    I have been working at Canadian Tire full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to get experience with a variety of positions in retail.

    Cons

    A great place to literally get your experience and move on to get better pay elsewhere. Usual office politics with the usual favouritism to employees. Salaries are a bit on the mid-low end to average.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to keep the cultivated talent in-house, start looking to reward employees that work hard. Or you will literally just be a stepping stone for most peoples careers.

    Pros

    Fast paced environment, expressing creativity when merchandising assigned aisles, dealing with satisfied customers, working with so many upbeat staff.

    Priorities aren't always in order, issues with staff need to be addressed more assertively or sooner than they are.
