Good only if you are on managements special side

Grocery Assistant (Current Employee)
Rothesay, NB (Canada)

ProsThe wages are competitive and it is hard to find anything better without a degree or trade. You can easily make new friends with coworkers.

ConsManagement is not positive enough. They are overly critical towards their night crew. The night guys are the hardest physical workers in store and they often keep expecting more than what is humanly possible. They need to give more hours to do the job and maybe offer more reward incentive when doing a good job. It is hard to keep great workers when they don't feel positively engaged. High levels of stress are felt too frequently.

Advice to Senior ManagementHave some sort of appreciation events/opportunities for over night workers who are unable to attend any similar events during the daytime. Working over night is very hard and it is discouraging to not feel as appreciated within the organisation.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
