    Pros

    Company is good there is an opportunity to grow within, good benifits but only if u have good managers who believes in groth and development and are supportive.

    Cons

    Management wasn't good at regina east store. They want us just to work work n work don't think about promotions and getting ahead.they themselves forking from 22 years on same position n expect us to work on same position with 2% rise every year.

    Advice to Management

    If u don't want to grow since last 20-22 years that doesn't mean people also want to work for donkey years give them opportunity or support them by giving support when there is opportunity instead of giving bad reviews and keeping them in your store for ever on same position.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance; flexible work arrangements

    Cons

    Competitive industry; good performance many years and some bad

    Advice to Management

    Turn-over (including exits) and external hires changed the corporate culture since the early 2000s. Don't forget those who helped build and sustain the business.

    Pros

    Working with customers, customers are the best part of my day. So kind and understanding :)

    Cons

    Bad management. No respect from management. They degrade you in front of customers. They make everything seem your fault. Even when you haven't done anything, they will put you on the spot just to make you nervous about what you are doing. You have to be a serious BUTT KISSER to do your job properly or get more shifts. Management picks sides and play favorites.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with some respect. You don't have to be so rude.

    I worked at Loblaw part-time

    Pros

    The work was not too hard as a store analyst, especially during training because easier jobs that the regular customer service representatives did not have time for was passed to you.

    Cons

    Scheduling was very conflicting and strict (hard on people balancing jobs with school work). The management was also very rude and made the environment very negative. The work was also very dry and boring, especially when organizing store displays (plannograms).

    Advice to Management

    Need to work on better relations with their employees, the management was not friendly at all and contributed to a very tense atmosphere. There was also tense relations between different department heads which resulted in unnecessary drama and politics.
