Pros: interaction with customers is always entertaining
Cons: excessive paperwork counting stock daily, low hours for regular staff
Dollarama pays minimum wage for regular staff
Key holders make a little more than that, and are part time only.
Benefits are for full time employees, only medical no dental.
Assistant Managers make a little more than key holders about $12.50 an hour with full time hours, and bonuses based on making budget/target etc. effective after 1 yr of store open, and 6 months with a full time employee status (full time status starts after 3 month probationary period)
Store Managers make more with same bonus structure but with higher percent payout.
Raises for Assistant and Store managers is based on your yearly review (which takes place up to 6 months after the yr end)
They do give a x-mas bonus, it's not fantastic, but at least it's something!
They do have a pension plan that you can contribute to if you wish to do so.
They have high expectations with performance and time frames, the only computerized systems are the punch clocks, and registers. They do not have a Point Of Sale system otherwise, everything is done on paper and by fax. It is a very physically demanding job, with a lot of latter work and lifting boxes over your head consistently on a daily basis.
The best part of the job is the staff, and customers!
