Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON28 July 2017
It took me a bit to get super good at the job but I got the hang of it. The crew leads are all very helpful and the workers will give you tips on how to improve. only thing i didn't like was the talkman device you talk into while doing the voice picking because it sometimes doesn't understand you and hears voice commands even when you don't say anything
Pros
nice people
Cons
the talkman voice picking device

Hard labor! Gym membership an asset!
Warehouse Shipper and Receiver (Former Employee) –  Bedford, NS28 July 2017
Working in the warehouse is extremely demanding. You unload full trucks first thing in the morning and sometimes more than three a day, especially during the holiday events. It's insane! Sometimes you don't have enough room for the products to be stored in the warehouse and no room out on the floor to sell. So you have to create "illegal" space to house everything in and the products keep coming like this for at least 2 months before it begins to slow down.
If you like fast paced environments, tension, stress and sweat and you are in good shape then knock yourself out. In the end, you will be indestructable!
Pros
5 day workday guaranteed, plenty of work and 1 hour lunch breaks.
Cons
no overtime hours, extremely hot indoors, cheap raises.

9 mth review of canadian tire
Tire & Lube Technician (Current Employee) –  Oshawa, ON27 July 2017
As someone working in the automotive field and not yet a fully licensed mechanic. It is extremely exciting and educational to not only watch but help the fully licensed mechanics that have gained their 310S 310T and have been in the trade for many years. as each day I learn something new
Cons
No employee benfits

Its decent, basically your average retail store.
Housewares Clerk (Current Employee) –  1711 Kenaston Blvd. Winnipeg, MB27 July 2017
Pretty simple; stock shelves, answer customer's questions(they expect you to know everything), and in the evening you face to make the store look good. Management knows what they are doing, and my department manager is great.

Not a good company to work for.
Sports Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON27 July 2017
Management is very inconsiderate, constantly demanding and quite rude. The other employees there give a good environment to work in when the floor managers are not around. Otherwise the managers make the day a living nightmare.
Pros
Good people to work with
Cons
Horrible break system, disrespectful management, harsh hours.

Sales floor associate and cashier (Former Employee) –  2129 st.claire ave west27 July 2017
Management is horrible, they thrive on favouritism and people who suck up. I do not know if all Canadian Tires are like this, but this location is horrible. The only thing I enjoyed about working here was the very few awesome and friendly co-workers I had other then that its not worth it.
Pros
some friendly co-workers
Cons
long hours and hard work for bad pay

High expectations, extremely low pay
Warehouse (Former Employee) –  Bowmanville, ON23 July 2017
Some employees are overworked, not equal pay opportunities or raises. Managers at this location treat employees like they're pets. You are expected to do your job, plus theres (the parts they do not wish to do) as well as more. They find ways/loop holes to jerk around employees.
Pros
Only good for part time
Cons
Terrible Management, extremely low pay

Huge place with a lot of Automation
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON23 July 2017
The company is investing in a lot of automation to make sure that even the smallest product such as a golf ball reaches to its customer on right time.
The inventory they hold in a store cannot be seen in a day so imagine what happens in a Distribution Center where products are coming in and going out constantly.
Very exciting work place. Sometimes very hard but overall its energetic.
Pros
Store Discount, Free Safety Shoes, Health & Dental Benefits
Cons
Long Hours, Very Early Start

It was a fairly easy going work place, most of the managers were helpful and diligent. The scheduling and inter-departmental politics were somewhat tiresome.
