Cashier, Price (Current Employee) – Prince George, BC – 22 September 2017
You focus on your department, and deal with a lot of customer service. The most difficult part of the job is the angry customers. Creating new relationships everyday and seeing someone smile is the most enjoyable aspect of the job.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 20 September 2017
Working here was very difficult. I was very young, people did not take me seriously at times and my hard work was not appreciated. The staff were not accommodating to previous commitments and I was never allowed to take any time off. I was not given an employee call list so I was never able to have anybody cover my shifts. One time I had salmonella poisoning and I was written up because I wasn't able to make it into work.

Great Place to Work. Loblaw has great culture and work values. I am proud of Loblaw being a 100% Canadian company. Loblaw has great opportunity for growth and employees are supported in their education
Productive,educational and a hard working workplace
Butcher & Grocery Shopper (Former Employee) – London, ON – 18 September 2017
I thoroughly enjoyed working at Loblaws as a butcher. Staff was cooperating and patient, they also took the time to teach more than I should've known since I wanted to approve as a butcher. I would come into work and start my night shift routine, how to clean the workplace and properly take care of the heavy machinery. Management was very respectful and accommodating to my needs and my school schedule. I believe the most difficult part of the job was maintaining the meat counter during the night rush hour on my own, i was often counting inventory in the freezer but also had to keep an eye on customers and the counter a distance away.
Senior Analyst, Consumer Insights & Loyalty (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 17 September 2017
A good company overall. Working on Shoppers Drug Mart is quite segregated from the rest of Loblaws. There is a major opportunity to improve the office space and culture at Shoppers Drug Mart.
Working in analytics is great, as there is a wealth of very rich data. However, the structure is very top heavy with lots of people in management and not many analysts, which makes it difficult to be agile and make decisions quickly.
lovely associates to work with and lots of fun during summer
Pharmacy Assistant (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 17 September 2017
I have working in Loblaws for the past 13 years and I really like working with the associates who are very kind and compassionate and enjoyable to be around. We spend a lot of time serving customers and know them by name. Management is easy to approach in times of need.
Barbecue every summer and cheap tickets to water parks and wonderland
Night Crew Chief (Current Employee) – ottawa ON – 17 September 2017
working with fast paced individuals maintaining the stands of the retail chaining business and success for the future continuous nightly work maintaining the retail area of the sales floor and displays scheduling the hours of work to the shipments of products for retail sales
Managment is very flexible with hours however the union fees seriously hurt the pay
Grocery Clerk (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 12 September 2017
mostly boring, easy, and monotonous work. Management is pretty good with flexibility but will overwork you without hesitation. Co-workers are usually a complete pain in the butt as they do next to nothing(with a few exceptions).
cheap/free food, 10% discount after 6 months, flexible hours
horrible management, distribution of work depended on how much you could kiss the Store Manager's rear, pay was down to 9.60 an hour from 11.40 after union fees
Hot Meal Replacement Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Ontario – 11 September 2017
Loblaws is a company that continuously seeks to improve the experience for customers. It offers great benefits for both full-time and part-time employees. A typical day is always busy and you must rely on colleagues to ensure everything runs smoothly and the customers' experience is great.
