Very Easy Interview

Cashier Interview

Cashier
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Canadian Tire in April 2012.

Interview Details – I simply do not have any advice, they took me in almost without any questions because a relative of mine referred me and was only there to review the rules, and job responsibilities. Wasn't asked many (any) questions.

Interview Question – Is this your first cash job?   View Answers (3)

Negotiation Details – got hired, and got to work. I didn't care about my schedule and it was my first job so I was okay with minimum wage.

Cashier Interview

Cashier
Windsor, ON (Canada)

I applied in-person and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Canadian Tire in March 2011.

Interview Details – I applied for the job in person after hearing from the friend of a worker that the management preferred a hand-in to online. I was initially contacted in the beginning of March (three weeks after my hand-in), but it took until the beginning of April before they were prepared to schedule an interview. It then took a further four weeks with two follow-up calls before they would give me a decision regarding the position. I found the whole process really lengthy without any reasonable excuse.

Interview Question – "Do you have a history of on-the-job accidents? We get a lot of those here."   View Answer

Category Implementation Specialist Interview

Category Implementation Specialist
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I interviewed at Canadian Tire in July 2013.

Interview Details – After the initial online application there is a phone screen with an HR representative. The phone screen will ask about your understanding of the role and its place in the company, your experience and how it relates to the company, etc.

After the phone screen, if you are successful, you will interview with the hiring manager. This interview will differ based on the hiring manager as there is no pre-set question list and the manager may ask whatever questions they like. Be prepared for questions about your experience and how it will relate to the role, your comfort and ability with Excel and Access, and about your problem solving skills. Also be prepared to explain some of the strengths/weaknesses of the category you're interviewing for. Again depending on the hiring manager and the number of roles open, you may be invited back to interview with a Vice President and/or another manager, or you might get an offer after the initial interview.

Interview Question – Was asked for a competitive analysis of the company in the category I was interviewing for.   Answer Question
