Current Employee - Former Grad Colleague  in  Brampton, ON (Canada)
Current Employee - Former Grad Colleague in Brampton, ON (Canada)

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

Pros

- learn many integral parts of the business
- make some great connections with Grads, Loblaw colleagues and Vendor partners
- reasonably easy and safe learning program

Cons

- very slow process
- very little understanding of what Grads are or what the Grad program hopes to accomplish
- leads to little respect for Grads, mostly due to lack of education or understanding

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- when putting a Grad into a department, make certain they know the Grads are not students, they are full time colleagues who are there to learn about the functions of that department. Grads are not to be ignored or pushed aside, they have insight from education and experience that could help that Colleague or department
