    I worked at Loblaw Companies full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great Place to work. I was lucky I had the best managers and I never had an issue. I was up to VP’s level. Great company to work for.

    Cons

    The only bad thing about it, if you are Manager they do not want to pay overtime. I worked more than 12 to 14 hours a day as well as weekends but no extra Money

    Advice to Management

    Paying someone little extra does hurt but at least employees will get some extra money to take home for their hard work.

    I worked at Loblaw Companies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company is big enough to have different opportunities to move internally. They also respect and encourage employees to learn.

    Cons

    There are too many departments to go thru before getting one simple thing to be done. Worse is no standard among departments and need to waste time to keep reviewing during the process.
