    I worked at Canadian Tire full-time (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.

    I have been working at Canadian Tire part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This was my very first job and I'm glad I went through it! It really teaches you a lot about good customer service and many other things such as communication, organization, and social skills.
    - easy application process
    - mostly friendly co-workers
    - supportive management
    - flexible schedule for students
    - time goes by fast during busy times
    - good staff discount

    Cons

    - hard to deal with angry customers, but management has always got your back
    - pricing errors are fairly common
    - can't move outside of till to help customers
    - when it gets really busy it's hard to get help from floor staff
    - if you clock out early/late you don't get paid the full hour

    Advice to Management

    - schedule more people during peak hours so that angry customers won't be so impatient

    Pros

    Great place to work, welcoming environment with a good corporate culture. Location of the office is in a great area for commuters.

    Cons

    Hard work and results are not always valued. A lot of emphasis on who you know vs what you do.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to create an environment where people feel they are able to make mistakes, and have support. It will encourage employees to pursue opportunities with high rewards.

    I worked at Canadian Tire full-time

    Pros

    The atmosphere was good; the staff were like a family. Benefits were offered, though I already had my own, so I can't say if theirs were any good. If you want full time hours you can get them, but it may require training in other departments. The hours were flexible, and they worked around my schooling and other schedule requests. They recognize good employees. The profit sharing is fantastic, and I really miss that.

    Cons

    Management. They were discriminatory and incredibly sexist. After three years of working there, my manager left and I more-or-less assumed the role without being asked. Then, when I asked to officially have that role, they told me no because I "was too young and had coloured hair and piercings." If management doesn't like you, then you'll never get a raise and you'll barely get any profit sharing.

    Advice to Management

    Get with the modern days. Update your policies and dress codes. Don't discriminate. Value your employees.
