Great co-workers and unique work environment at Loblaws MLG
Meat Clerk (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 7 August 2016
The Loblaws I worked at previously is known as the company's "flagship store"; so as you'd imagine a typical day was usually pretty interesting to say the least. With a grocery store of 30+ aisles, and over a hundred employees you're constantly meeting new people, both customers and co-workers, and having new interactions all the time.
One great example of this was a senior German couple - the husband spoke no English, and the wife only a few words. I stood with the couple for around 5 minutes trying to understand what they needed, and then the wife goes "is there anyone who speaks German"; so I go over the PA of the store and call for an associate fluent in German. The associate arrives, speaks with the couple briefly, and then informs me that all they needed was for me to help them out of the store to the front entrance. I gladly accompany the couple to the exit, say goodbye and carry on with my daily duties.
That is just one of many unique customer interactions to be had at the Loblaws "flagship store"
great deals on groceries, free food fresh made in-store, great co-workers/management
long hours, cold + wet work areas (meat dept)
