    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Canadian Tire in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Culture is warm. Vetted through my resume, then a meeting with HR first, followed by an interview by the person I would be reporting to, 3rd interview was with his manager for approval, and then a 4th for overall review approval again with HR and my report to. It came down to myself and one other.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Canadian Tire in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process consisted of a phone interview with HR, and two 1:1 interviews with the hiring manager and HR and the AVP.

    The interviewers were nice and the environment was quite relaxed, other than the pressure that I had put on myself. So try and relax for your interview.

    Interview Questions
    • What business issues would you consider while preparing a forecast   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There was not much room for negotiation. The salary band for each role is pretty much fixed, so you can only negotiate the highest salary within the band which usually is not so much as the range is not high.
