Loblaws City Market Review

I have been working at Loblaw part-time for less than a year

ProsThe team is extremely friendly, the store structure is flat and management frequently asks for feedback. Employees are empowered.

Working as a department clerk

Grocery Clerk (Former Employee)
Calgary, AB (Canada)

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

ProsDecent 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.

ConsUnion 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.

Enjoyed my time so far.

Setup Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Loblaw full-time for more than a year

ProsThe people are probably the greatest part - everyone is down to earth, helpful, and it's a pretty young company overall. Management is very available and responsive, Some nice benefits.

ConsFeels like salary is generally lower than average, or not adequate for the amount of time and dedication your job requires.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore enticing or at least competitive salaries would be nice, and would help retain employees...I could be gone as soon as I find something more interesting.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great Company- Hard Work For The Future

Assistant Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Loblaw full-time for more than 5 years

ProsDespite its efforts to amalgamate supply and management centrally- staff are still community focussed and driven to client satisfaction. Business strategies are a constant update meaning every day brings new challenges.

ConsA publically traded company meaning profits go away from workers-wages are frozen for top employees and are falling behind cost of living.Most full time employees are barely hanging on. Training hour allowance have been removed making it nearly impossible to bring in new talent- generally that is the sign of the end in most organizations. The management teams are holding their breath for improvement in 2013-14.

Advice to Senior ManagementShake up the issues between specialists and department managers-follow up on issues regarding SPLAN changes and stop shoving inventory down the pipe. If we say we don''t need it, we're usually correct.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
