Met new people.

Need to hire qualified managers! As they do not know to manage or train new employees.. if your not Asian you will be treated differently.. this is just extra money not career.

Pros

Close to home

Cons

Long hours

1st yr they opened great

when the first opened great place. within the second year unfortunately there was a lot of racism and discrimination. As this SHOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED. no one should EVER be discriminated base on there culture and skin color.!!!

Pay some bills

Show up, do your job and get the money. Poor (micromanagement) for some issues. However inexistent management for other tasks and procedures: do it by yourself, do not make overtime and get it done

Good Place to start for students.

Hours and pay are good for students. Good place to get experience but not a place to stay for long. Other reviews are wrong about management. Management is fine, just the CEO are very toxic, don't do anything, just comes yell at us on his way out for a smoke break.

Unfair

Pretty unfair , aren’t reasonable people , worked as a deli worker and it’s kinda sad. Making us vacuum seal old smoked beef. Literally inedible, when it came to management it was terrible . They want studf done when there is literally Nothing else to do. If you’re a student I Wouldn’t recommend working here. As taking days off can lead you to being terminated unfairly . They don’t care about you. Kinda sad.

Pros

Decent hours

Cons

You do more then you get paid

Horrible place

Terrible place to work. You get treated like dirt and are expected to work 6 days a week and 12 hours a day. You get put down the manager mostly so not speak English and the place is dirty

Easy job

The work is super easy, the cleaning crew is very friendly and easy to get along with. Some of the cashiers are nice but majority of the managers are not nice, they don't treat you like you matter, you are just there to clean.

Pros

Very easy

Cons

Managers treat you like your beneath them

It sucks

It's too busy, they don't hire enough cashiers so you're working non stop with toxic rude customers.. you work 10 hour shifts with one half hour break and a 15..

Busy workplace

If you're looking for something high paced, Nations is the place for you. It is a very busy store with plenty to be done. There is a lot of interaction with customers.

Not recommended

I met a lot of nice people of different race in this place but some supervisors are mean and lazy. It’s a good place to do part-time but a lot of people quit this place after a while and nobody last in this place mostly because of the salary or the people managing the place.

Secure job with bad pay

If you new here in Canada, this may be a good job you are looking for, easy to start and stay. If you are looking for your success in your career, go find another job.

Hostile Work Environment Including Sexist Management

I wouldn't recommend anyone working here! Management was unqualified and would give family and friends raises even if they were undeserving. Also, the staff is racist and sexist.

Terrible management

Have to basically beg for your pay and hope the hours are correct and hope they dont decide to cut your position and constantly filthy cockroaches are found at your work station

Management talks down to employees while wanting them to work like robots

Management is so bad and does not care about the welfare of its employees, during a 10 hour shift you get one 30 minute break (two hours into your shift) and one 15 minute (two hours after your first one ends).. they'll change your schedule without notifying you as well as if you change your availability they agree and a month later will say you never wrote them a new letter.. my manager is the reason I'm leaving, we've gone through 3 managers in the time I've been here ( a year and a half) because how bad the workplace is.. other fellow cashiers are great, it's all management..

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Long shifts

Just a regular grocery store job

Nations Fresh Foods isn't anything special nor anything terrible. The management needs a little work but other than that it's an okay place to work. Would recommend for a student.
