Photo Department Manager (Former Employee), Brandon, MB – March 14, 2013
what I've learned at shoppers drug mart is how o deal with anything that can come up from error tills to unhappy customers, staying focused and dealing with each situation as they rise up. Multitasking and to stop and resume work when needed.
A company that lets you grow as a person in the workforce.
Manager (Former Employee), Kingston, ON – January 7, 2013
Pros: 20% discounts
Cons: none...i loved my job!!!
A typical day at Shoppers Drug Mart was never the same. Each customer brings different needs and wants and my job was to meet every one of their needs quickly and efficiently. I loved the closeness of working with my clients and making them happy. And the best part was when they returned time after time to specifically find me and ask for my help and – more... advice. We all worked as a team in Shoppers Drug Mart even though there were definite different areas of the store i.e.: pharmacy, cosmetics. grocery etc. – less

Customer service (Former Employee), Toronto – November 18, 2011
Pros: too short lunches
Cons: have to work on your breaks
Shoppers do not take care of their employees you are basically on your own, there is no motivation at this particular store that i worked for, there was no appreciation for the work or situations that an employee would incurred.

As a cashier supervisor, and working in customer service, you learn to deal with almost anything a customer can through at you, are able to cover shifts at the drop of a dime, and work under pressure. Overall, the good days win over the bad. Was a great place to work.
the employee was very friendly and support each other when they need.
