Half terrible half ok
Wrote me up for complaining about a lazy supervisor and having one bad day after two years of being the hardest working cashier. Completely unfair. My mother loved it for the employee discount and that’s only in 2022.

Good place to work
I found a very supportive environment - great coworkers - it will be a fast-paced working environment but the good thing is that management is always available to assist you.

It depends mainly on who the owner is. In my case, the management had to work themselves to death, working over 40 hours a week constantly with no overtime. The boss himself insisted this job could be done 40 hours a week, but no one has ever worked that little. The expectations the owner had were out of touch with reality. For example, when scheduling, he never allowed enough hours to get things done, so the managers had to cover unpaid hours. A manager was even fired for only working 40 hours a week. In all, it's a high turnover type thing where no one lasts longer than six months. Because of this, no one ever knows what to do or how to help the customer because everyone is always a new higher. When they're trained enough to provide decent customer service, they leave because they're high school kids or other people looking to do something for a short time. It's an excellent first-time job to build some character and experience responsibility, but otherwise, it's not worth it for anyone who needs to make money to survive. The owner, in my case, was constantly unaware of what was happening in the store and just how many corners all the managers were cutting to meet his demands.

Good Experience
My day usually ran between 2am and 5pm. It depended on if it was inventoring, baking, cakes decorating or managing. I've learnt you have to organize your day to get the job done within the time aloted. Management is about keeping your cool under pressure and working with your employees to acheve a goal and that can usually change daily. I worked as a team member with my coworkers. The hardest part of my job was finding reliable employees. The customers and the interaction that I experienced with my employees.
ProsA great upper management team.
ConsNot a enough time in the day.

Not transparent, does not stand by the staff
Too many promises made on the front end to take advantage of newcomers. No loyalty to good staff members, and they will lie to protect themselves, particularly the top 5 of the hierarchy. The owner is a good man, but the rest is very unprofessional.

Management doesn’t care about you only sales
The management at (certain) no frills not all nut a majority only care about sales now an forgo any type of employee morale leaving you not wanting to work for them at all

Up & down
This job taught me a lot in the serving industry. The hardest part was being treated unfairly. The workplace is a fun but no room for growth. A typical day could be slow going or non stop.

Questions and answers about No Frills

How is feedback from management delivered at No Frills?
Asked Jun 24, 2022
Not good. They did one employee survey during my 12 months of working here. Matters were only dealt with after you spoke to the owners.
Answered Jul 24, 2022
It's not, the management is often tired and bitter so by when they need to give criticism it's often not dealt with or strangely passive aggressive.
