    I have no advice for management. I don't want to give advise to management. The management is fine. You just have a few who take their job too serious.

    Pros

    To get more skills and knowledge which i did not experience in my previous work and mingle with co worker.

    Cons

    to share what I have learned through my previous work experiences and to get more knowledge about my work for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    follow instruction and always have a presence of mind. There is unity and coordination among each other with the team.

    I have been working at Metro full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fantastic, talented people, there when you need them, unless they're in a meeting

    Cons

    mid-level management overworked, doesn't know how to do the people side all that great, there's chaos

    Advice to Management

    help structure people to use their time more meaningfully, train your mid-level managers and give assistant to senior level staff the tools (trainings) to improve performance and save time. too much time sitting in meetings.

    Pros

    Easy job with little supervision. You just show up and load the store with whatever product is needed at that moment or help set up the stock room in the back. Repetitive and simple. No real responsibility, easy for students.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement and no wage increases. Friend of mine worked there for 7 years and still made minimum wage.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more communication between employer and employee. Allow for wage increases and people to move up the ladder.

    I worked at Metro part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - a lot of busy work that makes the time go by quickly - an apparent satisfying benefits package that I never got because I'm part time - vacation time for full timers - a lot of hours - the food from the hot case is pretty good to buy for your breaks - they pay you for the first 15 minutes break you get - potential for up to $25/hr CAD

    Cons

    - my supervisor abused us verbally but there was nothing we could do because the chain of command - customers are snobby and rich - management would rather make a rude customer happy than an employee - it's kind of depressing being trapped in a grocery store all day - upper management would come in every now and then and criticize how I do my job for no reason - no discount whatsoever

    Advice to Management

    Not really a good job if you're a student because they're not very understanding
