    Pros

    working at canadian tire is great because they are very good at managing my hours and it is a very friendly work environement.

    Cons

    just like any job it can get very boring and repetitive and since it's a retail store you always have to deal with annoying customers.

    Advice to Management

    pay us better wages especially when we've been working there for a long time because at my location no one ever gets a raise unless they become manager or team lead which is almost never open

    Cons

    -Boys Club
    -Nepotism
    -Lower standard salaries in some departments

    Advice to Management

    My advice to CTC upper management is to stop, think and realize that you are a sexist old boys club! Despite the Chair of the board being female and a few other token woman sprinkled in near the top, woman are blatantly not valued as much as men are. There is a Woman's Network at CT to help combat this, as the sexism is very obvious within the company. However, this Woman's Network has absolutely no power to affect change. Not surprising!
    Senior Management - all company employees, should be treated and paid equally.
