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

    Pros

    - Union made sure even part-time employees had benefits including prescriptions and dental
    - Uniform

    Cons

    - Supervisors from different departments talking over and correcting each other constantly.
    - Shifts would be split in a way that covered noon to evening, so it was incredibly inflexible if I wanted to go to school.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Regarding your supervisors, make sure they're personable, or train them to be so.

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

    Pros

    Tight 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.

    Cons

    Long 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 ManagementAdvice

    Focus 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.
