    I worked at Shoppers Drug Mart full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I was paid a little over minimum wage however I had a lot more responsibilities then an average worker. The benefits were very good and I could get time off when ever I wanted. The managers worked hard to allow workers to work in a position they wanted to work.

    Cons

    Working with high school kids that have no motivation to do anything and their number 1 concern is slacking off. Always calling in sick leaving you short handed most busy weekends
