    Pros

    Offer great hours to students and they offer some financial aid for post secondary studies. Some sales get a bonus in top of their wage. As well Rona offers health benefits at low premiums.

    Cons

    Little to know training, all training is done on a computer learning center, very little hands on. No room for growth with in the company unless you are in sales. Many people leave because of this, and if you do happen to advance, there is no training for supervisory roles, they just expected to know how to handle irate customers, uncooperative staff, or any issue that may arise. They are then written up , because... they couldn't handle the issue. Its a no win situation.

    Advice to Management

    Train your management people skills, and how to train staff one on one. Have mandatory staff meetings not huddles, very, very few staff pay attention at huddles and most get nothing from them. The huddles usually just interrupt work flow and leave the store unattended.
