I worked at Loblaw full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Good Pay, Good Benefits, Good Training. Good equipment use in the distribution centres which is also well maintained. Employee discount at the store level.

Cons

Once I hit top rate at the DC I felt like management's attitude toward me had changed. It seemed as though they were just trying to bug me enough so that I would quit...then they could get someone else making less money, to do the same job.

Advice to Management

Need to do a better job making the employees feel more appreciated. Some work VERY hard, and that should be respected and appreciated.

    I have been working at Loblaw full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, Employee discount, pension, flex time.

    Cons

    Salary! The worst and so below industry standard. It's almost funny, but still sad. And due to restructuring of wages, employees with +20 years of experience are at the same wage level as someone who walks in off the street. I'm refering to Corporate jobs, not store level.

    The favoritism is appalling. Truly qualified, experienced and deserving employees are passed up for promotions, and the dumb guy who can't even work a mouse is promoted because he drinks on weekends with the boss.

    Advice to Management

    Leave.

    I have been working at Loblaw part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Busy work, an excellent opportunity to learn new things, knowing where things are in the store, 80% dental coverage, starting wage 9.75$/hour awesome health benefits.

    Cons

    Rude customers, but that's not the store's fault. Sometimes the price checkers and cash pickupers can be very rude and impatient.

    Advice to Management

    More coffee and donuts!
