Grocery Clerk (Current Employee) – London, ON – 24 October 2013
You learn relatively nothing new because management it run top down, which allows for little knowledge to trickle down to anyone outside management. The people you work with are amazing, great and funny people, most of whom you'll end up calling your friends. The hardest part of the job is maintaining sanity while working seemingly endless shifts when business is slow. The people you work with are the most enjoyable part of the job and its simple labour if that's what you're interested in.
early mornings, long hours, no raises, zero upward mobility, no responsibility
Grocery Clerk (Former Employee) – Stratford, ON – 4 August 2017
Horrible place to work, everyone there is toxic and I was constantly bullied while working there. When I informed management about the situation the problem only subsided for a week. I had to constantly do other people's work and I was often blamed for not completing my own set of responsibilites. Again, management did nothing to fix the problem and I was left doing 3 jobs a day. My final issue with the company was the amount of shifts they gave me. At most I had 1-2 shifts a week and after the managers gave me more, the store owners removed it. Do not waste your time with this corrupt company.

No frills was a very fun place to work but they paid the bare minimum for employees with little no no chance of advancement. In my 3+ years of working at no frills I did not have any advancement or credit for my hard work.

It wasn't a very good experience. it was very low quality. My typical day at work was alright. The management was unprofessional and didn't care about there jobs. The work place culture felt like no one wanted to be there no on was friendly.

Produce Clerk (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 6 July 2017
It was a good job to have while I was in school, but after finishing school the jobs was not suitable for my needs anymore. The management for the most part was good and overall I'd say it's a good place to get your first job, so you can gain some experience.
Good for students
Not enough hours to go around and no chance of promotion
Cashier (Former Employee) – Thunder Bay, ON – 27 June 2017
I was one of the few Aboriginal Workers in terms of Culture it's diverse. Management and Supervisors were nice great people to work along. Racial Slurs and Inequality by coworkers happened during a couple of incidents. Hardest part was to pick up other peoples slack
I enjoyed how we could come together as a work place and have a bbq
