    I have been working at Discount Drug Mart part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Drug mart is an easy job that requires less than an iq of 50. This makes it pretty fun on some days as you can get paid for sitting around basically. But it does still teach you what it takes to have a job

    Cons

    There is no "promotions" youre stuck at basically minimum wage most of the time and no matter how much you work your butt off. Its never gonna get better. So minimum pay, minimum effort

    Advice to Management

    Give better raises. I know i would definitely work a lot harder if i had something to work for.

    I worked at Discount Drug Mart full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    We were paid weekly, paid time and a half on holidays, flexible schedules laid back work environment. Overall great place to work.

    Cons

    Low salary, open 365 days a year so working holidays is a must. Some drama especially the younger female staff.

    I worked at Discount Drug Mart full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Usually laid back. Always work to be done, but it doesn't feel super corporate. After working here for sometime I knew everyone and I liked my co-workers. My managers were fun to work with also.

    Cons

    Low pay.
    Working in receiving is often hard work, with more responsibility than the pay would suggest.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do your best and treat your employees with the same respect you want.

    Pros

    Very flexible with scheduling, decent insurance for full time employees, and that is pretty much it as far as positives go.

    Cons

    High turnover, expect to train new employees every 3 months. Pay is low, but it is retail. No real room for advancement or development.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management is definitively a boys club, and it is their prerogative to do so, but I think that prevents them from having any new ideas. The massive turnover has to be of great cost to the company, but they haven't seemed to figure that one out yet. Everyone that figures out they are worth more moves on quickly.

    I have been working at Discount Drug Mart part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is very easy, you just have to show up and do what you are told. They are fairly flexible when it comes to scheduling. Depending on what store you work at the management is very nice and understanding.

    Cons

    Not consistent with raises and not much room for growth. Easy to grow within individual store, but that's about where the ceiling is. The stock room is not air conditioned so having to wear pants back there in the summer makes it very hot.

    Advice to Management

    Be open minded to new ways to do things. Be a LEADER not a manager. Don't just delegate, be on the floor working with us.
