Productive worplace with wonderful employees as well as employers! Was a pleasure working there.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Espanola, ON – 13 November 2016
The typical day for me at Canadian Tire would include being behind the courtesy desk handling customer transactions as well as returns, exchanges, and customer complaints. I learned how to correctly return merchandise and check each item for wear and cleanliness, learned how to process a transaction on the point of sale systems, as well as how to greet customers and helping them anyway possible. My management and co-workers were wonderful and all one big family, we had a great support system for any complaints, and if any problems had come up the management was quick to find a solution. The hardest part of the job was when we couldn't find a solution to helping a customer and finding them what they needed, or if a customer has become irritable and misunderstanding of our limits in the store. When we would have any problems, offering them to talk to a manager usually helped the situation if I could not calm them down myself. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with all of the amazing co-workers, and meeting new people everyday, and seeing people smile from something I have done to help with anything I could.
Staff lunch days, amazing co-workers
Not much time off work for personal life.
