    I have been working at Co-op full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The benefits for full time are exceptional. There are many employee events held monthly available for all to join. Opportunities for advancement are available.

    Cons

    Toxic workplace. Having so many different departments form employee cliques. Staff room is always abuzz with gossip about other members, inappropriate language and swearing. Travel pay is sometimes not fully received and it takes some poking around to get something done about it. Scheduling is an absolute nightmare- based on seniority, managers tracking your absence and non flexible schedules. Under staffing for the pharmacy is also an issue.
