Cashier (Former Employee) – Galarie des Sources – 19 November 2017
I usually open the store with my manager and order the stock in a presentable way. During a weekend, we are usually just three members handling the store. My position is the cashier and I usually greet the clients and scan their items they purchase. I personally think that the digital imprints were a nice input for the cash register. Overall, the paycheck is the only issue that made me quit the job and the lack of hours during normal days.
Payed break around 15 minutes, easy to adapt and calm environment
lack of hours to work, low wage, repetitive task, cleaning shelves takes time
Nice professional atmosphere and equipment. Not much support to excel individually. Not much room for advancement. The hardest part of the job was trying to be creative in a very production oriented atmosphere.
Overall a decent company to work for. Not paid enough for assistant manager requirements and duties.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 9 November 2017
I found my experience with the company to be satisfactory. Part time student cashiers would be an asset and enjoy the fun and fast pace of the job. I find there was too much asked by the company in a management position. They have high expectations and ask jobs to be complete in an unreasonable time frame.
Very high expectations with unreasonable completion times to execute, Not paid enough for some positions.

Overhired for opening and then canned many people using poor excuses like you have someone the wrong change once. Multitasking required but work is expected to be completed anyways. Management gives varying information and talks behind each other backs. Low pay and now benefits.
Dollarama wear house (Former Employee) – 5555 royalmont montreal q.c – 4 November 2017
It's wasn't the best job working in a bad environment with 500 people and only one bathroom out of the hole wear house but it still paid the bills and I went ever day but not what I was looking for but I still worked and gave it my best.
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 31 October 2017
Working in Dollarama on Part-time basis is fun but also stressful. As an employee, we are dealing with heavy traffic of customers on day to day basis and we have to make sure that we bring our A-game every day.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 30 October 2017
Pretty much everyone I've met has been kind of toxic for me as well as some of my coworkers. I personally feel like it is not right for me to be in that situation entirely. There's too much Drama and he said she said business, no one seems to be taking the job seriously and working at a level of sophistication where everyone can work in harmony.
Bad customers, employees, managers, and you don't get paid for lunch breaks (only 15 min. breaks)
