High energy and fast paced, very friendly
Service Clerk (Current Employee), Vancouver, BCSeptember 2, 2013
Pros: health and dental benefits and job security
Cons: union fees
I learned much about foods internationally with over 100 different products to relay to customers and nutritional facts about local products of almost 30 products.

The co-workers I work with are very friendly, some I have become friends since I started working there. I have made many friends outside of the country through working here as well.

I would – more... say the hardest part of this job would be trying to serve the customers as best as I could while juggling about 3-4 other duties.

The most enjoyable part of this job is that we get to sample new products to relay our experience to our customers. We also have the choice of pairing certain foods when we sample them to customers to enhance our ability to upsale products. – less

Productive and fun workplace

Pros: meeting new people
Cons: too many shifts
I thought I had a great experience, I would go into work and immediately be greeted by the staff and management. The management was superb and the staff were very hard working. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting and helping new people find what they needed most

An enigma
Floral Helper (Former Employee), Vancouver, BCDecember 29, 2012
Pros: beautiful environment, access to exotic groceries.
Cons: fragmented, ethically flawed management.
Working for Urban Fare was like a dream, very surreal, shiny, polished and fast paced. I really enjoyed my experience though most of the people in my department including the Manger were tough to read, and therefore not always easy to communicate with. I was sad to leave due to an injury, but opportunities for advancement seemed to be mainly driven – more... by favouritism if my observations were anything to go by. I would go back with enthusiasm but no expectations for a long term future with the company, though there are great benefits to be had for the higher grid employees and management. Perfect job for a young person, a great place to begin a career. – less
