    I have been working at Canadian Tire Financial Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    a lot of interaction with various teams, there are a lot of good people. You are to drive several days a week after the probationary period. there is an opportunity to increase your vacation period at the expense of flex dollars if your manager is OK; except for the team lunches and great meetings with the top management, there is no team building

    Cons

    Huge dependency on your manager's mood and attitude, low opportunity to grow

    Advice to Management

    create the development path for the employees

    Pros

    This company literally has no idea what they are doing. They would rather bring in people from other banks then grow within and will hold back talent at any turn.

    I wouldn't recommend this place to someone in the unemployment line.

    Cons

    There are far to many to list but it all starts with management and their unwillingness to change anything that simply needs to be changed. It is embarrassing how management can't do the jobs they are managing others to do.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to overhaul yourselves. Management literally needs to be replaced and refocus on the culture because you have ruined it.

    I worked at Canadian Tire Financial Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, work from home, and bonuses. Not much else other than perhaps location. Christmas gift but they have become cheap and lame.

    Cons

    Extremely poor management with little to no experience No growth opportunities. No loyalty. Overworked and under appreciated analysts and marketers.

    Advice to Management

    Middle management needs to change and increase pay to at least what industry average is.
