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

Pros

- learn many integral parts of the business
- make some great connections with Grads, Loblaw colleagues and Vendor partners
- reasonably easy and safe learning program

Cons

- very slow process
- very little understanding of what Grads are or what the Grad program hopes to accomplish
- leads to little respect for Grads, mostly due to lack of education or understanding

Advice to Management

- when putting a Grad into a department, make certain they know the Grads are not students, they are full time colleagues who are there to learn about the functions of that department. Grads are not to be ignored or pushed aside, they have insight from education and experience that could help that Colleague or department

    I worked at Loblaw Companies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very health conscious, and everything is by-the-book. Management makes an active effort to promote team spirit and has many 'spirit' days (e.g. Euro/FIFA Day, barbecues, races, teams, etc.). Everything is very transparent, which I admire - no closed doors.

    Cons

    Quite a bit of finger-pointing and misplaced blame for little mistakes; also my supervisor in particular barely ever cracked a smile. Not that I blame her; the pressure of the job is significant.


  2. "Very good part-time job for students"
