Commis (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 6 August 2018
Typical day consist of baking and re-stocking. They do not teach you anything about safety measures. Management was okay but didn't take much into consideration my work hours; example: put me on the schedule when they knew I had school and didn't give me enough hours. Couldn't speak English at all in the work place. Little to no diversity in employees. Hardest part: staying in the freezer for too long. Enjoyable part: baking and speaking to customers. But I think its different for every store.
Produce Clerk (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 7 July 2018
Managed poorly, no raises. People called in sick all the time because they disliked working for the company. As a part-time employee I was working 40 hours a week for years and still getting no benefits.
Shelves stocker (Former Employee) – Ponoka, AB – 21 June 2018
All the managers are rude and expect you to do everything to absolute perfection and were often threatening employees with being fired. The only good side was being able to ocattionally socialize with other workers until they told us wed be fired if found talking to other coworkers often.
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Coboconk, ON – 14 June 2018
I very much enjoyed my years with IGA. They offered much in the way of continuous learning and it was an excellent experience. The one downside was that it was a family owned business so there wasn't a lot of opportunity for advancement.
Produce Associate (Former Employee) – Provost, AB – 11 June 2018
It was okay, but not what I was expecting. the head lady in my department was basically like a switch; One moment she was happy, and the next, she was angry. I got fed up with it, and the fact I wasn't put in the position I wanted was also a big let down.
It's ok , definitely wouldn't stay forever good first job

Caissière, service à la clientèle (Former Employee) – Bromptonville, QC – 30 May 2018
J'ai appris à bien communiquer avec les clients et gérer les mécontant. Le plus difficile était de rester pendant des longues heures debout sans bouger. Le plus agréable était le sourir des collègues de travaille.
Food Service Worker (Former Employee) – Coquitlam, BC – 27 May 2018
The hours were long and hard but the management was very understanding and helpful while managing a work life balance. I was able to request one shift a week because of school and was granted that with a smile. Yet that one shift a week was a 2-10:30pm shift which takes up most of my day.
