Telecom & PC Insurance), Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON10 July 2017
Loblaw and its subsidiaries are a great place to work. Head Office Jobs are well compensated but Job Security is non existent. Especially over the past 5 years, as Loblaw expands and amalgamates other companies (Shoppers etc.), they constantly offset costs by reducing their headcount, sometimes cutting positions months after they hired.

Fine place to work
Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) –  Lethbridge, AB9 July 2017
Minimum wage but job is secure and the management is nice enough. Alright place to work overall.

Issues that one might have can be easily sorted out with management, and managers are nice and approachable.

Decent place to work
HMR CLERK (Former Employee) –  London, ON6 July 2017
I worked at Loblaws for 3 and a half years in the HMR department. My favorite part about working at Loblaws was the community culture and sense of family amongst all the staff members in the store. The company does a good job at creating programs and initiatives that support diversity, employee wellbeing, and positivity. However, it has been my experience that certain managers do not promote these core values and for that reason my review is only 3 stars. Another big issue is that corporate is always cutting back labor which forces employees to work to their breaking point to try to meet increasing demands. Customers are often unhappy regarding certain things in the store and many of these issues directly relate to departments not having enough labor to get things done and in my opinion this is not an effective way to run a business.
Pros
Company provides free meals on occasion, 10% discount, community culture
Cons
Corrupt management, corporate constantly cutting labor

Cashier (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB2 July 2017
The work day does not change that often. Usually stays the same and you don`t change much of your actions to accommodate to anything new they might add to your job entailment. Management is pretty friendly and understandable. There`s nothing really hard about this job. The only thing that bugged me was that we weren`t taught everything and we had to call a supervisor over for every little problem we had, such as, suspending a transaction.
Pros
nothing
Cons
don`t give a lot of hours to anybody working unless you`re a manager

average place to work
Assistant Produce Manager (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON1 July 2017
Average place to work. Work/life balance is not good. Not consistant with shifts. Seniority means nothing. With other companys including the grocery industry, seniority is an advantage. Better hours, better pay, better benefits. Again Loblaws is average

Grocery Clerk (Former Employee) –  Cardston, AB26 June 2017
Extra Foods had a productive work environment that was also fun and did not discourage employees. Most days consisted of stocking shelves in the grocery and dairy departments as well as facing items on isles in the grocery and dairy departments.

Loblaws is a grocery store, just like any other. Many of the people working there have been in the same positions for 10+ years. Job security is nice, flexible hours, management is nice enough.

Its a grocery store
Cashier (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON20 June 2017
This store is just the run of the mill grocery store. Nothing special about it. Worked for a year for them without any of the management knowing my name. Management was average.

Unfortunate management scenario.
General Merchandising clerk (Former Employee) –  Kingston, ON20 June 2017
Though it was 5 years ago now the way management handled their workers was really poor. Requested time off was ignored because of nothing other than laziness in reworking the schedule. Simple day to day HR issues. Sad.

When I go in these days it is criminally understaffed. Have waited as a customer in line for over half an hour. The movement to minimize staffing which I assume has happened to save money is a bad decision.
Pros
Not sure if there were any.
Cons
Working there.

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,
Baker (Current Employee) –  London, ON19 June 2017
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
Pros
10% discount on over priced products
Cons
Unwilling to listen, don't care about the customers, only worry about upper management
