My review of Great Canadian Dollar Store
Customer Service Representative/Store Manager (Former Employee), Cambridge, ONOctober 9, 2014
Pros: close to home, reasonable hours
Cons: store was closed
My time at the Dollar store was the best expirence ever. I was hired as Key holder. I opened / closed store. I would do Merchanising from scratch. Did window displays. I would run cash and within a year I was Asst. Store Manager. I would handle all store duties from doing Bank deposits to Ordering product to handleing co-workers concerns and schedules.

I – more... learned about markups as well as ordering.

My manager was great to work for. he listened to my ideas and concerns.

And my co-workers were helpful. In a management position I had a good working relationship with my co-workers

The hardest part of this job was not taking it home. I found I would be thinking of work related ideas or concerns to address the next day.

The best part??? was the feeling of satisfaction at the end of the day that some how I made a difference to my customers that day – less

Manager (Former Employee), Woodstock, ONSeptember 16, 2012
Pros: wonderful company to work for..family run with family first values
Cons: not enough franchises in my area to transfer to when others closed down
Even though each day started out with the same job requirements it would always end up with new experiences..the staff, the customers, the sales reps, head office would add to the diversity of the workday. It was not always good but it would be a learning experience, this is what I would love..being abe to figure out how to deal with new dilemas I loved – more... my staff, the owner of the franchise, the territory manager, and head office. This company was the best to work for..I just wish the locations didn't have to close – less
