Inventory Control Assistant (Former Employee) – Windsor, Ontario – 4 January 2014
Every day you learned something new - new skills for retail and customer service. The management team was very hands on and encouraging. My co-workers were very knowledgeable and very willing to share their knowledge so no matter what department you worked in you always learned more. The hardest part of the job was when we ran out of stock and the best part was being able to order the product in or have it transferred in. Also the fact that due to a lot of hard work and co-operation from all staff we were able to skip a physical inventory 2 years in a row.
gardener (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 2 May 2017
Overall the job was convenient for a summer student, however would not recommend as a permanent position. While I did not come into conflict with the management, I noticed that they would be very hypocritical and petty about break times. For example a manager would have a "chat" with one of the employees for being 1 minute over on the fifteen minute break.
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 2 May 2017
After a certain point in time, managers would staff less and less people in order to save hours in their budgets but it would hurt the customer service. Many complaints were received from customers about the staffing. (i.e.one staff member in a large department). This affected the morale of the staff and made the environment less comfortable.
Co-op placement (Former Employee) – London, ON – 28 April 2017
When working at Rona, it was very relaxed and the employee's were very nice and easy to get along with! I would generally come in and put my things in my locker, and from there I would go to flooring department where I would help customers what they were looking for and learning how to search items on the computer in certain departments. The best part about the job was getting to help customers find what they are looking for and making sure they are satisfied \s well as learning new things about flooring that might become useful in the future. I had a great time doing my co-op there and would look forward to working there any day!
Cashier (Former Employee) – Leamington, ON – 28 April 2017
I worked at Rona in Leamington for a couple months, then i quit, it was awful!! First of all there is a woman that is the (apparently the head cashier) She likes to speak to people in a demeaning manner, has no patients for training, is on a power trip!! No service desk so all returns come to cashiers Training is very poor Pay is not enough for what they want you to do!! Would not recommend this place to work
CSA (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 25 April 2017
I was a CSA so I had a variety of responsibilities from collecting cart from the shelters and bringing them inside to working on the cash resgester. Usually, I learned various new things about home maintenance and skills like painting and gardening. The management was kind of sloppy, the managers were not very involved but we had a good team to make up for that.
voltigeur (Former Employee) – Charlemagne, QC – 20 April 2017
90% de votre journée ce passe dehors à rentrer les chariot et aider les clients à mettre leur matériels dans leurs autos. L'aspect de sécurité seront appris durant votre formation. Le plus difficile est de soulevé des charges lourdes
Friendly workplace with a knowlegeable service team.
Cashier/Lumber Yard (Former Employee) – Sault Ste. Marie, ON – 14 April 2017
Smaller workplace and warehouse compared to competitors. This leads to less product choices overall but a much more personal experience for customers. This workplace has a focus on service quality over product quantity.
