Cashier (Former Employee) – Maple Ridge, BC – 12 October 2017
The orderliness of a chain grocery store, but everything is a little more warm and nice, rather than cold and fluorescent. Part time is impossibly part-time (4 hour shifts almost always) but shift changes and availability changes are never a problem.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Nanaimo, BC – 12 October 2017
This is a company who really cares for itself and it's employees, they provide excellent training and they really reward you for it by being forgiving and understanding. Everyone comes together as a team to play their part.
Stock person/First Aid attendant (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 15 August 2017
A good job while one is in school. Scheduling can be quite flexible if needed. Everyone is very friendly. The primary focus is on customer service. My time at Thrifty Foods honed my customer service skills and was the building block upon which my service orientation is built. One downside to Thrifty Foods is that there is a company policy to not give formal references for employees seeking other employment.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Saanichton, BC – 1 August 2017
Within the business you find yourself doing the same thing every single shift.. if routine jobs work for you this is a great start but youre on your feet your entire shift so be sure to not use cheap shoes. save your back and feet!
wage increase every so many hours
most employees stay for a long time which leaves small possibilties of growth
Cake Decorater/Bakery Clerk (Former Employee) – North Vancouver, BC – 17 July 2017
Great people to work with among coworkers and excellent training programs. Difficult to advance and very little management cohesiveness. Management did not seem to value employees efforts or feedback. (a lot of people quit and transferred to competitors or were fired and replaced by inexperienced and temporary managers during my time there.)
Volunteer opportunities, training, coworkers, community service
Shift work, steady staff overturn, little management investment in staff directly

Material picker (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 24 June 2017
My day started at 6am and i worked till 12pm. I picked up boxes which when combined becomes an order. I used to drive the electric pallet jack and stack up the boxes. In the end was packing the order with a sheet and staging the pallet in the correct location.

thrifty foods is a great place to work at customers and staff are always happy and they will go out of their way to help you out the hardest thing to do is trying to remembering the codes for each item
Grocery Clerk (Former Employee) – Duncan, BC – 8 June 2017
Horrible management. Don't appreciate the employees. Feel used/worthless. No freedom to say if you like, or dislike something. Overall, Beverly Corners Thriftys is not a good employer. Especially the the grocery department.
Deli Clerk (Former Employee) – Campbell River, BC – 4 May 2017
Greeting and helping customers, cleaning and organizing the store. Learned how to make different salads and how to properly handle knives. Management was great. Great grocery store to work at. Feel like a family.
Deli Clerk (Former Employee) – Courtenay, BC – 3 May 2017
I worked for thrifty foods in the Deli for 4 years. It was great. Managers were friendly and helpful, good work/life balance. Was fairly easy to book days off. Always work to be done, so time goes by fast.
