  2. "Disorganised and terrible management and coworkers."

    Pros

    They hire just about anyone. If you need a job quickly than fill out a form and start that afternoon. The staff room is spacious.

    Cons

    The management take advantage of you. If you show up on time you can trust they will always only give you the worst shifts. Closing shifts. Management keeps you there past your shift if you're closings, so don't count on ever making post-work plans.

    If you want a raise you have to "qualify" by completing E-learning but only on your own time and without compensation.

    There are different standards if uniform. If you are like everyone else that means black dress pants with your red shirt tucked in. If you are friends with a manager it means yoga pants and shirt untucked. But it doesn't matter anyways because they spend most of their shift in the break room or smoking outside.

    They schedule as few people as possible so if you have to use the bathroom you better run. 13 people will stop you along the way for assistance.

    Advice to Management

    Get a real job.

    I worked at Canadian Tire part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Not to many hours, can balance work/home. Some employes are nice.

    Cons

    Low pay, VERY unorganized, barely any training. Taught myself pretty much everything. Warehouse is so messy and un safe it's ridiculous. It's not a safe working condition at all and at any time a heavy box can fall from the top shelf and hurt someone. No safety is taught or encouraged by the staff or managers. Workload is too heavy for warehouse employees. Never got my breaks until so much later in my shift and sometimes never got them at all. I highly recommend that you do NOT apply at Canadian tire for the Managers are terrible and they need to change the way things are before someone goes back into the warehouse and gets severely hurt.

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees, encourage safety and keep the warehouse clean.
