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

    Pros

    - Flexible hours
    - Nice/easy going staff

    Cons

    - Minimum wage despite extensive experience.
    - The location I worked at was a disorganized mess, making the job very frustrating at times.
    - Outdated computer system
    - No benefits or rewards, absolutely no incentive to go above and beyond.
    - 10% employee discount is an absolute joke. They also don't give employees Canadian Tire money, so technically, the discount is less than 10%.
    - Was deducted money from every pay cheque for "social fund," to pay for staff social events and outings, yet there was not a single staff event in my time there. Where does this money go?
    - Very greedy company
    - Highest staff turnover rate I have ever seen in a business.
    - Store has no pride in itself, an absolute mess.
    - Cheap, irritating, low class clientele.
    - Absolutely no training. Siting your new staff in front of a computer for 10 hours is not training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The managers do their job, but the entire organization has incredibly low standards.

    Pros

    close to home, chances for advancment, good work environment, treated with respect mostly friendly staff. Company discount is great.

    Cons

    Working with unfriendly customers, crappy hours /shift work . Not enough pay for what is expected from you needs better management because each store is a franchise.
