I have been working at Shoppers Drug Mart part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Great discount I work with an amazing team! I get lots of good deals etc! Working in cosmetics is my passion !

Cons

Not many maybe that part time do not benefits, that's pretty common though! And my pay could be a little better but in time it will grow! Computer systems could be better in cosmetics referring to customer files, still in the stone age....

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work!

    Each store is different - no consistency in p/t shift hrs, discount, training, transfer opportunities - need to reapply

    Pros

    Good first job. If you are a seasoned employee coming from another retail/customer service position be prepared to start at minimum wage, entry level position with little training to a cliquish, favoritism and nepotism type of environment.

    Cons

    - Excellent training is sacrificed to keep costs at a minimum by working to your shift allowance - no working 5 to 10 min extra to learn a procedure
    - Supervisors are not hired as supervisors with people skills. It is a natural progression after working 2+ years. I witnessed a 19 year old coworker promoted to supervisor because she was the longest standing front store cashier in the store
    - High turnover

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep stores consistent with training, discount availability, refund policy, store shift hours with a central HR to raise questions, concerns, I understand each store is a franchise under the Shoppers Drug Mart banner but it is frustrating for employees as well as customers when we receive inconsistent information. Also stores do not talk to each other.
