Okay place

Normal store environnement. Busy on Thursday and weekends. Normal minimum wage paying job. Lots of walking and back and forth. Nothing special. Nice coworkers.

Not worth the time

Being a pharmacy assistant requires more of a technical know-how than the pay reflects, even with over 7 years experience, you make the same as a cashier. Schedules are not consistent and most times it is sent out on the Friday before the next week. My coworkers were very pleasant which was the best part of the job.

Easy work, uneasy environment.

Starting hourly rate/method to get raises turned out to be different than what was told in interview. Head grocery manager was easy to deal with and flexible with hours, everyone else was unorganized and took pride in talking about others. No room for advancement. Hard work goes unnoticed on night shift.

Pros

Flexibility in shifts/hours

Cons

Low pay/no raises, Unorganized management, Gossip

Fast paced, good starter job

Very fast paced and highly stressful at times. Have to be prepared to deal with the "discount" shoppers, who can make life miserable. Company is unionized, which is unfortunate, as the union doesn't care about the workers.

Fun place to work

Wouldn't recommend to anyone who's trying to build a actual career. Most of the workers consist of high school kids. None the less easy work, accommodate to schedule.

Pros

Easy job

Cons

No future

Abusive owners, Loblaws does not care

Met some great co workers and customers. Large work load with little pay. Owners have little to no people skills and Loblaws franchise program is a joke. Very toxic environment and zero support from head office. If you speak up they will terminate you.

It was a decent place to start out at. Lacks advancement opportunities, but a good first job. Managers did what they can within their means to make it a decent place to work.

Pros

Cons

Interesting workplace

Fun place to work at with people around my age, definitely good as a starting job. I would honestly recommend it to any student looking to make a little extra money throughout the year.

Easy going

No frills was a easy going workplace, I usually work alone in dairy section but my coworker were nice and would ask if I needed a help, everyone's in this work were pretty nice

Stressful

The management expects certain employees to take more responsibilities than others to pick up the slack. However you don’t get additional pay or hours

Pretty easy and relaxed

Working here was pretty easy as your just scanning items and processing transactions. Hours are okay bit then best but not much I can do about it as I finish the work pretty fast and have no need to stay longer

Great co-workers

I loved the atmosphere and loved interacting with customers. Overall I enjoyed working at No Frills. If I could work there again I would. It is a very clean and organized store. I would recommend anyone looking for a job, they need to apply. You are also paid weekly.

Easy place to work at

Great first job. My superiors always are understanding and the shifts are never too long. A little bit stressful to deal with customers though. Would recommend to any teen to apply here.

Productive Workplace & Fast-Paced

I find No Frills a great place to work if you are just entering the work force (high school or equivalent) or need a part-time flexible job. It is fast-paced but also slow at times, depending on the time of day. Minimum wage is mostly what you'll earn for income, but the longer you stay the more hours you will get. Overall, a good place to work for part-time!

Pros

15 minute breaks are paid for, 10% benefit discount, unionized company

Cons

On feet all day, shorter hours if newbie, minimum wage (can't compete with cost of living)

No Frills

I am just a cashier but I have been there almost five years and got a good look into every department. Being a cashier is the worst of no frills due to customers and the area but the co workers are amazing and management is pretty accommodating to human understanding.

Pros

10% discount on Saturdays for employees

Cons

The customers
