Barista Job

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Typical i would make same drinks over and over again and it is either super busy or super dead. Management doesn't want you to do nothing even if there are no customers.

Hours are awful

Even with open availability I was only working 2 or 3 days a week, no where near enough hours so I chose to get another job, after that my hours tanked it was almost like they were punishing me for taking another job. It was the same when I would take time off. The following week I would only have one maybe 2 shifts.

Pros

Awesome co-workers

Cons

Low hours, pay, management

Never work at Longos! Not a good place to work.

I used to work there and quit i because I really started to hate it there. The managers are only nice to you when you do them "favors" then in return they mistreat you. I don't want my niece working there. EVER.

Pros

Discount

Cons

Long hours

Good connections with fellow staff, poor management and executive team

Overall at Longo's you can expect to be treated decently. Team members are especially kind and supportive of one another. Management leaves more to be desired. The company is desperate for managers, so they are often inexperienced or unqualified. As well the quality of workplace is heavily dependent on the quality of your manager; bad manager, bad work environment.Their pay is not very competitive. They strive very hard to limit the amount of full time staff, and fill the ranks with part-timers they can pay less, and not give benefits to. I and many others, work full time hours but are "part-timers" that receive no benefits.In terms of workhours, the company has been cutting dramatically in the last few months. If you are a part timer, some get full time hours (like myself) and some only 10 per week. If you are an hourly full time worker, don't expect get more than 37 hours a week. If you are a salary worker, you will need to work 48+ hours a week to keep your department running. Store managers are expected to work over 50 hours a week.In the end, I would say this about Longo's: I used to recommend it as a place to work, now I tell people to look elsewhere.

Pros

Typically positive and friendly experience with colleagues

Cons

Executive team disconnected from their staff

Productive and outgoing place to work if you like dealing with people

I worked at longos for a year, I left because of personal reason but I can honestly say that the team member at liberty village Toronto is literally the best. Customer service manage and assistant managers treat you like family and they stick up for you . Just do what your suppose to do and say hi to everyone and you will be just fine !

Pros

GreT team members Free food sometimes lol

Cons

Standing all shift except for breaks
Was this review helpful?

okay place to work

management favourites employes, doesn't care about your availability will schedule you whatever works for them. if you are not one of the favourites they will not care about you and will always tell you that you are doing things wrong. if you are a new employee they will make you feel like an outsider. there is always drama that is happening. young teens are running the front end and don't care about anything. you get shorter breaks then normal if you work front end

Lovely people, lifelong friends

Great management, great people. Not much room for advancement as a part-timer and any "advancement" did not come with a pay raise which was ridiculous as many more duties were expected.

Overall a good place to work

I took orders from customers for their custom cakes, I baked and designed the cakes. I took care of cleaning my station and making sure everything is presented the right way to the customers. I enjoyed my time carrying out these tasks.

Longo's = WORST place to work - Full of Misogynist/Incompetent Managerss

As a 4th year University student I worked part-time at Longo's for 5 months and it was the worst experience I have ever had. I am a Law major and I hope one day to use my skills to help current employees find justice against the misogynist, incompetent and "creepy" managers they have working at all their stores. I would say 90% of the stores have these "type" of Managers after speaking with other employees. What is shocking is that they are never held accountable for their actions which clearly shows this is the culture of the company and it stems from the Head Office down. The CEO should be ashamed of himself for condoning the environment he has created, as it is not a healthy, equitable and fair environment. Nothing is done to address the abusive "ego" minded treatment towards employees; you have no choice but to quit or suffer. Fortunately I was able to quit and I found another job related to my field, however, I advise anyone with any sense of self respect to never even consider working at Longo's and for the women/young girls to find the courage to fight against the misogynistic attitudes of the men who should of not only been fired years ago, but charged with abuse and harassment. NOTE: during COVID it is even worse, they don't enforce staff to wear their masks and the Manager of my store would always wear it on his chin and mock those who were concerned about the protocols.

Pros

No Pros

Cons

Everything - incompetent Managers/staff and misogynist culture

Longos is a great place and you feel like a family member when working there

Working at longos has been an amazing experience, since I started I was welcomed in by all the friendly staff and the great customers. The job was always fun and it made you want to come into work.

Long hours, either super busy or super dead

Worked as a cashier for about half of a year. Most of the job was pretty straightforward and it was busy at peak times, especially since construction was happening in the area. The customers were some of the most entitled and rude people I have ever met, especially during the switchover to charging for plastic bags. People would throw a fit because of 20 cents of plastic bags on a 400 dollar order. My experience with my manager was pretty terrible, and the reason that I actually left the job was because I had a negative interaction with a customer despite maintaining my composure, and when she brought me into the office to talk and I explained what happened she told me that "You must have done something wrong, he is usually such a nice guy!" I understand that in front of the customer you have to act like they are not the jerk but in private I would have hoped that she would stand up for me and agree.

Pros

Management, no opportunity for advancement, super dead at times

The worst experience of my life

⏩⏩⏩I applied for Assistant Department Manager and they told me we need you to work first 3 month and then we'll see. 3 month already passed but they don't do anything even I asked them. Plus they told me you need to help other departments too, but after a month it became a habit for them and I have to work of 6 people! Their promises are empty,I applied initially as seafood department but ended up in meat department which I hated 1⃣ It's slavery and my assistant manager was extremely racist I have told to manager but no effect 2⃣ Plus Mobile phone they say it's not allowed but they(managers) using at work, same as eating, it's not allowed but they eat. If you are a manager or beautiful younge girl you are an exceptional 3⃣ Be prepared for hearing we are a family but they care you like sh**it They force you to do the trainings because store score has to grow, they only think about their own benefits. 4⃣ Be prepared to hear we care and give benefits such as insurance while they do something so you won't be eligible to get insurance.! They did it to me. 5⃣ Be prepared for hearing you are a team member but actually self benefits. 7⃣ be prepared for being spied even you go washroom by managers following you to count your minutes Long story short if you are looking for the following list: Disrespect Lie Racism Long hours No benefits Pretending Fake Shout Nepotism 👆👆👆👆👆👆👆👆👆 Longos is the best choice to go

Pros

Some nice coworkers if they are same postion level as you

Cons

Disrespect, Lie, Racism, Long hours, Pretending, Fake, Shout, Nepotism
