7 questions about Working Culture at Shoppers Drug Mart
All employees including management are ridiculously overworked. The store itself is so understaffed that everyone is worked to the bone at all times. Supervisors are supposed to manage the entire store while being assigned an undoable amount of other tasks. Many of my coworkers felt they couldn’t even take their breaks or lunches because there was too much to do. Very tense and stressful work environment, unpleasant customers. Cashiers are forced to wait by self checkout machines and scan products out there instead of behind the register just to achieve corporate’s numbers. You will never be thanked for any work you do, and no matter how much you manage to complete in a shift it is never enough which becomes very stressful. Schedules usually not put out until about 2 days before the new work week, days off are denied for no reason, and availability change requests are ignored. There is no respect for the employees, no gratitude shown, and far too much expected for the minimum wage compensation. Even if you have a good manager, they are often so stressed from being overworked as well that they simply cannot focus on creating a pleasant work environment. It’s depressing.

For me, working in a Cosmetics, Skin care products, Perfume will be a place I ve dreamed to work in since I was a little kid, I know a lot about that field and I will be qualified to sales beyond my expectations.I have so much experience with the pruducts and how to apply them and how to offer customers an experience like no other into buying a product not like if he was a stranger but to me introduce him to a product will be like if he is family to me and I will try to convince him to buy lot more then what he is looking for because of my knowlege of each customer interest and well being.

It could be great if the management knew what they were doing and had an actual understanding of what the company expects. Management was very disorganized and was constantly changing their minds on things when they were told by the higher-ups that they were doing their job wrong, which was always.
