    Good company to work for.

    Cashier (Former Employee) Uxbridge, ON (Canada)

    ProsGood managers make all the difference. If they like you, then it will be easier to get time off that you requested and help you out when you need a shift covered. If you are hardworking and show initiative, you will get to move up in positions.

    ConsMinimum wage pay, sometimes have too many cashiers working and sometimes not enough. Some people that you work with don't care at all about putting an effort into their work which can be frustrating.

    Alright but not the best.

    Receiving (Former Employee) Ottawa, ON (Canada)

    Pros-Alright hours
    -Decent wage for starting
    -Discounts
    -People that worked there was alright
    -Breaks were good, 1 hour and 2 15s for an 8 hours shift.

    Cons-Management is some times clueless
    -Wages, while a bit more than minimum wage, are not the best
    -Scheduling was sometimes horrible
    -Directions were sometimes bad

    Advice to Senior ManagementHonestly need to learn more about your employees and not just check up on them once every 2 weeks. I was clueless to getting a review every 3 months from a manager I don't interact with, while the Lead of my department that I worked with most of time didn't do it.

     

    good job, mostly good coworkers

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosyou get benefits after 6months, possibility of getting a raise, you don't see time go by so thats also a plus

    Conslow salary, some coworkers are a pain in the butt, most of em are ok but some of the management sucks

    ConsI could have used more hours, the bathroom was always out of toilet paper when I needed it most.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
