Lots of nosey and uneducated people to work for
Grocery Clerk (Former Employee) –  Stockyards Toronto, Ontario29 October 2018
Grocery department was a joke to work for. Manager and assistant grocery managers would take 4-5 cigarette breaks in 2 hours and then complain to you that you are not fast enough LOL. Anyone looking for a good working environment, and long term stability should not look nor give this place a chance. So glad I left this place, I didn't even bother to show up for my last two shifts nor did I call, or awnser their calls when they we're wondering why I didn't show up 😂 . Got a great job now with great hours something u just won't find at Organic Garage.
Cons
Management and toxic co workers

Good employees, awful management and head office
Cashier (Current Employee) –  Oakville, ON18 September 2018
- have to earn hours.
- a lot of gossip just like being at school.
- head office is highly unprofessional, management is awful and if head office yells to the managers expect to come into work being yelled at and told you are doing everything wrong.
- no structure.
- customers can be very rude but few nice regulars which do perk up your day.
- expect to go above and beyond with minimum wage, no raise, and no thanks. you can work overtime and help every department yet still be written up for the smallest inconvenience and hours can be cut from 42 to 10 if they don't like you.
- very unprofessional, HR is very biased on who they pick to hire and watch cameras 24/7 only to nit pick that you may be smiling or talking to another staff and you will be yelled at and now written up for.
- no discounts.
- only 1 good manager out of 4.

minimal pay with unrealistic expectations
worker (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON9 April 2018
A very negative work environment. HR has the best interest of the company rather than the people working there. They treat you as if your expendable.

Manager (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON13 February 2018
No matter what your position is at Organic Garage everyone pitches in and helps each other. Doesn't matter if your are the President or a Part Timer. Everyone in the Head office is accessible and helpful when you have questions.
Very fast paced environment and no two days are the same.
Pros
Great Staff and Managers

Horribly Managed
Grocery Clerk (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON6 February 2018
Everyone at this store hates their job. No one lasts more the six months because it is such a negative environment to work in. I have a hard time waking up to go to my job. The tasks are boring and repetitive. You don't really feel any sense of accomplishment from your tasks, and employees are easily expendable by design. If you're looking for a short part time job to make a couple of bucks then you can probably tolerate this place for a bit. If you are looking for a career or long time position, steer clear. Incompetence runs rampant throughout this company.

Positive working enviroment with a strong focus on customer service
Assistant Produce Manager (Former Employee) –  Oakville, ON24 May 2016
It was a pleasure to work at Organic Garage. If there is one word that could sum up the entire experience of working there it would be quality. The quality of the products sold, the quality of customer service provided, and the quality of staff performance was always of incredible importance. A typical day at work involved continuous quality control, ordering and receiving products, staff management, and assisting customers.The upper management was always invested in the success of their employees and continually provided the necessary tools to accomplish it.The most enjoyable aspect of the job was always the interaction with customers. Because the company is very community focused, a high priority was placed on providing exceptional customer service, and interactions with satisfied customers reflected that.

Good People, Terrible Company
Grocery Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Vaughan, ON3 June 2015
Most employees in store are very friendly and supportive, but as a family business working around other family members can be a pain as you have to accommodate them wherever possible.

Some company practices are backwards and redundant as they try to act like a large company even with only a few loacations.

The product sold in the store is quality.

Employees are not treated very well by head office staff and raises are seldom. Managers in store however are very friendly and helpful.
Pros
good management staff, good products
Cons
penny pinching, poor company values, poor company vision

A very relaxing but great learning experience. Managers were very friendly and eager to teach and make one feel part of the team. Employees were also very friendly, and the team environment was supportive.
