Cashier and Customer Service Clerk (Current Employee), Georgetown, ONMay 20, 2016
Pros: Friendly environment
Cons: Angry Customers
I have learned a lot about customer service, working on a cash lane and most importantly keeping customers happy. The management worked hard and listened to the requests of the employees on things that could make work better. The hardest part of the job would definitely have to be dealing with angry customers just because you don't want them to be angry you always want to leave a customer happy and satisfied, but the best part of the job would have to be the relationships that you build with you colleges as well as the frequent shoppers.

Suitable for a student with no work experience.
Cashier (Former Employee), Surrey, BCMay 19, 2016
Pros: Good customer service experience and part time benefits.
Cons: Poor management, rude supervisors and low wages. You also have to work weekends and evenings frequently.
I find that supervisors lack respect for employees (reprimanding you in front of customers at your cash register). In your training, you are told a number of things that would generally not be allowed. But when it comes time to practice these store policies, they let customers get away with it. It makes you look like an idiot in front of said customer.

You do get benefits part-time and I enjoyed a number of my co-workers. But the company as a whole needs to make improvements with management.

Replenishment Clerk (Current Employee), Spruce Grove, ABMay 17, 2016
Pros: Free Lunchs occasionally
Cons: Not enough hours
A typical day at work for me would be filling dairy with products that are needed to be stocked as well at the grocery department. I trade the empty milk crates with full ones. As well as the eggs. I stock the shelves and make sure everything in the grocery is organized and neat. I have learns to give great customer assistance, deal with difficult situations, work well with my co-workers and many more, The hardest part of working is working alone, you can not get as much things done as you need to with only one colleague. I enjoy working with everyone, I get alone with all my colleagues and we occasionally have BBQ's and snacks from the bakery and other departments.

Would never recommend anyone work here
Clerk (Current Employee), Sudbury, ONMay 16, 2016
Cons: Management, Union representation.
One of the worst places to work. Management are awful to their employees, Store manager is extremely greedy to not give anyone hours, favoritism is what they recognize at all times, never hard work. And the union representation for everyone is just as awful as management. You're basically paying union dues for them not to do their jobs.
The most enjoyable part of the job is clocking out and going home.

Assistant Produce Manager (Former Employee), Simcoe / Kitchener, ONMay 13, 2016
Pros: wages
Cons: everything else
I worked for 2 different locations as an Assistant Produce manager and Full time night clerk. wages were good, management was not. When working nights, the day staff would do nothing all day then blame me in the morning when work for 5 people was not done by myself over 1 night. I would frequently shop there during the day and noticed nothing was getting done. they were constiantly on the lookout for loop holes with my hours making me work 10 days in a row of nights all the time. They refused to hire a part-time to help me with the work load yet had no problem hiring more part-time for the day shifts. There are many other things I could go on about what's wrong with this company but I won't.

Working in Superstore was very enjoyable and Learning process because everyday you meet new people and even we learn a lot from people
Production Worker (Former Employee), Langley, BCMay 12, 2016
When i start the work our manager give us a task sheet for each person and we have to follow that sheet whole the day. I realized the importance of working in a team and complete that task together. Everything was so organised and well maintained there was no chance of mistake. Everybody was so nice and follow everything what their superior tell them to do and there was no chance of complaint. As on weekend there was too much rush or crowd in superstore, so we need to work a bit more than our regular speed. While doing so we daily meet many new customers and they all were having some different problems i finding their grocery and we need to look out for them.

Decent part-time job
Cashier/Courtesy Clerk (Current Employee), Calgary, ABMay 4, 2016
Pros: Flexible hours, covered by union
Cons: Salary could be better
The hours are very flexible, as in you pick the hours and days you're available to work. The salary is ok considering the work you do. As an employee, you'll be covered by the union, so your job there is essentially guaranteed until you choose to leave. If you have another part-time job, this would be a good addition.

Photographer (Former Employee), Brockville, ONApril 27, 2016
My passion for photography really grew during this job. I really enjoyed the constant client interaction for all the services the store provided. There were many obstacles to over come especially during high peaks such as christmas time . Stressful situations were a every day nature at the photo studio but made the day go by a lot faster and kept things interesting and on point.
