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

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

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 ManagementAdvice

-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.
