    I have been working at Pharmasave Drugs part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to work, fantastic hours (at previous employers, they were open till 10 and 11 pm. Store hours here are 9-6 or 11-4 on Sundays). Great people to work for, and they've got a great team, which is hard to find anywhere, let alone a tourist town. There's a staff discount. Great communication between the 2 owners and the cashier staff. When I need time off for school or bereavement, they are super-duper accommodating. I am impressed. These guys have worked very hard to make this a great environment for both customers and employees.

    Cons

    A 25 minute commute through the mountains in the wintertime is kind of hairy, but nothing really bad to say about Pharmasave. No group health benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing. Keep up the great work.
