Parts Manager (Former Employee), Brandon, MBSeptember 8, 2014
Pros: co workers and customers
Cons: weird hours and communication
Not a bad word to say. Training was a issue though. Myself the schedule was okay but when full time people were given split shifts it made me think. When they stopped training me it made me think.

I was a retail animal. Loved the culture at the Tire but I need to keep learning. A day in the front lines in retail is a real teacher. Yet after many years – more... it is same old. When as a manager I found a real keeper for my department they took him/her away to another area.

The trainer( me) was no longer being trained. Good staff were taken away. Great for the company less so for us left. – less

Hardware Paint and Tools
Customer Service/Cashier/Self (Former Employee), London, ONSeptember 3, 2014
Opening is purging the paint machine, check for work notes, change garbage's if not done from previous night. Make sure paint machine is ready to run. Depending on the day, Aisle maintenance, job list to be done. Price changes, and customer service for every customer.

I learned alot about different paints, when to and not to paint. About staining decks, – more... etc.

Most enjoyable part was dealing with the customers, helping them... giving ideas or possibly turning their negative into a positive shopping experience. I enjoy working with the public. – less

Carrying out small tasks instructed by managers and learning new skills in the process
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Brampton, ONSeptember 2, 2014
I needed to carry small tasks dealing with products on a daily bases. I have learned alot of important things such as some very important marketing skills which are use to attract costomers. the management was very stable and the managers were very well informed of the workplace. Furthermore, Managers all had great communication, leading and problem – more... solving skills. My co-workers were very well understanding and had possitive attitude. The hardest part of the job was sometimes reporting a concern to the managers because they would always be busy with very important tasks. The most enjoyable part of the job was providing a costomer survice and being able to help. – less

Canadian tire
Cashier and Sales Associate (Former Employee), Brampton, ONAugust 22, 2014
At first I worked as a cashier, I have learned the basic responsibilities for being a cashier. After months I got changed to a department on the floor, Promotions. I preferred this position because I was able to . move around and interact with customers, instead of standing in one spot for most of the day. Working in promotions allowed me to develop – more... work independently as well as in groups. As well as developing a sense of self discipline because with promotions my boss, he did not always tell me what needed to be done. I'd have to say I enjoyed working with old management before the switch to the new owner of the Canadian tire I was employed at, due the fact that I was able to actually get work done, work at my own pace and receive decent hours. What I dislike with the new management are the changes to promotions and the inconsistency with the management. Overall I enjoyed working with my co-workers, but at the same time i want to expand my work experience to jobs that could help me in my future career. – less

Fun Work place But Terrible Management
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABAugust 16, 2014
Pros: fun work palce, good hourly pay for retail.
Cons: terrible management, unorganized warehouse and broken equipment.
A great Starting place for Retail, fun working environment. Learned to deal with Nasty customers better since there were always some rude Customers, Learned only a little not much, already knew most of it.
Terrible Management, received little to no training, Managers don't help when you need it, even if you call them a hundred times on the radio, only – more... some times they come to your aid, they are either standing around at the back warehouse talking or upstairs in their office.
Terrible Warehouse, Little organization and really messy. One of the hardest part of the job was going to the back to look for any item, it takes most of your time to even find the right place.
Broken/No equipments, makes job Harder. – less
