    I have been working at Pharmasave Drugs part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good for student's like myself, doesn't interfere with school.
    Co-workers are easygoing and laid-back, I am comfortable around them. Always there in case I need help.
    Work itself is pretty mindless.
    Technology is good, we have large touchscreen monitors for our cash register.

    Cons

    Sometimes business can be dead, and time goes by slow.
    Only 4h a week, or if I'm lucky every couple of months I get an 8h shift.
    Lottery can be stressful and frustrating at times.
    I find I can sometimes be taken advantage of or feel left out by senior employees. They happily chat with the pharmacist while I have to stay at cash alone, or they choose another student employee over me to assist them and tell me to stay at cash incase customers come.
