Slacker you got it made. If you work hard and do a good job you now get to finish the slackers job. No incentive to go above and beyond,

They unwilling to listen even if you can show the positive points. Management only cares when their bosses have said they were going to arrive then it's all hands on deck. Unless management is under the microscope the customers are nothing but a after thought. As I have discover most store level management have worked most of their lives their which is not all bad, but what they call experience is in reality lack of experience. Experiencing a wide variety of thinks brings you true experience

Unwilling to listen, don't care about the customers, only worry about upper management
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Ottawa West, ON – 19 June 2017
The store where I worked at had no respect for the clerks, they treated their cashiers as expendable to make the customers feel good even if they were in the wrong. I have seen cashiers crying with no support from the manager who knew the cashier was innocent. The management did not show any professionalism as all rather only offering assistance to certain departments or individuals and only in their interest. After working for them for 2 years I started to feel more healthy when I started to work for a similar company that had a much better management that recognizes the hard work of their workers and that supports them instead of punishing and talking behind their backs. We also had nights that we were severely understaffed and were offered no help to cope with the labor deficit for the night but then were expected to still carry out all duties.
Meat Clerk (Former Employee) – West Kelowna, BC – 17 June 2017
I worked in the meat department as a meat clerk for almost 2 years and I thoroughly hated it. The first few months were great, but it all went downhill from there. The managers are horrible, a few were good but the managers of the meat department are horrible at their job. Several people quit working there while I was working there, most couldn't handle the managers or the work environment. I asked to be relocated a few times and was never moved, despite job postings being posted almost every other week... This job is also very repetitive and requires you to do lots of work. Covering both seafood and the meat department. The only thing that was good about working here was the benefits.
Free meals once in a while, some good managers
Horrible department managers, terrible work environment, varying hours
Cashier/Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 17 June 2017
I very much loved my job. a few pointers that location needed is proper training for front end on both curtesy and cash. As well as the managers need to be able to deal with the bad customers without making it look like their employees are just lazy brats who were trying not to do their job. Head office would give curtesy a set of rules we followed them. Or tried to till the managers would do as they please and make us look incompete.
again I loved my job just wished the managers were a little more co-operative.
great co workers.
not reasonable enough benefits and union cost to much.
There are so many Filipinos (Philippines) working there
FINANCE CLERK - Term (Pinnacle Staffing Solutions) (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 15 June 2017
I have learned many things in Loblaws, and one of them is SAP Accounting Software. Some finance managers will help / guide you step by step to be familiar with the software, but some managers will let their staff to train the newly hired employees.
HMR Clerk (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 6 June 2017
I would come and organize and stock up all the food items in the department. I learned to prep chicken, soups, vegetables and pizza dough. I also helped out a lot of customers in helping them find the right products and served them . The manager at the department was quite rude and used a lot of profanity , she wouldn't let you skip a day of work even if you were sick, but thanks to the other managers we were allowed to take a day off. The hardest part of the job was to clean the chicken rotisserie due to the fact that it would take a long amount of time to clean as there were various procedures in cleaning it. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with teammates.
HMR Clerk (Former Employee) – North York, ON – 4 June 2017
A typical day at loblaws is actually really nice the customers are always very friendly and respectful and the co-workers and managers are very nice and understanding people. I learned a lot about customer service and also how to prep and cook food.
Employee,meat clerk,health and beauty clerk (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 2 June 2017
hate this place department managers are great but the store managers are terrible. This store alone put multiple ppl on stress leave myself included. i have only worked at the one store but ive had 3 terrible managers, i was hired while we had an amazing manager who was super strict but listened to what ppl had to say, then when he became a district manager and we got a guy who was trying to fire anyone who had worked there for more then a year, then we had a guy who thought it was ok to throw things at his employees, and now they have a lady who has put 4 ppl in the hospitable with stress my mother included and now she has depression ....company in general could be better if they looked at the store managers better. and they need to do some interviews withe random employees so they can stop some of the abuse.
could luck out with amazing manager who makes you love your job even though he is strict
