Low pay and expected to give 100%

Not a good job. Get it if you absolutely need it but otherwise not something you want at all. If you have good management then it will br ok but otherwise it is not good.

Pros

Easy to get

Cons

Everything

Very sexist environment

Do not recommend working here very toxic environment poor ownership poor management lots of favouritism do not look after staff and it feels like a crime to take personal time off for legit reason such as sick family

Interesting at the best of times

What really makes your work day is the other staff and mood of your manager that day. It's a great starting point for anyone looking for a job between school.

Great supervising staff and bosses, however co workers may become an issue

It’s an okay place to work but as a junior staff member my pet peace became repeatedly covering shifts for other juniors so they could go out to parties or dinners with family friends and no one covering my own when I desperately needed it due to family sickness

A productive fun workplace with great pay and great staff.

I typical day at work was fun, with good shifts and a nice 10-minute break. I learned how to do checkout, and floor (stacking the shelves) and I learned how to work fast in a busy environment. The management was kind and easy to deal with. As it was my first job I found it helpful because it gave me the skills to help me with future jobs. I met great people, the pay was great and I had an enjoyable time.

Productive and effective workplace boss always made you feel welcome

Amazing place to work, I honestly wouldn’t be where I am with customers service if it wasn’t for the help of my co worker, i will always thank everyone there for the opportunity to work with them as a team

Easy job with fun coworkers but low pay and poor management

I worked in a small store with usually only 1 other staff member. This resulted in a variety of experiences learning about all parts of running a store. Many easy but sometimes tedious tasks needed to be done throughout the day as well as cashiering. Gets stressful when store is busy.

Pros

Simple tasks Good experience

Cons

Low pay Management can be rude

Quiet produce work place

working in the Produce area was very quiet cause I was mostly working by my self cutting vegetables٫rapping them٫ putting vegetables stock out on shelf's٫ food quality checks٫ and sometimes assisting customers. etc٫I mostly enjoyed the nice quietness cause I didn't have to talk to customers that much nor barely talked to my co workers٫ but besides all that one thing I didn't like there was because they had no medical stuff for you in case of injury and also I was a bit stress there cause there was always something that I forgot to do cause its very busy working in the produce area and sometimes the co workers weren't very nice to me. But its an ok place to work at

Pros

Quiet place to work at produce at when you don't really like talking to people

Cons

Not really any medical stuff for injury's and some co workers weren't nice

Good team members, however management was sorely lacking

The main issue with these establishments, at least the one where I was employed, are that the management and supervisors offload, the work onto the retail assistants without providing any real help, or solutions to any problems that arise.

Pros

Other team members

Cons

Management Pay General working conditions

Interesting

An interesting place to work. There was always something to do. You get paid minimum wage and in cash (if underaged) with no possibility of promotion or a raise. This was only for the store I worked at a could be different for other stores.

Pros

Flexible shifts

Cons

Wage

Used to have a deli manager who is very rude

Got ripped off with my pay. You do the job for less money. Hard work is not recognised. The old deli manager was nasty to customers and staff. It all started good at the first but it went downhill from there.
