Commis de plancher (Former Employee) – Atholville, NB – 21 May 2017
Canadian Tire is one of the most friendliest places to work -The staff is incredible -There's always something to do to keep you busy and on your feet -The customers are great -The hours are sufficient -The management team is one of the bests that I ever had
Work at the DDO store is not great they do not train you at all. My first day there they put me on cash right away with no training I had to figure out how everything worked on my own. Also went ever something goes wrong they either fire you right away or give you a one week suspension even if it's not your fault.
it was a very fun and learning experience for me.i enjoyed my time working there even just for a period of time

fun environment. everyone's helpful very well managed. you will learn evrything from when the company started as in everything.the management are very helpful and understanding.different types of people you will learn their customs and traditions until you really get to know them. the hardest part for me is when i just started im not familiar where to place the products but you;ll get used to it and begin to enjoy what you are doing. the most enjoyable part of the job is getting to know more people and having friendly co workers.
you have to finish unpacking the products and stay until you finish

Friendly co-workers, great atmosphere, you're constantly on the go, the most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with new customers. You learn quickly how to maintain good interpersonal relationships and become more outgoing.
The overall direction/strategy of the company not followed by all of management which causes confusion amougst employees
Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 17 May 2017
It was a great place to work but recent senior management hires has changed that to "okay" place to work. Jobs are not posted and awarded to to individuals without interviews and bypassing internal resources.
Inconsistent scheduling, lack of training for my hired position
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 17 May 2017
Was hired to do customer service, yet months into my position I still was not trained to do customer service desk work, and was expected to share the same shifts and responsibilities as a cashier, filling in for high school kids and the like.
Good coworkers, customers were very difficult, management didn't seem to be communicative at all.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Vancouver Canada – 15 May 2017
I would stock shelves, help customers, and work with great employees. The best part of the job was the friends I made. On really busy days for example during Christmas it would be very very busy and sometimes it would be hard to help all the customers but I did the best I could to make sure they got the best customer service. Management was very good. Some managers didn't communicate with other managers and that would be confusing at times. The work was somewhat fun and it was nice to see happy customers walk out the store with what they came to purchase in the first place
Free lunch once a month and donuts every week
Working overtime and dealing with disgruntled customers
Very fast paced enviroment and not enought employees
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Albion, ON – 15 May 2017
this place is a good place to start if you are looking for a job with experience because it has many different departments, I would help people and work different departments which was a good learning experience .
