Cashier/Stock (Former Employee) – Midland, ON – 5 December 2018
I worked there long enough to make some good friends along the way, however it does come with it's downsides. I did enjoy the opportunity I had to work there, but hours were too easily cut and really brought it down.
Supervisory role (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 20 November 2018
The people that I worked with were the best bunch of youngsters I had the privledge to work with :) My customers were not always the best but for the most part. They were a great bunch of people to see everyday :)
Most days at Bulk Barn are enjoyable. The job is entertaining and most coworkers are easy to get along with. However, the management and corporate level of this company are not on the same page. Corporate is often making decisions that would be better off if left to the store managers who understand the situations better. Putting that aside, the salary is definitely lower than it should be. I understand retail positions are not exactly "high skilled" but I believe that the work merits an extra dollar per hour on top of minimum wage at least. Working at Bulk Barn is not a robotic process like scanning bar codes at a grocery store. There are important things we do as employees that are surely above our pay grade, but corporate is only concerned with profit margins and not employee relations. Overall this is a place for a part time job during the school year and maybe full time in the summer, not a career.

Supervisor (Current Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – 24 October 2018
Bulk barn was a great place to work when I was in high school as they attained to my hours and needs. However as I got older I began to realize the many management issues they had, as well 0 - no benefits. We got absolutely nothing there, and as a supervisor I did way more than regular staff, and was only payed 50 cents more an hour. Our store had nothing more than a supervisor, there was no active manager and lead to many disputes. Good for the first little bit, but very unorganized
good hours, hours you wanted/needed were given to you
what I like about my job, I enjoy helping customers when they leave knowing the had good customer service the staff I work with is nice I can work without supervision, work well with others do a variety of jobs, from helping customers to putting out stock and keeping the store looking nice. mornings making sure the store looks nice for customers greeting them asking if they need help finding something Letting them know of any specials,
Cashier (Former Employee) – Oromocto, NB – 16 September 2018
You learn a lot while working here, easy work while you're still working hard. Learning how to do everything is easy to pick up. The hardest part about this job is learning how to do cash while first starting off as it is scary and overwhelming at first but its easy to overcome with practice. This job helped boost my confidence and allowed me to be less shy, you get to interact with the people in your community and talk to the sweet people that come in (except for the few that aren't so sweet). Overall, I highly recommend this jobs especially if you're in school because it works around schedules easily.
