Ever changing, requires adaptive approach.
Night Crew/Receiving & Stock (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON9 February 2018
Stock changes seasonally, requires attention to details to provide best customer shopping experience. Generally, a fairly laid-back approach to customer service. Employees need to be familiar with the products they represent to aid customer purchasing choices.
Pros
flexible work schedules, great for college students needing limited days
Cons
Can be stressful. Some heavy lifting may be required.

Cashier (Former Employee) –  Elk Point, AB30 January 2018
Employees are knowledgeable about most products, and refer you to the manager if you need something they don't know about. The employees are friendly.

Lumber Yard Worker (Former Employee) –  London, ON26 January 2018

Pros
Basic work
Cons
sometimes you get a rude customer.

Pros

Cons
temporary work

Fun workplace and productive
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) –  Grande Prairie, AB22 January 2018
Count the cash register before heading to till, scan customers products through the cash registers, answer questions when asked from customers, refill the popcorn machine when needed, and gather carts from the cart corral when needed. Cleaning chores vary between opening and closing; before the store opens and/or one hour before the store closes.

I learned how to communicate with different departments to work as a team, the management is helpful, and has flexible hours during school. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to know contractors, new customers, and morning gathering to build a stronger team.
Pros
Flexible hours

Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON18 January 2018
A typical day at work begins with putting on the vest and then stepping into my station. From there, however, there is no "typical" day; every day is a different challenge. Customer queries can vary as much as each customer. It is a good entry point for anyone seeking to work within Retail.

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Toronto Pearson International Airport, ON17 January 2018
The first thing they take serious is safety for the worker which is really vital.

Respect and communication is also key at the work place which helps to work as a team.
Pros
Free Lunch
Cons
More hours given sometimes

CASHIER/TOOL RENTAL/CSR/RONA ASSIST REP (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON16 January 2018
A typical day is fraught with social interaction. I learned much moving from Cashier to Customer Service to Tool Rental and to the Pro Service desk. Unfortunately, management was directly the reason behind 3 of 4 Rona stores in the gta closing down for good.
Pros
Working for a Canadian company
Cons
Working for an owner inconsistent with the Canadian culture

Cashier (Former Employee) –  Windsor, ON15 January 2018
When the store was open, it was a great place to work. As a cashier, you are the last line of defense for theft and was looked upon to catch it. Miss being a cashier in the lumber yard.
