Scare-tactics, Nitpicking and Micro-management thought to be good
Stock (Current Employee) – Red Deer – 24 April 2014
a typical day at Bulk Barn would be go in scared to death to talk to the supervisors. no guidance whatsoever, very little training, an abundance of nit-picking and the supervisors belittling any new meat to look proper in front of the store owners. the store owners would side with the supervisors to make face. LOADS of heavy lifting if your the only guy working any shift. The most enjoyable part of the job is the customers. I learned to never ask the supervisor anything.
Long hours. Psychotic, dysfunctional feminist supervisors. Low pay. Ripped me off a few days of work on payday.

Multiple task performed every shift. Enjoyable. I did heavy lifting of stock items such as sugars, flours, grain,etc. and chocolate, and pet food too. Stocking is a good job, and if working with the right person, can be more efficient and fun as well. While operating the cash register, one also does smaller side jobs, such as straightening and facing products. Memorizing the product codes is a fun challenge, and makes one feel proud when you get through a long order without needing to use the scroll to find a number.
