Ok
STAFF PHARMACIST (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MBSeptember 15, 2016
pharmacy is properly staffed. pharmacists spends most of their time concentrating on servicing customers. Management rules are more geared towards front tore. Front store management is supervising pharmacy operation more than their expertise would allow which sometimes cause conflicts

Morning Stocker (Current Employee) –  Calgary, ABSeptember 13, 2016
Stocking early in the morning & installing tires when the store is open. I have learned to manage my time & help my co-workers when they fall behind. management is easy to communicate with & there is always someone available to handle any issues. The job is very versatile, & I have been in many departments. I have met many people & have enjoyed working along side many of them.
