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

    Pros

    Dealing with the public is always fun
    Work goes by quickly
    Nice to have a job at all
    Job relatively simply

    Cons

    Felt exploited as was put on 5 hour shifts without a break and never more hours than that so my breaks never had to be paid
    Standing for 5 hours straight
    Had a very negative and short-tempered manager
    Was given very few hours in a week despite being entirely free, partly so I never had to be paid benefits because I could never be full-time with those hours (similar situation all around the company)
    Employees that had worked there for years were looking for other jobs because their hours were being cut down

    Advice to Management

    Fire people and give others more hours and more benefits to encourage employee loyalty
    Bring back motivational bonuses
    Ensure group ideas sessions happen more often and changes are actually implemented

    Great Company and benefits, Room for advancement. Its smart to continually switch up jobs every 2-3 years. Focus on training in various roles throughout the company.

    Cons

    Departments and jobs change constantly. If you see this coming or sense it look for another role internally.

    Advice to Management

    None.
