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

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

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.

District and area manager don’t help trying to solve conflicts between staff. Always side with the manager and even the HR will not help. Toxic work environment especially if the manager is micromanaging everything and very nosy about even personal life matters.
Pros
Benefits, vacation and sick days
Cons
You’re on your own if you get into a conflict with your manager. Long hours

A fast pace paced environment environment. Friendly staff. Management is good. Few shifts. Good benefits if you are a regular employee. Unionized. Sometimes customers are so demanding and feeling entitled that’s why an employee should have long patience.

Depending on the day (if we are receiving a shipment or not) the workload could be very demanding or very relaxed with little to do.
As my first job it has taught me the required skills to eventually get a full time job in my field of study.

The hours are different week to week so it is hard to plan last minute events (unless you take the day off 2 weeks before).
Co-workers are overall nice with a few exceptions.


Overall great first job for high-school/college.
Pros
Good part-time highschool/college/university job.
Cons
Very inconsistent hours.

Impossible to earn a living with inconsistent hours. Cannot pay the bills. Long term employees not valued or supported or guaranteed even minimal hours.

Metro is a good place to work for laborers and they are having flexible timings. the good thing is they provide break times with pay for 1 hour per shift.

I was a cashier for a year at Metro. The working environment was fairly clean, shelves was stocked to the capacity. Customers are always happy with their customer service experience. The customer always leave the store with a huge smile on their face. The staff are always happy with their shifts.There is also no benefits for working there...that's a downer.
