    I worked at Shoppers Drug Mart part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flex hours. Nice staff to work with. I worked here while in school full time so 8 hour shifts were hard but nice. I worked mainly 2-10 shifts and mainly on week days.

    Cons

    One boss for the entire store who was usually stuck with visors on. It was hard to communicate because the owner is responsible for the function of the entire store and pharmacy.

    Advice to Management

    I don't even know

    I have been working at Shoppers Drug Mart part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The discount of 30% off regular priced merchandise is really good for a retail job. Relatively easy work for the most part.

    Cons

    The starting pay is minimum wage. The people you work with are mediocre at best. Management is terrible. On a personal level, there's so much trash talking it's like a high school cafeteria.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Don't take them for granted and give them raises every once in a while. The only reason that people stay is because they're desperate and the work isn't as hard as it may be at other places.

    Great Benefits such as:
    30% Off
    Great medical benefits like 90% rx and 90%Basic Dental

    Cons

    Shoppers does not pay overtime therefore there is no way to make extra money. They expect you to work for free and be okay with that.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with a little more respect.
