A typical day working for Canadian tired usually started off with a fresh cup of tea in the staff room; my co-workers and I would gather in the meeting room to meet with our head managers to listen to the days objectives and goals. While working at Canadian Tire I was trained to utilize a price gun, replace discount stickers and assist customers with retail orders. My main position was a Seasonal Decorator, from time to time I would stand behind the front desk to assist customers with any questions or concerns they might have. The managers were very kind and helpful, especially on my first day of work. They always interacted with the employees and offered assistance with difficult tasks, while working at Canadian Tire I felt respected, cared for and felt like my opinion mattered. The hardest part of my job was assisting not-so-nice customers, although I can handle myself in tough situations like those, its not always easy. The most enjoyable part of my job was interacting with my co-workers and the customers, I loved talking with everyone and helping others whenever I could, it was a real joy being employed at Canadian Tire.
Not enough time for lunch break
