Bakery Packager in Edmonton, AB
on 10 February 2020
Bakery packager
I worked as a packager in the bakery department for 2 years! I worked above and beyond and I never felt appreciated. It's an ok place to work if you dont have issues with anyone. The problem I had was with management and HR not dealing with any issues that I arose to them. Lots of my coworkers didnt speak English and I felt excluded. In there policy it states English only but that rule is never followed. It is a very clique place and lots of rumors get spread. The managers are the worst for gossiping. It's a very toxic environment and I took work home with me.

Positives and Negatives
I worked there for 6 years. The job itself is very simple and easy to do, but you have no job advancement and its hard to change departments if you are not favoured by the managers. My manager had unrealistic high expectations and ask for us to do extra tasks that are not meant for our job descriptions. The cons are the work environment is no different than a high school clique. A crazy amount of work gossiping environment between employees and managers. Lack of professionalism. No employee discounts. No work-life-balance. Management was not organized and they do not care about you (or put any consideration). Favoritism is very high with managers. They get mad if you are sick and had to take a day off. They don't balance the schedule between their employees at all when they switch between nights and days. No support from management at all. The positives are the job is easy enough to do (to a certain point) and you get free lunches. You get yearly bonuses and the pay is decent enough. The Christmas Parties were fun.

Fairly good work environment, pay/advancement not adequate.
- free lunches were an awesome bonus, although i heard many people complain about the repetitive sandwiches i was happy to simply save on groceries for myself. staff should be able to bring food home, the organic & non-perishable waste in this store is enormous. - i worked in the cafe which was always busy, half the job was telling people to wait in the surrounding area for a seat. overall great experience in that section of the store (jess & bettina are awesome!!) with the chance to work in other departments for a few hours, so you really get to know everyone in each department. - workdays are long with almost no room for advancement or raises. solid workweek provided for full-time, i appreciated the hours. year-end bonus is the best ive ever seen for a position like this & honestly made working there worth it. - there is definitely a divide between the italian-speaking coworkers and the english-speakers, if you can get over that you'll be fine. everyone is friendly but i found people wanted to make a big deal of this (doesn't matter, just mind your business and be friendly).

No growth no loyalty no respect.
Management is horrible at this place. And the owner is just as bad. You can work harder than anyone, and still go nowhere. And they contradict everything they say. I worked there for 8 years, worked as hard as I could and went no where I had to beg for a raise every time
