Productive and well managed work environment
GROCERY CLERK (Former Employee), London, ONNovember 8, 2014
A typical day at work would start off with the arrival of a new order of products which could be for either the grocery, dairy, frozen, bakery, or produce departments. Once the order had arrived grocery clerks such as myself would begin stocking the products on their designated shelves/bunkers. Once the order was complete the grocery clerks would begin – more... working on back stock (left over products from previous orders that there was now room for on the shelves) until the end of their shift. I learned many things during my time working for no frills including how to properly stock different products, how to use a hand jack, how to deal with customers, and how to work well with a large group of co-workers. From my experience the management at no frills was very good. My managers were always organized and ready to assist if need be. I would say the hardest part of the job would be loading/unloading heavy boxes which I still had no problem with. And finally I would say that the most enjoyable part of my job was interacting with my co-workers. This is because my no frills had a very friendly and welcoming environment which allowed all employees to work together positively. – less

Overall a good place
Grocery Clerk (Former Employee), Sydney, NSOctober 16, 2014
Pros: great staff and management
Cons: little room for advancement
In a typical day I would be tasked with loading and unloading trucks via Forklift (Raymond), managing stock, filling stock to shelves, refilling display stock and rotation of perishable stock (dairy, produce, bread, etc).

Management was generally very easy to work with and was flexible and accommodating to me during my time in University and High School – more... and gave clear instructions on my tasks.

Co-workers were very easy to get along with and made work very enjoyable and less monotonous each day (Many of my tasks were repetitive in nature). – less

Pros: benefits
Cons: no excitement at all
Working at a cheap grocery store was not my ideal job. But I did it with a smile on my face, and did what I had to do. I was always the most cheerful one there, and the quickest as well.
It was a part time job that got me through high school and college.

Cashier (Former Employee), Royal york and queenswayAugust 1, 2014
A typical day at No Frills, would be working at your till beginning of your shift to the end. Dealing with customers scanning there items helping them if they need help with items.
What I have learned by working at No Frills, I learned a bunch of codes for the produce I also learned a lot of new produce from different countries. My co-workers at No – more... Frills were very nice and friendly, they helped me a lot when I needed codes and didn't know how to do certain things. The hardest part of working at No Frills or any type of grocery store is learning all the codes. The most enjoyable part of working at No Frills was making the customers smile. – less

A very professional, serious workplace- For better and worse
Grocery Clerk (Former Employee), Airdrie, ABMay 17, 2014
Pros: good management
Cons: inflexible, forced hours with harsh punishments and zero job-security.
The job is basic incarnate, essentially impossible to mess up given proper training. The customers are generally respectful and easy to help, management is concise and everything is generally pretty peachy.

Until you're sick for a day, wherein the company is perfectly happy with tossing you into the ditch and picking up another round of newbies.

Easy – more... to get into the job, yes, if only for the fact that the employee turn-over per year is at a quite frankly disturbing level. I heard a figure that reached triple digits, as in upwards of 100 or more, but nothing official or statistically solid. With how many people I saw go in my time there, I'm inclined to believe it.

No discounts either.

So in short, it's a good place to work at as long as you never miss a day for any reason ever, you don't mind a sub-minimum wage pay, and no benefits. – less

Productive workplace with room to advance, fast paces
Cash Office Supervisor (Former Employee), Clarenville NLMay 13, 2014
In summary, was a great place to work, management had things very put together which made for happier climate in the workplace. I advanced in this work position to the cash office which was a new experience to me, I enjoyed it, was very hectic at times, but I enjoyed the challenge and improved daily. The hardest part of the job was time management, – more... being that there was only one supervisor/cash office employee night time which made for minimal time to get everything done, overall would definitely consider going back to this place to work if I needed too. – less

Excellent place to start, amazing coworkers
Meat Clerk (Current Employee), Edmonton, ABMay 8, 2014
Pros: amazing coworkers, pizza lunches for a job well done
Cons: not enough hours at times, manager switches
Typically at work I would check dates, stock shelves, clean shelves, answer any and all customer questions or concerns and make sure everything was in proper working order.
At work, I learned to be independent and get my job done well, on time and with the maximum amount of effort possible.
The managers switched around a lot, but the few who stayed – more... were amazing, they always made sure I felt welcome into our little No Frills family.
My coworkers were the best part about my job, they made coming into work the most amazing time. I went in for a job and came out with tons of new friends. We all help each other out and make sure we`re all on task. I couldn`t have asked for a better team! – less
