Awful management
Hot Deli Clerk (Former Employee), Cambridge, ONFebruary 15, 2016
Pros: Unionized
Cons: Long hours, inconsistent schedules, poor management (especially in regards to the union)
Management was sub par. Meaning that they didn't properly know how to communicate with the union. Workers who were lazy/rude/demeaning never got fired, because they could complain to the union that they were being unfairly penalized, and then management would back off.

Although they attempted to bring an upbeat work culture into the workplace, both store managers that I worked under failed to consistently encourage the managers under them, as well as the common clerks in the store.

As is typical of retail work, the hours are long and inconsistent. The only time periods that I had hours that weren't like this were when I served as a Assistant Department Manager for a total period of a month.

Loblaw's is a good experience but i did not find the location very interesting. Less supervision. Kioks should be on the front not in the hidden on a corner.

Assembler (Former Employee), Calgary, ABFebruary 11, 2016
Pros: Pros: driving electric pallet jack, free fruits at lunch break.
Cons: 10 hour shift, working inside the freezer.
very hard and cold work environment but excellent at gaining muscles and also good exercise. the electric pallet jack was very enjoyable to drive around the warehouse. The management were very respectful and helpful all around. The hardest part about the job was being able to lift boxes inside the freezer only because it was very cold temperature. My co-workers i got along with good. The most enjoyable part of working there was mostly driving the electric pallet jack.

Produce Clerk (Current Employee), Ottawa, ONFebruary 10, 2016
Pros: Good start up job.
Cons: Can be stressful, and wage progression is almost none.
This place is a good starting job for students or anyone who needs a job. The workplace environment can be fun, but depending on the manager in charge it can be stressful and dissatisfying. I have learned some skills, such as, communication skills, customer relations, inventory control, purchasing and money management.

Basic Job
Photographer (Current Employee), Ottawa, ONFebruary 9, 2016
Typical day can range from nothing to do, to the printer malfunctioning, me and my coworker (with 3 extra years experience than me) work on fixing them commercial photo printer.

Good job for school, not good living wise, not enough coworker involvement in terms of advancing the departement in a fashion that would best suit the customers.

Ex. it took 1 1/2 years for a photo studio to start selling frames and only were given about 40-50 frames because it was a seasonal item.
(we had to bulk order and stash them so we could sell them throughout the year even though they are supposed to be seasonal)

Pros: none

Piece of poo job, my supervisor treated me like dirt on the road, and all the managers were fake as ever there, so glad I'm out of there and working somewhere where people actually have some respect for each other.

Application Support Analyst (Former Employee), Brampton, ONJanuary 30, 2016
Pros: huge company, lots of things to learn
Cons: IT department is very fast paced
It was a co-op program for a year in the IT department. Everyone was very friendly and willing to help. The owner of the internship program encourages all interns to pursue interests that is related to IT and he offers to help direct to the right people if need be. Overall, there are a lot of areas to explore and I would do it again.
