Task-oriented job with unique management styles and good teamwork culture
Shipper/Receiver (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 24 April 2017
Shoppers Drugmart is a large, stable company with corporate structure. There are hierarchies that provide opportunity to move up, but it may take years to reach the position of Assistant Manager. The job is diverse enough to stay occupied for a full 8-hour shift, but the scheduling can sometimes be sporadic. It is very important to develop a strong working relationship with your associate-owner, front store manager and assistant managers, as they are available to assist you in learning new skills that lead to eventual promotion. My only complaint is that it takes a very long time to improve your wage, and wages are usually not increased based on merit.
If you are hard-working, a quick learner and willing to put in 5-10 years of labour, you can become very successful at Shoppers Drugmart.
Tight-knit group of colleagues and peers across the GTA, management rewards you for hard work and dedication
