Typical Retail
Part-time sales associate (Former Employee), 7599 King George Hwy, Surrey, BC V3W 5A8February 25, 2015
Pros: 10% items.
Cons: inconsistent hours, incompetent upper management, uncompromising bosses.
There was no compromise with the higher staff.
Co-workers were supportive when they could be but everyone wanted to be there as little as possible and most people stayed because they hadn't gotten a new job yet. In the year I worked there almost the entire staff had changed to new faces.
Management went so far as to question why you had a day as N/A on availablility and wouldn't let people trade shifts under any circumstances. It went so far as a schedule was put up for when everyone could take their half hour break. 15 minute breaks were highly frowned upon.
If the General Manager felt like it, they literally would make up an excuse out of nowhere and cut shifts down on staff, even if it was during busy season.
Whenever anyone talked to the owner about concerned they would dismiss it and say staff had to work harder to "Help [them] keep they lifestyle they were accustomed to."
This completely spoilted retail for me and I'll only consider going into retail again if I'm completly desperate.

Manager, Parts (Current Employee), Victoria B.C.February 24, 2015
Pros: flexibility with schedule, staff association functions (i.e. bowling, lunches)
Cons: upper management and office staff
Working for Canadian Tire is a great opportunity to learn and push through challenges that you might not find in other workplaces. Also having a close team relationship allows everyone to enjoy their job and feel accomplishment at the end of a shift. As any retail manager dealing with difficult customers is one of the more challenging things to do, but with the returns and warranty manuals provided by Canadian Tire it makes those decision a lot more clear cut, not only for the employee but also the customer. I feel working for Canadian Tire has taught me many valuable real world lessons and given me experience that I will use for the rest of my life.

Horrible Experience

Pros: flexible hours
Cons: everything about the place.
Co workers stabbed people in the back.
management did not care about anyone or anything. Very lazy and not productive. They also have very little communication skills. No manager or owner for that matter knows how to run a business it was just unbelievable

The management are very unattached with staff on the floor who happens to make the company their monies.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Barrie, ONFebruary 7, 2015
Pros: discount as well as getting first bids on items that are being tossed.
Cons: always being watched and negtive attitudes with management
After I left the management fired and laid off people that worked there for 4-5 years in every department. It seemed like they gave the store an uplift as well as the staff. I had stopped shopping there all together and still don't after all these years.

Working at Canadian tire
Housewares Associate (Former Employee), Grimsby,onFebruary 6, 2015
Pros: not open very late
Cons: long hours on weekends
The hours were good for me while in school, was able to balance work and homework as well as social life. Downfall was staff drama and long hours on weekends as well as hard to take time off! I worked in the housewares department so i would stock shelves for coffee machines, toasters, dishes, cutlery, garbage bags/cans, cleaning products, vacuums, totes, pet things and electronics. So i had a giant area of the store and most nights you are one person for the department that i was in which made it tough to juggle customers needs.

Manger (Former Employee), Carleton Place, ONFebruary 5, 2015
Pros: store account
Cons: long hours being the manger
Simple, get in and get out, just get the job done. Easiest job I ever had and LOVED IT. Left for matt leave and just never went back. What I learnt was Canadian Tire, weather it was the gas bar or the store are very good to their employees. I was the store level management, but the district mangers and most of the owners of the gas bars are all around great people. The hardest part of my job was writing the schedule for the other staff. The best part of my job was, I was being paid to talk to customers.
