Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
its a job i suppose its better than working at amazon but not much opportunities in the warehouse.the managers are okay, some are miserable themselves. There is a lot of favoritism.

Pros

lots of overtime

Cons

feel like a slave

It was an ok place.

Lots of work. Great people to work with. You get in trouble if you get caught talking with other staff unless you're stocking at the same time. You can't talk to customers for to long. Some managers are great. Staff turn around was crazy. Some didn't stay for more than 2 days. The owner of the store was nice.

Pros

Some managers

Cons

Treated like a child.

Distribution Centres are challenging but reasonably good pay and benefits

This review is for the distribution centres in the GTA (I have worked at more than one location).You are expected to maintain a quick pace and accuracy, the work isn't for everyone. Management is a bit of a mixed bag, some are really good and supportive but some are young hotshots willing to step all over you to move up in the corporation.Pay and benefits are decent especially for some of the quality based roles which hold a grandfathered rate.Only 2 breaks provided for the 10h shifts but both are 30 minutes and paid for (5m of walking time is allotted as well).Formerly there were more rewards and incentives but they have been scaled down or removed completely over the years.

Pros

fully paid lunch/break, profit sharing, discount at all CT-owned retail stores

Cons

rotating 10h shifts (days rotate not work hours), cannot leave premises during break times, leaders are often selected based on who they are friends with

Thankless and no opportunity for advancement

Hard to advance or make anymore money from your starting wage.Almost zero opportunity for advancement, at all....Management does not seem to care one bit as long as profits keep flowing.They seem to value no mind, useless employees over hard working people who actually care about their job...

Pros

It's a job

Cons

It's a job of despertion. ...

Avantages sociaux intéressants, mais rémunération non compétitive et communication difficile

Selon le magasin, les tâches et responsabilités, ainsi que les rôles diffèrent grandement. J'ai travaillé au magasin de Beauport et mon expérience a été plutôt mitigé. Entrevue de sélection à 4 facteurs pour un poste d'administrateur en ressources humaines (entrevue téléphonique, entrevue virtuelle, entrevue physique avec le marchand, entrevue physique avec le directeur) très très lourd. J'ai adoré la dynamique d'équipe de cette succursale (environnement de travail intéressant). J'aimais bien mon poste, bien que celui-ci était trop général et les rôles et responsabilités à l'embauche étaient flous. La direction de Beauport (directeurs et marchand) est agréable, mais ne laisse pas de chance aux erreurs. Il faut donc s'assurer d'être 100 % versatile et ne rien oublié, car la moindre erreur peut être fatale (perte d'emploi). Or, il n'y a aucun département en administration (comptabilité, administration, ressources humaines, finance, etc.). Donc si vous prévoyez avoir des collègues de travail ou de l'aide, ce n'est point un endroit pour vous. Il faut être autonome, concentré et toujours à la tâche (on viendra valider régulièrement où vous êtes dans vos tâches). Par exemple, le directeur des RH doit faire d'autres volets de l'administration (comptabilité, finance, ressources humaines, etc.) et il n'aura aucune aide (pas de commis aux RH, pas de techniciens, rien). Les points les plus difficiles quant à l'emploi que j'ai occupé sont certainement la communication et le manque flagrant de formation. À mon arrivée, on ne m'a pas réellement formé (on m'a donné les outils pour effectuer - 

Pros

Régime de participation aux bénéfices, repas gratuits (occasionnel), club social, assurances collectives, flexibilité, etc.

Cons

Communication déficiente, aucune clarté dans les rôles et responsabilités, manque de formation flagrant, rémunération non compétitive, etc.

We work to live, we don’t live to work.

Very busy, fast paced work place. Great diversity, we are not just a team we are a family. Lots of stock arriving weekly. Wether you are looking for full time or part work we are the place for you because here at Canadian you are home.

Pros

Great schedule flexibility, lots of staff support from peers and managers.

Cons

Can’t think of any

Be prepared to carry a lot

You have to carry a lot of things. Be ready to do some hard labour and the location I worked at was very under staffed and dirty. People are nice and the culture is relaxed.

Productive and Fun place to work

Always had something to do there. Working as a team is a great way to build skills. Lots of products coming in and lots of opportunity to get to learn the products.

Heavy lifting but fun overall...

I have worked for 3 Canadian tire stores, there is one thing in common, always understaffed, which result to overworked for those who always come to work. Lesson learned never show the management all what you can do otherwise you will be exploited.

I was overqualified but un appreciated.

Unappreciated. Would never work for the Pickering location even as a last resort. Would not have anyone work there. Will find a way to get rid of you saying they need someone trust worthy. Nothing is good enough for them.

Decent

Wasn’t anything crazy but also nothing horrible either. A lot of stress as we were pretty understaffed. Aside from that is was nice to meet some people and learn a little abt customer service

About what you’d expect

Typical minimum wage retail job. Unsafe working conditions in the warehouse and products stocked up way too high. Expected to know every job. If anyone gives you a hard time you can refer to a manager which is good.

Pros

Easy, busy days go by fast

Cons

Long days, weekends, hot work in summer and unsafe working conditions

Poor management

There is poor management always short staffed management wouldn’t listen to workers overall a toxic work place and they don’t really care if another worker harassed you, management isn’t the greatest with customers either they would drive customers away and be blunt and disrespect not a good experience

Pros

Good wage

Cons

Management

It is an amazing place to work.

Everyone is very hands-on and welcoming, it's never a dull moment working there. during the summer it gets very busy and warm but it makes time pass by quickly, in the winter we call it the 'dead season' because it's not usually busy. It can get stressful at times but the staff is very considerate and always check and make sure we're okay. You're constantly moving around as well. From when I started to now I've actually dropped some weight which is a plus.

decent entry level work

it is what it is, nothing special but they give you a check and the work isn't overly hard. It's retail so a lot of weekend work but that's to be expected and the pay isn't very high but that's also to be expected.

Great starter job

Lots of variety to learn new things and great for students. They are very flexible with their shifts just incase an emergency pops up. All around decent for the work.

Productive and always something to do

Very good place for a first job or while still on high school. Accommodating for students when needing time off, but not so much for taking vacation days or weekends off. Overall a good, formal place for people who are looking to make some cash on the side.

Fun to work at

Great and fun place to work at. All employees and coworkers are amazing. Learned a lot about cars. Unless you make it into management, the salary is low.
