Workplace Bullying at Its Finest.

The assistant manager got the entire store to gang up on me for no reason and nobody does anything about it. Management never takes issues seriously and only cares about store results and not their employees' well-being.

Was okay, hours sucked

Was okay hours were inconsistent and so was the schedule. Customers are often rude but merchandising was okay. Overall a definite negative experience.

Fun working environment

Working at shoppers was an amazing time. Manager was very supportive, and the work environment was chill. As long as you look busy and not on your phone on the floor, youll be fine.

Thieves, thieves, and more thieves.

A typical day at work includes following around homeless people, being yelled at by old people, and guarding the front register like a dog. Day shift is nice, and most of the older ladies are super sweet and cute, there’s less people trying to walk out with the whole store in their back pack.


You’re the first person to see the markdowns after Halloween


Thieves all the time and no security

shoppers drug mart was my first job and I worked there for four years. During my time at shoppers drug mart I learned a lot of good habits. I learned how to have a strong work ethic. I also learned how to complete tasks in an organized and timely manner

Awful place to work

Next to no life work balance. Always short staffed because they’re ‘cutting hours’ so deadlines for stock completion is never met, yet employees are blamed for this

Overworked, underpaid

The people there are nice and are good to work with. Management is horrible and don’t know how to run their store. Treat staff awful. Owner doesn’t care either.

Low pay, and unprofessional

The Manager would snap at new employees for small thingsYou're better than minimum wageThey scheduled me for a shift without telling me they had updated the scheduleSome customers ask teenaged employees too much about recommendations for adult items.No real trainingBad hours and engages in quiet firing if an employee happens to call in sick

Good first job to have

It’s a pretty decent first job to have. The work isn’t too difficult and the discount is nice. Only negative was the management, if you call in sick don’t expect to be on the schedule for another 2 weeks.

to be expected min wage job, the managers there are not horrible, customers are not bad, everything is not bad, just monotonous work is all. What you expect

Shoppers Drug Mart Simcoe

The front store manager goes above and beyond for the team. She checks in regularly and encourages growth and cross training and she works hard! You’ll find her doing a lot of the jobs people don’t want to do just so we can focus on other things. The assistant managers are great too. A lot of the staff have been there a long time and it has a “family” vibe. The owner truly values the staff and it shows. They do so many things for us all. The head manager plans things all the time. Cons- a lot more physical that you would think but, it’s like a workout some days which could also be a pro. Midnight shifts sometimes, but the scheduling is done very fair and mindfully


Goodies, positive environment, flexible schedule

Good starting job

This is a good place to work for a first time job. The job was very slow paced and I found myself bored with the everyday tasks I would do. I also didn’t find the job easy to build good connections with everyone you worked with. It’s a good place to work if you like doing your own thing once assigned a task.
