Good Place To Work
Dollarama Associate (Former Employee), St. Albert, ABSeptember 9, 2013
Pros: great hours, great employees.
Cons: being on your feet all day.
All the employees are very kind, your day mostly spanned upon running the cash register, stocking, merchandising, cleaning, or helping customers. The management was fantastic, very understanding and kind. Hardest part of the job was being on your feet all day, and the most enjoyable part of the job was dealing with the public.

It's like working back in the days before computors, but can be fun at times.
Store Manager (Current Employee), Timmins, ONSeptember 4, 2013
Pros: the upper management respects everyone.
Cons: it's like your always on call, and theres a need for more up to date system.
We start the day with counting merchandise manually, followed by unpacking skids of assorted stock. You never know what your going to receive then it's to be stocked.
The hardest part is serving the customers, answering the phone and running back an forth to cash as you count and stock. This is just a few of the interruptions a associate encounters.
The – more... hardest part of the job is to motive people on minimum wage, and to keep good employees.
The thing I like the most is pleasing the customer and the merchandising. – less

Cashier and Customer Service (Current Employee), Scarborough, ONSeptember 2, 2013
Dollarama job gave over all experience of merchandising. I was not only cashier there but also sales associate. My manger teaches me every thing with her guidance and made me organised and smart problem solver. She also teaches me daily cash flow and accounts when I do closing with her. I really enjoyed working in dollarama especially giving customer – more... service to kids customers as its their favorite store. I use to work more in weekends and as the store is in mall its a lot busy in weekends so some times cleaning store in short time is hard but as I got every weekend practices it became easy. These job also made me familiar about multiculturalism as different cultured people work with me and we all work happily as team. – less

Productive and fun workplace
Cashier (Current Employee), Winnipeg, MBAugust 31, 2013
Pros: established company
Cons: unorganized
What I have learned about my work in a day to day basis is that I enjoy encountering and seeing different kinds of people, as a cashier it enjoys me to have a long line in my lane because I enjoy my work. The management have an organized system. My co-workers are very kind and helpful. The hardest part of the job is to see customers fighting in front – more... of you and not know how to react to their actions, and the most enjoyable part of the job is to interact fun and happy customers and know you made a good job in serving them. – less

Not the greatest, but it's better than most
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Saint Thomas, OnAugust 22, 2013
Pros: very laid back with certain key holders.
Cons: the drama that goes on.
the work that you do is very easy and can be done without much effort, but the company policies, and the manager like to play favorites and hires on too many so the people working there get hours cut. this job has taught me about working in a retail environment and how to use a cash register. the most enjoyable part of the job is putting out stock, – more... it makes the day go by so quick, but the worst part of the job is being main cashier, and standing on uncomfortable mats for six to eight hours. – less

Overall a good company to work for.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Hamilton, ONAugust 21, 2013
Working for Dollarama was a great experience. I worked day shift, normally from 9:00-5:00. The hours were reasonably flexible. Dollarama taught me how to manage stock in an organized manor. The management there was great, and I really respected her as a person, as well as a boss. My co-workers were easy to work with on a day-to-day basis. The hardest – more... part of my job was learning how to adjust when given too much stock in a small area. The most enjoyable part of my job was knowing that I was doing my part to keep the business running smoothly. – less

Cashier, Stocked Shelves (Former Employee), Brandon, MBAugust 19, 2013
Pros: good hours
Cons: not enough income
Working at Dollarama was fun, it was experience that was new to me, I really enjoyed working as a cashier and helping customers. A typical day was coming to work in the am, helping clean and prep the store making sure it was clean and everything was stocked. If i wasn't helping as a cashier I was stocking isles and making sure my assigned isles were – more... kept clean and organized. I also would do put backs. At the end of a cashier shift we would have to do cash counts and make sure we did cash drops during our shifts. – less

Productive work place
Retail-Cashier/Stocker (Current Employee), Terrace, BCAugust 16, 2013
Pros: always something to do
Cons: no chance at advancement
This is a quick and busy job. Working fast is optimal and keeping up with freight is a must, as we receive new stock almost daily. My coworkers are good. We do not see much of the other workers, as we keep pretty busy. I like that this job keeps me on my toes.

Busy but fun place to work
Key Holder (Former Employee), Toronto, ONAugust 16, 2013
Most of the times I was a cashier and I used to open and close the cashes and make sure all of the paper work was done properly and all the money balanced at the end. Clean the store and make sure store looks clean.
