    Be more selective about your franchise owners and actually train them in employee relations

    Former Employee - Cashier in Mississauga, ON

    I worked at Bulk Barn Foods part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    My coworkers were awesome, supportive, and fun people

    Cons

    No employee discount. Food that people take out of the bins and then don’t buy has to be put back in... sometimes we don’t know what the product is (usually when it’s a flour, like a white powder) and just put it in whichever bin. One of the male supervisors was paid more than a female supervisor, despite the female doing to same job and having more seniority.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t put stuff back in the bin. Treat employees better.
