    Advice to Management

    It would be great if they can pay more for staffs work in some busy stores. If they can provide high chairs to the cashiers will be great, like T&T , ...etc

    I have been working at London Drugs part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Commission and opportunities for learning and schooling in the beauty community

    Cons

    Guilt tripping behaviour and forcing to put aside post-secondary education for work. Does not approve vacation requests unless you are management/full time. They claim they can’t have a person missing.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t hire students unless you are able to accommodate respectfully.

    I have been working at London Drugs part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Fairly decent discount. 20% off regular priced and clearance items.

    Cons

    There are numerous sales/return policies in place, but there is ZERO backup from management when you try and enforce those rules. Customer brings an item to return that is not returnable? Management will make you return it, causing massive losses to stores bottom line. Shift selection is bad, you don't really get to pick, they just give you what they want. They will ask for more availability than you are able to... give. Pay is very low, considering the new minimum wage. Wage scale hardly keeps up with inflation. Been with the company nearly 5 years now and only make 61 cents over the starting wage. Head office is very disconnected with store level issues, ask us to exceed goals that are simply impossible in certain locations. Marketing is terrible, basically non-existent for the RTG/TECH departments.

    I worked here for a little over 6 months. The team is lovely and care for each other. Bright and positive environment. Many loyal customers who will come back time and again. Professional attire, which brings helps foster professional image and behavior. Many managers have worked at LD a long time and are patient with you. They stock cool and different products. Nice discounts for employee. Different courses... to help professional development.
