Cons: not enough hours, little respect, a lot of rumors
I enjoyed the friends i made at loblaw. I learned to always try to out do myself. Management at my perticular branch was not the best unfortunately. The manager did not treat the employees with the proper respect or care that they deserved. The hardest part of the job was definitely not having enough hours seeing as i love to keep busy and i love to – more... work. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to know the people as well as the company and being able to familiarise myself with the store and properly helping clients that needed my attention. – less
HMR Clerk (Current Employee), Canada – August 4, 2012
Pros: with benefits
Cons: only have a few hours of work per week for now since i'm new.
A typical day at work would be to prepare meals, make sure that the work area is clean all the time and be courteous and polite to each and everyone. I have learned that a smile goes a very long way. The people at loblaws are very friendly and accomodating. I was able to adjust because of everybody's help. The hardest part of the job would be the standing – more... 8 hours its a very far cry from seating in an office for 8 hours. Good way of losing calories I should say. The most enjoyable part of the job is that I'm surrounded by food. I love cooking and to add to that everybody is very kind and nice. – less

Large Company with many opportunities for advancement at uncompetitive salaries
Associate Merchant (Current Employee), Brampton, ON – April 17, 2012
Pros: internal career development opportunities
Cons: uncompetitive compensation
This company has a lot of opportunities for advancement internally and is a great company to start with for non-experienced personnel. The company however, is not competitive once colleagues progress to a more experienced level. A 10% salary cap is imposed on all role changes making the company progressively less competitive as candidates move higher – more... in the ranks. Essentially the company actually prices itself out of employee retention. – less
