I have loved working there most of the time love the customers especially the regulars but lately i have felt like I want a change to go elsewhere
Cashier (Current Employee), Timmins, ONApril 28, 2015
Pros: I love working with the customers and co-workers
Cons: problem customers sometimes and other co-workers and poor management
the thing I most enjoy about working there as a cashier is the talking and serving the customers making them happy over the years you get to know all the regulars , and they want to come see me because of my fast friendly service . the hardest part about the job is dealing with problem customers but not many of those .

Productive
Cashier (Current Employee), Brampton, ONApril 17, 2015
Pros: Friendly co-workers
Cons: Short shifts
The most enjoyable part of my job is getting to interact with the customers. The hardest part for me on the job is that I can't help people in the isles when I see that they need help to find something, or when I am standing on cash and they need help to find something. I don't like that I can't provide the proper customer service I know customers need. The management is great. I feel confident in asking for assistance when needed and that they are their to support me. Majority of the co-workers are friendly and welcoming and willing to help if you need it. I also enjoy that when i work at night I get to work on the customer service desk, which requires me to multitask and stay busy. I also clean around the cash registers, and face around the front of the cash.

Work at Metro
Cashier (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONApril 9, 2015
Pros: Steady workload
Cons: Not enough hours
A typical day at work included customer service, handling money, cleaning and lifting groceries or boxes. As a cashier, I got to interact with people constantly. Helping them with their grocery needs. I learned how to interact with many different variety of people. Sometimes if someone's having a bad day, I would go out of my way to be extra courteous and attentive. I enjoyed working with my coworkers, and the management. There really wasn't a hard part about being a cashier unless I had a double shift and my feet would hurt from standing. The most enjoyable part was working with people, I'm very friendly.

Not exactly the greatest place to work
Cut Fruit Worker (Former Employee), London, ONApril 7, 2015
Pros: lost of hours and some benefits(dental)
Cons: long hours and not enough free time compared to shifts
Metro wasn't necessarily a bad job, but the only people I got to see were my co-workers, who were usually to busy to talk. The hours were plentiful, and definitely possibility of advancement, but since I was not there very long, I may not be able to give an accurate representation. ***when I worked there I did not qualify for regular minimum wage, instead i got students minimum.

It has been a very long time since I have worked at Metro since I was working there when it was still called A&P. However working at Metro was a very relaxed passing job. I learned how to prep fruit and vegetables, making fruit and vegetable trays, assisting customers in person and over the phone and also stalking shelves.

Produce Department Clerk (Former Employee), Toronto, ONFebruary 28, 2015
Pros: 10 min. washroom break
Cons: work is tedious and slightly straining
My job included sorting, managing and maintaining products that fell under the produce category. My instruction and the work both done by myself and alongside my fellow employees was expected to be done swiftly and flawlessly, but was enjoyable nonetheless because of the company that I was associated with.

Cashier (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONFebruary 22, 2015
Pros: 1 hour break
Cons: short hours
Metro was a good environment because everybody there was friendly, very helpful and the manager was very supportive to everyone. I learned a lot at metro while I was there about the cash register, and also produce. the hardest part of my job was standing for long periods of time, but I got over that once I got used to it. I enjoyed pretty much everything at metro except for the short hours.
