    Current Employee - Grocery Clerk in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Current Employee - Grocery Clerk in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    I have been working at no frills part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Paid weekly
    Can change availability every week
    Friendly people, since all departments are not competing with eachother

    Cons

    Seniority gets more benefits
    Only got more shifts because one of the full timers quit
    No purchasing benefits of working here (e.g. no discounts)
    The work pace varies day to day, e.g. it can be really slow on Thursdays but super busy on Saturdays, therefore managers making you work faster

    Former Employee - Grocery Clerk in Milton, ON (Canada)

    I worked at no frills part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - You build a bond with your coworkers pretty quickly
    - The work itself is not too challenging, for the most part
    - Ample amounts of shifts and steady, by-the-week pay
    - For the most part, customers were unproblematic

    If you're willing to do any type of work a lot of hours, go for this job.

    Cons

    - Management (Pushed clerks around too hard, did little work themselves, assigned some part timers ridiculous amounts of hours (30+) and got frustrated with them when they could not work that much)
    - Some heavy duty work was required to be done under a small amount of time
    - Very poor atmosphere at times
    - Incredibly mundane work
    - Some clerks would get assigned an aisle that would be too much for one person to handle, while another would get an overly easy one

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Profit Sharing with part timers (and full timers) along with less pushing towards fairly pointless tasks (OCD level facing); focus on stock and keeping it tidy.

    Current Employee - Assistant Front-End Manager in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    I have been working at no frills part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work scheduled, decent rate of compensation, Friendly colleagues. Good experiences for future job prospects.

    Cons

    Limited room for Growth, Customers can be exceptionally difficult at times, High turnover due to nature of staffing strategy ( mainly part-time students only working for a shorter period if time (2-3 years)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More room for Upward mobility (ie. internships, placement opportunities at head office for qualified store levelcollegues)

    Current Employee - Cashier
    Current Employee - Cashier

    I have been working at no frills part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Fairly easy job. Fun with lots of variety in tasks. Management is decent and getting time off is easy if not at a high in demand period.

    Cons

    Pay is below what most others offer, especially for cash office positions. Customers can be rude. Some periods you were not allowed to take time off if more than a couple people wanted it. Time off for popular holidays was first come first serve so if not working often you often would not get popular days off, ex Christmas eve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay, especially cash office needs to be competitive with industry. Lottery system for popular days off.
