Good place to work and you get to know customers and their needs
Product Consultant (Current Employee), Scarborough, OntarioJune 28, 2015
Pros: Get to know customers
Cons: Just minimum wage
I like the fact that we get to know the products in order to show and tell customers.

The "regular" customers we get to know, so we know what they are wanting to purchase and they enjoy sharing stories with us.

Wonderful Place for Retail
Product Consultant (Current Employee), St. ThomasMay 28, 2015
Pros: Amazing people to work for

If the salary was better and benefits were available I would stay there for my career. Everyone at head office and in the store is very friendly and easy to get along with. Working with the general public is also very refreshing

Productive and friendly work environment.
Product Consultant (Current Employee), Edmonton, ABOctober 17, 2014
Pros: friendly co-workers.
Cons: new company owners making changes to the store's operations.
A typical day at work includes assisting customers, process purchases at the till, stocking the freezers, have friendly conversations with co-workers, and ensuring the store is clean and appealing to customers. – more...
The manager at the store I work at is amazing: she makes us all feel like family, ensures our schedules do not conflict with any prior commitments (school, other jobs, family, etc). She trains all new employees and makes sure they are comfortable with the work environment. I cannot think of any reason not to like the management there.
Working here has definitely "brought me out of my shell": I am comfortable speaking with customers and making them feel welcome, and promoting products in the store. – less

productive fun work place with lots to learn
Product Consultant (Former Employee), Saint John, NBJanuary 27, 2014
Pros: food samples
Cons: never a free weekend
Never a dull moment; between keeping the shop looking good for customers and customer services like working the till and answering the phone, changing signs and stocking the freezer, this job was both – more... enjoyable and challenging.
The hardest part of the job was stocking the freezer and mopping up the floors at the end of a long snowy day. The most enjoyable part was helping customers find what what they needed and suggesting complimentary up-sells. – less

Customer Service & Cashier
Customer Service & Cashier (Former Employee), Toronto, ONDecember 12, 2013
Pros: incentives give us extra money in cash
Cons: working in the freezer for hours long.
A typical day at work would have to be working for Customer Service and dealing with customers on a face to face basis. So basically they come in to buy groceries, but all the food is in the other side – more... of the counter where employees stand and help them out. We get what they want. and tell them more about the food, and also gives us the chance of upselling products. I learned to do upselling and ways of marketing the food we have, which we get incentives on. My co-workers would be one other person who will be doing the same job as us, and when its not busy we stock food products and get it all organized. The hardest part of the job is when we get food coming from the truck and we stand in the freezer for more than 3 hours organizing all the food products. Enjoyable part of the job is a good working environment and the food are easy to remember and keep in mind. – less

Fun, Fun, Fun
Store Manager (Current Employee), Tecumseh, ONMay 16, 2013
Pros: free samples and dinners
Cons: working in freezers for hours at a time
A nice customer service job that lets you talk and really get to know your customers. A typical day would be talking to customers and getting to know what foods they like and making suggestions on foods – more... you think they would like. Always having a smile and saying hello is a must when it comes to our store and staff. We want our customers to have the best care and always leave with a smile. The hardest part of the job is when you cannot make a customer happy or help them find what they are looking for. The most enjoyable part is when someone is not having the best day and you turn it around and they leave with a smile. – less

Very fun workplace
key holder (nights) (Former Employee), Ottawa, OntarioMarch 17, 2013
Pros: free samples
Cons: transition from the freezer to the front of the store
I was the key holder, which means i would be in charge of closing the store at night, checking if everything was in order, counting the cash in the register and putting it in the safe, mopping and sweeping – more... the floors.

-I learned how to work a cash register, how to keep the logs in check, i learned how to prioritize, just basically better time management.

-The co-workers were amazing, they were nice, reliable and very honest.

-The hardest part of the job was probably the constant transition between the freezer and the store front.

-The most enjoyable part of the job, was just having the privilege of working with these guys and the general ambiance of the work place. – less

Good environment to be with, especially around Christmas-gets very busy
Product Consultant (Former Employee), Victoria, BCDecember 27, 2012
Pros: the discount of 15%. great staff.
Cons: working hours, management, breaks, legal issues, training was not done by management, but with other staff instead. very impersonal relationship with employer.
A typical day includes NO scheduled breaks- sometimes no break during the 8 hour day.
Management rarely showed, after a month and two weeks, I had still not received my record of employment.
Hardest part – more... of the job would be just the cold of the freezer.
Hours would be either way too much, or too little- I would work one day for 10 hours, then the next for 3.

I did not get paid over time.
Many legal issues and management would not pay over time, give out breaks, as well as very uncomfortable to talk to- would intimidate the worker. – less

Friendly and Productive Workplace
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Woodstock, ONAugust 26, 2012
Pros: working with people
A typical day at work would start with opening the store, followed by counting and balancing the previous day's till. If the store is busy I would immediately begin greeting customers and giving them suggestions – more... and options on our products. Apart from serving customers, daily tasks include, stocking, cleaning, taking inventory, receiving orders and taking freezer temperatures. At the end of the day I would be responsible for all the duties involved with closing the store.

Working for M&M Meat Shops has been an amazing experience. I've learned invaluable lessons on responsibility, commitment and customer service. At the age of nineteen I have successfully been able to put five years of work experience behind me with this company, and am lucky to have had such a positive experience. I have nothing but good words to say about my former boss, my co-workers and the customers I have come to know well. As my University journey begins I am well prepared to handle new career opportunities because of my experience with such a phenomenal company. – less
