I worked at Canadian Tire full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

-flexible scheduling (although I suppose this would depend on the individual store manager) -If you stay with the company for 10 years you may just get promoted to manager and get $1.50/hour over minimum wage! oh wait, this is probably a con....

Cons

-After many years, I was still getting minimum wage because instead of giving raises at certain intervals as stated in the employment contract, raises were given just before minimum wage increases. -Unstable scheduling which sometimes changes multiple times per day -Management's "my way or the highway" attitude -Many violations of health and safety laws -Management unclear on local labor laws -Unstable hours (never 40 hours per week) -Unsafe conditions (example, filling car batteries with a siphon hose) -My 1st day of training was the manager saying "those are customers, go nuts" then walking away -Worst example of poisoned work environment that I have ever come across -Scheduling is often changed during your day off without being told so you now have to be in at 8:00 AM instead of noon, but you aren't told, or better yet giving employees shifts when they weren't scheduled to work. -You will never get 2 days in a row off (if you do, refer to above point) -In more than 5 years I MAY have had 2 weekends off -Employees regularly being told to stay later/leave earlier due to poorly made schedules

Advice to Management

Step down and let people manage the business who know how and have proper training

    I worked at Canadian Tire full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    You'd get a dealer that really took care of their employees

    Cons

    You'd get a dealer that didn't care about their employees, no matter how long they had been with the company

    Advice to Management

    take better care of employees, and they'll take care of the store better
