Productive workplace that could improve on organization
Lumber Associate (Former Employee) – Southampton, ON – 12 October 2017
A typical day at work consists of assisting customers and loading their vehicles with their orders. I would also help with measurements and cutting of the lumber. Any down time that I would have in between customers would go towards organizing the in-stock lumber yard. I was able to have more insight on properly measuring and cutting as I hadn't had quite as much experience prior to Rona. The hardest part of the job is dealing with unexpected customer expectations in which what they request is not do-able. The most enjoyable part of my day on the other hand would consist of interaction between customers on a day to day basis and see the amount of impact I can have by just helping.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 19 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.
DZ DRIVER (Former Employee) – Waterdown, ON – 4 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!.
Sales (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 27 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.
Sale Associate (Former Employee) – Gatineau, QC – 23 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...
Price label management (Former Employee) – London, ON – 18 September 2017
A great job with many things to Learn. We did a lot of after work activities. It was nice to have a second family. We also did a lot for the community. Clean ups. Helped with the aftermath of the goderich tornado.
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.
Ancien employé (Former Employee) – Saint-Félix-de-Valois, QC – 28 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.
Retail/Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 24 August 2017
Since the very beginning,Rona has been driven by the values that guide each and every decision they make, large or small. RONA is synonymous with a job well done. They are also a team driven by a desire to succeed, with a healthy mix of diligence, simplicity and efficiency. As proactive and results-oriented people, they go to great lengths to ensure each of our clients’ projects is a complete success.
Merchandising Assistant (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 14 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.
