    I worked at Loblaw part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent wage for students seeking a part time job. The presence of a workers' union will surely protect you from employer abuse(if it exist). Very friendly work environment and management recognition for hard work done by individuals.

    Cons

    Union dues is a problem if you are only thinking of working for a short period of time. I really hate how most of the employees left around 4pm everyday, and I cant even get hold of anyone from another department. Stealing can be a big issue in some department.
