Tire Installer (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 17 December 2018
The reason I was let go from Canadian Tire was basically because I didn't know what I was doing. But, in my defense my manager in the warehouse did not train me well enough for me to know what I was doing on my own. I asked numerous times what I should be doing but received little to no answers.
Retail Sales Supervisor (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 16 December 2018
I really like retail industry because I love to serve customer. The work place culture where I was working was very friendly. There is nothing like any typical day or hard part of the job in retails. What I think is If we love our work then nothing is typical or hard at work. Sometimes it becomes very busy at work that some people don't like but I really like the busy atmosphere because time goes very fast. So, the busy atmosphere at work is good for us as well as also profitable for the business. The most enjoyable part of the job where I was working is I passed my each day at work without having any customer complaint.
Warehouse Worker/Forklift Driver (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 14 December 2018
I worked the night shift at the very old warehouse in Brampton prior to the huge place it is now. I enjoyed working there as you worked within a team but had a lot of independence to complete the tasks required.
Retail Associate (Current Employee) – Lakeshore, ON – 13 December 2018
little to no chance at moving up in the company and the benefits are not that good even though they mention them alot. best part are the people is work with. no yearly evaluation because they dont want to give raises
Nothing special, managers gave little training, not organized.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 11 December 2018
In my personal experience the store i worked at in general seemed to be flustered. after working 3 months i was fired with no explanation and no warning. i even came in my full uniform. There was an issue with making their staff feel like they were doing a good job and compliments were very rare. My cheques also came in weeks late. Very unorganized store.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Fredericton, NB – 10 December 2018
There was no training process, I was simply sent out to work on my first day. I was ridiculed for asking questions to management. Other employees were not friendly or helpful. Store and warehouse are very disorganized, making it sometimes impossible to find something for a customer even when there is plenty of that item in stock. Unreliable computer system: stock marked in system does not always reflect the real amount in the store. Owner of this particular franchise is condescending and disconnected from his employees.
Easy to take time off
New schedule is only posted in store, poorly managed.
Excellent all encompassing knowledge of how a store functions
Customer Relationship Associate (Former Employee) – North York, ON – 10 December 2018
Even though I was there for the Summer months, I walked away feeling that I was being groomed to one day run a store as a manager. The trainers I encountered were all excellent and I was amazed by how much specialized knowledge I acquired in a very short time.
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Ottawa South, ON – 9 December 2018
I worked at two different locations and both locations were awful. This one was understaffed and management was lazy and rude. 90% of the time I worked there my pay was incorrect. I had been promised a management position and a raise within a few months, never got either of them. instead of promoting me, they gave me the duties of a manager.
