A place they call family
Staff is underpaid for what they do.
Its a DYSFUNCTIONAL family atmosphere.

There are some good managers but the bad managers outweigh the good unfortunately.

Hours are cut, staff is treated poorly, customers are not happy, staff is not happy, it is a very stressful environment to work in.

Awsome place to work
This is a wonderful place to work, as it gives you the opportunity to get experience learning and understanding what customer service is all about. This company strives for excellence in customer service. During my time working there I have to say that after a long shift you I would feel a sensation of accomplishment. This only happens through hard work and pride in your work.
Pros
awsome staff and managment
Cons
Work life is a bit un balanced due to staff having to put in weekends and holiday hours

Good at first
Even after woking here for 3 years, I was layed off. And then replaced with in days. The pay was terrible. The only way I got a raise after 3 years was becuse minimum wage was raised. Management was awful and choose favourites all the time it was very easy to tell.
Pros
Was fun work
Cons

The good outweighs the bad
Fun place to work. Staff club creates many fun things to bond with peers, but difficult to go to all the time.

The new store is causing lots of stress, but the managers still strive to make the best working environment for their employees, despite upper management (and the board) decisions on standards.


Fantastic benefits, the best I've ever been offered. Pension plan, paired with the early retirement plan makes for an easy decision when looking for a long term career.


Lots of chances to move up, managers look to their own staff first to find a replacement or a new generation of leaders.


Federated Coop also provides so many courses that provide an opportunity to learn, which is helpful not only in the everyday job, but when a person is ready to move into a new position.


Unfortunately, most staff refuse to work sundays, causing undue stress on the staff who are willing to work sundays.
Pros
Great environment, opportunities for advancement, equal opportunity employer, staff discouts
Cons
Managers are resistant to change, short staffed on sundays

Very friendly environment.
Slogan is "you're at home here" couldn't be more correct. The atmosphere is the same as a big family. I look forward to working. Sometimes the work can be hard, but the staff make up for it. Easy paced, not strainfull or stressful.
Pros
Amazing benefits
Cons
Closes at 9 because of a small town.

Great to work but low pay
Is run by a board of directors who don't look out for their employees. The actual staff you work with are great. And is a very decent job but does involve hard labour.
Pros
Great coworkers
Cons
Poor pay

This is a fine place to work, with potential for advancements if desired
It is a fast paced environment, but the people that work there currently are friendly and approachable. I would recommend this employer.
