Dms are shady
Management is disorganized and rude
No security or sense of accomplishment
Dead ends when problems arise. Never a solution
Favoritism and theft
Expectations too high
Treat people like they are morons
Uncomfortable work settings with no steady site to 1 job
Always being pulled from one job to the next and then reprimanded for not meeting deadlines

This could be an amazing place to work of they rid of the nonsense listened to the worked and helped not harmed people!

Theres always room for advancement because they keep managers. they expect you to work miracles with very minimal hours. and to work for free. cashiers have it easy, aisle holders bust their butts and its never full enough. our full time employees only get 25 hrs..who can live on that?

Things may work on paper but realistically the variables in certain locations include dealing with highly volatile, drug abusing, panhandling clientele within the store creating so much chaos and interruption that it makes getting your job done very difficult to complete and it is highly stressful. It is not for the faint of heart in certain locations. I stress that not all locations are like this one in particular, however this location doesn't get the necessary consideration it should concerning the level of difficult customers/people that frequent the store daily.

I work in dollar store in Denmark. What you describe here is unacceptable behaviour. Not to be rude to any one here, but the manager and Dollar rama need to learn how to relate to others in a positive uplifting maner. Creating a positive working invioment. I wish you all the best. BE TRUE TO YOUR SELF.💖✌

Honestly. Dollarama is the strictest company I have worked for. Having to sign out and bag check? I've worked at higher end stores before and that has never happened. Not only that, the store I'm at will check your pockets. They ask to full on turn your pockets inside out, open wallets ect. Management and Dollarama should have more trust in their employees, it's a massive invasion of privacy. On top of that there's many key holders on a shift and they'll all tell you to do different things at the sametime because there's no communication amongst them. The key holders at my location think so highly of themselves and will secretly check up on you to see if you're just standing around. They're also super rude to customers. They'll over work you and talk down to you the entire time, which isn't worth the money. If you havent worked there for your whole life, you wont be respected. It sucks.
