I worked at Loblaw full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great people, engaging charity efforts, green company, fast paced, challenging workloads, leading technology ...

Cons

Poor communication from senior management at times, senior management does not always walk the talk, sometimes senior management let the good leaders go and they keep the bad ones? Did not communicate why and caused much uncertainty, doubt and confusion ...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to keep more of the good managers and directors that were making a positive difference to your employees and improving the company rather then turfing them and keeping the bad ones that are destroying your culture. Morale is at an all time low and the "A" talent has left the building ... what were you thinking?

    I worked at Loblaw part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    It was a pretty relaxed atmosphere. The hours are much more flexible than any other job. (I decided to only work 2 days a week when life got busy).

    Cons

    Management is horrible. Extra favours and promotion given to those who suck up. Pay was a joke and included union fee deductions which were a huge portion of my pay check. Amount of raise was something like 20 cents per 100 hours worked or something which never counted since minimum wage increased faster than that and it would reset. Job was high stress and the pay was not worth having customers yell at you about things out of your control like prices scanning wrong.
