    Current Employee - Cash Supervisor 

    I have been working at Shoppers Drug Mart full-time

    Pros

    I have a great location with great coworkers. Work life balance is great.

    Cons

    For a big corporation the benefits suck. 3$ per chiro visit is nothing I dont even bother submitting it. For a company that pushes self care and health youd think the employees would have a way more comprehensive benefits package. Had minimal dental work done this year and its already maxed out.
