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
Meat Clerk (Former Employee) – Stratford, ON – 12 April 2017
A typical day at No Frills would be stocking the shelves and bunkers. Also, helping customers with questions and facing the store at the end of the night. I learnt about business and how to deal with customers.
Diary Clerk (Former Employee) – Olds, AB – 10 April 2017
Everyday was full of very simple work to do. Management was kind of bad, the head manager was not a very nice fellow. Hardest part of the job was taking in the shipments.Most enjoyable thing was getting to socialize with my fellow workers.
Grocery Clerk (Current Employee) – Woodbridge, ON – 21 March 2017
Good environment to work in and also friendly staff members. Being a member of this company, I learnt good customer service and the ability to communicate efficiently with customers. I also learnt to be responsible with the work I do. The workplace environment provided a safe, clean and comfortable place to work in.

No Frills can be very busy, but shifts go by fast. Management is good, and you get to work with good co-workers. But sometimes it can be hard with the type of customers we get. The most enjoyable moments are where you get a chance to talk and get to know everyone, and where you are greeted by your co workers and certain customers, even when you are not working on the day. Since applying to No Frills, ive learned and improved my hand-eye coordination, and also improved my customer service skills.
Sometimes we get treats! Also great co-workers to talk to, you get to make new friends, and recieve the freedom to be independent
Good place to be working at, very flexible with hours.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 15 March 2017
No Frills is a good place to work at if you are in high school, they are very flexible with hours. I, however have graduated from high school and need more hours too build my savings and college funds for the future. No Frills is my first job, it has taught me a lot of patience dealing with customers and how to communicate with them. (naturally a quiet person towards people I don't know) at first I would not be asking how their day was but now a lot of customers have recognized who I am and enjoy speaking with me. The hardest part of my job is to cope with the customers who aren't happy, but I've learned how to deal with these situations these past two years I've had this job. The most enjoyable part is to see my customers happy and leave with a smile.
