Decent workplace
Sales Associate Hardware & Houseware (Former Employee), Richmond HillApril 5, 2015
An average day would be arriving at the store and stocking up on items that are not on the shelf. While restocking the store I would help customers in need with answering questions about a product or helping them find it.

Get the opportunity to meet and greet a variety of customers.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Owen Sound Ontario.March 30, 2015
I work with some awesome people who all try to work together as a positive team. Learned many computer skills, some good and some not so good.
The hardest part of the job is trying to keep car wash running and dealing with inside customers when you are the only employee working at that time.
Most enjoyable is when it all comes together and all your customers leave happy.

Fun, productive and helpful
Stock Filler (Former Employee), Selkirk, MBMarch 26, 2015
Pros: incentive lunches, thank you lunches and always smiles and appreciation.
I enjoyed working with my team at Canadian Tire, if only for a short time. Everyone was friendly, helpful and patient. I learned a few things about different products, for example, fans, humidifiers/purifiers. I became adept at using a RF machine.
I found that one is never too old to learn something new.

Ok work environment
Cashier & Full-serve Attendant (Current Employee), Odessa, OnMarch 26, 2015
Pros: Freedom, as long as the custom is served and they are happy.
Cons: Disorganization of the company its self and its help desk.
Canadian Tire is an alright place to work and I definitely have enjoyed working there for the last 3 years. I year full-time and the other 2 part-time while I was in school. The manager at my store is very flexible with my school schedule so that does help and I have enjoyed that.

There are some things about the company that I do not agree with but I am sure that they will change over time.

My co-workers are great people to work with and I enjoy it a lot I do not what I would do during the days if I did not have them.

I like to keep busy and make sure that the store is cleaned on a regular basis and that everything is in working order.

Happy workplace environment
Customer Service/ Cashier (Current Employee), Richmond Hill, ONMarch 23, 2015
I've learned a lot working as a customer service associate within the last couples years including patience, how to make a customer happy, how to multitask and how to keep myself organized. I've worked with some great people and it really makes a huge difference, personally I find it's better when everyone works as a team, it helps you get your job done faster and it makes it just a little more enjoyable. The hardest part of my job would have to be the language barrier. Occasionally a customer will come in and not know how to speak English and there would be nobody in the store who speaks their language. I find sometimes using actions or demonstrations is the best way to help them understand. The most enjoyable part would have to be finding ways to connect with customers or having customers come back just because they enjoyed your service.

Very long hours.
Cashier (Former Employee), Kanata, ONMarch 20, 2015
Pros: hour long lunches
Cons: very long hours
Being a cashier meant only leaving the floor when you were told.
Customer service skills and cash training were obtained easily.
Management was very critical and harsh, rude and not very helpful or guiding.
Hardest part of the job was to stay after a shift was over, because everyone needed to be told that they could leave (this was especially true for closing. If anyone was scheduled until 9pm, we would almost always leave at 9:45pm).
Enjoyable was the people worked with, however there was not many.
Working as a cashier is also enjoyable.
