Does Shoppers Drug Mart offer parental leave?

Pros

I initially really liked my coworkers, but the terrible Management drove them all away. The gratis was nice, when the cosmetics manager actually gave it to us.

Cons

So many. Gratis left for the cosmeticians was rarely given to us. After working there for years, picking up everyone's shifts in emergencies, and not having called in or requested time off, I requested a day off for my son's birthday (3 weeks in advance) and was denied. There's no recognition for hard work, no proper training, and management plays favorites. They cut my hours back upon finding out I was pregnant, almost making it impossible for me to qualify for maternity leave until I threatened to involve the labour board. Then hours magically appeared. Upon my return from maternity leave, I was only given one shift a week. Given that an entire pandemic had occured while I was gone, I needed to be retrained after coming back- but it never happened. Instead they told me I should have came in on my own time, unpaid, to get brought up to speed on everything. The employee turnover is HUGE.

Advice to Management

Stop playing favorites, know who your best workers really are, and don't get caught up in gossip and drama. Management cannot be afraid of confrontation, yet gossiping behind the backs of employees. Oh, and paying a cosmetician 65 cents over minimum wage after 5 years of service is disgraceful.
