    I worked at Rexall full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    A chance to meet a varied population of customers and employees. The company gives back to the community, which is great. Benefits, if you can get them, are fairly decent.

    Cons

    Kicked out via the union agreement after 5 years of dedicated service when the company started to downsize. No job security, not even after 5 years. Offered a position in another city that was inaccessible to me, too far too practically commute, as commiseration --- kind of a huge "Eff you" from the upper management.

    Advice to Management

    To upper management: Get your crap together --- Rexall just went on a hiring spree after getting rid of a bunch of full-time employees 2.5 years ago. Can you afford these people, or can't you? I would be afraid to re-join such an indecisive company. I would fear for my job security every minute of being employed there. Thank u, next.

    I worked at Rexall full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    People in the stores who work themselves to the bone for the company and upper management.

    Cons

    Favouritism at higher level Intimidation at higher level Not enough hours at any level to get all the work done. Stressed, exhausted and overworked employees leaving no room for work life balance Positive culture should flow from the top

    Advice to Management

    Be kind. You don’t know what struggles some people are going through. Be appreciative. People will work extra hard knowing they are appreciated. Be respectful. No matter the position or title.

    I worked at Rexall

    Pros

    None to think of.

    Cons

    Everything. Worst experience in a lifetime. No support for hours to run the business. Working minimum 60 hours in a week. Horrible upper management that run their stores like robots from computers and don't look at reality.

    Advice to Management

    Dump your Phoenix and Bestway garbage that adds 10 times the workload. And dump all your ego headed Walmart castoffs.

    Pros

    Local store staff are dedicated and hard working.

    Upper management has no idea how to run a business. They don't understand opportunity cost and labor requirements.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more hours for minimum wage workers in the pharmacy. Less walkouts and transfers will occur.
