Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 14 August 2017
felt safe while working here. went in did my job and went home. pay was not great but i enjoyed my job.some good people also, and a few good district managers. management is very unorganized. all in all was an alright place to work.
Management is very poor, nothing remains confidential, hours are not secure as one week you make have 30 and the following week you may have 10. There is a lack of employees therefore there is no space for replacements. Supervisor does not care for workers, simply transfers of fires employees when a problem arrises.
Key Holder/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – St. Paul, AB – 30 May 2017
very face paced place indeed, there was always something to do and to always keep busy throughout the work day. Freight was manageable and sometimes easy to get all the freight out onto the floor for merchandising.
the staff was great
the manager was no the nicest person, which made coming to work not so much fun.
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Ancaster, ON – 30 May 2017
I worked for Dollarama for a year and it was a great place to work while I was in school. However, since the company is only so big and only hires so many employees the hours are nowhere's near full-time and you would be better applying somewhere else if that is the type of work you are looking for.
Great place to work.
Only suitable for students looking for part-time work.

typically stocked shelves and worked cash when cash was getting backed up. I learned the way they stocked their shelves. management was fine schedule and paystubs always posted on time. there was nothing really hard about this job. most enjoyable part of job was customers, staff and always being busy,
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Almonte, ON – 26 May 2017
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/Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Woodstock, ON – 21 May 2017
work for me is busy. I am responsible for the for and candy isles so you can probably tell not much time for other things.we do go through lots of food and candy so I am busy filling and putting out new stock every day and making sure to rotate . Management is good and is always there to answer any questions I may have or to lend me a hand.hardest part of job isnever enough time to get everything done.. Most enjoyable part of the day is getting to talk to all our regular customers and meeting new ones.
