A good job for part time workers, those looking to make a few bucks for Christmas or those entering the work force.

Cashier (Former Employee)
Saint John, NB (Canada)

Pros-Doesn't have to be full time hours.
-Pretty flexible for vacation/time off needs (for full time employees).
-Very good initial online training.
-Friendly co-workers who are usually very willing to help you learn new things.
-TONS of hours during the sales seasons.
-The supervisor is very approachable.

Cons-Training is minimal after the job commences.
-Standing through the shift is hard on your feet.
-The hours dry up to almost nothing after the holidays (for new employees).

Advice to Senior Management-Give cashiers a stool to lean on.
-Don't worry so much about them being idle during times they are not checking people out.
-Have actual work for the cashier to do during those times and the time won't be wasted. But in truth? The cashier is so busy during check out rushes that a bit of time to gather yourself in between is probably a healthy thing anyways.
-If a new employee can work more than 40 hours a week during the sales seasons please find a way to offer that same employee more than 4 hours the week after the sales period ends.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Terrible hours (very few)

    Cashier (Former Employee)
    Kingston, ON (Canada)

    I worked at Canadian Tire part-time for less than a year


    Pros: Dealing with the public is always fun Work goes by quickly Nice… Cons: Felt exploited as was put on 5 hour shifts without a break and never more hours than that so my breaks never had to be… Advice to Senior Management: Fire people and give others more hours and more benefits to encourage employee loyalty Bring… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
