Loved till union was a hindrance to training and development Wasn’t able to develop staff and review properly A lot of pressure from manager when not trained properly
Being a supervisor my main task is to stay on top of things and support friendly environment at workplace despite any circumstances. I strive to be a good leader for my team.
Stressful at times
absolutely great place for personal growth, and they treat their staff so amazingly well, from 20 min breaks instead of 15 min breaks, great pension and health benefits. They do special events to show they care for staff by renting out Calaway park for the day with free admission and free big , cool toys for all the kids. Co-op is a great place and think it suits everyone

At Calgary Co-op I learned about providing quality customer service within a grocery / retail environment. They provided employee training to become a cashier and service clerk, allowing staff to comfortably manage the position. My colleagues were enjoyable to work with and some of them became personal friends. Management was quick to respond to situations where help and guidance were needed for employees.
Basically it's run by a bunch of old people that would be totally cool with you burning yourself out and working long hours, rather than working smart
Good pay, Good benefits
Long hours, horrible schedules, burn out, old inefficient leaders, management out of touch
Very friendly. Good pay. Understanding. Very good training I all departments oh&s are top notch. Clean stores and very friendly management. They are always doing things to help the neighbors very involved with the community. They care about there staff and have a calico club to celebrate the staff with different games.
My time at the Calgary Co-op bakery was very rewarding considering the part-time nature of the position. As a bakery utility clerk, my typical day at work would involve completing baking quotas and cleaning equipment while interacting regularly with customers. The management was always helpful and there was a high-degree of stability in my shift schedules and the workplace culture was overall very welcoming.
Okay place to work. Pay isn't terrible, it's what you'd expect from a grocery store. They are all about memberships so that's a big thing they push for. They seem like they want to be Superstore, but their prices sure can't compete. Some of the staff are great people to work with and friendly. Some of the management could use some serious work. Some of them are really nice and friendly and others act like they're better than you because they're management. For example if you have past experience in your field it doesn't really matter because they won't promote or train you in other jobs, they'll just pick and choose who they want or they'll hire someone new just for certain jobs. Hours suck. Sometimes you could get 30+ and other times you could get 8. They only hire casual so you don't get sick pay. Personally I think if you work here it should only be until something else comes along. The last thing you want it's to get stuck there in a dead end position.
Hours suck, management could use some work, expensive, training not great.
Worked for over a year there never had an issue until the manager was caught for stealing and then all of that managers hires got forced to quit because they accused all of us of stealing when none of us did. I liked the job itself and really enjoyed working there it was the perfect starter job for me. I was not aware of how to fight it just learning and felt that it wasn't worth it at the time. Be very careful there. Since management changed it's been awful. They don't train properly anymore and they do everything to not allow for growth. They will hire someone with no experience and cheaper so you can't move up.
It was a great first job with many flexibilities and opportunities to grow, I learned a considerable amount about life and working. It gave me my first taste of the working world and helped me develop many skills; such as customer service, retail, telephones, leadership skills, etcetera.
Flexible shifts, Opportunity to advance
Sometimes negative job culture
upper management does not have a good grasp on how not to spread people thinly, you do way too much out of your job description and they pile it on more and more until you snap. they also don’t ask how the department managers are because they can be good or terrible and some input would be nice.
moving up, pay raises
they don’t care about employee well being
Fair employer, flexible scheduling promotes from with in, normally good work environment sometimes standards and expectations can be a little dicey and your hard work will go unnoticed.
Allot of sick calls
