    Pros

    I really enjoyed my time working at Loblaws. My bosses were knowledgeable and shared a lot of their experience with me, which helped during training and learning sessions.

    Cons

    Long hard days was the down side of working at Loblaws. The other downside was that youre doing hard manual labour rain or shine.

    Advice to Management

    To try to think of the bigger picture at times, and also to not talk lowly of other employees to different employees as it implies that once you walk out of the room that they will be saying stuff about you as well.
