Bullied by management - treated like a slave

No room for advancing. Took all the blame for the stores problems. Was their emotional punching bag. Being a cashier was better than working in stock.

It was a decent place

I was working there during the start of covid and I had to ensure the number of people entering and leaving fell under government requirements. I got along well with most of the staff, as we were all close in age.


Good co-workers


Not the best hours

Good opportunity to gain experience

It's a good place to learn and a place with very kind people. Everybody is able to help you and to teach how to do correctly your work. It's a very demanding job but it's good

The company has potential but fails miserably at executing anything

What is the best part of working at the company?A lot of people are great to work with. Management tends to keep angry white males who should have been fired years ago. Bad morale and terrible atmosphere. What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Management who don’t care. The mighty $$ is all that mattersWhat is the work environment and culture like at the company?Not good People are leaving big time because poor managers who aren’t trained to be managers of people just managers who make schedules What is a typical day like for you at the company?Put n a lot of effort with very little acknowledgment

Terrible company to work for

Only family and favorites get promoted. Lazy workers are excused while hard workers have extra work put upon them. Management treat employees with zero respect and there is no life balance. Part timers get full-time hours at part time pay with no hope of being awarded full-time. This company sucks your soul, it's very common for people to go on stress leave. Management jokes and has coffee with the union reps. Total joke. Worst place to work.




Decent benefits for PT with enough hours

Fun work environment, negative experience with management

The job was straightforward and easy. The hardest part of the job was dealing with management. I felt that I wasn't taken seriously by most of the managers, most likely due to the fact that I am a high school student. My direct manager would always schedule me long hours (upwards of 25 hours/week), despite the fact that I requested fewer hrs/week. A lot of my coworkers, I had a very positive experience with. They were all very friendly and fun to be around except for a select few that had taken an immediate dislike to me. Most of the employees were also students who cared very little for the job so they would often call in just before a shift leaving their shift for the day unfilled. This was very inconvienent but was always sorted out.


Nice coworkers, easy job, quick opens/closes.


Difficult work/school balance, few rude coworkers, irresponsible and negligent management.

At Fortinos, getting your foot in the door at the produce section is a great starting point. It's like a friendly introduction to the world of fresh food. This role teaches you how to handle fruits and veggies, help customers, and keep everything in order. The company values its employees and offers training, so you can grow with them. Starting in the produce section is more than a job; it's a simple way to begin your career in the grocery world. You'll find opportunities to learn, grow, and be part of a customer-focused team.

near min wage job

I mean it's working as a stock broker, near min wage, they don't care about you as an employee. Please union, get union, accept union, because union is love, union is life.

Overworked, underpaid, deceitful

I was given manager duties, decorator duties as a bakery clerk, full time hours as a part timer with no benefits. I was never late, never called in. They would give me extra tasks, I would complete them and exceed expectations. Asked multiple managers for a raise, always got a half-a** answer giving me hope and never any follow up. They wanted me to work overnight decorator for 2 of the busiest nights of the week for only $1 more than minimum wage. As a part-time student I struggled to get time off and was forced to work 3/4 days a week and told that less ‘wasn’t allowed’ despite other workers only working 2 days. They will take advantage of you. Over work you, and underpay you. After working their for 2 years, I had only gotten a 15 cent union raise. They don’t care about you’re livelihood/well-being. There is no discount or free food. Something was always malfunctioning (fridge warm, sink leaking) or we didn’t have it in stock (management didn’t order enough of it) Fortinos is a huge business that treats their workers as if they are broke and makes them deal with it.


Made friends with coworkers because we are all women


Overworked & Underpaid, Disrespectful management

I recently had the pleasure of experiencing [product/service/event], and I must say, it exceeded all my expectations. From the moment I walked in, I was greeted with warmth and professionalism that set the tone for the entire experience.

Awful management

The people make this job. I have some of the most amazing coworkers which comprise of teenagers my age and some tolerable old people (20+ yo). Management expects too much and constantly decreases hours while expecting more work for the same pay. Hardest part of this job is to not end up with your brains splattered on the wall after talking to an ASM.


Light workload sometimes


Everything else

productive workplace

it's a good place to start from. You learn a lot from communicating with people on a daily basis. The staff are friendly and most customers know what they need and respect employees.
