Stressful workplace
Deli clerk, in the factory (Former Employee) –  Whitby, ON28 August 2018
I started in the front and it was okay. It was extremely busy.. moved to the back to a nightmare. A lot of yelling between workers, they'll put new workers on crumby jobs. Some older workers are ' looney toons' but the attire and actual job is terrible. The only job I've ever walked out on. Also, a great place to feel out of place if you're a new worker.
Pros
..cant think of any
Cons
I wouldn't work here if I was paid 50/hr

:( wish this place was better
Happy i dont have it (Former Employee) –  Whitby, ON6 July 2018
This place was one of the worst places ive had the displeasure of working for. It starts from the top from a owner that casually calls people 'chico' casually. To the supervisors who feel they are able to insanely yell at the workers. Next to no training almost all guess work. No water...and very few breaks. Do not recommend
Pros
I dont work there now
Cons
Yelling at workers is common place

Awful
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Whitby, ON26 April 2017
Would give management no stars if I could because there isn't any. All guesswork, not consistent, one mistake and youre being yelled at by someone. Worked for some pretty awful places but I would call this one by far the worst. Look elsewhere
Pros
Good food
Cons
Horrible management
