Cashier/Postal Clerk/Supervisor (Current Employee) – Kingston, ON – 17 November 2017
Great bunch of people to work with. Often short staffed or over staffed. Schedule changes only hours before shifts. Schedules never complete past a week ahead. Pay is terrible for the amount of responsibility.
All over the place and last minute notice about shifts, hard to plan anything else.
Food Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 27 October 2017
It started as a good place to work, but over the years they have cut hours more and more and yet expect the same amount of productivity. This is causing a lot of stress among the workers, and worker morale is at a real low point.
Assistant Front Store Manager (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 13 October 2017
Management ran the store like a dictatorship, and HR couldn't care less about the little people under them. That job tore me down and I felt like I couldn't do anything even though I was excelling at my job..
A busy, underpaid and often frustrating place to work
Pharmacy Assistant (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 7 October 2017
Generally working in the pharmacy we never really have enough people and hours - it is constantly very, very frustrating and overwhelming. I did have good managers in the store I worked at last, but a previous store had awful management so it is definitely not consistent.
Pharmacy Assistant (Retail) (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 3 October 2017
I have been working for shoppers drug mart on and off for 9 year. There is no room to advance. They do not respect their hard working employees. There is a lot of favoritism with this company and if they do not favor you, you are disposable to them.
The wages are fair but no bonuses or salary increases
Favored staff will bully any other staff they do not like and management always believes them
