Close working team to satisfy the customer.
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.

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.
