Prep Cook (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 3 July 2017
Urban Fare alberni is a very good place to start your first job or for experience, however it is very difficult to advance in your job as they do not have a lot of people to train you and would rather hire people with experience
Barista/Server (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 27 March 2017
Loved my team for the most part, but there was a lack of responsibility within some parts of the team which led to others having to pick up slack. Customers were 50/50 but there were times where I felt uncomfortable as to how I was treated as an employee there.
Deli/Bakery Clerk (Current Employee) – Kelowna BC – 29 January 2017
Urban Fare is a great place to work, whether you need part time for school or full time! With so many different departments to work in it's always exciting! After 3 months you start getting benefits, after a year you get 2 weeks paid vacation. And it's part of a union!
Grocery Store Clerk (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 21 August 2016
the work place does not respect their employees and and does not honor the union contract. the coworkers are ok but the majority are lacking in any ability to fight for there rights when managment oversteps there boundaries
Bakery Clerk (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 11 August 2016
It was a good place to work. But wasn't challenging enough and wasn't getting enough hours or pay. If these two things where different I would have lasted longer. But all around good company to work for
Permanent -Part time (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 14 November 2015
If you like interacting with different people , Urban Fare is fun place to work. Salary is lower than Superstore. You will learn a lot. In any workplace, you always meet good and bad Supervisor , so that will depend which department you are. My advise is do not work in the Restaurant or Cap Bar because it is a hardest job and lowest paid among the rest of the department.
