    Former Employee - Cashier/Customer Service in Penticton, BC (Canada)

    I worked at MarketPlace IGA part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I absolutely loved working here. The staff was like a family to me and they were very flexible with hours and basically everything else!

    Cons

    It was a little clique-y between some of the younger employees.

    I have been working at MarketPlace IGA

    Pros

    Love that I work with people that have become family, fun work environment.

    Cons

    The owner is a micromanager that doesn't show appreciation for good work with pay raises or verbal encouragement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay for the work people do, not the cheapest rate you can get them for.

    I have been working at MarketPlace IGA part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The store was very clean and my coworkers were nice. Before they were transferred, my managers were awesome! I never had any significant problems with anyone. I stocked shelves and the time passed quickly enough.

    Cons

    Pay was low, but that was expected. It could get a bit boring sometimes, I suppose. The freight elevator sometimes didn't work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire fun managers more often. Haven't met a bad one yet, however.

    It was okay, felt like I was never good enough. Managers too young. Owners were great.

    Pros

    Best reasons is that it's a great grocery store, somewhere proud to work. Good experience on cash. Privately owned so they are all very different.

    Cons

    Learning all the codes. Cash supervisors too young. Never told you when you did things right, only wrong. Miss communication with management all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that the supervisors and managers know what they are talking about before they criticize an employee. Very discouraging.
