    I have been working at Loblaw part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Almost all employees are friendly
    - 10% discount card after working 6 months
    - Other benefits such as dental, pension etc.

    Cons

    You don't get your discount until working 6 months
    "Benefits" don't benefit students!
    If you're under 18 you don't get benefits, and they still take so many fees from your pay! I get $20-30 taken each paycheck for "union dues" from which I don't benefit from.. that's 2-3 hours of pay :(
    Demanding availability. hard for students to have a balance

    Advice to Management

    Need to ease up on students, it's hard for us to balance work and school, especially if you pressure us into staying longer
