Easy going with a fast pace but poor management!
Cashier/Cash Office (Current Employee), Burlington, ONSeptember 2, 2014
Pros: flexible shifts and close to home
Cons: not enough hours
A typical day would usually consist of average things you do at a retail/grocery store such as cleaning, cash, stick etc etc.
I learned to organize my time better and communication skills. Management was okay, hard to talk to and hard to find with a bad work ethic!
My co-workers were great! Fun people who you could easily get a long with.
Hardest part – more... of my job was probably angry customers and the easiest part was flexible hours! – less

Cleaner (Current Employee), Guelph, ONAugust 5, 2014
Pros: enjoyed working along side of my fellow employees and always with my bosses, of any of my jobs right down the line.
Cons: a very short time to get your work done in the time that was allowed of myself.
My typical day was to learn from my team-mates,and to learn and understand the teachings in what supervisors, and my bosses, expected of me to do for each day.
They educated me on what my day consists of.
Cleaning in a 4 hour shift or on a day that I package the product and serve the customer.
We all know the customer comes first on everything and anything
to – more... answer questions, and if I did not know the answers, I always went to my supervisors, or team-mates for the extra help. – less

Great co-worker, Busy flow always but sadly poor work environment and management
Cashier (Former Employee), 745 bloor street west, torontoJuly 3, 2014
Pros: close to home and school
Cons: no hours
The Metro is located in a central busy area filled with students, locals, employees of offices and professors. It is always busy no matter the time of day even at midnight it is quiet active. The co-workers there are friendly and inviting, they like to help and serve but sadly the management is horrible gave attitude and was unprofessional and so is – more... the work environment. Metro should be closed down for a while and renovated to upscale its safety. The hardest part of this job was knowing it was temporary and having to deal with the very poor management but the part I most enjoyed the good quality meat and the great co-workers there. – less

Pushing carts is not fun
Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee), Richmond Hill, ONJune 20, 2014
Pros: could take you break when ever you like
Cons: where do i start....
All I would do is push carts and collect the shopping baskets. It was the worst thing ever. The customers were just plain mean, you have to work outside in all sorts of god awful weather, 99% of the managers were just plain rude and disrespectful to you and there was no opportunity to advance within the company. The hours were terrible 8 hours a week. – more... The work it self sucked. You have to clean up all sorts of spills and messes including plunging toilets and cleaning the bathrooms. The people there were ok but the customers were the worst. Leaving the carts everywhere not caring about it and they were so rude. As soon and you start your shift you just get depressed and angry, you don't care about anything. That's how bad it was – less
