    I have been working at Shoppers Drug Mart part-time

    Pros

    30% discount, commission when working in cosmetics

    Cons

    management has ZERO regard for it's employee's and does not provide a flexible work/life balance, ALWAYS cutting hours, poor wages, always short staffed but management refuses to hire which means way more work for employees to 10x the work, constantly disturbed on days not working or off by phone calls from management if they are understaffed and really need people to come in

    Advice to Management

    HIRE MORE STAFF!!! IF YOUR STAFF ARE NOT HAPPY BECAUSE YOU OVERWORK THEM AND DO NOT PROVIDE THEM A WORK/LIFE BALANCE, YOU WILL NOT SEE GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE AS STAFF WILL BE UNMOTIVATED
