    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Shoppers Drug Mart full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    • Team-driven, supportive community • Education opportunities • Hourly wage + commission + gratis • Accommodating work-life balance

    Cons

    • Not much room for upwards movement • Quality of work culture depends entirely on management team • High turnover rate • Few full-time opportunities

    Advice to Management

    I would encourage those in management positions to foster teamwork in their employees and encourage team members to support each other, rather than compete. Continue valuing education and training opportunities. Invest further in employee wages and opportunities for higher hourly pay, based on experience, training received, and time working for the company.
