    Pros

    Good benefits & nice corporate office

    Cons

    Very cliquey. I went to my own Christmas party & one of the other employees asked me what I was doing there. Also a complaint was made against me that my dress was too sexy. However I was actually interviewed & hired by the HR team & my manager while wearing the very same dress.

    Former Employee - Replenishment Analyst 

    I worked at Canadian Tire full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    As a supply chain analyst, you get a lot of support from the training team and other co-workers on your team. A good way to practice negotiation (with vendors) and lots of opportunities to build new macros and tools.

    Cons

    It takes about 6 months to one year to become good at what you are doing. After that, things become a little repetitive. But they require you to be at the job for at least two and half years. Most people leave because of this.

    Cons

  10. "Disorganised and terrible management and coworkers."

    1.0
     

    I worked at Canadian Tire

    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.
