I have been working at Shoppers Drug Mart part-time for less than a year

Pros

It is a job and sometimes you have a great team to work with serving patients and customers

Cons

Does not feel valued as a professiona/employee

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you advise your associates to pay at the rate for pharmacists as you do now, you cannot expect to have good, loyal pharmacists working.

    I worked at Shoppers Drug Mart part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent benefits if the assistant managers liked you (free food, funny convos) but at other shoppers I heard management was very anal.

    Cons

    Favouritism. So much favouritism. It was clear if an assistant manager didn't like you, and if you weren't liked, they'd screw you over on shifts, barely talk to you and treat you like a mindeless work horse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To the store associate: Stop being an anti-social prick, you're not better than everyone else, talk to us.

    It's great experience especially if you want to get into the beauty industry, working at shoppers as a beauty expert.

    Pros

    Great Discount.
    Get to go to seminars for Prestige Beauty brands.
    Beauty Experts get commission.

    Cons

    The hours & working on holidays is a must for part timers if you don't book off ahead of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management need to be on top of events and such!
