AVS/Computer Specialist (Former Employee), Burnaby, BC – September 19, 2013
Pros: great benefits
Cons: not enough to do at times
Working in the departments at London Drugs was refreshing because every shift was an opportunity to learn something new. I went in with limited knowledge of what I would be selling, and left a top salesman who was able to help a customer fulfill their needs without batting an eye. Staff was easy to get along with and always outgoing. I felt that perhaps – more... the management could be a little too laid back at times. Work during the week was extremely slow, and sometimes it wasn't uncommon to not see any customers. – less

Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee), Red Deer, AB – April 24, 2013
Pros: working with some wonderful people.
Cons: the wage sucks!! you cannot support yourself let alone your family on only 10 bucks an hour!
I find that it is generally a great place to work most of the time. It's when the manager either doesn't have enough work to keep himself busy or he has had something happen that puts him into a bad mood and then he tends to take it out on the rest of us by being very snappy, short on patience, and chastizing us in front of our Peers and Customers.
My – more... Coworkers are fabulous to work with!! We all help each other out as much as possible and support each other when needed!
The hardest part is when you need a price check or an override sometimes it takes upwards 5-10 minutes for a manager or supervisor to come to help you out at the tell with it! It is extremely frustrating for us and the customer when you have to page 4 - 5 times to someone to help.
The most enjoyable part of the job is when I am able to help our customers find what they need. A happy customer brings repeat business and they tell all of their friends how happy they were with us as we had what they wanted and the Customer Service was fabulous!!!
The only thing that bothers me is the fact that the wage is so low!! $10.00 an hour and being only part-time does not feed or support our family! Instead of asking all of the part-time employees if they would like to work more hours or even hire them to work full-time, they hire more part-time employees instead and take hours away from everyone else by doing that. I understand that the company does not want to pay any benefits, however, Happier Employees make a much more pleasant atmosphere, and positive attitudes of Employees makes a world of differences! – less

Cashier (Former Employee), Grande Prairie, AB – January 31, 2013
A typical day at work consisted of running my check out and doing other tasks as needed. I learned wonderful customer service skills. While management was fun and easy to get along with for the most part, they were rather unapproachable which was difficult. Most of my co-workers were awesome. The hardest part of the job was selling add ons and the most – more... enjoyable part of the job was interacting with customers. – less
