    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...

    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.

    I have been working at Canadian Tire full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    i think it is a good company i also believe in the company culture. i like that the company likes sports and i am proud of the sponsorships in sports, such as the olympic sponsorship, and the charity it promotes, Jumpstart.

    Cons

    i believe that like many large retailers it can be difficult to adapt to change and adapt to digital and ecommerce and effectively use data analytics

    Advice to Management

    canadian tire needs to do more to promote internally. additionally, they need to adapt to change and be more dynamic. people most often leave because the pay is below average, or they get frustrated with the difficulty to advance

    Pros

    All the colleagues are friendly
    Recently the store has been renovated and it look more spacious now
    Flexible work schedule

    Cons

    Low income
    monotonous work
    You can easily get bored if you have long hour shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Replace all stupid supervisors and train them to make proper schedules.
    Encourage job rotation so that employees can multitask and can learn different tasks at the same time

    Pros

    The company treats employees very well, lots of exciting extra events such as employee recognition events, kids Christmas party, Seasonal gift box, employee skate at the Air Canada Centre. Lots of great people. Fantastic employer

    Cons

    Like any large organization HR policies can be a drag, but not really specific to CT. Though you're treated well, the almighty $ rules all.

    I worked at Canadian Tire (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employee engagement is a focus, great sample sales, good salary and great bonuses. Management is treated well. Individual contributors not so much. I was laid off and while I only worked there for 2.5 years, the severance package was almost 8 months - very generous.

    Cons

    Every few years they clean house and downsize significantly. People feel a bit afraid to lose their jobs. Not great people managers (AVPs). Very political. A great place to spend no more than 2 years at. Make some good money, get some great experience and move on.

    Advice to Management

    Be less formal and political. A warm, informal corporate culture produces far better results.
