Others employees great to work with.

Other employees are great to work with. Poor pay. Lower level managers do not possess the skills needed to deal with employees. Ex. Gossiping about employees, favoritism. Corporate will cut hours frequently and without notice. Expect to be off work for a week or longer after Christmas. If you have a problem Upper management with take days, weeks to address your issues.


Other employees good people to work with.


Poor pay, poorly managed.

Lack of communication from store managers and asms

If you get a good department manager you're good. The lack of communication from the higher ups makes the job hard. They make record profits but continually cut hours from depts.

Okay Job for students

Interview was through the phone. I was hired on the spot. Easy job but they dont train you so expect to learn everything on your own. Its also a very toxic work environment.

Mismanagement is the issue, not "people not wanting to work"

The management team at the location I worked at was the real downfall for employees. They keep you part time to avoid giving benefits, your hours go from 8 hours a week to 30 hours a week.The front end manager had 14 HR complaints and still somehow worked there. Employees work there self to the bone and aren't appreciated by higher ups.Departments have a cliché type vibe like it's high school while drama and toxic behaviour flows through the store.Not the right work environment if you want to take care of your mental health.


Small discount and snacks in the break room


Mismanagement by higher ups with no grasp on store realities.

The bad but for a starting career

It's not that bad but there is no help from. Management. Co-workers are fine but there is barely any conversation, which feels like a boring environment

Working for Loblaws has been a below average experience overall.

What is the best part of working at the company?Having direct access to new stock/groceries What is the most stressful part about working at the company?There is a lack of hours given to departments as well as a lack of understanding from upper management.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Heavily dependent on department manager and store manager. What is a typical day like for you at the company?Heavy work load and often working alone on shifts. This depends on your department- but ours- we were expected to complete many tasks with minimal assistance.

Productive and fun

I noticed that all workers have teamwork, I learned to operate different machine used in warehouse, organized my task, I respect my co workers belief from their culture, the hardest is lifting heavy products but I enjoyed working in this company.


Free barbecue, bread, coffee and personal safety gear

Decent workplace

Not the greatest experience. Staff is kind and had their minds on getting things done. Management and how things are organized will have you be expected to get things done with not enough time, and I was asked to give up breaks to get everything done.

It was the worst company I have EVER worked for. You are bullied daily and demeaned by Senior Leadership.

What is the best part of working at the company?Not a lot , you are bullied everyday when you come to work by senior management.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?The disrespect from you're boss. What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Nothing , it's extremally abusive.What is a typical day like for you at the company?Start work at 6:30 AM and you are instructed not to leave until after 6PM . The expectation is to work 6 days a weeks and if you don't ? senior leadership frowns on you while they work 5 days a week. Too different standard's

Like most retail places there is not enough hours, and no full time available work.

There is no job security at Loblaw. You are just a number, they will keep cutting your hours so shareholders get their massive bonuses. They do not offer full time employment so they will not have to pay benefits. To qualify for dental benefits you need to be employed for two years, and maintain 20 hours a week.




Constantly cutting hours

Garbage place to work

Horrible place to work. At no point in my employment did any of the full times care to chat with me and treated me like garbage due to being a mixed breed human.

Flexible, welcoming place to work

Loblaw may not always have the best reputation, but depending where you're working for them, does have it's upsides. I enjoyed my time working for Loblaw, they are flexible with scheduling, most management is easy going, and easy to get along with.

Do not work here! stay away!

This is the worst job I ever had. Expectations are unreachable and they treat you like dirt. I would give it 0 if I could. Don;'t work here if you don't really need to.




not health and safety at all
