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

    Pros

    • Friendly Coworkers/management
    • accommodating with availability
    • Employee discount after 6 months

    Cons

    • part time will be scheduled as full time (can’t take second job) - regardless if you’re available for mornings/afternoons/evenings you’ll be given 8 hour shifts every so often. Makes no sense as a part time employee.
    • Breaks are not scheduled (you get breaks but it’s only when they aren’t busy and someone can cover for you). Lets say you work 4:30-8:30 your break would be 6:30, but you’ll only get it if they can find someone to cover for you.
    • too much work for the payout. Your paycheque will be taxed like it’s not even funny. Work 20 hours and they’ll (the union) take roughly 10-15%. The union does nothing for you until you’ve worked for 2 years lol so they take roughly $1500 in “union dues” every year for nothing. You have to bag as a cashier which makes absolutely zero sense when I can go work at No Frills and throw bags on the line for customers and get paid the same amount. Personalized bagging is outdated and dumb.

    Advice to Management

    Change the way front-end works. Cashier bagging shouldn’t be a thing. Change how breaks work. I’m not your slave, breaks are a province regulated subject, not for you to decide. Ease up on the union dues for new employees. $40 out of a $280 paycheque is ridiculous.
