Convenient at this time
Automotive Service Technician (Current Employee), TrentonMay 3, 2014
Does not offer a consistent pay rate. Does not offer benefits or health plan that is affordable. Lack of promotions or recognition for jobs well done. Management is lacking.

Fun time at Canadian Tire!
Cashier (Former Employee), Guelph, ONApril 21, 2014
Pros: long lunches and good co-workers
Cons: no cons.
A typical day at work would be getting to work 15 minutes early and getting my self ready like going to the bathroom, wash hands etc. and then do what I have to do during the work time and then get things done close or after I am done work and then go home. What I learned is do your best and make work fun. Management is awesome. Three to four managers – more... and always there when you needed them. My co-workers always made my day and fun during the busy or slow day and got along with them always and still friend with them. The hardest part of the job was counting the money after my shift was over because there was so much money after the end of the day.My most enjoyable part of the job was co-workers, customers and the managers who help us. – less

Productive and Fun Work Place
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Strathmore, ABApril 14, 2014
Pros: social events and special lunches for birthdays
Cons: little staff in each department
A typical day at work would consist of stocking product, helping customers both those in the store and those on the phone. We would have to do stock adjustments for product we could not find in order to get new stuff ordered so customers could buy the product. Every week on Thursdays we would get sale labels for the products that were going to be on – more... sale for the next week, so we would take down the old sale labels and put up the new ones.

What i learned about was customer service and merchandising because I worked in the sporting good department and would have to do seasonal change over, from winter to summer sports. I learned how rewarding delivering customer service can be to people and how important it is in increasing sales and also in loss prevention.

The management was helpful to some extent in the training process and task management duties and checking on the staff.
My co-workers on the other hand were helpful and hardworking. If anyone needed help with something we were all willing to pitch in and help one another.

The hardest part was probably merchandising because if something got discontinued you would have to re-organize the other product to take up the now empty space.

Most enjoyable part was helping people and seeing them appreciate the hard work you're doing for them. – less
