goes based on hours worked.
Front End Manager (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 15 November 2016
Very proactive company that has dealt with issues head on and invested in the future. A great place to work that promotes individual growth and supports employees of all ages. The hardest and most enjoyable part of retail is the customers. The most rewarding part of the job is watching employees develop and prosper.
Night crew (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 19 January 2017
Everybody in Loblaws are good and cooperating and the job is good at everything but salary they pay 11.40 hourly so it's not enough and especially it's part time job and I am looking for full time job with higher salary.
