Rona is good to their employees
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Edmonton, ABJanuary 16, 2014
I have worked for Rona a long time we are co-workers but we are family. A typical day is walk in greet everyone with a Good Morning and plan my day what has to be done and proceed while I am greeting customers and helping them with their needs to get their projects done clean the work area if it needs it, I have always got along with management as I – more... tell the truth and I respect their position. I think the hardest part of my job would be not to get what the customer was hoping for. I like the people I work with and hearing what is going on in their lives if there is hardship I ask if I can help if they are happy and good things are coming there way then I am happy for them. This is the way I am. – less

Productive learning and working environment
Inventory Control Assistant (Former Employee), Windsor, OntarioJanuary 4, 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 – more... 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. – less

Needs to grow up and pick up the slack
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Fort McMurray, ABAugust 29, 2013
Pros: flexible hours, occasional staff events, amazing coworkers
Cons: sporadic shifts, unprofessional management, lack of training
Working for RONA definitely has its benefits, such as flexible hours and friendly faces, but sadly it has more cons than pros. In-store management does its best to keep everything in order and organised, and it has slowly improved over recent events, but still needs to put more effort into their job. about half the managers push aside the backbone ethics – more... of being a manager and disregard what their job actually is. On occasion, I've had customers ask me how they've managed to stay in the managerial position, where the associates can handle most situations better than they can. Even with internal affairs, there is slight favoritism and judgmental decision making that has subjected certain individuals with unnecessary inconveniences and makes many of my coworkers, both new and veteran, and myself want to quit and never look back.

As most jobs in town have a high turnover rate, there is also a huge lack in training for any new hires for the company. After orientation, they are simply thrown onto the floor and expect the senior associates to train them. There is training available, but its on a single, older computer that people must make time for in order to learn anything of use. Since there is a lack of coverage, its rare to see anyone wiping the dust off the old beast to learn what they should've known before branding the RONA name.

Its sad to see RONA in this state, considering how much potential is being wasted through various outputs. I wish to see RONA get its act together, grow up, and actually shine in this boomtown, the way it should be. – less

Decent job with fair wage
Night Shift Merchandiser (Former Employee), Winnipeg, MBAugust 20, 2013
Pros: fair breaks, easy work, high safety standards
Cons: management doesn't care about night crew, hours cut back often
Worked here for over a year with what I thought was a very good work ethic. But after 13 months with no raise and getting full time hours cut from 40 to 37 I had to leave and find something better. Co-workers were great but management and staff are hard to communicate with working over nights.

A learning experience.
Inventory Control Assistant (Former Employee), Squamish, BCAugust 14, 2013
Pros: highly experienced and professional co-workers, challenging and satisfying daily tasks, and family friendly hours.
Cons: an across the board approach to very distinct regional needs.
Working at Rona was my favourite job. I was challenged daily and I felt valued for my contributions and abilities to solve problems and help my co-workers and customers.

My co-workers were very experienced and never hesitated to help, whether it was a complex building job or a simple question needing an answer.

The hardest part of the job was not – more... the work, but maintaining morale in a rapidly growing corporation. That being said, the store did its best to provide its customers with the best service possible. – less

Cashier (Former Employee), Whitby, ONAugust 2, 2013
Pros: nice people to work with!
Cons: management
I had a great time working at Rona, but some of the management wasn't that great. I had one manager "after" me, she didn't like how I would always ask for help and that I didn't show up for my "shifts". Sometimes I would check to see if I had any shifts and there would be none for the next day. The day came and there she was calling me saying that I – more... didn't show up for my shift that start at a certain time. Didn't seem right, I lost the job because of that!! – less
