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

    I worked at Canadian Tire part-time for 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.
