Really nice place to work, the other staff were very helpful and hardworking. Learned a lot about a variety of different products, placing orders, merchandising, make up appointments, making hampers and gift packs for customers. Was always busy but never felt overloaded with work as everyone would work together to get the job done! I even enjoyed working the Christmas period there which is usually quite stressful! Only downside to the job is the pay is very low and was let go after Christmas with a very short notice due to budget. Overall it was a great experience that unfortunately came to an abrupt end.
Pros
Lovely staff, nice managers, team work, christmas gifts
Cons
Very low pay, hours can be cut suddenly

They need to respect their staff more for what they do. Teach their so called supervisors knowledge of their areas in charge or even have a supervisor who knows what they are doing. Pay is terrible for long hours as well as not communicating with the staff.
Pros
Friendly enough staff
Cons
Long hours, no canteen and not even training

My typical day of work in Mc Cabes was recording the delivery, stacking shelves, I would help out with the passport photos and also helping a customer find what he/she was looking for.
The staff and management were so friendly and so easy to talk to and get along with.

The hardest part of the job was probablt for me recording the delivery and checking to make sure everything was delivered because the scanners would just stop working sometimes.

The most enjoyable part was getting to know the staff and the fun we had in the break room.
Pros
Getting to meet new people
Cons
There was no con for me personally

All the staff are kind, polite and helpful. I found stocking the shelves the most difficult job as there were fragile and expensive products to handle.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time in McCabe's pharmacy. I was able to work as a sales assistant, as a stock room assistant, as a cashier. As a result, I was always able to enjoy my time working there.

Mi paso por la empresa fue breve pero fue una oportunidad para perfeccionar mi ingles y tener contacto con el publico en general en un país de habla inglesa.

Fue muy dinámico y todo el equipo era muy respetuoso.

During a typical day at work I enjoy helping customers who visit our store looking for advice on health and beauty.

I have met some really nice people on my journey with McCabes and I feel I need to move on to progress my career in this field.


The hardest part of the job is dealing with middle management as there is constant changes and I feel that I'm being left behind as a result if this.


The most enjoyable part of the job is doing something that I love and have a lot passion for.
Pros
Sales Reps - Free goods :-)
Cons
Working hours are not consistant
