Cashier Lead/Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Burlington, ONMarch 17, 2015
Often I work customer service, helping customers with their returns or other inquiries. Other days I work on the floor merchandising aisles based on a planogram that has been created by head office. I am always learning new skills in this job which keeps the job interesting.

Fun place to work met great people
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Upper James St HamiltonMarch 16, 2015
Pros: discounts on merchandise
Typical day at work would include doing the job required helping other when needed. What I learned was how to use different types of equipment such as pump truck hand price scanner. Co-workers were amazing got along with them and communicated with them. The hardest part of the job was probably trying to get there on time. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting great people everyday.

Loved the job! Miss it dearly
Cashier/Sales Associate/Customer Service (Former Employee), St. Catharines, ONMarch 14, 2015
Management was very good and responsible. My coworkers were fantastic. My managers and co workers were so close and dear to me like a family, it was an amazing experience, and I was so sad to leave CTC. I worked long hours which is what I wanted, as well as I got to be trained to work many different positions throughout the store. There was never a dull moment.

Experience Gained
Parts Associate (Former Employee), Toronto, ONMarch 11, 2015
Canadian Tire gave me more experience to life/work history. The automotive section helped me learn a few this about the Ins and outs of cars small cool lessons here and there.
Everyday my customer services were put into play, helped me perfect an art form that should always be perfected.
The management gave me a totally new experience dealing with their personalities which i felt were more difficult than customers. I felt as though their everyday life stress exposed in their job, so i had to make the assessment to keep my composure intact. Understanding that some peoples minds work certain ways and some people just have bad days. Understanding that I easily complied, because its a virtue that you can't escape.
The most enjoyable part of my job was my coworker, from hear their experiences, to the small hand they lent to me in situations where i needed them. Helped make my day and my job easier on a daily basis.

PROMOTIONS ASSOCIATE (Current Employee), Chilliwack, BCMarch 3, 2015
If you like to work - actually work - for a living, there is always something to do from the tedious to the more challenging aspects of retail work. Drawback are lousy customers and some poor management skills.

Senior Associate Business Manager (Former Employee), Oakville, OntarioMarch 1, 2015
Pros: relaxed work environment
Cons: long commute from ajax to oakville each day
My time with Canadian Tire was limited however my time with the company was enjoyable.

I had joined the newly launched Home Services division of the company from Sears Canada where I had a number of years of previous experience. It was great to be part of the team responsible for launching a new line of business for the company.

Typical Retail
Part-time sales associate (Former Employee), 7599 King George Hwy, Surrey, BC V3W 5A8February 25, 2015
Pros: 10% items.
Cons: inconsistent hours, incompetent upper management, uncompromising bosses.
There was no compromise with the higher staff.
Co-workers were supportive when they could be but everyone wanted to be there as little as possible and most people stayed because they hadn't gotten a new job yet. In the year I worked there almost the entire staff had changed to new faces.
Management went so far as to question why you had a day as N/A on availablility and wouldn't let people trade shifts under any circumstances. It went so far as a schedule was put up for when everyone could take their half hour break. 15 minute breaks were highly frowned upon.
If the General Manager felt like it, they literally would make up an excuse out of nowhere and cut shifts down on staff, even if it was during busy season.
Whenever anyone talked to the owner about concerned they would dismiss it and say staff had to work harder to "Help [them] keep they lifestyle they were accustomed to."
This completely spoilted retail for me and I'll only consider going into retail again if I'm completly desperate.

Basic hardware store retail environment
Manager, Parts (Current Employee), Victoria B.C.February 24, 2015
Pros: flexibility with schedule, staff association functions (i.e. bowling, lunches)
Cons: upper management and office staff
Working for Canadian Tire is a great opportunity to learn and push through challenges that you might not find in other workplaces. Also having a close team relationship allows everyone to enjoy their job and feel accomplishment at the end of a shift. As any retail manager dealing with difficult customers is one of the more challenging things to do, but with the returns and warranty manuals provided by Canadian Tire it makes those decision a lot more clear cut, not only for the employee but also the customer. I feel working for Canadian Tire has taught me many valuable real world lessons and given me experience that I will use for the rest of my life.
