Nice place to work.
Associate Merchant (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON and Toronto, ON26 May 2017
Had to be multi tasking in listing / DE-listing products, dealing with vendors and suppliers for placing orders, pricing, promotion with various price incentive and handling pricing discrepancy, items not in system etc.

In a hectic day, you learned how to prioritize your tasks.

The most enjoyable part of the job was the accomplishment of getting the jobs finished on time and the customers were happy.
Pros
Nice cafeteria, + bonus annually
Cons
Demanding tasks.

A colleague discount card is given after 6 months of employment

Tight timelines
Assembler (Former Employee) –  Regina, SK24 May 2017
Some areas require a lot of strength and endurance as you could be lifting 5-15 boxes weighing upwards of 40-50 lbs repeatedly throughout the day, making it troublesome to smaller people maintain the tight timeline they want of you during the beginning of your employment

Nice lunch room, but low pay
Night Replenishment Clerk (Former Employee) –  Pitt Meadows, BC24 May 2017
I hate to say it but don't work here. Low pay, bad management, never get the hours you need to make an "ok" paycheck. Min wage to start, graveyard shifts usually get extra but not with this company. It's like highschool all over again, too much drama. Don't work for this company. If I could I'd give 0 stars.
Pros
free lunch once in a while
Cons
low pay, not being appreciated for doing a great job, barely getting the hours you need. Too many cons to list. smh.

part time position was good
Cashier (Former Employee) –  Ajax, ON23 May 2017
Most of the staff were great they were very accommodating to new staff. The customer were the ones who made the day. Really enjoyed working there. It would be nice to have a biweekly schedule so I can plan my family activities in advance. Do get busy at times but all worth when your customers are satisfied and rewards you with a smile.
Pros
staff members appreciation
Cons
busy and long standing

Fun, engaging workplace
Cook (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON22 May 2017
A typical day at work is simple, tasks involving cooking for clients for a birthday party or product demo. I learned different recipes, cooking skills and sales skills from this job. Management was flexible with hours and understanding with salary. Culture was open and free of judgement, very friendly. Hardest part of the job was competing with coworkers who are more experienced for hours but the most enjoyable part is the pleasure of helping clients learn to cook through product demo
Pros
Free lunches, Friendly coworkers
Cons
Competition for hours

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

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.
