    I worked at Jean Coutu part-time

    Pros

    Like a small family at the pharmacy I worked at. Everyone was close. Work was not hard. There was also some time to talk to staff which as nice.

    Cons

    There was a lot of tension between staff. Led to a lot of pointless arguments. work could be a bit repetitive at times.

    Advice to Management

    Work more on building team culture. The pharmacist is the owner and a good leader, but did not play much of a role with the team to settle differences.
