Order Picker (Former Employee) – South Surrey, BC – 18 February 2018
It was a great place to work at. Management was super nice and the employees are amazing. Not one jerk in that entire building. The pay is great and they offer great benefits. Just be prepared to regularly work 10 hour shifts and do the same thing every day.
Typical day at work is payroll and attendance. weekly paper works for generation and submission to respective departments. The store operation is ok its just that when we need help regarding prices adjustment so the store prices can be competitive we ask head office departments but we go home empty handed either our email will have an unending forward message to more than ten person in several departments, we are practically clueless on where to find help. most the time they would implement something but they are not prepared for the downside of it or not prepare to correct what ever future mistake may occur during and after the implementation.
Meat Clerk (Current Employee) – Abbotsford, BC – 5 December 2017
I enjoy my job and co workers but sadly after many years my store has decided to close its doors, Some people do tend to feel a little too secure in there jobs because of the union in place and are lazy.
Free food in staff room
replaceable, unappreciated while the lazy people get promoted because of being employed longer.

MANAGER, SUPPLY CHAIN NETWORK DESIGN (Current Employee) – Burlington, ON – 28 November 2017
Great culture, salary is low but it is an enjoyable place to work. Head office has a gym and great lunches. Work life balance is relatively normal and the type of work and opportunities are pretty good,
Machine Operator/Assembler (Current Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 27 November 2017
Fast paced work environment based completely off of seniority and ability to gain extra money from incentive bonus. Job security for the time being is excellent. Automation in the future may be a possibility due to competetors taking that route
Meat Clerk (Former Employee) – West Kelowna, BC – 23 November 2017
I would have to agree with the guy/lady who also wrote a review for the West Kelowna store in the meat department...
The managers in the meat department are awful, the store managers do nothing about it. I worked there for 2 years and it was the worst job I ever had, period. Moody meat managers who act like children and the other staff didn't help either. The mood in the department was always grim, and obviously very cold. Do not apply here if you're someone who doesn't like the cold, your hands will be numb a lot and handling frozen product for 5 hrs. + is really hard on your hands.
I noticed the managers sometimes dropping product on the ground then picking it up as wrapping it anyways. The same floor we all walked on and used! The department is gross, the equipment and back rooms are always dirty. Cleaning up at night is the worst shift, you have to squeegee the floor of blood and guts then do tons of other jobs on top of that. Finishing your "list" is always a hard thing to do as you will almost never have enough time to do so. Especially around thanksgiving and Christmas when you have to fill the turkey bins every 30 minutes.
It may seem like all I'm doing is complaining but there really isn't many positives working in this department in this store. If you have feelings and want a positive environment to work in, this isn't the place. Apply elsewhere in the store. You can tell that no one likes working there because they're always hiring and tons of people quit when I worked there for reasons I mentioned above or because the manager gets picky with prospectivemore... employees. I had a couple friends who got written up for no reason in order to try and get them fired.less
Managers, cold, bad staff, no job security, very fast environment, no downtime
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 20 November 2017
If I could give one word of advice to people considering applying to this place, It would be don't. You are not treated as a person with them, but instead as a number, or an easily replaceable resource. There are multiple issues that lead to an alarmingly high turn over rate, but they refuse to address them, because it benefits them. They will keep you for the duration of the probationary period, and then get rid of you while they can, just to bring in a new batch of 15-20 employees.
Home Meal Replacement/ Coffee bar (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 18 November 2017
I've worked at loblaws for about 4 years now and can't seem to leave. Every summer i come back to a team thats ready to work and have a good time while doing. Most days i see families and friends come by and grab a coffee from the coffee bar which puts a smile on my face.
Transportation Clerk (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 18 November 2017
I loved working here. My boss was amazing. I learned a lot about distribution and transportation in the grocery business. Workplace culture was great, a lot of wonderful people worked for this company. Hardest part of the job was leaving to relocate back to BC.
