Canadian Tire – Why Work For Us?

Canadian Tire Corporation, Limited is one of Canada's most-shopped general retailers and the country's largest sporting goods retailer, with more than 1,700 retail and gasoline outlets from coast-to-coast. Our primary retail business categories - Automotive, Living, Fixing, Sports, Playing and Apparel - are supported and strengthened by our Financial Services division. For 90 years we have been preparing Canadians for everyday life in Canada.

Today, Canadian Tire employs nearly 85,000 people across the country. Through the strength of our family of businesses, which include Canadian Tire Retail, Canadian Tire Gas+, PartSource, Canadian Tire Financial Services, Mark’sand FGL Sports, the Canadian Tire brand stands apart in its commitment to innovation, breadth of product offerings and overall value for consumers.

Only an experienced retailer like Canadian Tire can understand the things Canadians hold dear because they are dear to us as well. We celebrate the changing of the seasons along with Canadians. We obsess about hockey and make fixing fun. No one knows the ins and outs of cars and driving like we do.

90 years after its inception, Canadian Tire has a history of evolving to reflect the everyday needs and wants of Canadians. Our businesses serve the breadth of our customers’ needs. Our iconic brand holds 98% instant recognition among Canadians. That’s the power of the Canadian Tire triangle.

 

 

 

 

Putting the customer at the centre of everything we do is essential to providing a high-quality and consistent customer experience across our network of more than 1,700 retail and gasoline outlets. Through our cutting edge store design, digital marketing, e-commerce and the use of leading-edge customer analytics, award winning call centre and state of the art distribution centres, Canadian Tire is continually evolving so we are better able to respond to the changing expectations of consumers.

For our employees, this means working in a dynamic environment that champions and invests in innovation. At Canadian Tire, strong leadership and a talented team are our greatest assets.>  We are a successful and growing company that values diversity and innovative thinking, and fosters a culture of performance and accountability. Canadian Tire’s family of businesses gives employees the opportunity to explore career paths across our many brands. In our retail stores and gas outlets, and at our corporate head offices across the country, our employees are passionate and committed to helping us build our reputation as one of the best places to work in Canada.

“Strive always to make things better”was our founder A.J. Billes’ mantra, and today our success depends on our ability to empower our employees to make things better for our customers.  Retailers that will thrive today are those who can continuously innovate, adapt and change quickly – both in our understanding of the customer and in every aspect of our day-to-day business processes.

As Canadian Tire continues to grow, we need our employees to grow with us. Working in a collaborative environment alongside likeminded colleagues and inspiring leaders, you’ll have access to training and development opportunities to help you reach your career potential. The “strive always to makes things better” mantra starts with our employees; our total rewards plan focuses on your health, your wealth and your well-being so you can focus on the things that matter to you.
