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

Rona, the Home and Builders Store
Commercial Sales (Current Employee), Waterdown, ONJune 2, 2013
Pros: great staff and customers
Cons: incosistent shceduling, nights and weekends irregular
Rona is a great place to work. A typical day would include the order taking for Contractors for goods taken cash and carry as well as deliveries. Looking at each project and applying pricing that will secure the sale for the division. We field many phone calls about tool rentals, pricing, deliveries , etc. I work with a dynamic group of co workers an – more... managers who all support each other when very busy and with our decision making. The most difficult thing with the job is the short notice shedules and working 2 nights and weekends , making it difficut to schedule personal things or maintain a consistent flow with family obligations. What I do enjoy about my job is the ability to develop long lasting Contractor relationships and feel like I am an integral part of their purchasing and success for each of their jobs. – less

a bit monotonous
Electrical department sales (Former Employee), Pierrefonds, QCApril 30, 2013
Pros: long lunch, discount, good managment
Cons: boring
i work for Rona in montreal for a year. Overall i enjoyed the time. The only down side of working for rona is at least in my department, the job got a bit boring. Most of your time is filling and organizing the merchendise. For a part time job it was ok but i couldn't see myself working full time at rona. The pay was a bit on the low side but apart – more... from that it was great. The managment was good, long lunch, discount on product.... overall its great first job but not a good idea for a full time employment. – less

Productive workplace
Part-time cashier (Former Employee), Waterdown, ONApril 15, 2013
- Co-workers made it enjoyable to work with
- hardest part of the job is dealing with customers that may think that everything can happen with a snap of the fingers
- management definitely tries to work with you as a part time employee to get enough hours and get time off when needed.

Commis / vendeur rayon plomberie (Former Employee), Québec, QCJanuary 10, 2013
The team is incredible, you learn to cope with people. You learn a lot about materials and products. You also learn alot from the professionals that work there. the management is awsome, they give you the hours you need to fit to your schedule as a student. Co-workers are very friendly I get along very well with the others. The job itself is not very – more... difficult and does not require alot of physical skills. The hardest part of the job is the computers if your not too good with them. – less

Poorly Managed
Cash Supervisor/Customer Service Desk (Former Employee), Toronto, ONNovember 12, 2012
Pros: opportunity for advancement, good training programs
Cons: low employee involvement equaled low employee morale
No one here cares to compete with Big Home Box stores. Efforts are only focused on surviving. Rarely employee input was taken, even that with negative stares and reactions. Employee empowerment and involvement would have made this a great place to work. When the economic crisis happened, they downsized and reduced hours while other competitors did the – more... opposite and invested. I remember the days when we had few employees scheduled to help customers and the excuse was there are no customers. This was true from time to time but it is also true that many a times when there were many customers looking for help and there was only one associate to help in any given department. Those customers waiting for help, they left. This is how you lose customers and lose customer loyalty to stores such as Lowe's and The Home Depot. – less

Being a small company, the workplace was a relaxed, but productive atmosphere.
Roof Truss Builder (Former Employee), Port Hope, ONOctober 16, 2012
Pros: productivity levels up -meant we got fridays off early.
Cons: working with employees much younger than myself, them not caring about the quality of their work, disrespecting management. they were there just for the paycheque.
A typical day at work required me to be on my feet on concrete
floors for long hours. We worked 10 hour shifts. The work ethics
such as getting along with my co-workers and working as a group at
various tables. We had to resolve problems to fit our customers needs.

At various times, I was required to act as shift Leadhand for the evening shift. I not – more... only made sure the customer got his order on
time, I had the responsibility to oversee my co-workers and make sure the order was not only completed, but at the same time, gain the respect of myfellow co-workers to make sure the order wa done right to the customers specifications.

Management was quite co-operative and supportive. I got along
well with my department supervisor. He will be more than happy
to provide you with an excellent reference when I get hired. He
will be quite willing to let you know I'm a team player and excellent
and conscientious worker. – less

Sales Clerk (Former Employee), North Bay, ONSeptember 24, 2012
Pros: the staff gettogethers
Cons: wages
The hardest part of the job is when there is not enough staff to handle the customers and phones at peak times. Long time Rona co-workers are comfortable with their position. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing a customer smile with fast correct orders of products. What I learned the most was safety practices/ precations, in the work envirnment.
