    I worked at Canadian Tire full-time

    Pros

    There is room for growth if you're inclined to pursue it - supervisor and manager positions are attainable and pay reasonably well. The franchise structure means you could own a store one day and make really good money if you're so inclined. Store-level experience can also be an asset when looking for a position with the corporation.

    Profit sharing is a nice bonus that a lot of retail jobs don't offer.

    Cons

    Retail hours can be a downer (but this is true of any retail position). Some stores are better than others, and because they're all independently owned you can't just transfer between them like some other companies might let you.


  2. "A good job for part time workers, those looking to make a few bucks for Christmas or those entering the work force."

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

    Pros

    -Doesn't have to be full time hours.
    -Pretty flexible for vacation/time off needs (for full time employees).
    -Very good initial online training.
    -Friendly co-workers who are usually very willing to help you learn new things.
    -TONS of hours during the sales seasons.
    -The supervisor is very approachable.

    Cons

    -Training is minimal after the job commences.
    -Standing through the shift is hard on your feet.
    -The hours dry up to almost nothing after the holidays (for new employees).

    Advice to Management

    -Give cashiers a stool to lean on.
    -Don't worry so much about them being idle during times they are not checking people out.
    -Have actual work for the cashier to do during those times and the time won't be wasted. But in truth? The cashier is so busy during check out rushes that a bit of time to gather yourself in between is probably a healthy thing anyways.
    -If a new employee can work more than 40 hours a week during the sales seasons please find a way to offer that same employee more than 4 hours the week after the sales period ends.
