    I have been working at Shoppers Drug Mart full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay, commission, opportunity to advance, extensive training and management training opportunities

    Cons

    All stores are individually owned. In my experience our store got a new owner and he didn't like people so he cleaned house and fired people left right and center for no reason. He gave everyone he fired severance pay so they wouldn't say anything and so he didn't have to give a reason for dismissal (this is okay as per labour standards) as much as shoppers drug mart liked me as an employee it had no say in regards to my tasteless dismissal.

    Advice to Management

    Take control of your stores and listen to what employees have to say about owners/associates
