- 5.0Jun 6, 2022Assistant Meat ManagerCurrent Employee, more than 3 years
- Management cares about the employees - 10 percent Grocery Discount - Benefits(Dental, Vision, Therapy etc.) - Good atmosphere to work at - Many internal hiring opportunities
-People with highest seniority tend to not care a lot about work. -It's hard to find a full time job if you are new to the company since the priority are for the seniority division no matter how good you may think.

Decent co-workers and a learning experience
Customers are awful and rude, standing for long periods of time with zero walking

-- No one is responsible for anything. It is all about how good you are in passing the buck. -- If you can open a can, you will be proclaimed a genius. If you talk about heuristics for operations optimization, you are sure to get a bad review coz your manager doesnt understand what you say and it is your fault. --No need to worry about doing a good job - the more you slack and circumvent work, the better you fit with the company culture.
A place that wreaks of bureaucracy . Not that bureaucracy is bad, but when bureaucrats are idiots well it is another story. Directors who escalate because they don't know how to unhide cells in excel, strategists who cannot understand basic common sensical nuances, you name it and you will find it in Loblaw. Not sure how this business is up and alive, coz when you see the stupidity under the hood , it is scary. Will take minutes for companies like amazon to squish them out . If you are a self respecting person with an iota of intelligence, don't join Loblaw.3
- 2.0Apr 27, 2022PC ExpressFormer Employee, less than 1 year
For reference, I worked as the person in the room loading cars and answering phone calls. Great co workers, flexible times, always needed for more shifts, and usually keeps you moving. You learn from working with many different kinds of costumers. For example, some may be angry or upset from an honest mistake by you or your co workers. It helped me learn how to mediate situations without escalating the issue. On the other hand, it also helped me learn that some situations are better left to the managers.
Pc express is far from a perfect system. I could never get it down to which caused more problems, human error, the company, or the costumers. The very first notable issue I found was that it gets very chaotic quickly. It can go from 1 car coming to their time slot late to getting 5 calls about mssing items, slow service, and for compensation on the poor service. Many factors come into play when it gets to that point. The most common one is that we are understaffed. During events like Christmas or Thanks Giving, we usually have the most costumers and the biggest orders. It's freezing and everyone's on edge. That's why I don't doubt people for calling in sick, wether they were actually sick or not. The problem is that we do not have enough workers to cover their shifts and it leaves us in the room creating easily avoidable mistake due to the time crunch. With the company charging only $3 per pick up order, I mean who wouldn't take it ; to not spend 1-2 hours shopping. The problem for us workers is that, not only are we filled with costumers every time slot, they increased the amount that are able to come in per time slot. 5-7 costumers per 30 minute does not sound too bad but you to take into account the size of their orders, if they come in time, and if the orders a complete for us to deliver. To keep it short, we miss items, alot of the time. We have two different type of jobs, the ones who load costumers and the ones who pick the items. With the time crunch that we have and being understaffed mistakes are unavoidable. If the workload was more in tune with us workers to balance it out, less problems for us and more beneficial for the company. With the company's motto of costumers first, we always have to compensate the costumers if we miss an item or if they're delivery's late. With that on top of the issues. We always have to compensate atleast 5 or more costumers who had a problem the day of or the day before. I just wish the company would actually change it for the better. Even raising the price from $3 to $7 would probably lift some amount of problems.
