If you work really hard it’s a good thing but at the same time it could leads to your downfall. Some managers will stop you from advancing from your current position because you make them looks good and they don’t want to lose you. Hard work is not appreciated at my location.
Pros
The benefits
Cons
Lazy and unappreciated managers

Strong union in place, workers safety is taken seriously, physically demanding job, new supervisors and bullies and harass workers, a lot of politics in place.

Metro is like scrooge ! They put everything in their pockets, and the less they can in yours even if they know full well that without you they would be going down the drain. You are a number to them, even if you are superman, they dont care. Unless you are wiling to lick their boots, then they will appreciate you a bit more but you still get over-used.
Pros
Not much
Cons
Everything

My opinion of Metro is greatly influenced by my feelings about the management team. The store manager is quite possibly the most unprofessional and unpleasant manager I have ever had in my 30 years of customer service. The job itself is fine, however, for a company that is seeing record profits during this pandemic, the wage scale and progression is pitiful. Metro is not even paying hazard pay at this point. Very grateful that we have a union. They work hard to get their members the most they can.
Pros
Unionized, pension plan, benefits
Cons
Wages, poor management

It is a brutal environment to work in as the union dictates to management. Union employees would 'stretch' the work day to provide overtime for its employees. Your employment status is dependant on how well you tow the union line even as a VP or lower. Here, the tail wags the dog.
Pros
A stop gap employment
Cons
Long hours

Décrète un lockout et coupe les assurances à ses employés. Absolument aucun respect pour les travailleurs, spécialement en temps de pandémie et prend les employés de bureau en otage pour effectuer le travail d'entrepôt.

I applied at the St Thomas ON location.Living close affords me the opportunity to cover for someone who calls out sick. I have a robust immune system able to cope in these pandemic times, but they are not hiring at the moment. I will keep trying.
Pros
I took course in flower arrangement, pharmacy assistant, worked front end but also fill vacations for fish, produce and bakery
Cons
I could not work grocery because it was at night

The work was fun, I always looked forward to go to work, but the pay was not good at all. I got minimum wage, and weekly cut of hours. After working there for so long at 2 different locations, with the permission of one of my staff pharmacists I used here as a reference and later found out that it was due to her giving me a bad reference that I did not get many jobs that I had interviews for. I had a great relationship with her at work, but I did not know she would bad mouth me saying she does not remember me working for that long period and gave a dishonest reference regarding me. I could have done a case on her for ruining my career for many years but I did not do that.
Pros
fun work place
Cons
back stabbing, bad mouthing, blaming

I had requested to move departments as I felt that I wasnt a better fit which led to my hours being cut from full time to four hours every two weeks. DO NOT WORK HERE

Most of the company staff is part time workers. The prospect for growth and development in such a company is very hard. I'd recommend metro as a part time job but you must find something full-time to be able to pay your bills efficiently. The working environment is a cordial one.
