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

    Pros

    - They do their best to accommodate to your school schedule.
    - Working closely with shoppers can be fulfilling and very rewarding to help.
    - Depending on the department you work in, you can learn some really great tips and skills for preparing food, or just general food knowledge.
    - There is no work to take home.

    Cons

    - If your direct manager is difficult, this can make your job difficult (one manager wouldn't let me have a water bottle in the back).
    - Punching in and out for shifts/breaks/lunches (I was 100% on time, and never late for any punching in/out, but knowing I had to do that gave me some anxiety).
    - If you work in either fish or meat department, your clothes may smell, and they don't provide extra uniforms unless you lose it.
    - Little incentive for associates to provide ideas or come up with new ways to do things.

    Advice to Management

    Part-time workers are more than employee numbers or slots on a schedule. The best managers I had working here would strike up conversations with us, and treat us as equals, it made all the difference.
