Loved working for Priceline. If you love a fast paced work environment and have a passion for customer service then it is a great job. Lovely group of people to work with everyday.

Biggest mistake of my life!

I was hired as a Beauty advisor for Priceline and was never properly trained on how to do tasks. It was extremely high demanding job that managers where never satisfied. They threw me in hoping I would just work it out for myself.. although I had no pharmacy background. I spent all but 4 days with another BA and I guess they thought it was enough training. The worst part about it is I never got to do anyone’s makeup!!!!!

Decent Workplace

bad on your knees and back, can be slow and customers can be rude but if you have a good boss and work mates youre fine. doing unders and organising shelves are boring, chemist warehouse is a huge competitor.

Regret

I regret working for Priceline. The management is AWFUL, they do not care about their employees one bit. They were so strict, I wasn’t allowed to talk to other employees in the store. I wasn’t allowed to go out of my designated aisle. And they would watch us on the cameras, so you couldn’t even try. So I would spend all day, every day, in my 1 aisle, without talking to any other staff. It was miserable. The training was also pretty slack, as this was my first pharmacy job I expected some training within the store, but they left me to my own devices. And just like a lot of other staff, working for Priceline made my depression and anxiety go through the roof. I’m happy I don’t work there now, but if I could go back in time, I would’ve never applied there. I wasted too many months of my life being sad and miserable, and they were months I will never get back. As for pros and cons, I can’t even say the staff discount is a pro, because it’s so low that you’re always better off buying something that’s on sale and paying the same price as the customer.

Pros

You get paid (the most minimum they could possibly legally pay you)

Cons

Everything

Cons

Not the greatest pay

Teamwork

It doesn’t feel like you are working when you work in an environment that feels like home and have colleagues who treat you like family. I do grow old with you; Priceline Pharmacy World Square.

Pros

Get to see, touch and feel new product before it goes on the floor in public

Cons

Salaries

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?

Its ok..

I have worked at Priceline for 6 years now for different owners. It is obviously easier at some stores then others. Its usually constantly a busy store. Pros - Friends - Meeting new customers - Working with new products - Building rapport with customers Cons - Management/owners can be hard - You get put on shifts not in your workplace agreement and are expected to do the shift - Minimum wage - Have to seek most knowledge yourself - Expected to assist in areas that are not your department

Professional Space

I liked how everyone who worked at priceline always put effort into their appearances as well as customer service well-being. The atmosphere at priceline isn't overbearing like most makeup stores yet it's not as dingy as your regular drug stores.

Pros

Proffesionalism

Warm friendly workplace

It really is like becoming part of a family. It is such a shame that upper management in the eastern states have no idea and constantly change things for no reason and make it very difficult for us to run the store.

Pros

Wonderful friendly colleagues and customers

Cons

Short staffed, high volume of theft

Productive and Fun Workplace

It was great! I learnt alot about management, the store and it was also enjoyable. I found that I was excited to work my shifts and was comfortable with my colleagues as they were all friendly and welcoming - the hardest part of the job was the uncertain amount of hours given in a week and dealing with difficult customers who steal from the store as we are located in the city.

Pros

15 Minute Breaks Every 4 Hours

Cons

Unset Shift Hours
