Expectations too high even for the hardest workers.
Favouritism within mgmt and certain employees
Do not promote past 3rd key within store
The harder work, the worse you are treated, lazy employees just keep getting by
Inconsistent hours

The manager and the key holder in Dollarama, Victoria BC play favouritism, one long time worker is frankly aggressive not only with coworkers but with customers as well, pushing people out of his way or calling names to customers, seriously!! and he doesn't get in trouble, while the key holder if she things you are doing something wrong, together with the manager will harass you... Sad, but unskilled managers across Canada do the same thing, over and over, without consequences. Living in a "progressive" country!!!

Worst company to work for ever. I worked there for almost 4 months, was hired on as fulltime only got part time hours in the beginning. In my first week i was promised id be made a keyholder and was made an aisle holder. After that everytime i turned my back i was in trouble for something even though i was doing everything, cash, nerchandising, breaking down the skids, etc. When i had issues with other coworkers, who would never show up for acheduled shifts or just stand around and do nothing, id be the one getting wrote up. Also i was told id be suspended with pay because i wouldnt sweep the floor one night because i was sick. I never got put on the schedule and they fired me two weeks after the fact and i never received any pay. Never received 300 bucks in vacation pay and almosy 600 in wages . was fired decemeber 11 still never received any money . ive fought with labor board here on pei, fought with the store manager, fought with head office in quebec amd have gotten nowhere. I was off my probation with dollarstore but because islamd legislation states 6 minths for probation, they cant do anything. And dollarama has gotten away thus far with not paying me

Management is underqualified. Staff are overworked. Cashiers are the favourites, merchandisers are the donkeys. Not enough pay, work like a dog, body pain, no acknowledgement, managers have unrealistic expectations.

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!
