In enjoyed working with all walks of life, most people were pleasant and humorous. Met a lot of friends that I still keep in contact with and need to get back into the part time job situation. I am still seeking for a full time job and work part time would be great again.

Rexall upper staff / management are great people. Free staff buffet every Oilers game was good too. Wages were too low, and sometimes you have to work through your breaks..no break. Lack of communication made working here a bit difficult also.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 20 April 2016
intermission during the oilers games was very busy.you were non stop and all other co workers were there to help each other and it made things very easy in such a busy place. I learned that I really enjoy working in a busy environment and try and achieve my fast sales.
Enjoyable, Efficient and Energetic place to work for.
Food Prep/Stocking (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 1 April 2016
Everyday was completely different because of the station changes during events, such as hockey or concerts. The events that were worked were often fast paced and hectic, however; the management were amazing and efficient which made the job manageable and fun. As a food prep, I worked in the many stations that they had which taught me to learn and mange the many tasks that I had to complete and that these tasks would change from day to day. During my time at Rexall, I learned that working can be fun and exciting as long as there is a common goal that everyone wants to complete, rather then forced completion.
Great management and outgoing co-workers.
Hectic and fast paced environment left little time to think.

Rexall dose have a fun atmosphere to work in with hockey Games and other fun events and they do offer free buffets during Oilers games how ever the food is sub par .
there are alot of cons to this place
1 u must cover all tattoos weather they are on your hand, neck, arms or anywhere else that is visible (apparently big bright blue band aids are better to look at then the tattoo underneath i can see covering something inappropriate given the family environment )
2 no facial piercings they must be removed (apparently a hole in the lip or nose or eyebrow is better looking then a nice respectable and tasteful piece of jewelry)
u are told about these guidelines during an interview but if u need the job u ether agree to comply or u keep looking
and you do not get many hours 15 hours a week if u are lucky and there is events
and if u travel by ets make sure u can make it home after 11 because they will not accommodate you my last bus out of northgate is at 11 45 and to make that bus i needed to be at the coliseum station at 10;20 to catch the bus to get to northgate on time they could not accommodate that and would have left me stranded because of this i was forced to quite only amonth in to employmant
Shipper/Receiver (Former Employee) – Shipper/Porter – 25 February 2016

Alcohol Service Team (AST) (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 24 February 2015
Through this work experience i learned various things; crowd control and guest services, alcohol management instructions. On game days we were fed from a buffet. I was disgruntled with coworkers as they were untrustworthy and unreliable. Which would coincide with a difficult asset of the job along with dealing with the mass crowds of people that would fill the building regularly.
Part-Time Cashier (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 5 February 2015
typical work shift consists of being punctual, and always pushing personal life aside to give the best quality experience for customers. I have learned to be aware of my surroundings, communication with team mates especially if the work space is small, my co-workers are good although I do not like being switched around from concession to concession because most co-workers (which vary in age) are harder to work with
Hardest part of the job is having too stand constantly for hours, especially when your not able to take a break because of preparations for different waves of crowds (some are busier than others)
Most enjoyable part of the job is being able to meet all types of people, and working in a diverse environment. .
buffet for staff, uniforms, lockers, working with people from all walks of life, easy sechdules
long hours, little sitting breaks, dealing with rude customers, evening shifts
fast and at time demanding.friendly staff and customer
Cashier (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 27 December 2014
Bussy days are my typical day at work. I am learning how to serve customers and how to cooperate with staff. in our store it is illegal to sell beer to under 18s.our manager is very understanding person, fast and clever.my co-workers are very helpful. the hardest part of the job is knowing what we sell in the store. serving customer is what makes me happy.
