    It was okay as upper management would try to help you, everything else is up to you.

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

    Pros

    Autonomy, social interaction, confidence building, experience stressful environments due to social pressures. The workplace environment is dependant on your coworkers, before I left i noticed they moved those that created a toxic work environment into positions where they would not be in contact with customers, meaning management were looking after its employees and customer's well being

    Cons

    Disincentive when company's logistics does not help with your current job. Lack of evaluation of product knowledge is apparent, as managers will not test you. The product knowledge tests done on the computer is not learned, but only done to receive the bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on making your logistics better if you plan to be a good retail store, as it causes you to lose much profits.
