Keeps you Busy
Working in the pharmacy at Lawtons for about a year now has taught me many thing. You need to be able to manage your time to make sure that you get your work done, while working with your coworkers to make sure they are able to finish their tasks.
The customers are our priority, and we spend our days working to make sure that they are happy and healthy, especially now during the COVID-19 time that we are living in.

Terrible culture
So, where to begin, well, the store manager considers all of her workers friends and most don’t care for her. Apparently if you work enough you have to get benefits, so it turns into a cat and mouse game of you picking up hours early in the week, when they need people, only to be sent home by having your shifts cut short towards the end of the week. The only onsite activity they had was a dietian telling us to buy compliment products.

Wouldn’t recommend, you’ll hate the company by the time you leave.

Way Better than other Retailers
Worked at Lawtons for roughly 8 years. I enjoyed my time there and met many great people during that time. It was one of the best retail jobs I have ever worked.

Good place to work!
Easy to work with staff, very friendly. Hours are flexible although starting pay is minimum wage as a cashier. Overall, good entry level job when first entering the work force.

Awful
Awful management... had to leave work “sick” because of anxiety due to how the management made me feel. Yelling and manic behaviour. Nothing to do but will get upset when you are doing nothing. I could go on

The work was okay, but management really needed some improvement.
Overall okay place to work, management did not have training to be a manager so fell a little short there and caused some confusion in the department, felt more competitive than cooperative.

lots of bullying and poor management.
inconsistant disciplinary action and unprofessionalism. Personal information gets spread around work place environment, hard work goes unnoticed and unappreciated, seniority gets special treatment, although they truly value none of their workers.
Pros
autonomy
Cons
no direction, no sense of self achievement, no consistent systems

It was a learning experience
I made a lot of friends and found some very great people but the management was bad and I found myself in the middle of a very ugly situation where the managers would bully a few people below them. It was messy.

With the right people, it can be very rewarding and fun, and for a lot of it I really enjoyed the day to day with regular customers and my coworkers.


But, also the outfits are horrible. Those shirts are the least wearable work uniform I've had.

Best Retail Environment I've Ever Worked In.
It's rare to go into a new retail setting and actually like every single coworker as an individual. Management is younger, yet professional, flexible, and understanding.
Pros
Healthy and supportive work environment, schedule flexibility if you give notice, some room for career growth.
Cons
Raises do not reflect the level of responsibility given to you. This is a critique of corporate, not my store.

Workplace moral not great
The store I worked in was typically busy and understaffed. After being there for 7+ years the rate of pay was low compared to a higher starting pay at McDonald’s. Little to no appreciation. Motivation and incentives lacked big time. Issues were dealt with unprofessionally and there was little confidentiality. Most coworkers were great, which made the shifts bearable.

Awesome atmosphere
Great staff to work with
Fun and easy going work place

Management easy to talk to

Pay could be a little more considering responsibility

It’s not a set schedule so planning can be a little hectic with family life

Really great place to work
I’ve worked here for almost 2 years at the beauty counter and it is one of my favourite jobs that I have worked. I enjoy the work, the staff are very friendly and will go out of their way to help co workers and customers alike.

I think my only issues are the very small amount of hours available to part time employees.
Pros
Great staff, nice location, lots of items, staff discount
Cons
Busy at times, customers can be a handful
