Supervisor (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 26 June 2018
as it varies from franchise to franchise, management can vary however you can really benefit from having a good work life by just doing your job. the hardest part of the job is the monotony of cleaning the same things everyday. the best part is the people that you work with that can make a boring day, fun.
Stock Clerk (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 22 June 2018
Work consisted of bins, garbage and general stock labor. Management was an issue, I learned about the store code numbers for food, etc etc. The hardest part of the job had to have been all the constant weight.

I love my department and my team. We have a lot of fun and we also work very hard. We are always learning new technologies and taking on new projects, our skills are consistently being challenged and upgraded as we learn things.
Supervisor/Key Holder (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 12 June 2018
Boring work place people were nice but the place sucks.. little hours little pay no benefits I would not reccomend to someone who isn't a student this is a great place for someone who wants to get in and out quick not a long term employment field
Distribution Order Picker (Former Employee) – Aurora, ON – 29 May 2018
A typical day would involve me picking up a merchandise order from the order desk. I would then make my way to the parking spots of the Raymond Walkie. Before actually starting work management would inform the order picker of any special order to be aware of during the day or that might show up on our order list as an excess bulk pick. Management was always calm and relaxed. Hardest part of the job would have been if the bins needed replenishing. I would become a delay in completing the order. Once an order of about 150 and as far up as 450 pieces was complete they needed to be labeled and staged in the shipping department. Then the process is repeated.
Productive and organized, but also fun and energetic.
supervisor (Current Employee) – Trenton, ON – 26 May 2018
Bulk Barn has been my job for three years now, and it is a very good place to work. The management is great, job security is good too. I can only work weekends during school because of my extracurricular activities, but they are flexible and would let me do that. The work environment is friendly and fun, but they are also hard workers and prioritize their jobs. However, our store does not have enough workers to do a complete clean sometimes, so there isn't time for our extra cleaning that should be done weekly.
Cashier and Stocking (Current Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 23 May 2018
Work is very easy going! As long as you get your job done there isn't a problem. It's a very enjoyable job due to the fact that you go in everyday getting to see new products where you get to try them so you basically get to try new things everyday while getting paid.
Cashier/Stocker (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 18 May 2018
Job is fine for a teenagers first job but other than that it is a poor workspace.
-No Incentives to move up -Supervisors barely make more than minimum wage -Raises are never given -Hours are never guaranteed -Get called in on days you booked off -There is no full-time available, only given Part-Time employment -Poor managerial skills from all higher ups
Associate (Former Employee) – Fredericton, NB – 9 May 2018
The management at Bulk Barn was slightly unprofessional, but friendly. My hours were part-time, as I was only in high school, but the time off that I requested, I did receive. The work included mostly cleaning, cash, and more cleaning.
Supervisor/Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 6 May 2018
Great employer but they do not pay fairly. You have to do a lot of hard cleaning and work but everyone there will feel underpaid and underappreciated. But the staff are wonderful and they are flexible with schedules.
