Wages are low, takes a long time to get a raise.

The staff have a very good work ethic. They work very hard together as a team and socialize together outside of work. Very good morale.
Pharmacy Assistant (Current Employee), Sydney River, NSOctober 30, 2013
A typical day in the pharmacy is very fast moving and busy. Due to labor cutbacks I have learned to work fast and efficient in all aspects of the pharmacy. One negative aspect of working there is that they aren't forthcoming with regular raises in salary.The girls in the pharmacy are a great bunch to work with. Everyone gets along together during and – more... outside of work. The hardest part of work has to be on days when it is very busy and there is no overlap of staff. It can get very stressful when the wait times for prescriptions are longer due to staff shortage. The most enjoyable part of my job has to be when a patient is thankful to me for my assistance in helping them, with whatever it is they need. – less

Pros: great benefits
Cons: staying after shift ended
A typical day included computer emails, computer work, and necessary follow up phone calls. The hardest part of the job was having to stay longer at work. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with fabulous people who supported my role within the team.

NOT FUN TO WORK
CASHER (Current Employee), North York, ONAugust 8, 2013
Pros: rarely
Cons: on your feet with little pay
WORK STARTS OF SLOW DEPENDING ON THE DAY AND REALLY PICKS UP AT LUNCH HOUR. YOU ARE ON YOUR FEET AND DO SOME LIFTING. MOST OF MY CO-WORKERS ARE NICE AND HARD WORKING. SOME LEAVE THEIR JOB FOR OTHERS TO DO. THEIR IS A LOT OF FAVOURTISM. HARDEST PART IS DEALING WITH SOME CUSTOMERS AND SOME MANAGEMENT AND THE GOOD PART IS YOU MAKE GOOD FRIENDS AND MEET – more... DIFFERENT PEOPLE. – less

Good part time work
Front End Employee and Garden Centre (Current Employee), Carlingwood Mall, OttawaAugust 8, 2013
Pros: good people and work environment
Cons: poor hours and pay
Loblaws is a great company because of its workplace values, but in recent years they have routinely slashed salaries and have replaced good paying positions with revolving door part time employees. It is a decent position only as a part time summer or school job, and this is almost entirely because their pay is not competitive considering McDonalds – more... or Tim Hortons pay the same rate and offer better hours, but the quality of work experience is slightly better at Loblaws. – less

Horrible place to work, Mistreated, overworked, underpaid
clerk (Current Employee), Toronto, ONJuly 18, 2013
Pros: college discount of 10%
Cons: everything, do your self a favour and stay away from this company
Ive been here for almost 10 years and place has declined. All locations are the same. Everyone is unhappy about their treatment from the company. Its horribly mismanaged, workers are paid minimum wage to work long days. No weekends off maybe once a month if lucky, just an all around unpleasant place to work. Nothing but stress and worries every day.

No respect

Pros: coworkers are friendly
Cons: customers are rude and have no respect for you, horrible store management

Produce Clerk (Former Employee), Bayers lake Nova scotiaJune 2, 2013
The job started out pretty good. I found that my experience at loblaws began to go down hill when our management changed and the group dynamic of the department started going down hill. It was soon after this changed that i decided it was not the company for me.

Great and fun work, horrible management
Produce Clerk (Current Employee), Guelph, ONMay 30, 2013
Pros: variety of jobs so always busy, never a dull moment
Cons: management, long hours
My typical day at work is organize the counters and put out stock, help out customers and do the odd job for the department. Usually working nights I put away stock and organize the cooler and back room before receiving the shipment. What I learned is how to be efficient, and how to work hard from how busy it gets on weekends. My co-workers are great, – more... you could say my entire department is just a big group of friends, which makes working enjoyable while doing my job. The hardest and only hard part of the job would be management. My old produce manager was great (until he was forced to leave under certain circumstances), but the store managers are horrible to me. There's a lot of miscommunication so personally I feel like I'm being harassed, I don't think a worker should be grieving at work because a certain manager or two is working. Even overall the managers are just rude and childish, it's not professional at all. This is the number one and only reason I would not suggest this job, it seems like they discriminate against the kids working there or just any minority at best. – less

Was very productive, yet hired at a bad time
Deli Clerk (Former Employee), Saint-Laurent, QCMay 30, 2013
Pros: great colleagues
Cons: minimal hours
A typical day at work involved getting the deli ready at 8am. After mixing the salads, I'd start preparing the fried foods and the chicken. Total preparation took about 3 hours, after which the lunch-rush would begin. After which there were very little clients. Though I was told by my manager and colleague that I was very productive and a quick learner, – more... I was let go due to hour cuts and summer's coming which led to less customers. I enjoyed working with my main colleague, and my manager was very enjoyable to work for. The hardest part of my job was finding things to do between 2 and 5, due to little to no customers. – less
