Liked the job, hated the pay
Produce Clerk (Part-time) (Current Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 5 September 2017
I worked in the produce department, so experiences may vary.
I enjoyed the people I worked with, made the days go smoothly and we were very productive.
Just my main gripe with the place is the pay, there is no performance bonus or any significant pay bumps. In the union booklet, available publicly, you get a raise every 520 hours of work.... a 10 cent raise. I calculated if you worked FT 40 hours a week it would take close to 3 months to get the 10 cent raise, so it would take years to earn any liveable income, unless you live with your parents with no rent or something.
Because of this I honestly had to find other work as I couldn't make enough to pay rent and bills working 40 hours almost every week.
Just know going into this job, you get no bump from previous experience, everyone starts the same.
This turned into a rant, sorry about that... It just really irritates me.
Nice people to work with.
The pay raise system is a slap to the face.
