Not the ideal one, would be a jumping point. According to job benefits, wages at... It may be a little bit disappointing after few months. However, u may gain lots of customer service experiences.

Fun work place

Good place to work good benefits but the pharmacy manager is not very good has his favorite assistants and doesn't appreciate how hard you work. Friendly environment to work at.good hours. Shifts are spread out.


Free lunch and learns


Poor management

A good starting point

London Drugs was my first job. While management could be unfriendly and difficult at times, coworkers were fun and fostered a strong sense of camaraderie. The job wasn’t an exciting one but there were opportunities to bounce between roles (stock, ecommerce, cashier, etc.) and that made things more interesting. It was a great first step into the working world.

Feels like Family

I love their #6th rule: Have Fun. Always feels like I'm just working with my family. There are days where it gets too busy, just call for help then your co-worker will come to the rescue.

Doesn't pay a livable wage. Usually a toxic environment.

The company prioritizes making as much money as possible while putting at least double the workload on each employee instead of hiring sufficient staff.


Flexible schedule

LD provides a sense of comradery and honesty towards customers and coworkers and emanates quality merchandise with ample product choices.

What is the best part of working at the company?The customers and coworkers make the job enjoyable and fun. I thrive on helping customers find what they need and like to suggest other things they may like.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?I would say trying to listen to the radio while having someone else talking simultaneously can prove tricky, but with some practice, it is getting easier and less stressful.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?It is an environment of mutual support and the culture is of a non-prejudiced nature. It is a relaxed atmosphere where people genuinely cooperate with each other and are motivated to help others as well as themselves to succeed.What is a typical day like for you at the company?I am either stocking shelves, working as a cashier, setting up displays, printing price tags arranging a new shelving configurations or most importantly, helping customers to locate what they need or suggesting other products in addition that they may find desirable.

I hated working here. Bullying to the max, managers are lazy and call you too,the office on every little thing. Retail is a bottom of the barrel job, only work here if this is a last resort

supportive staff - poor income

if you are under 21 years old , its a good place to start and work . don't count on it as a stable job because they have to schedule you based on their need and you never know how many hours you will get.

Like all retailers, poor employee treatment.

Worked here 15 years ago. It was when they started shifting away from giving anyone full time hours to avoid paying benefits. It was heartbreaking to see long time employees being discarded like that.

Management is straight out of the sixties while not having nearly the same wage value as back then. Mind numbing, body damaging and minimum wage. Unfriendly people in high positions. They claim to be one of the best employers in Canada, I shudder to think what the worst one is like.


Mild flexibility


Wanting to kill yourself

Hourly staff incredible, middle management over burdened, senior management and HQ disconnected and rife with nepotism.

Hourly staff on the whole wonderful, warm and hardworking. Sales Supervisor's are the over burdened backbone of all stores. Unsung, underpaid, unappreciated and treated as disposable product displays. Largely due to the strong hideous under current of nepotism that permeates from head office thru Senior Store Management. It seems in order to break thru the middle management glass ceiling one has to devoid themselves of common sense, accountability, compassion, and empathy. All for the one, screw the all.

Good job

I love working part time here. Getting free product t is great. I would never become a manager because they move you every two years whether you like it or not.


Free product.


If you don't want to go to another location, you will never be a manager.

Great job that pays a little more than minimum wage

Pretty chill and easy job with great coworkers. I found it to be a great first job for myself and the pay was slightly better than working at other minimum-wage jobs. Though, because I wasn't told that I could make a commission I missed out on around $300 during the Christmas season.

In my experience, the salespeople at London Drugs are knowledgeable and helpful, making the shopping experience enjoyable. They possess excellent communication skills and are always eager to assist customers with their needs. They have an in-depth knowledge of the products they sell, allowing them to offer personalized recommendations to customers. Furthermore, they are courteous and patient when dealing with customers, taking the time to answer questions and provide guidance. In addition to their customer service skills, the salespeople at London Drugs are also efficient and organized in managing their tasks. They ensure that the store is well-stocked and that products are displayed correctly, making it easier for customers to find what they need.
