I have been working at Shoppers Drug Mart full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The discount is great, the software is easy, the tasks are repetitive, and the ability to move departments within a single store is amazing. I worked as a Supervisor, Cosmetician, Cashier, Assistant Manager, and Canada Post Clerk all at one location. It was amazing.

Cons

Sometimes management takes the job too seriously, and kills the joy. I've been at a few locations, and the composure of the management team really makes a considerable difference.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Smile more and laugh more.
