    I worked at Jean Coutu part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Rx Pro is very fun to work with

    Cons

    All the labs I worked at had very bad managing skills. A lot of pharmacies are disorganised and the pay is very low with virtually no advantages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A lot needs to be done about management. Managing people is not easy, you need to be better equiped.

    Pros

    acquire experience with customer service and learn about many different cosmetic products and makeup lines,and be able to compare them.

    Cons

    I don"t think this is a place for someone to have a career considering the salary isn't very competitive.

    Pros

    Nice customers. Love working with the public. Always something to do for someone who likes to keep busy. Not much else to say.

    Cons

    Little pay for cost of living. I make $13.57 an hour. No commissions. Work evening and weekends. Not much time to spend with kids.
