I had an excellent experience at Shoppers Drug Mart.

Pharmacist (Former Employee)
Toronto, OH

I worked at Shoppers Drug Mart

ProsThe best reasons to work at Shoppers Drug Mart were the friendly workplace environment and the high salaries comparing to other companies.

ConsThe disadvantages of the company were the little vacation period and the extensive hours of operation comparing to other companies.

Advice to Senior ManagementI would like to advice you to open a single store of your company in Albania,Europe because Albania is a country model in Europe for the economical growth.The Prime Minister,Sali Berisha will help you to establish the new business there.The profits will come from the first year.The taxation system is the lowest in Europe.

Keeps employees motivate

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.
