Store Associate (Former Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 13 March 2018
The first few years were great, management was awesome to work with. The hardest part of the job was the heavy lifting of merchandise while stocking shelves. The most enjoyable part of the job was the friendly customers.

Possibly one of the most busy jobs, its extremely fast pace and having a friendly and understanding manager really benefits you when you're having a extremely stressful day, expect to run around the store on sundays!
Commis d'entrepôt (Former Employee) – Quebec – 13 March 2018
Travail au sein d'une grosse équipe mais le travail est pas mal individuel. Salaire de 12.25$ de l'heure pour le commis d’entrepôt il y a 8 ans. Ce qui étais très bon comme salaire a l’époque surtout pour dans un dollorama. travail très routinier. Le plus difficiles du travail étais de défaire les palettes référence le poids de certaine boite ,mais n’importe qui peut y arriver si vous arriver a soulever 50 lbs maximum. Le plus plaisant du travail étais de travailler au travers le public et de les aider a trouver l'article qu'il recherche
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Laval QC – 12 March 2018
The short amount of time I have been with this company I have met some wonderful people and I have learned a lot. I have reorganized a section, I have build a store from the ground up and I was even put up in a hotel to help a store change everything around in time for opening. I have worked with almost every stock and very much enjoy the work.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Ottawa – 12 March 2018
The hours are variable week to week. Job tasks vary by position. The individual tasks themselves are not difficult, it is just with so few staff for the number of tasks that are required to be completed by the end of the day can be overwhelming.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 10 March 2018
i worked here for a month, i called in sick because my daughter had croup and her babysitter (whom has 2 kids) didn't want to take her because she was so sick, a week later i was called and fired because someone told my boss that i was shopping. i had taken my daughter to the clinic when i had called in and my boss wouldn't even take my doctors note and said see ya later.
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 7 March 2018
I can honestly say that the work was overwhelming, the staff seemed to be hit or miss for attendance, the environment was consistently unsafe. Upper management would expect store management to stay however long it took until the job was completed. But wasn't very good with paying for extra hours or overtime.
Cashier/Stock (Former Employee) – Edson, AB – 5 March 2018
really gives you a different outlook on retail.. how much energy you use up on making sure merchandise was stocked and having a clean environment. easily can make mistakes out your weekly counts but easily fixable
Stocking shelves was fun and enjoyed it for the most part, I didn't like the shady Management team players and how they favoured certain people they liked and were rude to the ones they didn't like. the hardest part of the job was lifting boxes that were full from shelving higher than yourself...
Key Holder/Supervisor (Current Employee) – Fredericton, NB – 3 March 2018
If you guys are looking forwork and life balance this is not for you. Very low salary. Not enough hours even if you are already a full time employee. Its feels like your a slave. You will clean up the mess of your coworker. After their shift they will just leave everything on the floor and they will ask you to clean up the aisle coz they are done with their shift. They always make you work weekends because they dont want to work weekends.
Physically demading, extremely low salary considering the work load
