      If you love working around anything beauty related, it’s fun! Lots of commission to make based on how much you can sell, decent work environment depending on your store, you never get bored! Great health benefits.

      Cons

      Working for Shoppers overall was a good experience. The employee discount is very good.

      My location was poorly managed and although the owner associate knew about it, nothing was really done, particularly to help the younger employees who took the brunt of the mismanagement.
