Great place to work
I wasn't there for very long but everyone made me feel very welcome and I enjoyed my time there. I liked the fast paced environment and the friendly customers and staff.

Not good
This company may be good for regular team members looking to work in an interesting environment. The company is very old school and the owners are extremely involved.

Terrible
Managers dont know how to manage they dont do any work. Half of the price labels are missing in the store things are not scanning and no one knows the prices for things. They want to run high end businesses but they dont even have bags and cutlery, according to them they dont fit in the budget. Same problems almost every week. If they continue to have managers like these run their stores for sure they will go bankrupt. And they are filthy owners should go inside the food stations and see open your eyes your stores are disgusting

Great place to work
The best department you could work in there is the produce section. Great work environment and colleagues. Growth prospects are slower but the work is not at all stressful

Questionable direction
I am not sure what to really say, its not the worst job. It is retail after all.

I recommend getting in only if you need to pay bills, career wise there is not much room for movement so if you are looking beyond store level I wish you best of luck. (Head office is basically downsized)


Currently many of the head office types are jumping ship (20+ year types) and it makes you wonder... sales have been down significantly from previous years and the amount of labor used is being paid for in ways I absolutely cannot answer.

Oakville closed last year, next is Sherway for sure, and I would not be shocked to see Queen go.


Workplace culture is one of favoritism, through and through.


Benefits are for full time only and kick in after 6 months.


Vacations are always unpaid, you do not have a choice in getting paid out in every paycheck...so if you are not a great saver, you will hurt if you take time off.


Tons of frill and little to no substance.


If you're a numbers person, they care about margins and not volume.

Hopefully someone figures out that overcharging 50% on something that does not sell still nets you a margin of 0.
Pros
its a job.
Cons

Job Culture
Managers treat employees unfairly unless they favor certain people. People that work very hard are treated with no respect at all.
Never work for Pusateris, the magaers use you and don't care about you. They only want the employees to make them look good and cover for them and at the end of the day they treat you like garbage.

Worst place to work
If they could treat you any worst they would.

Work you like a slave then tell you that you can’t be off sick, or punish you when you call in sick.


Raise of .75 cents after 6 years.
Pros
30% off discount
Cons
Cut your hours when they want, cut you from the schedule, daily harassment, treated poorly, no room for advancement, no raises after many years

Disorganized
A typical day consisted of stocking items, especially drinks for guests coming to purchase lunch. The store was arranged in a very hectic manner, and it could have been set up in a more functional format. Spacing was limited, and overall it was not an enjoyable workspace. Your work uniform is white, the receiving bay is practically 200 years ago and quite dirty/dusty, and I was required to go down there almost every shift, and you are required to purchase/clean your own uniform(s). Pusateri's is a Loblaw's in the making.
Pros
Good food/products
Cons
Horrendous workspace layout.

A good place for people hoping to work in service to others as part of a team, to ensure high quality
Working at Pusateri's was very comfortable for me, and they have a very wide range of departments to work and cross train into. While the guests can be choosy, we are taught to attempt to ensure we always have what they ask for, even if we have to make it for them. This is the sort of thing I enjoy in a workplace.

Avoid at all costs
They throw words around like "fostering growth" and "leadership opportunities" but they are just dangling carrots in front of you. They want you to smile at all times and be happy but managers are constantly yelling and talking down to you. They are too self absorbed to even attempt to help you through anything, you are literally dirt on the ground to them. Most don't even know what they are doing anyway, they are just "yes men" to the owners. The head office team often come in and point out your inadequacies while they sit in their ivory tower setting the company up for failure.
Human Resources is a joke, don't ever think you can go to them for anything here. They would rather fire someone in HR for trying to help than actually see someone get assistance. Ask them how many HR reps have been fired in the last year.

The only saving grace of this place are your fellow co-workers, but it's more of a "we're all dying together" type of friendship you'll gain.

Avoid this place at all costs. They are the absolute worst place to work for!
Pros
Co Workers
Cons
The worst managers you've ever seen
