    I have been working at Giant Tiger full-time

    Pros

    Some staff are fantastic and know what it is to put in a sold days work. Other staff fell that there job is safe and do the minimum they can because they know how difficult it is for an employer to fire them.

    Cons

    The over all corporate structure needs to be looked at. Different rates of pay. Bonuses. how many hours are aloud for staff. And how many employees are to be hired or how many for each department are way to different from store to store. These things need to be addressed and need to be a lot more simular between all stores. Also owners/operators should have more control over the products they are selling in there stores. There is to much corporate interference forcing stores to sell what they tell them to.

    Pros

    Your co-workers make working there much more manageable. They have good benefits for fulltime and partime They have a company bonus every year for fulltime and partime If you are eager you can learn and grow with the company as you choose. They have management programs that help you on route to owning your own store. They're charitable

    Cons

    Low pay-minimum wage if you're an associate. The real money comes from being a store manager/owner. If you get a bad manager at your store it will be unbearable to work there. Since there is no on staff HR and the manager is the problem you have contact Home Office. Easier just to quit and find happiness somewhere else.
