    I have been working at Loblaw full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The Mobile Shop is an excellent company to grow your sales skills and rise through the ranks with! There are a few people who went from being a 'Mobile Advisor' to a 'Lead Advisor' in under a year based on performance. The leadership team is amazing, and promote a culture of fun and growth.

    Cons

    No raises, the only way to make more money is to actually perform at a higher level by selling more volume, attaching more accessories, and selling our in-store warranty.

    Pros

    Great head office amenities (cafeteria, gym, etc.). Opportunity to work in different areas of the business. Friendly culture without a lot of politics.
