    Pros

    Positive work environment, indoors and out of the weather, decent wages for the type of work, opportunities for advancement, flexible schedule (for part-time)

    Cons

    Poor work/life balance, late hours (open until 10 most nights) unpredictable schedule. Never(ever) have time off during Christmas holidays.

    Advice to Management

    No advice for management. It's a tough job that gets more criticism than praise.

    I have been working at London Drugs

    Pros

    Managers are really flexible and will definitely try to work around your needs. Great coworkers and the work environment is really smooth paced.

    Cons

    Helping customers can take a while, so sometimes people waiting to be helped can pile up quickly. Scheduling properly can help avoid these issues.
