Everyone is friendly, helpful, customer service oriented and we make a great team, working here is just like being part of the familly.
Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) – Richmond, BC – 1 July 2014
The hardest part of the job is inability to give customers timely service with lineup at both counters, phone ringing off the hook and only two people working in the pharmacy.
The most enjoyable part is when customer leaves us happy and well looked after ( all questions re new medication answered , med review) and comes back with family and friends to use our pharmacy.
My co workers are great we help each other and make very good team. When pharmacy is busy they will receive medications order and on the slower days I will help stock up front store shelves - by now I can find anything in the store not only in the OTC section. We give better customer service.
Excellent benefit package and free in house training.
Low wages and not enough hours so I have to work 6-7 days a week and still can't pay my bills.
Front Store Supervisor (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 24 July 2017
Usually it was pretty busy, I learned how to take passport photos, run the Canada Post Outlet and how to do daily cash deposits. The managers were really good at being on top of the staff and making sure everything is running smoothly. The staff are friendly and accepting to new employees and usually the days goes pretty smooth. The hardest part of the job was the repetitiveness and the customer issues, also when items were priced incorrectly it causes a problem. The best part of working here were the benefits and promotions. In the end I was let go unexpectedly after a new company bought it out.
Postal Clerk (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 19 July 2017
The people were nice and so were the hours. The owner of my Shoppers Drug Mart was very kind and would not hesitate to talk to me one on one if there was ever an issue or a question I had that needed to be answered.
Starting day at work is very enjoyable to see all the friendly staff. Great manager and owner to work for. Best part of the job is talking to customer
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 18 July 2017
Starting day at work is very enjoyable to see all the friendly staff. Great manager and owner to work for. Best part of the job is talking to customers and helping them with what they needed. Most favourite taking picture for passport/visa
Cosmetician (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 17 July 2017
working at shoppers was fun but management in my department wasn't the best, you get decent hours and a typical day at work was kinda slow. hardest part was dealing with people who think they know everything.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Belle River, ON – 14 July 2017
A typical day at work for a shoppers employee includes either being on cash, or being back up cash while stocking the shelves. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at shoppers drug mart! It is a very comfortable and challenging place to work at, but everyone is very assuring and helps you when in need:) The most challenging part of working at shoppers drug mart is working with difficult customers, or juggling a few jobs at once. Although in the beginning it is tricky, working at shoppers has taught me many skills that i will use throughout my future career.
Management is Amazing!, They always spend their time to go out their way to make their employees days better!
Beauty Boutique Associate (Former Employee) – Okotoks , AB Canada – 14 July 2017
excellent employer and staff. I enjoyed working there. It was a balanced environment with good moral. All the Beauty Boutique associates were helpful and we shared a common goal of customer satisfaction.
Pharmacy Assistant (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 12 July 2017
I work in a 24 hour store so the 7-8 hours shifts can be 7 days a week starting from early morning and ending up to midnight.
Pharmacy customers can sometimes be demanding, wanting their drugs faster than we have the manpower for given the volume of incoming prescriptions. Unfortunately, we can't process all prescriptions in 20 mins or less because we have so many prescriptions and limited rotation of staff.
Great place to work, but too much drama within management
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Whitby, ON – 12 July 2017
I loved the jobs I had to do at shoppers drug mart. I enjoyed the job but hated the gossip and drama that happened within upper management. The environment working here was awful. Always walking on egg shells. No sense of community and as an employee did not feel valued by the company. The actual job and the tasks I was responsible for were what made the job enjoyable.
