Life at Loblaw

Diversity and inclusion

Crystal paves the path less travelled

When Crystal Furey began her career over 20 years ago, she rarely saw another female in the room. She graduated as an industrial engineer from the Technical University of Nova Scotia, where she was one of just six women in the class. Today, she’s the only female General Manager of distribution at Loblaw. She leads two of Atlantic Canada’s five Loblaw Distribution Centres: DC 21 in Halifax and DC 15 in St. John’s.

Scott remembers his fellow soldiers

For Scott Winkler, Remembrance Day is personal. It’s about honouring the men and women — including those he served alongside in the Canadian Military — who made the ultimate sacrifice in the pursuit of peace and freedom. Scott, a Transportation Reconciliation Specialist who typically works out of our Maple Grove distribution centre in Cambridge, Ont., served three years as a member of the 1st Battalion Royal Canadian Regiment in the early 1990s.

Ange-Lyne signs in

Earlier this summer, a manager at a Loblaws® store in Ottawa captured a short video of a heartwarming scene: 21-year-old barista Ange-Lyne Patenaude using sign language to communicate with a regular customer who is deaf and usually gives his order by typing it on his phone.

Diversity and inclusion

Listen up, Karin has something to say

When she’s working in the health and beauty department at the Real Canadian Superstore® location in Nanaimo, B.C., Karin Medd carries a pen and paper. That way, if someone approaches her with a question, Karin can gesture to her ear to communicate that she’s deaf, then offer the pen and paper to the customer. The widespread use of masks due to COVID-19 makes lip-reading impossible, so these tools are key to her communication.

Claudia’s best first job

When it comes to first jobs, Claudia Sinopoli says hers was the best. A bulk part-time Clerk at a Fortinos® store in Vaughan, Ont., she cites the friendly employees and positive work environment as the biggest reasons why someone should consider working for the company—but they’re not the only things she loves about her job.
