Parts Associate (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 19 August 2017
Having Canadian Tire Stores owned individually is the worst idea for this company because your owner will determine your experience with the company and generally the owners are not very good because they are to cheap to pay their top employees to keep them around and for the most part treat there employees poorly
Enjoyed the youthful co-workers which turned into friends
bad pay, not enough employees, immature managers that aren't ready for the role
Customer Care Associate and Cashier (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 19 August 2017
It's not a problem if you're new really. You still aren't comfortable so you're unaware of the toxic environment. Customers expect you to be an expert on every thing and are rude when you don't know an answer. The management was quite petty at times.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Burlington, ON – 19 August 2017
Horrible rude and inefficient management with poor work conditions leading to many of my colleagues to leave due to bad backs or wrists. Very rude and tired staff no one likes working there even a little.
Bad Management, Body Strain, Poor Hours, Unfriendly Environment
Great place to start at and grow your career as well

Poor company management, due to the fact the area manager and my self did not see eye to eye. She had her plans, and that her plans seems to be right all the time, even though I was store manager, she know better than me about the area and culture of people.

The staff were nice and helpful
Typical day included stocking and helping customers with products as well as suggesting products. On top of that they give adequate training to their newcomers and try to help them settle into the company.

Every day is busy day, learned a lot about Canadian corporation etiquette and team work. Management are very helpful. Workplace culture is respectful and friendly.

I enjoy working at Canadian tire and I enjoy the people I work with . I get along with everyone. under certain circumstances I need to find something else. I am a cashier, I take all kinds of payments. Fishing licenses. I also know how to use the rf scan gun. I do price changes about 3 times a week and have also worked in the "as-is" program.
Store Owners drive the mechanics of the organization
Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 9 August 2017
There is a heavy dependency of satisfying Store Owner requirements at the risk of having a laissey-faire approach to internal organization needs. Store Owners drive the marketing wing of the organization.
