Floral Clerk (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABAugust 24, 2015
Pros: Union job
Cons: Competition for job
I did all the work that was assigned to me - preparation of flowers, customer service, fruit baskets, cashier, watering plants. I liked my co-workers and management. The hardest part of the job was the amount of knowledge needed to be in this department. There was nothing I disliked about my job.

Great working environment
Customer Service (Current Employee), EdmontonAugust 14, 2015
Pros: Great working with people
Cons: Not enough hours.
A lot of running around doing your own tasks and helping other employees with others whether its watching the customer service desk, cashing, filing out timecards to ensure employees get paid, helping meet customers needs and ensuring they are happy with the service you are providing them.

I learn that it takes hard work to move up in the company, and that you have to prioritize the tasks you are given on a daily basis and ensure they all get completed.

The most enjoyable part of the job has to for sure be interacting with customers and employees on a daily basis.

Productive space with decent management and lots to do
Baker's assistant (Former Employee), Lethbridge, AlbertaAugust 12, 2015
Pros: Regimented, guaranteed breaks, decnt management, great coworkers
Cons: Irregular hours, hours per week not guaranteed
Great place to work. Had a second job at the time and were very accomodating of that. Sometimes difficult to get hours, lots of employees, and as I was a new employee, hours were given to them before me. So the hierarchical nature of the employee organization made it a bit difficult for me. Shift work meant irregular hours, but that was fine by me, I needed as much work as possible. I was kept very busy, which I enjoyed.

Work at Safeway
Acting Manager and staff Pharmacist (Former Employee), Calgary, AB OgdenAugust 6, 2015
Pros: Unknown Shopper on the spot check.
Cons: Air miles Tuesday.
Work at Safeway was fun and quite good. I was a valued staff. I would have stayed but needed to help my wife with our baby since she was was going to Nursing school during the day. This was the reason I joined Shoppers first as an overnight pharmacists. The benefits and compensation was quite good.

productive and taught me some new things
deli clerk (Former Employee), winnipeg, mbJuly 23, 2015
A typical work day involved prepping salads, sandwiches, subs, using industrial ovens to cook turkeys and chickens. use of deep fryers, cutting meats with slicer and tenting to customers. I learned to use the meat slicers and how to weigh meats and salads on a scale in grams and pounds. How to sanitize all cookware, ovens and deep fryers. Can't really say much about management because they hardly came around. My Co-workers were fun and knowledgeable and I appreciate the things they taught me in so little time. The hardest part of my job at Safeway was cleaning the deep fryer. I enjoyed working their because it was close to home.

Low hours, low pay, no reason to stay
Lower Management/Shipping and Receiving (Former Employee), Thunder Bay, ONJuly 18, 2015
Low hours, low pay, no reason to stay. Like many grocery/department stores they hire a bunch of part-time people to avoid paying benefits, to work 15 hours a week in four 4-hour shifts at all times of the day. Pay is lousy, you have to come in all the time for very little hours and it just is not a good place to work.

Deli Clerk (Former Employee), Vancouver, BCJuly 16, 2015
Safeway was my start up job. Deli work. It was a fun atmosphere, mostly young people. I worked there for a couple years but had to leave. Safeway is not a place that I would call my permanent job. As a start up job its amazing.
