    Pros

    Love the people, fast pace environment. Loads of training. Good to their employees. Hire for diversity and people with disabilities.

    Hard work, can be difficult to pass assessment. Nothing really bad to say. I loved working there. Staff and customers are pretty great.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at London Drugs part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flexible scheduale. That's about it

    Cons

    They replaced the annual adjustment increase with an annual performance bonus. Well I never received a review in 8 years, so they could save money not giving me any bonus. Managers are lazy, some are pleasant some are not (especially women managers). They expect you to work extremely hard for little pay. Your on your feet all the time with a Wilkie talkie where people scream in your ear. London Drugs staff and management are despicable and a company I will never work for again. You have been warned.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is go find educated people instead of the high school drop outs who can't find a better job.

    upper management has a few holes as they hire staff that is unable to see beyond themselves as managers
