Productive and fun work place
Cashier (Current Employee), Essa Road, Barrie, OnApril 1, 2014
Pros: excellent staff to work with
Cons: no break unless you work a five hour shift (15 min.), or eight hour (30 min.)
A day at work consists of a very busy shift. Excellent customer service is provided no matter how the day is going. I usually learn about one new item that the store has received. Management is very fun to work with as well as co-workers. The hardest part of the job is knowing every bar code and items that are located within the store as it has a very – more... large inventory. The most enjoyable part of the job is dealing with all of the friendly customers by making sure their shopping experience is a good one. – less

Fun place to work, great people.
Merchandiser (Former Employee), ottawa ontarioMarch 17, 2014
Pros: getting to see what new products were out.
Cons: not getting enough hours, and the store closing.
Every morning I would punch in, go into the "warehouse" and grab a dolly of boxes to be put onto the shelves. I was taught how to "face" an isle. I was taught to work a cash register. And how to properly stock a shelf. The management team was great.
Hardest part of the job was only when I first started. Getting to know everything at once. Most enjoyable – more... part was working on the floor, dealing with customers and being first to see what new products were coming out. – less

A typical day at work
Part Time Customer Service/Cashier (Current Employee), Scarborough, ONMarch 6, 2014
Pros: meeting good people
Cons: shot notice for shift attendance
A typical day at work in dollarama consists of us setting up cash and cleaning the store first thing in the morning, making sure nothing out of place. once the store opens if your on cash you stalk the gum and chocolates. we write up damages and dispose of them, when all that is done we refill the coolers and glasses, then we just assist customers. – more... ringing in purchases and bagging them.
if your working on the floor, you stock the shelves and hooks, lift relatively heavy things, organize the back room.

the most enjoyable part of the job for me was conversing with the customers, and im just happy to work in general. – less

Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Burlington, ONMarch 2, 2014
Yes, the job is very physical and you'll find yourself hauling boxes all day.

And you'll do it for close to minimum wage.
