I have been working at Canadian Tire full-time

Pros

Interesting work; dynamic brand; lots of excitement around future of company; feels good to think you can make a difference to the staying power of such an iconic Canadian brand. I would recommend this place to a friend as long as they had an understanding of what they were in for. It is good experience to have on your resume in the end.

Cons

Very bureaucratic; if you want to stay in the same field it's difficult to move up the ranks; pay is nothing to write home about.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of bureaucracy; fix antiquated internal processes; employees have great ideas but the obstacles to making them happen are many!

    I have been working at Canadian Tire part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - paid training (up to a certain amount of online courses)
    - supportive great supervisors/management
    - recognition of employees in newsletters

    Cons

    - if you're in a specialized department like hardware, it really helps to have DIY knowledge, online courses can only do so much
    - AS400 program can be a pain to use sometimes as search queries may not find what you want
    - Online website can also be a pain to use as it may be hard to find what the customer is looking for , may be better off with Google search

    I have been working at Canadian Tire part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Most of the staff is friendly

    Cons

    Customers aren't as patient/understanding when shopping at Canadian Tire (compared to other stores)
    Low wages
    Low hours
    Disrespect from management (often)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more staff, and extend work hours for those who need it. Instead of scheduling an employee for ten 5hr days in a row, give them longer hours over a span of less days. If an employee works part time hours, yet nearly every day, it starts to seem like a waste of time.
    Instead of going through a quickly moving cycyle of employees, pay employees more so they will stay with the company. Also, check up on how your employees are being treated by management. Negative experiences are what gets rid of the worker bees.
