Shoppers Drug Mart Employee for Ten Years
Supervisor, Merchandiser, Post Office, Cashier (Current Employee) – Windsor, ON – 19 January 2018
A typical day at work for me can include juggling up to four different departments in one shift due to my level of cross training. I am trained in almost every store department that does not require specialized education.
My management team is very supportive, and is flexible with most workers.
The workplace culture is upbeat, always moving, but has an underlying general despondency due to the lack of competitive pay raises and benefits packages.
The hardest part of the job is some of the physical aspects (eg, standing at till for long periods of time, moving pallets, lifting product) as well as customer retention after service disputes.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the fact that every day is a different job list and making our customers happy.
