CASHER (Current Employee) – North York, ON – 8 August 2013
Work starts of slow depending on the day and really picks up at lunch hour. You are on your feet and do some lifting. Most of my co-workers are nice and hard working. Some leave their job for others to do. Their is a lot of favourtism. Hardest part is dealing with some customers and some management and the good part is you make good friends and meet different people.
Associate Merchant (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON and Toronto, ON – 26 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.
Assembler (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 24 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
Night Replenishment Clerk (Former Employee) – Pitt Meadows, BC – 24 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.
free lunch once in a while
low pay, not being appreciated for doing a great job, barely getting the hours you need. Too many cons to list. smh.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Ajax, ON – 23 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.
Cook (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 22 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
Front End Service Clerk (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 18 May 2017

Reciver/Grocery Clerk (Current Employee) – Windsor, ON – 17 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.
Days feel quick, Good union breaks, works with school hours, management is amazing and fun

Order Assembler (Former Employee) – Mount Pearl, NL – 16 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.
Sushi assistant (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 16 May 2017
Higher requirement about skill and self management, but lowest salary. Trying to find an other place or position. Sushi bar belong to a Taiwan company, nepotism, no commitment between company and employee.
Pharmacist At Superstore south common (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 16 May 2017
they don'y hire qualified staff to help the pharmacist , just getting cheapest labor , not helpful place to succeed but to fail no training only worst staff that can survive as they know would never get a job anywhere else
Challenging work environment, high expectations for department managers
Natural Value Dept. Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 15 May 2017
Experience varies from store to store. A lot of moving parts to manage. Unrealistic work expectations, cutting in to personal time. Politics and in fighting can sometimes be an issue, as well as favoritism.
Staff discount, DB pension plan
Last minute changes lead to working extra hours without pay
