A decent entry level job for those without other commitments.

Supply Chain Analyst (Current Employee)
Mississauga, ON (Canada)

I have been working at Loblaw as a contractor for less than a year

ProsTight knit colleagues in the same department promotes excellent teamwork. Workplace diversity creates an interesting environment. Relatively flexible work time and place within limits. No specific technical experience or education required for entry. Traveling opportunities for on-site work create interesting experiences.

ConsLong but somewhat unreliable work hours. 24/7 on call rotation every few weeks on top of regular office hours means one can have up to 60 hours work week. This will heavily interfere with family life and other activities. Communications and politics between inhouse and outsourced departments have much to be improved and can be frustrating.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on proactive prevention as opposed to reactive short term solution should be increased. Communications between different departments need to be improved. Upper management should encourage more collaboration between divisions and reduce defensive attitude and finger-pointing in problem solving.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Grad Program experience

Former Grad Colleague (Current Employee)
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… Cons: - very slow process - very little understanding of what Grads are or what the Grad program… Advice to Senior Management: - when putting a Grad into a department, make certain they know the Grads are not students, they are full time colleagues who are there… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
