Cashier (Current Employee) – Niagara Falls, ON – March 19, 2014
a typical day at work would be to sign in get my cash drawer go sign on to a cash register and being serving the customers in any way possible. If it was not busy at the front of the store I would close my cash and go assist another department that was in need of the extra help. I would mainly just go and face in the departments or bring out stock.
you gain a lot of retail experience
scheduled hours are not always distributed equallly
Hardware Associate (Former Employee) – Whitby, ON – August 30, 2016
A typical day was usually restocking items on shelves and helping customers. Some customers had a very poor attitude while others made the job more enjoyable. However the coworkers there were always around to give each other boosts of encouragement when things looked down or were there when help was needed.
Fun place to work, positive environment, amazing staff, and a fun job to learn!
Firearm sales (Former Employee) – Penticton, BC – August 27, 2016
I absolutely loved my job. Spent two years at Canadian Tire in Penticton and loved going to work every day. Made so many wonderful work friends/family and my bosses were the best. There was so much compassion. My favourite part about being there for so long was getting regular customers, and getting to know them personally and helping them with sales every time they came in. I honestly can't say enough nice things about that place. If you get the chance to work there, I promise you will love it!!
Staff parties, free lunches sometimes, amazing staff, work family, awesome boss/manager, some amazing customers.

Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – August 25, 2016
All of the managers at the Store I worked at were unproffessional and expected too much of their employees. They get annoyed when you ask questions about a task and either gossip about you behind your back or simply yell in your face if you muck something up. This lead to many of the employees coming and leaving in a bad mood and also creating a mediocre customer experience because of this. If you get hired at Canadian Tire, expect to hate your job after the first month.
Customer Service Manager (Current Employee) – Penticton, BC – August 25, 2016
A typical day at work is always a fun and an enjoyable experience. I can honestly say I do not remember having a bad day . I love the people I work with. We are a great group of employees there is aproximatly at any given time 70 to 80 employees and I get along with all. The hardest part is probably the irate customers . But that doesn't happen all the time . I just do my best and try to put my self in their shoes and their feelings . Things usually work out .
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – August 24, 2016
Canadian Tire was great for a temporary job or being in school. Helping customers find desired products should be the main focus but ensuring shelves were stocked and neat is more the main responsibility. I learned the whole store very quickly although you are only really assigned to one department. You can see that when you are shopping in the store because most staff won't be able to help you if the item you are looking for is not in their department.
Automotive Manager (Current Employee) – Windsor, ON – August 24, 2016
The day to day at Canadian Tire is pretty straightforward: Help the customer and take care of the retail floor. As a manager the job is not hard but leaves a lot to be desired in terms of advancement. I firmly believe this has a lot to do with the fact that each store is individually owned. This being the case, there really is no program set in place to help employees advance their career.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Greater Napanee, ON – August 24, 2016
Working for Canadian Tire was a great experience, dealing with customers every day is something I thoroughly enjoyed. I improved my customer service skills on my own and with the help of my co workers who had been there longer than I had. Working there was a fantastic learning experience for myself.
Cart Attendant (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – August 23, 2016
Canadian Tire was a great place to get situated in work. The warehouse was clean and very professional. Every employee had strived for success in their own way. I could never say anything bad about an employer, but to find another spot like this would be great.
Warehouse Supervisor (Former Employee) – Alliston, ON – August 22, 2016
Unloaded trucks in the morning and separated the products for staging on the store floor. Quarantining seasonal products for future sales or holidays. Learned how to use a RF gun for locating/unlocating items in the warehouse and floor using a Fast Find program. Trained to operate forklift which was used to transport skids of products into trucks or to the garden centre. Prepared schedules for a team of 9 under my supervision in the warehouse. Hardest part of the job was some excessive handling of large products (gazebos, treadmills, garden sheds) that were not placed on skids during shipping.
