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.

I think it's a great first job as cash is easy to work and daily tasks teach great time management. Staff was great to work with. Very fast pace when the store gets busy and customers ar lining up at cash.
Cash is easy to work
Breaks and meals are very short, management was is very keen on detail and too picky.
Store Associate (Former Employee) – Richmond Hill, ON – 25 May 2017
A typical day at Dollarama consitsed of stalking shelves, assisting customers, occasionally working the cash register and clean up by the end of the day. I learned a lot about customer service and organization. The people at Dollarama were especially fantastic and we became one big family in just a couple of days. The hardest part of the job would had to have been some of the difficult customers that would walk in through the store. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with great people and helping others.
Employed Full Time (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 24 May 2017
I enjoyed working here, it was a great way to socialize and the work was easy and fun. I had a great boss but there was very strict rules when it came to vacation and sick time, so you could not really do anything in the summer or go anywhere because it would be an issue. And sometimes there would be no shifts so the pay was unstable. But I did work there for over 4 years and enjoyed it.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – 24 May 2017
The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting new people and making new friends, learning how to stock shelfs and new things coming in store. the hardest part of the job was figuring out where somethings are to tell the customers.

Cashier (Former Employee) – London, ON – 17 May 2017
The co-workers that i worked with were nice, kind people .. The only thing i disapproved of was being told i was going to be staying with the company full time and being put to part time and then laid off as they had over hired employers
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – London, ON – 15 May 2017
It's a steading and busy place with lots of customers ... New freight going out at all times ... Learned new tasks everyday ... Hardest part is to make room for new items, and to make sure that all new items are represented ... The most enjoyable part is that you get to meet some great people and make some really good friends along the way.
Keyholder (Current Employee) – Kamloops, BC – 12 May 2017
I love this job primarily for the people, but the job itself is awful. The amount of hours we're allowed to use is given to us by head office and is never nearly enough. As a keyholder, I make a dollar more than minimum wage and no other raises are given, except for a 10 cent raise they supposedly give every year but refuse to give me. They send ridiculous amounts of one particular item that will then just sit in the back for months and take up storage space because they don't know how to send proper amounts of stock. The company is so cheap that the employees suffer and most of the good ones end up leaving. Our store in particular has a major theft problem, yet all they do to try and "fix" it is install cameras in our back room area, make sure we check employees bags every time they leave the store, make sure that we keep a receipt for our items and that they are signed (if they are not, they will remove the item from you). They have estimated that $800 leaves the store every day in theft from customers, yet won't give us an LPO and still continue to heavily survey the staff. This job is alright to get by for a little, but becomes very tiresome, very quickly.
Lack of hours, lack of proper pay, lack of higher ups caring
Cashier (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 11 May 2017
I had gotten a job here at just the right time. It was tough at first as I was given an overnight shift. A month of graveyard shift was difficult but I got threw it. Then I was given a day shift which made things easier. It was a fun place to work.
