Once done i do overstock, were i check all the innovatory in the cooler and see what needs to go out before the end of the night. At the end of the night clean the services case glass and by cover up the Product in the service case.

HMR (Current Employee), Grand Falls-Windsor, NLDecember 28, 2015
Pros: paid breaks
Cons: poor management
Fast paste environment but you learn how to work quick and multitask. Management isn't the greatest but the co workers are wonderful.
Hardest part of the job is keeping up with everything but its enjoyable because the time flies by.

Interesting and Fun depending on Day
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee), Prince George, BCDecember 28, 2015
There are good days and bad days. It really depends on the Customers and the Staff, However you learn to trudge through it. The Best part of Lob-law is meeting new people every 2-5 Minutes and the conversations depending on the amount of Items in a customers grocery shop.

You get what you are paid for
assembler (Current Employee), Regina, SKDecember 6, 2015
Pros: good pay; schedule is very flexible
Cons: physically demanding
The job is challenging because you are expected to be fast, speedy and accurate. Your performance is monitored every seconds. The management are always telling us to work smart. But sometimes, with heavy lifting and too much bending, my back and knees are starting to feel a lil strain. It's a good company tho. Assembler position is good for young adults.Colleagues are very friendly.

Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABDecember 2, 2015
Pros: learn on site and getting paid as long as you are willing, the job can be taught to you.
Cons: long hours, work/life balance was not there.
fun work place with supportive management. not all about the numbers but how you personally grow and develop. decent amount of red tape and politics, but this is expected of a big company.

Sad place to work
Floral Clerk (Former Employee), Brantford, ONDecember 1, 2015
Pros: Coworkers
Cons: Ridiculous expectations, little to no help or feedback from management. You're on your own here.
Used to be a great place to work, 20 years ago. Now, it's all about the business, no room here for anyone with a family. Evening and weekend work mandatory. Managers don't care about you, only the bottom line. Expect your hours to get cut regularly. And customers to complain there's no one there to serve them. Not enough hours given to get the job done, but get it done anyway. Most long time employees stressed, due to workload expectations. Other than that it's great. Coworkers are awesome, we're all miserable together.

Produce Clerk- In Store Trainer (Former Employee), North York, ONNovember 20, 2015
Was my first job and I had lots of fun there. I know some Loblaws can be a nightmare but its because I was hired when the store first opened and no one had any drama I guess. Overall good experience.

Great Company Culture - the best company I've ever worked for
SAP Analyst (Current Employee), Brampton, ONNovember 12, 2015
Pros: Great discounted Healthy Atrium Food with great variety
Cons: Can't think of any apart from having to work in the basement as part of the IT/SAP team/department
The head-office has a beach volleyball court, private Goodlife Gym and outdoor basketball/street hockey court. After working here, you're guaranteed interviews in literally any retail industry - who doesn't know and respect Loblaws?

its a productive workplace
Cashier (Current Employee), Ottawa, ONNovember 10, 2015
Working at Loblaws for the past 7 years as made me learn a lot of things in my life for example: While speaking with my customers I managed to perfect my spoken English, how to deal with customers properly, how to help my teammates in need, how to multi-task, how to respect the environment at work and through the years I have developed a lot of respect to my co-workers and my managers. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the customers because you never know what type of day that they've had so they could be really happy or really mad so that is why you try to keep a really big smile and make sure that at the end of the order you served the customer properly so that they can leave happy. My teammates, since I've been there are really nice and that is why to me respect is key at work plus the management is pretty good because they treat there employees with good manners and they realize the mistakes they do which happens once in awhile, all you have to do as an employee is go talk to her/him to fix the problem as fast as possible.

A great company to learn.
Customer Serivice/Grocery Clerk (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONNovember 10, 2015
Pros: Strong Union
Cons: Repetitive work
A great company for any young employee that needs to develop good working skills and ethics. Loblaws is a great company with management that cares about all of its employees, the hardest part of the job is empathizing with customers if they were not able to find what they needed. The best part of the job was being able to develop hands on work skills and maintaining good customer service which will benefit everyone in the future.

Supervisor, Cashier & Customer Service (Former Employee), Pierrefonds, QCNovember 9, 2015
Pros: Great staff
Cons: salary, not enough hours.
This is where I learned how to multitask and delegate tasks and become a supervisor. Management loved my "always kind, always wanting to do my best" attitude. I wasn't treated like a child (I was barely 20) it was nice to be treated like a person. Hardest part of the job was working at the customer service counter, multitasking while working 3 lineups, processing returns, loto tickets, incoming phone calls and regular client purchases. Most enjoyable part of the job was leaning what I was capable of and the friends I made while working at Loblaws.
