Very stressful

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Not much education goes into training new employees unless you take online courses. Minimum pay and exhaustive hours. Not a safe work environment. Safety standards not enforced.

Pros

It is a job

Cons

Lack of leadership
Was this review helpful?

Don't work here. (period)

I'll make it easy for you...Do not work here. Management doesn't care about employee health or safety. A core group works slow and new employees get worked hard then when you stop they begin to harass you until you want to quit. Unprofessional and highly toxic work environment. I like Canadian Tire as a customer, but to work there it trash.

Pros

2 paid breaks ($5 per break not life changing)

Cons

Lack of Health and Safety protocols

Terrible management

The management is extremely terrible, it’s a bunch of college kids who have favourites and have their own little clique. It’s kind of like a high school and you don’t advance in the company. If you surpass 3 sick days you get fired

Pros

Easy job

Cons

Bad management
Was this review helpful?

Hated every single day.

Hated working there, the job itself was good if management wasn't so bad, I felt manipulated anytime I made a mistake and made to feel stupid. Some of the managers are so bad, that they are heavily understaffed because nobody wants to work in that managers department. Co workers are allowed to be horrible to each other with no recourse. "OH that's just how they are" is the most likely response you'll get. So honestly just avoid the place and you'll be happy.

Pros

Benefits

Cons

Toxic work environment

Awful Place to Work

Every couple weeks they make changes to the rules that make no sense, fire you for asking questions, they make you stay past your scheduled time. They treat the employees like trash.

Pros

10% store discount

Cons

almost everything else

Alright

No better or worse than any other retail job. The store that I worked at let every full timer have every second weekend off, which was nice. There was always some sort of drama going on, but that's not unusual for anywhere.

Fast paced, dynamic environment.

The adage that you get out of this experience is truly accurate at Canadian Tire. If you show up ready to take on what comes to you, you will be very useful and rewarded.

Pros

Staff discount, competitive wages, Profit shares...

Cons

High turnover of staff

Pros

Lunches, Culture

Cons

Minimum wage, Customers, physically demanding

Draining workplace environment

Not very productive or professional work environment. Employees expect you to know everything when you just started working there and get upset if you have questions. Beware of quitting here as well they don’t let new employees know about how when you quit without a 2 week notice they can withhold your pay. This has got to be the worst retail place i’ve ever worked at.

Pros

Breaks i guess

Cons

Work environment

Stressful and lack of respect for employees

They talk a good talk les then half of what they say is the truth after one thing there it’s the money their employees are like prison inmates just a number I worked their fir eleven years the last four years as department Magee at just above mininimum wage and it was a very stressful experience I stated because I loved working with the other employees and dealing with the customers loved the interaction with them

Pros

10 percent discount

Cons

No respect, stressful environment . No raises no matter how hard you work, Worked there for eleven years and only rise to 14.50 per hour in a management position

Poor management, empty promises, poor guidance from management, under staffed, spend way too much time doing multiple jobs.

What a mess that place is! It's where Automotive Service Managers go to die. They went through a bunch in a short time, and it's impossible to reach there lofty expectations. Good luck to who ever manages this place next! Poor leadership, too many bosses, lack of staff, etc. You'll spend time cutting keys, working cash, calling customers, and dealing with rude customers all at the same time. How can anyone run the garage like this? Terrible experience, will never go back there. If you have talent to manage, don't waste your time there.

Pros

It's an experience, I suppose.

Cons

No staff, super high expectations, lower than average salary, too many bosses, its a sinking ship
