I've met some wonderful people.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), London,onNovember 10, 2014
Pros: it's mostly days and every other weekend off.
Cons: training could be better.
It;s a full day for sure. I like the fact that every day is different. My job includes everything from doing cash to going into the office and doing paperwork. I mostly enjoy interacting with the customers and helping them out.

Fun Place To Work.
Store Team Member (Former Employee), Scarborough, ONNovember 9, 2014
Very Fun Place To Work-new stock would come in for the next holiday and we would wear the decor,like wigs for St. Patricks day, or masks for halloween. I found it to be a very fun and constructive place to work.
I met a variety of people working at dollarama because i was sent to many locations for many different things such as inventory and store set – more... up, I was offered a key holder position but because of location I couldnt except. – less

Great first time job.
Cashier (Former Employee), Miramichi, NBNovember 8, 2014
Pros: great hours
Co-workers were amazingly friendly; but the district manager was somewhat intimidating, which was to be expected.
The hours were amazingly flexible and worked around school events and graduation events.
Always being on cash with every shift was very hard on the back and feet, and I was never placed on the floor for stocking shelves when it was requested. – more... Hours were changed almost daily; one has to call in daily to know of the next shift.

When the Dollarama was closing in the Miramichi Mall, we received a cake from the Superstore on the other side of the mall that read "Thank You". This was really great! – less

productive and fun
Cashier (Current Employee), Aurora, ONNovember 6, 2014
I love working at Dollarama, My typical day at work would be either being a cashier or on floor. I don't have a problem with any employees i haven learned many things such as dealing with the cash register and if any customers have any problems or concerns how to deal with it and make sure they got the help they needed. The hardest part with this job – more... was stock and reading labels and where stuff went but i enjoy working with everyone they are such nice friendly employees. – less

Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee), Bowmanville, ONOctober 24, 2014
Cons: rude customers
I loved my job at Dollarama. I'd go in, and either open or close the store, and then stand on the first cash for the rest of the day. I learned how to use a cash register and stock shelves neatly.

My managment and co-workers were always very friendly, although sometimes I felt intimidated and was spoken down to by one member of management.

Hardest – more... part about the job was standing around all day, your legs would get tired, sore, and by the end of the night I often found I was miserable.

The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting so many wonderful people. – less

Cashier/Floor worker (Current Employee), Toronto, ONOctober 20, 2014
A productive workplace, with a friendly atmosphere. The customers can be difficult to work with at times, but nothing a little experience in customer service can't resolve.

Cashier (Former Employee), Hamilton, ONOctober 13, 2014
I enjoyed this job the most because I liked all aspects of the job but the location closed down. I was a cashier and dealt with customers and handled money. They provided flexible hours and would work around me.

Former Cashier and Produce Clerk (Former Employee), Pickering, ONOctober 13, 2014
Pros: easy tasks, positive reinforcement was always given out, great group of people to work with, etc.

My experience with working at Dollarama was amazing. I worked with great enthusiastic, welcoming, social, group of employees. Everyone was always willing to help each other and our customers. We always had people coming back giving compliments and motivation to keep working harder and better. There is nothing I can complain about working at Dollarama.
