Pros

Nice people to work with, kept busy with heavy work load makes the day go faster. Flexible autonomy in merchandising creates nice creative challenge.

Cons

Horrible management, don't care about customer service. Heavy work load with little pay. Offered employee discount if training done. Did not receive one. Not enough labour on the sales floor.

Advice to Management

Become more customer service orienteed or lose market share to target. Too much focus on stocking. Spend time developing employees careers to reduce turnover.

    Pros

    - Work Life Balance was decent
    - Management support for personal development.

    Cons

    - Culture was very limiting to move project fast and efficient.
    - Too many meetings that were a waste of time - due to everyone wanting consensus on small decisions.
    - Too much politics among employees who have been there long, not quick to adapt to change.
    - New hires from fast paced environments get backlash and receive a difficult time from existing employees.
    - Not an Agile project environment and projects take too long to implement.

    Advice to Management

    Need to make the culture shift to Agile , Adaptive and Entrepreneur spirit if CanTire is to stay competitive in the market place. Support change and ideas from new employees. Stephen Wetmore coming from a Telecom background, understands fast to market and staying competitive however, it seems this process is taking long and there to be more mid- senior leadership with the entrepreneur mind set and willing to embrace change.

  2. Could be great...but isn't

    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 Management

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