    Pros

    Light work, mostly comfortable and most people know what they want when they come here. Not to big so it's easy to point things out to customers.

    Cons

    Not high enough pay unless your high on the food chain. Could use higher wages to get better employees to stay.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good atmosphere and the sales will show up. If your employees are happy so will the customers be happy.

    Pros

    Nice and helpful co-workers
    Flexible hours
    Anyone could do the job, not a brainy job
    Career opportunities are available only to friends of associates and management team members

    Cons

    Minimum wage and slow raise system
    Abusive management team
    New employees are made to take into the night and weekend shifts
    Part timers' hours are taking away at anytime the store needs them

    Advice to Management

    Push your associates to pay starting employees a more competitive wages and avoid minimum wage so the stores can hold on their employees while they make it through.
    Be a aware of the manipulation of information, shifts, hours and career opportunities Associates do in against of the organization policies. They get away with them making up stories if questioning takes place.

    Pros

    Good schedule for students , great for a part time job
    It can be a very friendly environment depending of your owner.

    Cons

    A LOT of workplace gossip in every of the different locations I've worked at.
    If you are not manager or assistant manager, you sometimes ends up with a bad schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Since every owner is different i cannot talk for the whole organization

    Pros

    Great discount. Wonderful products. Liked the training on SDMU. The e-clientelling tool is helpful to customers.

    Cons

    Hard to get full-time. Waited for over 9 months to get more hours.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop gossiping and playing favourites.

    I have been working at Shoppers Drug Mart

    Pros

    The best part about the job is setting up planograms.

    Cons

    Do not like the hours of work and the irregular shift scheduling.

    Advice to Management

    I understand that orders come on certain days but staff need to have every other weekend off to fully enjoy working at Shoppers. Having to work every Friday night till midnight and every Sunday night does not allow for a home life.
