Good place to work, paycheck is always the best part of a job.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Grand Falls-Windsor, NL – 22 February 2019
It was mostly restocking shelves finding things for customers and unpacking freight. Managers were nice and helped when there was trouble, Most coworkers were friendly. The hardest part was learning where everything is. The most enjoyable part was the paycheck.

As a first job, Canadian Tire was a great work experience. The managers were kind and resourceful, and were a big part in my familiarizing myself with the job. My coworkers were friendly and supportive always and the most enjoyable time at work was easily working alongside, productively and efficiently, my coworkers.
Great staff, good customer service experiences.
Hours can feel long when store is empty, mundane and routine work tasks at times.
Owners are very involved in the day to day business
Customer Service/Cashier (Former Employee) – Penticton, BC – 21 February 2019
I found it really nice that the owners would know your name, know which department you are in. The morning huddles were great, because your department could tell the other departments what their new product was, if there were any issues, how our store was doing compared to all the other Canadian Tires. The owners made you feel valued part of the team. Each department would help out each other, if need be. It was a great atmosphere here.

in the automotive service side of the store needs to have better v i r layout on the costar program we can't simply check the complete box unless everything including the "n/a" knowing the cars we bring in are going out good and when getting cars coming in with nothing to report to customer about their vehicle.
hours are great, profit share program is solid, great people
poor wages for the excessive amount of work in the service department
Canadian Tire was a fun company to work for usually enjoyed coming into working my shifts especially when id be the one in charge of the garden center cause it meant spending most of your day in the sun and helping customers.

I worked fifteen years overall for this Canadian Tire. It was a smaller shop than most of there stores are now.I did get my start in the trade at this store but the income was not steady from pay period to pay period.This was due mostly to the flat rate system the store had in place.

flexible hours, willing to help get you to the position you want in the company
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 13 February 2019
My Experience in working in the pump station for Canadian Tire was amazing for the coworkers who were absolutely caring and I also had a wonderful experience serving for the customers. Hardest part was to give out credit cards having 2 minutes time to spare from the customer. Enjoyable part was the experience and the confidence I ave received within me.
Unorganized and unoptimized supply chain and transportation department
Business Analyst Intern (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 13 February 2019
Canadian Tire is a great company, however, their transportation department specifically is not doing well. By investing into their transportation department they could easily see substantial cost savings and thus return on their investment very fast.
Retail Associate (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 13 February 2019
Canadian Tire is a standard retail job. Your bosses look down on you as your store owner makes eight times your salary. Being part time, you are as expendable as can be, and good luck advancing in the job as all the managers and supervisors are as tight as the very crazy glue you sell.
Experience with retail products.
Random hours, hard long days, rude customers, little respect from management
