Have nothing good to say about working for lawtons
Cosmetician (Former Employee) – Halifax, NS – 19 September 2017
This place was the worst place of employement for me .. my cosmetic manager was very two faced and never spoke about me kindly . Did not treat me with any respect. Would talk about me to other employees on the floor . I worked as a beauty advisor. I ended up having to call human resources on her . I was to the point where I had to force myself to go there everyday until I found other employment..But it honestly made things worse lol . I would not recommend working for Lawson's ... pay is terrible for all the tasks u do as a cosmetician. And the employee discount is no better lol

Customer Service (Former Employee) – Musquodoboit Harbour, NS – 20 June 2017
I worked at a small Lawtons and it was an easy job, not really exciting but close to home and the people were nice. The store had plenty of things to do but late at night it tended to be long and boring. Overall it was nice.
The customers and the actual job part of working here was pretty good. Fast paced and busy with lots of customer service. But dealing with coworkers that mostly want to talk behind each other's back is stressful and makes it hard to put in 100% at the actual job.
- overall benefits are great - christmas bonus is great - all employees worked with are amazing and friendly - The work apparel is comfortable and appropriate - I have learned many things about working with people, working in a fast paste environment
Cashier (Former Employee) – Placentia Bay, NL – 13 April 2016
The job was very hands on, I was constantly on my toes with helping costumers and stocking shelves. The fast pace of the job kept me intellectually stimulated and the shifts seemed to fly by. My co-workers and Manager were fun to work with.
enjoyable people, relaxed workplace, non stressful
Supervisor/Cashier (Current Employee) – Halifax, NS – 3 March 2016
A typical day at work would consist of keeping the store to its standards by stocking/facing the store, managing the money in the safe and counting employers tills. At the end of the night i was faced with paperwork that needed to be taken care of and settle every departments tills and have all the money in the safe at the end of the night. I learned how to deal with people and supervise a retailing store.I didn't really think of the job being hard because you got into a routine after awhile. The most enjoyable part of the job was the employees since they were all typically young and i got along with them
CUSTOMER SERVICE ASSISTANT (Current Employee) – Halifax, NS – 18 August 2015
The work is enjoyable. I do cash/ debit transactions, shelf stocking, price files and expiry checks, credit returns etc. A typical day depends on if you are working on the sales floor or cash. Cash will handle transactions, credit returns, price files and expiry checks. Floor will cover price files and expiry checks, shelf stocking, display set up etc. Management is poor. I think they need to practice informal resolution more often and treat all employees equally. it feels to me as if there is some favouritism happening here. My co workers are great. Aside from the odd person here or there. the most enjoyable part of my job is that i mostly do day shifts. the hardest part is dealing with management.
