typical day
Technical assistant in Pharmacy (Current Employee) –  Montreal, qc11 March 2014
Coming in to work at 8:30. Must prepare all deliveries for the morning so the patients receive their dispills on time. Answering the phone for new orders to be sent out and preparing them. Greeting old customers asking for prescription refills and greeting new customers wanting to fill in a new prescription. I've learned to work quickly, effectively and to work well under pressure. You have to sort out priorities. Its important to serve the customers well without making a mistake with their prescription to gain the pharmacist "trust" or making him/she more comfortable working with you. The hardest part of the job is probably just the standing, but it really isn't that difficult. You need to be able to work well in a team since you are assisting the pharmacist. And at the end of the day, if you were able to hand out all the prescription without any obstacles it makes your day seem very accomplished. It's not a hard job but you need to find your own pace to make it work.

Was a Wonderful Job
Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Amherstburg, ON17 December 2017
The staff is friendly, the environment is fun. And working there was a real Treat. They treat you like family there. I would strongly recommend working there. The only thing i did not like was how much food goes to waste from being expired. I solely believe they need to order less food. and more milk. Overall the work is really fun to do. and you feel a part of the team.
Pros
More sales equals more hours. time and a half for holidays, double time and a half for Christmas and new years
Cons
wasting food.

Cosmetician (Former Employee) –  Strathmore, AB15 December 2017
I enjoyed getting to know customers and growing good relationships with them and helping them in anyway I could. It made any con of the job worth it. Being in cosmetics requires a lot of knowledge of many many different things, but once you get the hang of that its smooth sailing.
Pros
Commission, great discount, gratis
Cons
On your feet all day, can be long hours, short breaks
