Disorganized company where hope goes to die
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON19 October 2017
Worked with the company for a long time and during those years the company got cheaper and cheaper. It went from having pizza on promotion days and christmas dinner at a banquet hall to no free food and being asked to pay for water. There was no staff appreciation and it was the most disorganized managment team with the store manager feeding people lies and only worrying about customers and treating employees like garbage. If you want to work somewhere where you become less motivated and have your dignity and respect be shattered by the managment team this is the place to be. And if you chose to complan, they will ignore it and tell you that problem will be fixed, which it doesn't.
Pros
Great employees to work with
Cons
Cheap company with no employee apprecation

DZ DRIVER (Former Employee) –  Waterdown, ON4 October 2017
Great places through out the chain. Contractors are 50/50 personality wise so be prepared to be yelled at a lot for being late at 7am. you learn your the only one that knows the rules of the road. Management depends on who you get. customers were great!.
Pros
good team
Cons
first to show and last to leave.

Decent place to work
Sales (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON27 September 2017
Day would include helping customers, stocking materials, and working on any displays that needed to be made. Most of the staff was very friendly, but work would usually never be busy. This was the RONA that was on Queen street in Brampton that closed a couple of years ago.

Hard Work
Sale Associate (Former Employee) –  Gatineau, QC23 September 2017
Underpaid for the work you do depending on the department, no comissions even with record breaking sales, no incentives. Most poeple that work there are overqualified and underpaid which bring a somber ambiance of uselessness...

Management on the down turn
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB5 September 2017
Too many heads not enough arms.
That's the only way i can describe my work experience with this company. The managers would dictate orders one after another (typically different then the last), this would lead to confusion amongst employees in various departments.
Pros

Environnement de travail déplorable.
Ancien employé (Former Employee) –  Saint-Félix-de-Valois, QC28 August 2017
L'environnement de travail est désagréable. Le DG fonctionne par favoritisme. Il parle auX employés d'une façon peu chalande et leur manque de respect. Il refuse toute commandite même ceux des pompiers. Il sacre toujours après ses employés, c'est à se demander si les employés s'appelle "criss" et "tabarnak". Le service est minable, les clients peuvent attendre 30 minutes dans la cours avant d'être servis, ils finissent souvent par se servir aux mêmes. Les employés ne font que parler entre eux, zéro service à la clientèle. La dame de l'administration ne fait aucunement le suivi des formations, donc les employés ne sont pas former pour leurs postes. C'est excessivement long aux caisses. Je ne recommande pas le Rona de st-felix pour travailler ni pour acheter.

favouritism and stressful
Merchandising Assistant (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB14 August 2017
There is a lot of favoritism in upper management. If you are not a favorite it is hard to get time off, you are pressured with lists to have done in a ridiculously short amount of time. it is very stressful to go into work at this company.
Pros
full time, some good people, occasional lunches
Cons
no overtime at all, management
