Overall Canadian Tire is a great place to work...
DEPARTMENT MANAGER / ASSISTANT STORE MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Spruce Grove, ABJune 28, 2016
Over the years Canadian Tire has evolved with the times, it is a fast paced exciting enviroment... The best part of the job is the interactions with not only the customers but with the staff themselves. I have put in many long hours over the years but always see the fruits of my labors.
Pros
Benefits were good, profit sharing
Cons
Many long hours, not getting stat days.

Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Scarborough, ONJune 17, 2016
Generally a very busy place to be. Constantly new things to learn about in general such as new products, computer programs and different types of customers to tend to. Never a dull day, constantly work to do keeping the day interesting. Hardest part of the job are the exceptionally long hours.

Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Vaughan, ONJune 10, 2016
Life at Canadian Tire is not the best. The management is very weak and the co-workers quite often do nothing. Some managers at the store are bullies and think they can just walk all over me. I do not enjoy it very much.
Pros
Easy, Flexible when it comes to days that you need off
Cons
Boring

Pros

Fast paced and extensive work oppurtunity for different personality types
LOGISTICS MANAGER/FILL CREW TEAM LEADER (Former Employee) –  Cochrane, ABJune 7, 2016
In a day an employee is faced with many challenges needed to be overcome starting with upset customers to messy aisles, freeing up carts for a desperate receiving crew, maintaining inventory counts, ensuring seasonal set-ups are on time, filling up hot selling areas, and the list goes on. Constantly testing the employees, these challenges have taught me a lot about managing different stress styles and resolving conflict when opposing personalities become heated towards each other. I've learnt a lot about satisfying the customer both through excellent customer service and having a store immaculately set up and maintained. Management is adverse from young and passionate new managers to more experienced and knowledgeable. The store huddles are a great communication from management to employees, and also good for uplifting moods and creating a positive environment. Co-workers are often supportive of one another and many do a good job at motivating and inspiring their team mates. Hardest part of the job is creating a work system that is not to exhausting on the workers, but sill maintains a solid workflow while keeping productivity high. The most enjoyable part of the job would be the sense of team, and watching the pieces fall together as everyone contributes their strengths from different positions within the store.
Pros
Fast paced, positive, many different positions available, free lunches provided by dealer
Cons
Some new employees tend to feel neglected, lots of personal conflicts between employees, stress on productivity causes employees often feel over worked
