Stocker in Laval, QC
on 13 May 2022
Fun workplace but gets hectic/stressful during busy hours
Fun workplace with fun coworkers. Managers vary as some are nice and down to earth while others couldn’t care less about your personal needs. Pay is fair while the workload seems a bit on the higher side as they expect a lot from their workers. They seek perfection and quality workers.
Customer Service and Seasonal Worker in Brossard, QC
on 12 May 2022
Where to begin?
I have been paid as a technician the minimum wage before this and I would still prefer to work there as opposed to Costco. Ableism is the main reason I was let go, they didn’t like that I wasn’t an extroverted employee, management is also unable/unwilling to implement a system where employees can put complaints against clients who verbally abuse or even hit them during the height of the Pandemic.
Bakery Assistant in Sherwood Park, AB
on 12 May 2022
Productive and Fast paced
Flexible schedule, decent enough pay and hours. Within the Bakery there is an unfortunate standard of relying too much on the more productive workers instead of equalizing out the workload so it becomes a quick lesson in doing just the bare minimum unless you want to be buried alive with extra work.Evening shifts are brutal. A perpetual balancing act of completing wrapping (that should of been finished way earlier in the day) while trying to have enough time to clean.
Food Counter Attendant in Mississauga, ON
on 7 May 2022
Productive and fun workplace
Very fast pace environment. Good pay, hours, and benefits. Employees are hard workers and nice to work with. Time pass by too fast because of how busy it gets.
Part-time employee in Mississauga, ON
on 6 May 2022
Good place to work but very fast pace
Very fast pace environment with constant scrutiny from manager. Good pay, good hours depending on location and what department you work in. If in merchandise department good physical health is required, lots of heavy lifting.
