    I have been working at Canadian Tire full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Customer focused with a keen understanding in conflict resolution and customer facing operations. You have opertunity to gain high CSI scores for the store

    Cons

    not enough pull to control store wide execution of customer facing operations. if you aren't in charge of all managers you will just spin your wheels and not yield CSI results you desire.

    Advice to Management

    Let your customer experience managers have highest authority when it comes to customer facing operations and execution. don't let them get hen pecked by the peanut gallery...

    Pros

    Great company when in school, flexible hours and awesome people to work with.

    Cons

    Pay is low and if not in school to get more money then its extremely hard to live off of the pay. Sometimes there's drama mixed between the employees and its annoying to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Give the fulltime employees enough money to live off of. Give them raises every 6 months and treat them with respect.

    I worked at Canadian Tire part-time

    Pros

    I worked at Canadian Tire warehouse while I was going to school. They have great managers and training programs. Good place to work.

    Cons

    The hours were long. Had a 10 hour shift Saturday and Sunday. Not much time to do anything after work. But it was still a great place to work while in school.

    Advice to Management

    Good job keep doing what you are doing.
    They kept employees updated with the State of the tire to inform employees of the company.
    Great gift boxes for Christmas.

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

    Pros

    The people that work there in the floor usually are very nice individuals. The customers can be quite nice and can be good to network with sometimes. Depends on the department, some are better to work in than others.

    Cons

    The management is absolutely terrible. They micromanage every single aspect of the store, to the point where you can't even do your job without being harassed by some department manager or supervisor. The management was quite condescending at my store. Some customers can be terrible individuals.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging your employees.

    Pros

    Great place to learn supply chain. Training is great & good pay for a first job. Culture is fun, always a pleasure to come to work every day.

    Cons

    No upward movement potential. You must laterally move a few times over many years in order to move up a pay level.

    Advice to Management

    They need to be better at recognising peoples ability. People work hard & want to progress, but are not able to do so easily.
