Good place to work if you have a clear schedule
Front End Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Waterdown, ON24 May 2018
Great place to work. Not enough hours put into proper training for new staff, but management tries hard to make it work. Very understanding and recognizes hard work. A tad frantic at times.
Pros
Fun events for staff
Cons
Understaffed a lot of the time

Yard worker/ customer service. Elmsdale
Warehouse Worker / Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Elmsdale, NS9 May 2018
Tip: Watch your back in the yard. Everyone uses someone gor a reason. Poor supervisor/ supervision. Very rude and ignorant bullies. They pick on one or two people then they get everyone in on the bullying and harassment. Tell you your doing a super job and they is room for more hours a week later there cutting hrs. Very dis-organized. Some show up for work other don't and don't call in.
Pros
Have a much bettet career now. Not with Rona
Cons
No a great place for yoir moral, name cslling and many put down.

Decent place to work, depending on the department the work can be more than what job description states. Management can be difficult depending on department you work for.

Solid work
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Strathmore, AB7 May 2018
Solid work with reasonable expectation. The shift structure was not the most fun, but was reasonable. Were understaffed some of the time so extra work was required, or taking on roles in different departments was needed. All in all a good place to work.

Lowes ou comment détruire une excellente compagnie
commis saisonnier-horticulture (Current Employee) –  Saint-Hyacinthe, QC28 April 2018
On ne se reconnait plus dans cette entreprise jadis très prisée pour sa qualité d'employeur. Budget d'heures coupé au maximum, employés surchargés par la lourdeur des tâches journalières. Je n'avais jamais vu une banderole ''On embauche'' devant mon magasin, nous avions plutôt l'habitude d'avoir trop de candidatures par notre excellente réputation d'employeur. Les nouveaux employés payés au salaire ''presque'' minimum (selon le département) essaient 1-2 semaines et nous quittent et les anciens fuient pour une meilleure atmosphère de travail. Nous savons très bien que les nouvelles embauches vont être coupées à l'automne. Le personnel et la direction n'ont plus le sourire et l'amour de leur emploi comme à l'époque de Rona. Lowes nous a réduit à la réputation de Canadian Tire... je dirais même pire!!!
Pros
avantages sociaux
Cons

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  London, ON24 April 2018
The employees at RONA are amazing, but their management team is absolutely horrendus. They care more about their bonuses at the end of their year, that are based on how much money they save, which is gained from cutting back on employee saleries and from customer service. I good company as a first job, because as a cashier it is very monotomus and hours are very flexable. They will never give full time or raises with promotions, as some employees who have worked for over 15 years still are making close to minimum wage.
Pros
Monotonous, good employees.
Cons
No raises, No benefits, Bad management
