Caissière (Former Employee) – Boucherville, QC – 26 May 2018
I loved the team at Dollorama. Everyone was very nice and there was great teamwork going on. I only left because they could not give me more than 8 hours a week, always divided in 2 4 hour-long shifts.
Part-time Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Delta, BC – 9 May 2018
mostly autonomous work with a bit of direction, fairly typical minimum wage job. Various positions to be filled and was fairly flexible with them, from acting as a cashier, stocking shelves, customer service, and working in the back.
Associate (Former Employee) – Stoney Creek, ON – 7 May 2018
- customers can be rude and complain about pricing - lots of theft - a lot of multi tasking involved - no discount for employees, or incentives or benefits for part time work - the "no returns" policy makes customers angry - easy job overall, but tends to be understaffed - some management is also rude depending on the location, but if the coworkers are good, its a fun job merchandising. - customers change their mind constantly, so be prepared to put away carts FULL of merchandise every night.
Cashier / Merchandizing (Former Employee) – Williams Lake, BC – 7 May 2018
I worked as cashier and merchandiser. I took over-time to help get all the merchandise out that was overstocking in the back. I didn't want to leave, because it was an easy fun job, so hardest part is moving out of town and leaving that job.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Ancaster, ON – 7 May 2018
As far as entry level jobs, it was fairly simple - but still quite difficult at times. Lots of rude customers, but the staff always handled it professionally. Very very busy come holidays, but that helped time pass.
Not very boring
Honestly, the store is a whole lot of grey and that kinda gets to you after a while
Cashier (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 7 May 2018
It wasnt the hardest job but wasnt the easiest job, theyd make us punch out right on the minute at the end of the shift but keep us working past the time we punched out to get all the cleaning done which was illegal, i also didnt get paid $600 for one of my paycheques, sooo i had to leave this place because if there not going to pay me whats the point. I never saw justice for that paycheque.
Keyholder (Former Employee) – Antigonish, NS – 4 May 2018
The staff was fun to work with. I enjoyed working there. I learned to stock shelves, how to get along with upset customers, manage my time. The hardest part was getting all the things done on time. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the staff we got along quite well had some laughs. A typical day at work would entail, opening the store counting cashes, running cash till first cashier got there, doing onhands, no scans, and receiving merchandise, stocking shelves. Giving the cashier change when needed, helping on cash when needed as well.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 3 May 2018
Working at Dollarama has taught me the basics of any large company. How to work at the cash area, how to stock, and how to handle customers with care. Some of the work may be tedious, however with the right management, its a good job.
I came to québec only over one year ago and they hired me as soon as I got here. Its a muticulturel environment. You have to perform and work fast. There is a lot of come and go as the people dont stay at that job for long. Its a good first job if you just got in the country. Not enough hours, they often send you home.
Cashier and Bookkeeper (Former Employee) – Burlington, ON – 23 April 2018
A typical day at work involved assisting customers and working front line. I increased my social and communicative skills with customers and had a very friendly team of staff to assist me with anything that was needed. The hardest part of the job was dealing with troublesome customers and the most enjoyable was talking with my co-workers during breaks and on shift when things weren't too busy.
