I have been working at Kal Tire

Pros

Compensation is above average nationally
Opportunity for advancement is superb
Will pay to relocate your family wherever you would like to be in canada (after a certain level)
has a very structured system in place

Cons

VERY POOR work life balance
Sr management does not recognize the commitments made by middle management
Working 120-140 hours per pay period is expected

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please take note of the hours the people are putting in, and understand that it affects not only the people in the positions, but their families as well. As a company, you will lose great people because of the expectation of hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My big mouth got me in trouble. I let management know that I was planning on attending university soon. I was making top-dollar at the time and I suppose they didn't think it was business-savvy to keep me on the payroll if I'm just going to be temporary. They invented a reason to fire me and did so shortly after they learned of my future plans. I had put in 3 hardworking years with them, and they tossed me in the garbage at the drop of a hat.
