Canadian Tire is a great place to work. Customer service oriented store.
Retail Floor Clerk (Current Employee), Yellowknife, NTJuly 15, 2015
Pros: Profit sharing (some stores), scholarships (Canadian Tire University)

As a Retail Floor Clerk, you have to deal with customers everyday. Making sure that you give them what they need and if not suggest alternatives.Lack of training specially to the department that I am working today which is Automotive Parts.

Great staff and customers
Seasonal Manager (Former Employee), Newmarket, ONJuly 14, 2015
Pros: staff
Cons: Upper management needs to learn how to manage people not whip them.
Lack of hours for staff members meant managers had to take up the slack making for some very long days and not enough time to cover all the customers.

HORRIBLE IF NEWLY HIRED
WAREHOUSE (Former Employee), WINDSOR ONJuly 9, 2015
Pros: ZERO
Cons: UNPAID 15 MINUTE BREAKS, HOT, DIRTY, LOW PAY, LOTS OF WORK
NO BREAKS WHAT-SO-EVER IF YOU WORK 5 HOURS STRAIGHT.

-no water fountain for anyone
-hot, dirty, no AC or fans, in backroom
-inventory is scattered in unorganized shelving locations

-stock is jammed everywhere-so if a box of chips came in with an expiration date of say 90 days--odds are it will never reach the sales floor.

-you must receive truck BY HAND and every product is physically touched-you – more... are on receiving for 5-6 hours straight.

-scanners are confusing, often malfunction.

-you have to multi-task big time-gather all the carts, receive the truck, move skids, scan and put all product away, do carry outs, find product for customers and set it out in back room, place HEAVY items away by yourself up a ladder, ALL AT THE SAME TIME.

-YOU MUST carry a pen, marker, knife, scanning gun, scan card, pad of paper, work phone, keys, steel toed shoes, at ALL TIMES.

all this for slightly above minimum wage.

GOOD LUCK ! – less

Great People, easy going and not to difficult a job
sales associate in the tools department (Current Employee), olds albertaJuly 9, 2015
Pros: many hours
Cons: minimum wage and unchallenging/repatative work
My experience at Canadian Tire was adequate. I learned new skills and knowledge of businesses and products. I now know much about the retail industry and how it functions. All of my co-workers were likable and generally easy going including the managers. A typical day at work at Canadian Tire includes stocking shelves, creating product lists that are designed to help managers decide what products to order next and which ones to write off as missing. Helping customers that require assistance finding a product is a large part of the job. A lot of memorization skills are needed if someone wishes to be proficient at the job quickly.

not a great experience
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee), New Glasgow, NSJuly 7, 2015
Pros: good coworkers
Cons: the owners were hard to deal with
This was one of the worst places I have ever worked, the owners were very degrading and like to show others how high up on the food chain they were by screaming and treating staff badly in front of costumers and coworkers, there were a lot of managers that were great and tried to help the staff any way they can,

Great place to work and the other staff was outstanding
manager (Current Employee), Cranbrook, BCJuly 6, 2015
Pros: Great staff, work one night a week still as closing manager
Cons: Couldnt have any more advancement opportunities
Yet again Canadian Tire was a great place to work, enjoy people and have great intrapersonal and sales skills. Problem was I got to assistant manager after 8.5 years but couldn't progress anymore. Was a manager at 17 years old and worked 6.5 years as one gaining experience.

Mundane, Customers usually rude and hostile.
Parts desk, Tools/hardware (Former Employee), Winnipeg, MbJuly 1, 2015
Pros: 40 hours a week
Cons: low wage barely increases, bad customers
The job is exactly the same day to day. Customers are terrible mainly hostile and uncooprative when you attempt to help them. Good people do come in regularly but its usualy 50/50. The managers I had where nice, good to get along with and such. Except for one who like to bully employees.Dont expect much of a raise; 10 to 20 cents max.

Team member (Former Employee), Dundas, ONJune 30, 2015
Several interactions with customers on a regular basis. Due to the difference in age creating a close relationship with co-workers became a more difficult task. Although, a very friendly environment and management was very welcoming.
