flexible hours, nice people
meal consultant (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB3 December 2018
The boss was nice but he is kind of sexist so he definitely prefers men. He will hire people and ignore the rest of his staff and only gives 1-4 shifts a week at 3 hours each. when you ask for more shifts you will not get them. The other employees are for the most part funny you just can not be sensitive to darker humor. Over all would recommend this place if you don't need a lot of hours, don't mind being cold and need a good reference after.
Pros
flexible hours, nice people
Cons
sexist, not a lot of hours

Good place to work but has it’s downfalls
Meal Advisor (Former Employee) –  Ontario12 November 2018
Working at M&M has been a very good experience. Gaining sales experience and product knowledge. There is a lot of sales pushing on the corporate side with minimal reward. It is a minimum wage job after all. The amount of information you are expected to know (with minimal training) is ridiculous for the paycheque. Not to mention; working in the freezer is less then desirable. Order days are a complete joke. Often there is not enough staff so there is one person to receive a $40,000 order of frozen food. Time off is always challenged and you are expected to work all weekends. Even when a manager agrees to giving you a weekend off, you’ll be scheduled.
Pros
Short hours and not many rules
Cons
Minimal pay with minimal sales incentives and having to work in the freezer

Great coworkers, lagging on corporate behalf
Meal Advisor/Keyholder (Former Employee) –  St. Catharines, ON11 November 2018
the individual stores are absolutely amazing to work at, all of my coworkers have been more than great. the only issue i had was the rebranding that head office was doing, i understand that the business has to grow, but the changes were too many, too quickly and it was hard for the customers as well as employees to adjust to in such a quick time with no warning as to what was happening when or if it would actually happen at all or 8 weeks later
Pros
coworkers
Cons
head office changes

Meeting customers and assisting them to find products that they needed or were not sure how to prepare was enjoyable.
Pros
Flexible Hours
Cons
Never having enough product for an entire flyer

Not good
Meal Advisor (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB11 August 2018
Started as a corporate store and the manager was good. It was sold to a franchisee and we lost all our time. Then the new owners were not very good, you had to be constantly pushing at the till for the product of the month, instore specials and anything else! You get paid minimum wage and there are times you don't get a break. It is not a job I would recommend!
Pros
15% discount
Cons
long hours no breaks

Good Starter
Product Consultant (Former Employee) –  Scarborough, ON2 August 2018
I learned a lot about P.O.S system and Interac and more technical aspects of businesses. This includes handling cash and being a cashier. One of the most valuable part of the job was gaining experience in the field of customer service and consultation.
Pros
incentives for upselling
Cons
freezer work was rough but enjoyable

good times, friendly co-workers, easy place.
Stocker (Former Employee) –  Burlington, ON1 July 2018
a typical day was making sure a lot of the merchandise was out so the customers saw what they wanted to order.
where i was working the manager was very friendly and kind. so were the other co-workers.
the only not so good part was ...
the freezer was as in its name was FREEZING. when you had to get a delivery and be in there for an hour its a tight and inclosed place where you must be very careful not to get stuck or panic.
Pros
friendly co-workers.

eh, okay but not so great
Meal Advisor (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB21 June 2018
the staff are rude a lot of the time, when you start the job. there is one lady in particular who is a total snot. you cannot seem to do anything right. and ever since the US owners took over the store, the hours are awful and the food has gotten slightly worse. it is hard to keep up with the demand that they want/ "need" you to sell.

Awesome first job, grateful for the franchisee to hire me
Meal Advisor (Current Employee) –  White Rock, BC1 April 2018
Working at M&M Food Market is great. I have gained a lot of experience in a retail environment. I have had a number of difficult customers, and have learnt how to come up with the best solution. If you work at M&M Food Market, you must be able to work in a freezer, clean, and complete tasks that involve organization.
Pros
Employee Discount
Cons
Boring at times

This job was only temporary/seasonal during the Christmas season. I spent my day receiving and counting inventory in a freezer environment. I enjoyed this environment as I enjoy keeping inventory in order.

Meal Advisor (Former Employee) –  Richmond, BC14 March 2018
The work-load at the store is very manageable and the team at the Richmond store is amazing to work with. The owners are great and will support you in learning and empower you to do as much as possible independently.
