Receiving Clerk (Former Employee) – Cold Lake, AB – 19 July 2017
The owners do not respect their employees. It is such a negative place to work. They make their employees defend for them selves when it comes to an issue with a customer. They take off for 6 months of the year and fire staff when they make an error and have no one to ask for help.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 14 July 2017
Rona was a safe and loving work place, all employees were close and made the job a fun experience. Going to work wasn't something I hated while employed there, I would look forward to going there because everyone was like my second family.
Lead Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Lloydminster, AB – 22 June 2017
Mangers couldn't orchestra a water fall at the rear end of Niagara falls, if they were poo a dung beetle wouldn't take em home. They once met Stevie Wonder and even he said he could see they were terrible.
commis (Current Employee) – Laval, QC – 20 June 2017
Le travail au sein de la compagnie Rona est un apprentissage qui ne se termine jamais, à chaque quart de travail nous apprenons une nouvelles chose avec les questions des clients ou la formation des compagnies.
Inventory Control Assistant (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 18 June 2017
Good place to work, however, training is insufficient and communications between head office and sites is minimal. My position is inventory assistant but there is no one else in the inventory group so I am not assisting anyone.Other roles are more basic but again roles are skewed and there really seems to be no direction.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 18 June 2017
Incapable store management, half of which cant change a light bulb, unable to help customers or staff. At my old store the manager constantly sabotaged staff lowered moral and productivity. Wanted us to abandon real customers to answer phones and would get angry when told u were to busy with customer to answer phone or her 10 pages in 90 seconds. Brutally low wages as 80% of all jobs are part time with no benefits. Most jobs are minimum wage and short shifts. It should be illegal to operate like this. Head office constantly works against stores and is to lazy to add 10% to its bottom line by fixing its brutal inventory system. Things have only gotten worse under Lowes. Morale is very low. Dont work for this company unless desperate based on my 3 years there.
the store is only open 16 hours a day
poor wages and lousey shifts. crazy managers act like circus monkeys.
It was a good place to work, if you want to work retail.
Installed Sales Coordinator (Former Employee) – North Bay, ON – 4 June 2017
Busy days at work, steady customer flow. Learned a lot about retail, Sales, procedures. Management was supportive, although training lacked a bit. Friendly atmosphere. I enjoyed the customer service end of the position.
