Supervisor (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 30 September 2017
It was an amazing first job, the management was amazing and the staff was like a happy family. The job taught me how to deal with people and their requests and how to do so in a proper workforce manner.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 22 September 2017
Only worked there for 2 months but that manager was really nice and helpful, there have been changes since I've last been there. The job was good I only worked 2 nights a week so there isn't much to comment on. Average job
It is a productive & fast pace retail with a great team.
Pharmacy Assistant (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 8 September 2017
I had the opportunity to work with 2 of our full time pharmacist as well as part time and relief pharmacists. It is a fast pace retail with productivity. We have a great teamwork. Our schedules are flexible. We enjoy employee discount. At times it can be very stressful but at the same time a fun place to work.
Not a happy place to work.Managers are always asking too much of staff.
Pharmacy Assistant (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 7 September 2017
There is not enough staff ever in our store. When I left my position on 2 occasions they replaced me with 2 full time people. Doesn't seem fair. Prescription count went way down and they still kept the 2 full time people in both locations. Basically, I was burned out and got very sick.
Can't think of any, too bad.
Work 6 hrs. before you even get a lunch/dinner break??
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) – Kanata, ON – 24 August 2017
Corporate management was very cookie-cutter oriented and did not make allowances for individual locations to cater to their customers or circumstances. A good career for staff being unionized. For store management too many hours per week required to complete tasks required .
Front shop (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 5 August 2017
Disorganized management and company. Negative environment, high turnover. Constantly slashing hours. Not enough staff to serve customers properly or complete jobs. Management belittles employees. No place to advance. Managers turnover frequently. Overall unstable environment, high stress. Customers are nice and feel sorry for them as they are not being looked after properly.
Chashier (Former Employee) – Pickering, ON – 13 July 2017
Typical day at work consist of repetitive list of tasks, stock, face, tag nights, finding expired products and cashing people out. Great customers. Management are good. Great coworkers. A great part-time job for someone to learn customer service. Though our company have gone through some tough changes, there are lack of hours for part timers to gain. Still don't know what the company goals are. No full time unless you are in management. There are room to grow if retail is your career choice. Unionized work place, shifts and hours are given by senoirty, hourly pay is minimum wage, good discounts.
good discount, room to grow if you want to stick with retail.
Little hours, can not get full time unless you are in management, unionized (work shifts and hours are by senoirty)
Cashier (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 18 June 2017
Honestly i used to love working here with my previous 2 managers, both of them were amazing, got along perfectly with everyone at work, everyone used to work together and no one ever had to go a full day without a break or managers would buy everyone a drink, costumers are mostly and older crowed still very quiet and nice to work at ! this is all until now we got a new manager and shes not the greatest , shell have one person working on cash and floor for 9 or 10 hours running back and foth without a break. she has people closing and opening alone without backup! it has became a bad environment to work in.
