    I have been working at Shoppers Drug Mart part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Low stress company to work for,

    Cons

    Management can be very disorganized and wages are stagnant, they won't pay a dime over minimum wage unless you're on a salary. Having different managers for different departments means there are widely differing expectations from multiple bosses who all expect that you answer to them.
