      Pros

      They hire often because of frequent turnover

      Cons

      Unsafe working conditions, Poor communications, Over Abundance of criticism with no praise or thanks for good work. Employees are constantly accused of stealing or suspected of stealing and yet they have no decent loss prevention programs for shoplifters. Every day the policies change and they make it harder to meet the expectations of added workload and shorter hours to do it in. The have no strategy to deal with completing work during busy hours while customer demand for staff time is high

      It's alright, but not great either

      Pros

      Flexible on the hours. As long as you give a 2 week notice, you can schedule days off when needed for appointments and others. Work is pretty easy after enough repetition. You get some health benefits.

      Cons

      Health benefits are nice, but what they provide is not great. It's only consistent as long as you have a full-time position. Management sucks at least for my workplace. My boss has no balls when talking to other employees when something is wrong. Holiday bonuses are a joke. Depending on your position and how long you've been working there, you get $20-$70 of Dollarama gift cards to spend back to the company. And once in a while, if your store has the most sales in general, or from Pepsi sales, they provide with Tim Horton's gift cards. A cheque would be nice.

      Great job, but several negative elements

      Pros

      There is a wonderful management team, work is difficult but fun if you enjoy getting things done in an organized manner, and good experience with customer handling.

      Cons

      Not enough pay/compensation for the work you do, lots of work (whether it is stocking, cleaning the aisles or handling customers), not very flexible in terms of schedule conflicts with school priorities, and you experience some of the worst customers!
