Associate & Management (Former Employee), Toronto, OntarioNovember 21, 2014
An enjoyable place to work overall. Consisted of receiving large shipments, warehouse organization and maintenance, retail floor organization and maintenance, product merchandising, logistical analysis, worker training and supervision, customer care and much more. A demanding setting, but generally good co-workers/management. Some benefits/profit sharing – more... for full timers, but no real incentive program for the majority of staff. – less

Good for anyone who only wants minimal part time and minimum wage.
Supervisor/sales clerk (Former Employee), Greenwood, NSNovember 21, 2014
Pros: paid every other week.
Cons: not enough hours to support an individual on the pay received, and no set schedule so having a second job is very difficult.
Be at work 15 minuets before your shift, (seemed to only apply to a few.) Dressed in company compliant uniform, one shirt given out free of charge then the rest have to be paid for except for promotional tee-shirts. No set work schedule, every week is different and schedule was never up before Thursday of the week preceding. Constantly told Customer – more... service is #1 but if more than 3 minuets is spent with a customer you got rep-remanded. Enjoyed working with the staff that was there and enjoyed helping the customers even most of the cranky ones(could usually make them smile) A lot was expected for a minimum wage job as you have to do on-line study courses and at the store I was in ,on your own time with no compensation and no wage increase incentive for completion of a block. They have benefits for those that qualify, paid out of your earnings like most companies, also profit sharing again only if you qualify. Wage difference between regular employees and a supervisor was 30 cents per hour in the store I worked in and quite a bit more was expected from the supervisor. The people who owned the franchise previously to the folks who have it now were very good to work for and gave bonuses for jobs well done and took part in supporting the community not so now. I guess the quality of working at a place such as this depends directly on the quality of the owner, JMHO.

I hope this helps. – less

Creative courses to learn
Customer service - (Former Employee), Calgary, ABNovember 19, 2014
Courses are informative and helpful in helping customers get the right products. Co-workers are helpful in times of need. Managers are always around in difficult times and customers. Parts and Hardware were both challenging and rewrding.

Great environment overall although management needs to recognize staff accomplishments.
Customer Service/ Sales Associate (Former Employee), Toronto, OntNovember 19, 2014
Pros: staff was easy to get along with, which made it an enjoyable environment.
Cons: it didn't feel as though accomplishments were acknowledged.
A typical day at work requires me to deal with all aspects of customer behaviour. for an example to deal with a difficult customer requires patience and understanding. I've learned to deal with every situation professionally by being polite and understanding. If all else fails talk to a supervisor therefore you can gain knowledge as to how to handle – more... the situation. Management should be supportive and acknowledge your mistakes. you must be able to interact with co-workers because communication is the key to success. The hardest part of the job is dealing with stress within the workplace. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that you served the customer as you would like to be served. A return customer is a happy customer. – less

Great place to work with excellent benefits.
Shipping (Former Employee), Brampton, ONNovember 17, 2014
Pros: great benefits and pay.
Cons: weekend shift for over six years.
A typical day would begin with a pre-shift meeting. We would be designated our doors for the night and would be given the tools to do the job correctly and safely. As required by the schedule, we would be asked to help other teams as required. 10 hr shifts went by fast,especially with a great bunch of people to help.

Work Procedure
Business Analyst (Former Employee), Mississauga, ONNovember 15, 2014
Everyday when you come to work you are not expected to bring anything with you. Even your cell phone is to be submitted at security desk and to be picked up at the end of the day work. There was a close monitoring in order to ensure that none of the company's property was illegally with you,

Great working hours
Promotional Team (Former Employee), Barrie, ONNovember 10, 2014
Pros: monthly lunches
Cons: low hourly wages
Started working at 6:00 am and started to fill my bases before the store opened as they 195 bases needed to be built and maintained at 52 inches high with a 95% fullness. I learned to be strategic in time management to complete this task. Management was always there watching to make sure things were being accomplished. Co-workers were excellent and – more... worked well as a team. The most difficult part of the job was keeping up with the bases on busy times as help was difficult to find. The most enjoyable part was customer service. – less

An alright experience but seriously lack concrete leadership
Cashier (Former Employee), Stouffville, ONNovember 8, 2014
Pros: private employee lunchroom
Cons: little to no community feel.
A typical day at work consisted of being very limited in term of what you are allowed to do as a cashier and being confined to a small square area until break. As a garden center employee it consisted of many hours of lifting and relocating plants and trees, followed by watering them. Co workers were all friendly and easy to get along with, however – more... management was lackluster and often seemed confused. The hardest part of the job was when the managers contradicted each other and nothing got done. The best part was being allowed to work outside in the garden center – less

Have a Store meeting every morning before the store opens. Start my price changes, stocking shelves, organizing the cashiers stations. I learned not only to speak to people in person but also over the phone. The management was very organized, everyone was on the same page with walkie talkies.My co-workers were respectable to other employees and also – more... to the customers. There were no hard parts in my job. I handled every situation according to procedure and i was very organized and clear headed. The most enjoyable part of my job was seeing the customers come in the store angry and leaving happy. – less

An enjoyable workplace!
Canadian Tire Worker (Former Employee), St. Marys, ONNovember 3, 2014
Typical work day was interesting as I got to socialize with different people everyday. I enjoyed learning new things and making the store look and feel better. What I have learned from working here was mixing paint, inventory, stocking shelves and cash/ customer service. The hardest part of the job was doing returns as most customers would get angry – more... if they could not return the item. The most enjoyable part of my job was helping customers and also keeping the store clean and stocked. – less
