    Former Employee - Courtesy Clerk 
    Recommends

    I worked at Loblaw Companies part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The training they give you is excellent. There is opportunities to level up to higher paid positions. Everyone works as a team , you feel like your apart of a family . I got paid every week which i liked (instead of every two weeks) .

    Cons

    Sometimes customers are rude , and sometimes grocery items we’re prices wrong and we’d have to change it. , which made some angry customers. Also sometimes when I tried to take time off , my boss said no that I couldn’t. The only department that was allowed to receive benefits was the deli and i think that’s unfair.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Loblaw Companies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Travel all over Canada, drive different rental cars every week. Easy job

    Cons

    Too much favouritism with site managers. If they are your buddy, you dont have to work when everyone else does the job. Minimum wage pay and out of pocket expenses that later get reimbursed. Sometimes they dont pay the reimbursement fast enough to have your credit card ready for the next job.
