Head Stock Position (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 17 April 2018
Come in everyday, get floats ready and begin putting stock away as soon as it arrived. Help customers on the floor when needed with nutrition facts or helping find products. Good workplace culture, job was only difficult if the store was short staffed and an overall enjoyable work environment.

* A typical day at the 'Barn includes stocking the shelves with product from the back. This includes filling the bins, tubs, totes, honey tanks. * Cash rotation schedule, so that you are not stuck on cash for the rest of your life. * Everyone has a part in maintaining the cleanliness of the store. * If you're surrounded by good management, this job is amazing. * Most enjoyable part? It becomes your little family away from home.
Stock Supervisor & Janitor (Former Employee) – Kamloops, BC – 10 April 2018
I enjoyed my time with them. Learned allot and definitely had allot of fun. I learned how to look after other staff members that were below, made sure they would get things done. Learned how to be a Janitor. The Hardest part of the job was the communication from the Manager and 2/3 Supervisors. Never told me how or what I was doing wrong until 1-2 weeks later or hearing about it from another staff member.The most enjoyable part of the job was whenever I was working with 1/3 supervisors. we would get allot done but also had allot of fun, scaring each other, making fun of each other, and trying to take pot shots at each other.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Sydney, NS – 21 March 2018
A typical day at work for a cashier would involve cleaning, more so than handling money, it was always very busy during the holiday season.
I learned about a variety of health foods as well as diet restrictions and gluten-intolerance.
Management was sadly all over the place and the main reason i left. after this particular location went corporate-owned the management went down hill and the supervisors would constantly put on a show for our district manager. a lot of drama and stress for an otherwise rewarding job.
Hardest part of the job initially was memorizing all of the codes designated to every bulk item, you eventually get the hang of it.
Most enjoyable part of the job: Learning about health foods and the seasonal candy section.
clean working environment
Worked for the company for 4+ years with no advancement opportunities

Cashier (Current Employee) – Prince Albert, SK – 15 March 2018
Bulk Barn is a smaller business in Prince Albert, so it demands more from the employee. I have gained valuable experience with customer service. The people I work with are sometimes helpful, and I enjoy working with some of the employees. It makes working there easier.
Stock clerk (Current Employee) – edm.ab – 12 March 2018
Basically the bulk section of Superstore, they have a lot more selection though and you don't have to mark down what you bought on a slip. The staff always know what they item you bought is and are very knowledgeable when asked about their products.

My employment at Bulk Bark was very enjoyable thanks to interesting interactions with customers. Every day offered a variety of challenges. My main task was to stock and organize the backroom but any chance to assist customers I would jump at the opportunity to help.
