productive place to work at and very fast paced
Food prep/Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  sobeys forest-lawn Calgary alberta19 July 2014
a typical day at work?
very busy environment lots to do.

what i learned was time management,excellent customer service
inventory.

management is not ok but could be better and more outgoing

co workers are very nice and have a great positive attitude and out always ready to do their best effort.

the hardest part of the job is closing lots to clean up lots of food to prep.

the best part of the job is after 7 o'clock get paid an extra dollar for every hour worked.
Pros
good pay
Cons
very hardworking job

Alright
Cashier (Former Employee) –  Dunnville, ON19 November 2017
Work place was alright. The manager is racist towards the employees. Alot of drama in this work place. Would not recommend this for a place of work but would for a store itself.

Constant Churn in Strategy and restructuring
Senior Director Merch Bakery (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON14 November 2017
Love the potential of the company but it no longer loves you back (too large of a company now- textbook HR department that is predatory).
They always had the right cast but the wrong script.
I shudder when I think of the current talent they are restructuring out of and who they are replacing them with.
Disloyal to legacy employees who literally built them.
They have become the typical cold faceless corporate monolith with an artificial engagement culture and no real P2P love for each other.
Current restructuring will end and another will begin in 18 months.
People that work in the retail stores are inundated with redundant rules and protocols they must follow that directly interfere with running a food store. This happens when you eliminate true subject matter experts and replace them with decorative wall degrees.
Elimination of independent thinkers and promotion of robotic yes men will produce typical results.
They have failed to create an identity for themselves in the customers eye and usually default to the road easiest travelled, copying trends and products that perceived industry leaders implement.
They have eliminated or diminished the true leaders they have, and replaced them with cheerleaders that are ill advised by incompetent but well placed individuals that should have been purged years ago.
BOD is too cautious and conservative to take the necessary steps to change this historic company, I cant help but imagine that it will be sold off to a European or American retailer within the next 5 years.
Pros
Wonderful History but poorly leveraged
Cons
Eastern Canadian Company run by people who want it to be Loblaws
