Automotive Parts Associate (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 27 February 2018
When things were working good. Everything was good. Positive atmosphere, and mostly great employees and management. Dealt with a large share of harassment and unfair treatment, which management failed to acknowlege or deal with.
Part-Time Mechanic (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 26 February 2018
I felt overworked and underappreciated while working at Canadian Tire. My shifts were regularly 12+ hours long, with only one half hour break. I was payed minimum wage. I had very little trust in my employers and the management there.

if your a student just looking for some extra cash, you'll be fine. They will work you, but as long as you can take the work load, you'll go home satisfied. Be prepared to get out of your comfort zone as they may have you moving around in terms of departments, lifting products up ladders that go nearly as high as the ceiling, getting your hands dirty(soil, salt, grease, cleaning chemicals) and may find yourself outside in the cold with a t-shirt(your uniform). If you cant keep up or fall behind too often, they'll pick up quickly and cut your hours depending on how bad you are. But if your good with a little dirt, lifting, have a flexible schedule and can at least tolerate disrespectful customers, your golden
Cashier (Former Employee) – Caledonia, ON – 24 February 2018
Ultimately not the worst place to work, but not somewhere I would want to be for a long time. Provided me with decent training and good first job experience for future retail positions. Management was terrible, coworkers were, again, decent.
Warehouse/Receiving Worker (Former Employee) – Grimsby, ON – 23 February 2018
Overall had a good experience working at Canadian Tire. The hours were plentiful, despite how early they could start. There were some great managers, but other ones who were... not so great. Good place to work overall, ideally as a summer job.
Hardware Associate (Former Employee) – Thunder Bay, ON – 22 February 2018
A typical day mostly consisted of pushing carts, cutting keys, and opening locked up cabinets. I learned basically nothing on the job, other than learning which isles had which products. Owner did nothing but stand around and watch us work hard.
The work place is very well looked after and the people you work with are so nice and easy to get along with from what I’ve experienced. When working there when it comes to the breaks and lunchtimes it’s all timed and coordinated very well so while someone’s on lunch or a break while the other(s) is still out working on the floor and then when you switch off.
The employees and managers all get along so well it’s mice to see, the brakes and lunchtimes are handled very well, and there’s always something that can be done
You only get payed so much and it’s hard to get a raise there.
From school I would go straight to co-op ready to learn. I would get there then go to the auto section of the store because I worked with the auto mechanics. I would learn how to change oil, change tires propeller and to clean the auto shop propeller. The hardest part about the job is the you are always on the move and it really puts you to work. The part I like the most about the job was that I got to see a lot of different cars.
