    Be as transparent as possible, communicate often and be visible within your team; walk around, say hello, great job, thank you. It goes a long way!

    Co Workers

    Cons

    -Supervisor

    -Limited weekends off, no method to the madness of scheduling

    Advice to Management

    Ensure supervisors are doing their job correctly & not bullying employees/making empty threats.

    "AVOID the Finance department here."

    Pros

    Fair pay, reasonable work/life balance, the company itself is doing well, and they try to treat employees well. Most departments seem to be reasonably well run.

    Cons

    The Finance department at CTFS is awful. There has been HIGH TURNOVER and MANY STRESS LEAVES in this department in my 2 years here. There have also been a few HR cases for mistreatment of employees. This is all in a 20-25 person department. I do not see how HR does not notice notice this trend and step in to do something. You are nothing to the Management but a means to an end, they have no problem lying to you and mistreating you.

    Advice to Management

    Stop mistreating employees and they might stay. Your people are your greatest asset, start treating them like it. Again, this is more geared towards the Finance department, not so much Canadian Tire as a company.
