Great people, Doesn't require much mental work.
Checkout Operator (Current Employee), Toronto, OnApril 17, 2014
Pros: great people
Cons: long hours, boring
The people are great to work with there. My only problem is that you don't have to push yourself in this work environment. I need a work environment were I can always be learning and growing with the company. I like to be active and always be doing something, At times it is so empty in the store I am left with nothing to do.

Best people ever! work there with me.
Cashier/floral designer (Current Employee), Hamilton, ONApril 9, 2014
Pros: caring and supportive staff
Cons: not enough hours in the week, sometimes only 8 hours in a week.
The most enjoyable part of the job is when a customer and I are both smiling and enjoying our experience with one another. I am a very social person and like to make people feel at home. Management is fantastic at Metro, they always make everything a positive experience. Sometimes ( not always ), but sometimes I hate to leave work, I enjoy the interactions – more... and I get into a groove with my work and don't want to leave because time flies by too fast. – less

Metro
Manager (Current Employee), Brampton, ONApril 7, 2014
A typical day of work is putting up stock. I've learned how to be a more patient person through this work experience. The management is good. The co-workers are friendly and helpful. The hardest part of the job is working in the frozen food section. The most enjoyable part of the job is the co-workers.

Got me on my feet
Cashier (Former Employee), Guelph, ONApril 3, 2014
A typical day working at Metro would look like the following:
- get on the floor and set up my till
- have customers line up and serve them
- make sure everything is priced correctly
-make sure they found everything and interact with them as you check, price check and bag their groceries.
- check shelf s and organize shelf s better when the tills are – more... not busy
-keep an eye out for loss prevention.

I enjoyed the management at Metro as a cashier and they were very helpful with my goals. My co- workers were a breeze to work with.

The most enjoyable part of my job was meeting new people from all walks of life and hearing different stories each day.

Going into this job I knew that I could only receive 6-10 hours a week due to their availability to provide that amount of hours. Before accepting this position, I had a bad luck of being unemployed for 2 months and it was a blessing receiving this job and working for this company. It helped me on my toes. Unfortunately, I had to leave this position due to the fact that I had received my current job from Holiday Inn Hotel and I was getting double booked. The lack of hours was the only reason why I left this job, – less

Amazing job culture with a terrific staff
Meat department, Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee), 404 plaza Newmarket ONFebruary 17, 2014
Pros: great staff
Cons: long hours
As a an employee at Metro, I can only say good things about it. Everyday was intended to provide the best service for customers, while maintaining an ethical yet uplifting environment within the staff. I learned many things over the course of my employment, one includes to be open upon learning new jobs, because not only is change beneficial, but it – more... makes you a better employee as well. Furthermore, the management and co-workers were awesome. It was simply awesome because we didn't see ourselves as individuals working, but we saw ourselves as a team trying to provide the best for both customers and Metro. Regarding my job, the most difficult part was getting all my tasks done in one shift, however it was also the most enjoyable because it felt like an accomplishment when I completed them all. – less

Job itself was fast paced always different. People were nice but not enough hours.
Deli Clerk (Former Employee), Orleans, OntarioFebruary 4, 2014
Pros: close to home
Cons: scheduling errors
The job itself was good. I learned a lot and covered many different shifts. Customer interaction was great. Co-workers were a good team. Hardest part of the job was sometimes dealing with a supervisor who often provided mixed schedules/conflicts.

Best part of the job was interacting with different types of customers.

Great place to build your set of skills
Customer Service /Cashier (Former Employee), Store 780January 23, 2014
Pros: flexible work hours
The store is really busy in the afternoon, but is quiet toward the evening time. I have gained a lot of skills in the five years that I have worked there. One such skill is quick problem solving skills. You are not trained on how to deal with all the problems that occur in the store. In my situation I was not really trained at all. I learnt everything – more... by looking at what other workers did and occasionally I had to find out my own way of dealing with issues that arose in the store. All in all I enjoyed working there as every workday was an adventure of its own. – less
