Hard working and Family Oriented Environment
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
Cons
None

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.
