Great place to work
Cashier/Clerk (Former Employee), Windsor, NSJuly 11, 2015
Pros: The Customers
Cons: Not working there
It was a great place to work. Waiting on customers, stocking shelves, cleaning the store to make it appealing for customers to shop (Who wants to buy something with dust on it?) The management was fair and great to help out with scheduling around family events(Doctor appointments and spouses work hours) I miss my co-workers and customers the most that is the hardest part of the job. The most enjoyable part of the job is the customers.

Outdated Retail Tequniques
Sales Associate/ Cashier (Former Employee), Surrey, BCApril 11, 2015
Pros: Great Owner
Cons: Methedone Clinic
A very small and heard headed staff. This Pharmasave caters to Methedone patients as well as sells lottery so it is sometimes more hectic than a Pub. If you can handle the environment then I suggest tackling it, but it's not a very good paying job and there is zero advancement opportunities. Suits someone a little older. Most likely a Male.

Cashier/ Customer Service (Former Employee), Victoria, B.C.February 17, 2015
Pros: at christmas for the week prior they would bring in lunch for us.
I would start my day by checking my float for my shift, count the lotto. If I happened to be in the Post-office I would count the float, make sure the Express and Priority Mail envelopes were out to be seen and get stamps out.
I enjoyed working with all my co-workers, they were great people to work with.
The most enjoyable part of my job was dealing with the customers daily.

Pharmasave
Cashier (Former Employee), SydneyJanuary 5, 2015
Pros: great co-workers
Cons: pay roll
While employed at Pharmasave as a cashier I was responsible for submitting bill payments, calling other Pharmasave stores to check on items for costumers, setting up lottery tickets, keeping my register and other areas of the store tidy, doing out-dates on merchandise that was about too expire and re-stocking the selves with fresh merchandise. I thoroughly enjoyed working as a cashier but I am also open to trying new positions and departments.

Cashier (Former Employee), Scarborough, ONNovember 26, 2014
I liked working at pharmasave. It was very busy pharmacy everyday. A typical started with filing rest of the prescription from previous day, filling prescription orders, collecting patients information about filling prescription. at the end of shift balancing the cash register.
I learnt alot from that work environment as it was very busy pharmacy. Management and co-workers were very co-operative.The most enjoyable part of the job was filling prescription and the hardest part was filing very old prescprtion from previous years.

Great place for students or people looking for a laid back work environment
Customer Service/Cashier (Current Employee), Glace Bay, NSAugust 16, 2014
Pros: great staff and management
Cons: occasional short 4 hour shifts
A typical day at work would include waiting on customers, basic problem solving, ordering/transferring/putting out stock, dusting shelves/products.
I learned how to order/transfer/receive inventory, sell Atlantic Lottery, and how to deal with all types of customers.
Management is great, especially with students. They are good for working around appointments, school related activities such as sports or exams, or if you may need time off.
The hardest part of the job would be pleasing the customers, other than that this job, although it keeps you busy, is fairly easy.
To me the most enjoyable part of the job is the work environment. Everybody gets along and works together to achieve the higher goal. They are very customer satisfaction oriented.

Cashier - serving customers (Current Employee), Gananoque, ONJune 16, 2014
Pros: working with others
Cons: occasional negativity
I work either cash or merchandising and I have learnt how to work well with customers. My co workers are nice people. The hardest part of my job is having to make sure you finish your lists that are assigned and help customers, but I make sure it all works out. I enjoy being able to interact with others.

Supervisor RPO/Assistant to Pharmacist (Former Employee), Victoria, BCMay 18, 2014
Pros: best staff and customers!! could never ask for a better group of people to work with and for.
Cons: lunch hours were not always followed. breaks sometimes conflicted with demand of work.
Moving up into a management role was the high light of my career there. Although it was for the RPO I took on more challenges for Pharmasave. I was giving tasks that not only encouraged me but allowed me to know where I stood with the company and the owners.
Aside from handling day to day tasks, I was very much apart of the hiring process and training of staff. This for me was, along with managing time/customers, the most enjoyable part of my time there. Getting a feel of how your co-workers work individually, and with a team is important. At the end of the day they are apart of your life, your team. It needs have a complete balance of competence and drive.
