Pleasant and quiet, with looping radio announcments
Cashier and Floor worker (Former Employee) – Queen St. Mississauga – 30 June 2014
Days were pleasant and easygoing, lots of regular customers. I learned how to work as a cashier, and as part of a team. The management at Shoppers were all pleasant to work with, as well as the co workers. There's a very calming environment created inside the stores themselves, almost like walking around an old folks home. Hardest part of the job would be on points events days. Customers go berserk for their optimum points. My favourite aspect of this job was working as a cashier and getting to know some of the regular customers. Many were very friendly and made the job that much more pleasant.
Not physically demanding, simple work, good scheduling practices
Good Starting job for people new to the work force.

For someone looking for an easy job or a job that does not require experiences. Restocking and organizing shelves is a useful skill to help you keep things presentable and tidy in a retail environment.

Supervisor (Former Employee) – Port Perry, ON – 25 April 2017
Easy going place to work. Salary is low but you do get a discount. No room for advancement at all, and you never know how many hours you will get in a week. Requested full time hours many time and sometimes would only get 5 a week. Over all good experience, great part time job for a student.
Cash Manager (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 25 April 2017
Terrible Work environment. Front End manager is the WORST...The owner is Mental. Front end supervisorsall hate each other and talk about each other all day everyday. No training provided to do my job correctly. WORST JOB EVER
Productive and Fun workplace with a great atmosphere

During my time working at Shoppers drug mart I found that it was a very good place to work. The job isn't to difficult and the other staff/management were very caring and generous about days off. The work environment was exceptional and i would gladly work there again.
Relief Pharmacist (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 25 April 2017
They don't compensate you for transport, when you work as a relief pharmacist no benefits, even if you work 28hr/week between different stores. Usually a very professional organized and a clean environment to work..
