Pastry Chef (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 14 January 2019
I enjoyed working at Sunterra for several of reasons, the biggest reason would be the people I worked along side with. The environment was positive and always heartwarming as everyone treated each other like family and worked hard to build something together into making the company a success.
Grocery Clerk (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 4 November 2018
I worked there for not very long because of management, my manager never listened to floorstaff and only believed in their way or no way. Repeatedly called out my dyslexia when messing up words and often was rude. I strongly suggest a different department or different store. The coworkers are awesome and had some good times with them but ultimately a bad manager is a badjob.
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 26 July 2018
At Sunterra Market is fun place to work because 90% filipino people who work at Sunterra, Everybody are helping each other if one person done his or her work as other if they need help. Management are very understanding and help people on there problem.
Management Trainee (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 28 July 2018
Poor management, poor pay, poor listening skills, only thing keep that place together is the few who are under pay and taken advantage of no one is listen to when you speak to manager, or in HR, they think they are above everyone, asking for time off months in adavnace and remind them weekly and still wont give it to you unless you find someone to cover you, they give manager task / responsibilities to anyone include new / under experince people, with no raise, you'll work hard they tell you everything you want to hear but nothing will ever happen, no one will say good job to you after working late hours extra hours or coming in on your day off, no one cleans here no one checks date of product in back cooler, re wrap anything and everything they have, expired product everywhere - this was at britannia location not sure about the rest but would never work for britannia again,
MAnagement and service oriented both the clients and staff.

Baker/Cashier (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 3 April 2018
I did not have a good experience working at this company. The manager didnt seem to care about his empolyees, only about saving money and cutting hours. He was never around and there was nobody doing inventory so we were always running out of things (butter, soap, forks). Everything was disorganized and unprofessional. The hardest past of the job was to finish on time. I always ended up working late, expecially around the holidays because there was just too much for one person to handle. I never felt valued, and i never got a raise. . A lot of the people that worked there were really nice hardworking people, who should have been paid more.
Part-Time Bakery Clerk (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 16 March 2018
This was my first job. I was a part-time bakery clerk. Basically helping customers either in person or over the phone, filling showcases, doing minor baking, and cleaning was essentially my job. It gave me great work experience. Although the management wasn't that great, the employees from other departments were really fun to be around. I found that the bakery department had a lot of drama and issues more than the other departments combined. The management didn't really solve any issues, they just talked through everything and thought they solved them. I will say, the managers themselves are really nice and fun people. But when it comes to actually dealing with issues, they don't really help. It is a very fast-paced environment. You have to be a very quick worker and get things done on time or else you will be behind the next day, which they hate! Especially during the holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas. If you can handle working at Sunterra, you can handle working anywhere!
Great coworkers, discount, set schedule, great starting job
long hours (especially during holidays), little to no advancement, management, drama

Farm Labourer (Former Employee) – Strathmore, AB – 8 December 2017
typical day at work involves taking care of hundreds of animals who completely rely on you to feed and take care of them! the workplace was a hard one to be in but it certainly had its rewards with the job. The hardest part of the job was being inside all the time and the best part of the job was dealing with the piglets.
Baker, Cashier (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 4 October 2017
Worked many positions at this grocery store, we served a higher end clientele. Family oriented and lots of opportunity to learn different departments in the store. Early morning shifts. Most enjoyable part of this job was the staff and clients we served.
Dish Washer /Customer Service/Restocking (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 14 July 2017
At Sunterra, just like any other job you are given a daily list of tasks to complete. Sunterra provides a very customer intuitive experience, they provide a large range of work experience from dish washing to being a line cook. From grocery stocking to working at a cash register. Management is strict when it comes to work yet kind and welcoming. Workplace environment is great with many kind and young co workers it hardly gets boring. The most difficult part about working at sunterra would have to be finding space in the kitchen. Sometimes with too many people their is hardly enough counter space to work at. Besides that sunterra is a very enjoyable place to work and the employee discount is a great addition!
Part-time Cook (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 20 July 2017
I started at Sunterra in 2013, and after four years the store had so many issues. I can't say that it was anyone's fault at the store, but the new management talked about issues and never seemed to solve them. The main problem seemed to be the complete lack of support from the head office in Calgary.
