Cashier/Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 2 December 2013
Starting a day at work being a Cashier/Merchandiser would normally start with Merchandising; finding a aisle that needs to be merchandised and begin working. You would unload the product, price it and put it on the correct shelf. If the other cashier on till got busy, or it was time for them to leave, you would need to go on till. Jobs on till include working with cash and assisting people find items and the prices of them. Other jobs of a cashier would be to stock the candy shelves and work around the till. Along with cleaning the till area and counters.

to work at dollarama a person should be multitasker and fast. because everything in the store is maximum of 4 dollars so this store is always busy. for a cashier the most important thing is to ensure that line ups at the counter should move as fast as possible.
Dollarama (Cashier) (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 20 July 2017
I enjoy working at Dollarama because the atmosphere is very welcoming. This job also gives flexible hours which is very beneficial since I do go to University. From working at Dollarama I learned how to work with various types of people and how to time manage myself.
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Richmond Hill, ON – 19 July 2017
Everyone at Dollarama has a great attitude including the manager when I worked there. Everyone got along very well and was able to complete tasks that they were given. After working there for a year, the only reason I left was due to school.
The most enjoyable part of my job is the people I work with because they are friendly and we help each other in our daily activities. The customer we meet everyday and customer service we provided is something we always look forward to help each of them.

Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Ontario – 17 July 2017
This is a great job for students or retirees. I wouldn't recommend for anyone in between. Management puts a lot of pressure and blame on us little people. The pay is way too small for the amount of work that is required. Things are constantly changing which makes it next to impossible to catch up especially after returning from a day off.
Shift goes by fast
Terrible pay, long hours, impossible expectations, mixed signals from management, etc etc etc

Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Peterborough, ON – 12 July 2017
Was working in the Peterborough area stores, as well after we were hired we were told those who didn't get assigned to the new store they opened would be moved to other stores as needed...
Instead of keeping heir end of the offer they terminated 20 of us from employment even though the other stores needed employee's, and the reason I know that is from other employee's who had been at these stores for a long time.
It was min wage, for 10 hours setting up a store to only find out that 20 of us were being fired instead of transferred to other stores, I would NOT recommend this company.
