    I worked at Canadian Tire full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -flexible scheduling (although I suppose this would depend on the individual store manager)
    -If you stay with the company for 10 years you may just get promoted to manager and get $1.50/hour over minimum wage! oh wait, this is probably a con....

    Cons

    -After many years, I was still getting minimum wage because instead of giving raises at certain intervals as stated in the employment contract, raises were given just before minimum wage increases.
    -Unstable scheduling which sometimes changes multiple times per day
    -Management's "my way or the highway" attitude
    -Many violations of health and safety laws
    -Management unclear on local labor laws
    -Unstable hours (never 40 hours per week)
    -Unsafe conditions (example, filling car batteries with a siphon hose)
    -My 1st day of training was the manager saying "those are customers, go nuts" then walking away
    -Worst example of poisoned work environment that I have ever come across
    -Scheduling is often changed during your day off without being told so you now have to be in at 8:00 AM instead of noon, but you aren't told, or better yet giving employees shifts when they weren't scheduled to work.
    -You will never get 2 days in a row off (if you do, refer to above point)
    -In more than 5 years I MAY have had 2 weekends off
    -Employees regularly being told to stay later/leave earlier due to poorly made schedules

    Advice to Management

    Step down and let people manage the business who know how and have proper training
