    I worked at RONA full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is a great place to get customer service experience. Working here will teach you how show empathy towards retail employees (because you yourself will be treated poorly by many customers).

    Cons

    Unsupportive management. They have expectations, but don't always give you what you need to perform. The store manager is also rather biased towards certain employees.

    They don't give enough hours to staff, yet often hire new people. Sometimes, requests for time off aren't honoured despite ample notice.

    Annual "raises" are worth pennies.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees more, perhaps.

    Pros

    Employee discount on materials, direct coworkers were easy to work with and helpful with helping learn how to do the job

    Cons

    Employers were not too willing to listen, help, or care about any issue that arose. No direction on the job for what we needed to do.
