Je trouve cet endroit pénible pour travailler. Les heures pour ceux qui travail avec les agences sont incertaines. Le froid est un obstacle et les superviseurs ne respectent pas le personnel surtout ceux qui viennent des agences. Je ne recommande pas ce lieu. Le salaire est juste le minimum requis.

Brutal company. Great products, great staff. Senior leadership is a joke. Too many cooks in the kitchen. Not given an exit interview upon my dismissal as they don’t want to hear the truth.

Unprepared store opening made everything terrible

Their biggest issue with the opening of the Barrie location was the terrible decision to only train about 20% of the employees before store opened. the city was so excited about the grand opening so it was always busy. having MANY untrained people was a terrible mix. And when they hired new people to help, the people already there were so burnt out that they didnt get trained well either. Really rough situation to work in, I am very appreciative and pleased with my new job. I learned a lot about myself and others while working at farm boy so I wouldn't say I regretted it. I would not suggest seeking employment here. I'm not sure if Barrie location will ever get it together. If you know your self worth, don't apply.

Over encumbering loads of work

Minimum wage for constant stress by the end of the day. Forced participation on mindless quizzes. Constant teaching with no pay raise to accommodate while balancing my own chores.Nearly all of their food info is online instead of labelled on their packaging. Makes it very awkward to tell someone when they're shopping in-person that they should "research before coming in."Anyone working 8+ hours has a mandated 30-min break that automatically deducts 30 minutes off your paycheck. No extra training on extremely common requests (details omitted).Personal manager is great. Other managers are few and far in-between.Hostile design overall in the store includes: - Not enough information in-store for customers to help themselves (i.e. ingredients/allergies/gluten/wild caught-farm raised)- Discount grocery shelves are not labelled and are placed on an inconspicuous trolley- Common condiments are placed lower so that Farm Boy can market their condiments on higher shelvesThe hardest part of the job is having to deal with the coworkers. In none of the case is it their fault, it's purely the workplace itself not providing training beforehand and placing it on the little guys to teach people.The easiest part of the job is non-existent.

Points positifs

Very nice people and customers in general

Points négatifs

Nearly everything.

This is possibly the most toxic workplace ever. Management is horrible. The new Admin manager is so rude and has a horrible attitude. They need better staff.

Expect too much for minimum wage

Better work quickly and consistently for minimum wage or you won’t last long. Management always watching. Also high prices, average family could not shop there

It’s ok

It’s okay, management sucks and over work you. Could be better. Management will berate you if you make a mistake. Lots of lying and talking behind employee back

Stressful - toxic Environment

Dont ever think of ruining ur life here or wasting your time here. Ur just treated as a Body. There is no growth - here it’s a family breeding policy - only upper management gets to grow or their family members will get positions and u are just a slave. U have to meet multiple manager’s expectations. There is no process streamlined or executed neither u get support for that as they are tied up with issues - u can smell greed when u see the top management

Good Place to work but sometimes given many tasks

Alot of tasks for a minumum wage job, sometimes its a very easy job, but it is very boring and tedius. But somtimes giving alot of tasks resulting in you staying and hour or two after the closing shift is scheduled to finish.

Points positifs

Sometimes relaxing

Points négatifs

Messly organized

50% worker are lazy ,people from the top are nice but work their _____ off for target that is non achievable(dont know if that could be refined or adjusted. Costing and shift arrangements seems wired all the time. One shift with all new bees ,another with tea time ladys ..and the rest of the work is pushed to hard working people,goods crowding the whole receiving area. And hard working people dont stay longer than 2 month.Prepare for stress before u apply for the job.They will make u go through all company policy and dutys in half a day like they dont care.Then u start working on things out of your job discription for the Old ghosts ,and u couldn't even finish your won duty.Or just maybe this position is for dealing all the things people dont wanna get their hands on including dumping , price reduction etc

Exhausting place to work

Good benefits..that's the only good thing I have to say. Treat staff as disposable. Upper management insulting and berating. Department Specialists (especially chef department) are just "yes men" for upper management. They have no deisre to actually help employees.

Points positifs


Points négatifs

Long hours, finger pointing, hypocrisy

A broken machine

Within every level of management, nobody agrees. Corporate is delusional, making demands not based in reality. Pay is bad. Training is non existent, and when requested management gets angry

All the work gets thrown at you

Underpaid and overworked. You get to do supervisor/manager work for a customer service representative pay. HR did not care who they were hiring or for your concerns.

Great workplace culture

Great training program, lots of opportunity for advancement dependant on putting the work in. You get out of a job what you put into it, so if you’re willing to put the work in and strive for a respectful work environment you’ll do great!

Decent job

The job was decent. Not great pay but they gave me good hours. People were friendly. There are so many managers it's unbelievable, the job is pretty easy and the managment is friendly.

Toxic work environment

Lots of teenagers work there and adults who act like teenagers. A lot of drama and talking behind peoples backs. Lots of micro managing and pay not worth the work effort.

Terrible upper management. Especially at the Westboro location.

It’s all about the favourite employee and the Westboro location is no different.They will never recommend a pay raise.They will never recommend a promotion. Even if you are more qualified.They do not recognize a persons good work ethic or the extras that they do without pay.Huge department staffing problems. Emotionally compromised department manager. Same goes for the other department managers. No wonder no one wants to stay employed there long. LolToo much drama.Christmas PANDEMIC bonus was a toque and a scarf. Cheap executives. Nice to hear they all got the million dollar bonuses for being such a..h…s

Points négatifs

Stress depending on your tolerance levels
