Amazing team and incredible working environment
I have been working in the bakery department since opening. I love my manager and my store manager. Love the culture and the vibe of the store. Owners of the company are also very caring and always appreciate hard work with gift cards. I have lot of freedom to create any new item I want and my manager always supports me. I am probably going to retire here, I can’t think of working in any other place except urban fare!!
Great management and customers
Lot of crazy homeless people in the neighbourhood although security does a great job.
Management is very supportive and genuinely cares about their staff members. They gave us all raises during the pandemic and numerous gift cards to appreciate the hard work and dedication. I feel very valued working at this store.
Great Team Atmosphere
Limited parking options
The Store Manager watch’s videos all day and show zero leadership, the morale is sad. Everyone backstabs everyone including management. Would be a good place if there was job security, and new mgmt, however no one is safe. Very slow store, they always fire and rehire plus the store is so overpriced and does not fit the current times. Will now take my business to Superstore East Village! Avoid at all case.
Customers can be nice
Breathe and you will get fired
Worked here as a Guest Service Clerk, responsible for making gift baskets and assisted customers in store. Also, I did personal shopping and deliveries. It was a fun place to work and all the supervisors and managers are easy going and fun to work with.
I have worked at Urban fare now for a little over a year and a half. I enjoy the environment of the building and the people i work with. I consider it a great environment for young adults to get their feet wet when entering the workforce, because there are so many area's for them to get experience in and so many fantastic people willing to teach them; if they are willing to actually work/learn. Management is fare, and treats you how you treat them. If you respect your job by showing up on time, in the proper clothing and actually behave like you want to be in the building doing your job, they reward you with patience, guidance, understanding and help. If you show up late, call in sick every other day and never lift a finger to do anything but the minimum, you are going to get the exact opposite. Every person working at Urban Fare are busy people, and don't have time to fool around with lazy workers. Over all, it is a good place to work. It is a grocery store. You will be serving the public, and customer service is of the highest priority at Urban Fare.
Great coworkers, good benefits package, employee discount
The "Long Term " Management were "Character Assassinating" behind the Scenes and then Apologize the Next Day. They definitely had Issues. They was One Manager who was Great yet now is Merchandiser.
I worked as a cashier at the Yaletown location and I found it to be a wonderful experience. My co-workers and managers were friendly and helpful. The workplace culture is easy-going and fun. The hardest part of the job is getting through the endless line of customers. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to fill up on fresh, delicious food.
During my time at Urban Fare I noticed how important team work is and I was always helped and greeted with a smile by all of my co-workers. Management worries for the well being of their employees and training is very important.
repetitive job easy to learn i learned to be very cautious with foods the management is great work place culture is cool the hardest part is bringing out the water melon besides the street and bringing it back at the storage room before closing time. most enjoyable part of the job is when the fresh products arrive
