Keeps employees motivate

Cashier Supervisor (Current Employee)
Mississauga, ON (Canada)

I have been working at Shoppers Drug Mart part-time for more than a year

ProsFirst, the flexibility of the schedule is very good. Second,30percent discount for employees. Very well managed by the owner and Front store manager. The workplace becomes a relaxed environment because majority of the employees treat you like a family:) There are always contests on surveys and optimum sign ups which I often win and keeps me motivated!

ConsCompensation is on the low side

Advice to Senior ManagementGive a little bit more increase on the compensation especially if the employee has a satisfactory work ethics and professionalism.

Not a great place to work

Front Store Cashier (Current Employee)

I have been working at Shoppers Drug Mart part-time for less than a year

ProsFairly flexible with scheduling. Great discounts for staff

ConsNo full time positions unless you are management. Horrible wages.

Advice to Senior ManagementInstead of hiring so many part time staff, who might get 5 to 15 hours a week, hire more full time staff. More would stick around. Who can afford minimum wage and 15 hours a week? NO ONE!!!!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
