A safe and clean working environment that value their employees.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 24 April 2018
Shoppers Drug Mart is a great company that provides a great deal of security for all their employees. I felt very safe working at Shoppers because the company's policies focus on employee safety and well being. I learned to be cordial when dealing with customers and fellow co-workers during my stay at Shoppers. A typical day at work would be to do our best to complete all the tasks that are assigned for that day. The hardest part of the job is meet the requirements from the upper management staff which at times could be too demanding. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing happy and satisfied customers. It is a wonderful feeling knowing that you did a good job and have provided good services to others.
The co-workers were nice and easy to get along with.

The co-workers were nice and easy to get along with. There was no advancement opportunity however. The hours were long and the break given was only the one hour lunch break we had there was no in-between.
Many other assisting tasks, as assigned to me (Former Employee) – Devon, AB – 26 March 2018
I had a great time working here. I received real makeup training in cosmetics that could help me earn better commission on sales. I just didn't work the right hours or enough hours... which is typical in a retail environment. you jusr don't know what you're going to get. I prefer a salary job.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Coquitlam, BC – 25 March 2018
Typical work day would be sorting out product in the back to get ready to put on shelves. Was an on-call cashier whenever back was needed. Hardest part of the job was not being able to complete some of tasks as was not trained in all areas. Enjoyable part was I taught myself.

Cashier / Post Office Clerk (Current Employee) – Woodbridge, ON – 23 March 2018
Management is very warm and friendly The most enjoyable part of the job is that my co-workers and supervisors are very warm, when I first started they all helped me learn the rules and regulations of the store. I started off as a cashier and then slowly, I got my training for Post Office as well. It is a very friendly environment and you get lost of opportunities to learn and grow as an employee.

As far as customer service jobs go, this one is pretty great. I am fortunate to have great managers and most of my staff are good. There is room to try different positions on the sales floor and flexibility with hours.
Cashier/Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 22 March 2018
id say the hardest part of the job was leaving the work environment each day, I genuinely enjoyed my job and all the caring customers I met, I would definitely recommend applying, I learned new skills that can be applied further on in my life.

Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Woodbridge, ON – 21 March 2018
I was able to learn and cooperate with both co-workers as well as customers. I used this opportunity to improve on my communication with customers and able to understand their need. I was eventually promoted to supervising the store at night time, and was able to run the store. Unfortunately, I had to leave due to school, otherwise it is a great place to work at.
CASHIER/MERCHANDISER (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 20 March 2018
I liked working here because I was able to excel through different job positions and experience all the company had to offer. I was required to help customers purchase the right choice of makeup and skincare, as well as show them how to apply such products. I thoroughly took pride in knowing that I helped another woman find her confidence through cosmetics.
Fair place to work for. There was a balance in the work to life balance. Employees were treated fairly and with respect
Senior Accounting Clerk (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 20 March 2018
At Shoppers Drug Mart, employees/colleagues were treated fairly and with respect. You felt a part of the team and your boss was fair and listened to you. A typical day at work was processing invoices via upload and data entry of invoices. The managers cared about your work ethic. The culture was relaxed (business casual but very busy). The most enjoyable part of the job was being part of a team and making the job fun. There was room to grow and learn.
Team Member (Former Employee) – Grimsby, ON – 19 March 2018

Merchandiser/supervisor (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 19 March 2018
Shoppers Drug Mart is an excellent place to go for both a first job, and a career. Depending on which location, the staff can be so welcoming and they truly do feel like a part of your family. If you are willing to take the time to learn the store standards, and show a willingness to learn and move throughout the company, then you will do well here. Again, depending on which location, shifts can be 14+ hours long, but usually are no more than 8. All in all i don't regret my decision to join the shoppers team, and would recomend this job to just about anyone.
CASHIER (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 19 March 2018
A great place to start and continue working up. A lot to do and a day is never wasted. I learned how to be a cashier as well as a merchandiser, which has been very valuable to me as it was my first job. Customers and coworkers can sometimes be difficult, however, it's all part of the human experience and I enjoyed every single moment working at Shoppers.
