    I've been working at Shopper's for about two months now; it's been a mostly very positive experience so far and I look forward to a long career
    here.

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

    Pros

    The staff is friendly and upbeat, the supervisors and managers are as well for the most part. Hands on training allows you to learn quickly and pick it up easily. Someone is always around to answer questions and help out. Shopper's is a very professional environment and the store is ALWAYS very clean, tidy and well organized. The manager is an amazing person and posts the schedules well in advance.

    Cons

    The supervisors often have different standards and opinions on how things should be done. You're expected to do a lot of things at once even when it's not possible to multitask so much.
    These are problems that could easily be fixed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Outline job specifications a bit more clearly and keep your expectations less complicated and more realistic.
