    I worked at Longos part-time

    Pros

    - Easy to get days off with dayforce - Opportunities to learn within and outside the department - Good environment for the most part, coworkers are good but it gets hard when the store is busy

    Cons

    - Constantly witnessed new hires get offered a better wage than those who've been working for years and get more hours too - Can be stressful when its busy, managers stop treating you like people

    Advice to Management

    make sure you're being fair to everyone and offer opportunities to learn

    • "Longos"

      StarStarStarStarStar
        Current Employee - Bakery Clerk and Cashier in Toronto, ON

        I have been working at Longos part-time for more than a year

        Pros

        The flexibility of being able to edit or change any availability within three weeks at your convenience. Yearly bonuses are great if the company does well

        Cons

        Upper management is terrible, they act as if you’re their slaves and nothing else is important. They don’t even try to learn employees names or anything unless you do something wrong and not even wrong just something they don’t like or if you offer a different opinion or perspective on something. Micromanaging and control over everything seem to be their main priorities. Managers are not very understanding of situations...

        I worked at Longos part-time

        Pros

        - nice co-workers - hard working managers - opportunity for students to learn the basics of customer service

        Cons

        Only downside would be working on holidays or the amount of physical labour involved (but depends on position)

      • "it was ok"

        StarStarStarStarStar
          Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

          I worked at Longos part-time

          Pros

          people were friendly, can move around in the store which is nice. Flex hours and works around your school schedule

          Cons

          management is more worried about what bosses are going to think than their employees. Based on favoritism so it's hard to move up
