    I worked at Loblaw part-time

    Pros

    great co-workers, relatively clean and new space, friendly management with very flexible scheduling. Very good job for young people/students.

    Cons

    no online scheduling system so you have to go in to see your schedule, and it was only posted 3 days before that work week started and they'd only post one week at a time.

    Advice to Management

    use an online scheduling system for ease of both the employees and employers with time-off requests and viewing the schedule. and post more than 1 week at a time
