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
All co worker were all for them selves (NO TEAM WORK)
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.

Cosmetician (Co-op Placement) (Former Employee), Mississauga – September 15, 2014
This job was a co-op placement for part of my grade 12 year. It was from 8am - 3pm everyday. A typical day at this job was assisting customers as needed as well as my manager. Everyone I worked with was very supportive as I was still learning and they were always enjoyable to be around. The hardest part of the job would be trying to get everything done – more... as well as assisting customers, but we always got everything completed. – less
Cashier, and Merchandiser (Former Employee), Guelph, ON – September 15, 2014
Working at Shoppers for a year I learned a lot. From working on cash to starting in my last few months to be trained as a merchandiser. It was an great experience, and I learned so much and met so many great people. At Shoppers we weren't just employees we were a team and always tried to help each other out.
It was exciting to learn new information about the cosmetics available in the store
