Fun and youthful workplace with little incentive for performance
Replenishment Analyst (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON28 November 2018
Imbalanced workloads with minimal oversight from management. HR does not effectively reward performance or seniority. Expect to receive the same 1.8% annual raise that everyone else gets. If you're a top performer you'll see a 0.2% increase above the standard. Can be hit or miss experience dependent on your manager or department. Young and agile work environment. There's opportunities to advance your career if you spend a solid amount of time networking.
Pros
Freedom to explore different careers
Cons
Below average salary, little performance incentives

Great High School Job
Sales Associate at the Uxbridge (Current Employee) –  Uxbridge, ON27 November 2018
Got to work part time throughout high school with a bunch of my buddies. Was a great starter job and of course, didn't expect any promotions, just got a small raise over 3 years of work. Overall, a good place to make some bank through high school or university. You can't slack off, but as long as you put in 75% effort they'll like you. Anything less than that, you'll get bare minimum hours without getting fired. You put in 90%< you'll get lots of part time hours, like most jobs.
Pros
Friendly place with some free lunches every once in a while and out of work meet ups
Cons
Not a lot of notice before your next shifts

Poor chances to succeed
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB28 November 2018
Having worked for Canadian Tire first as a part-time employee and now as a full-time member of their so-called "team", I have learned that no matter how hard you work for them, you will never receive the wage you deserve. I have only ever received a raise twice while working at Canadian Tire, and hardly ever receive thanks for all the work myself and many other employees have put into the store. Long-time employees do not feel any sense of loyalty to Canadian Tire, as they are more often treated as robots instead of people. They do not care if you are sick or have any mental health disabilities. Overall, not a healthy work environment, as everyone is miserable, including management.
Pros
Stellar coworkers
Cons
Eeverything else

Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Antigonish, NS8 January 2019
Decent people, decent hours, minimum wage, without raises unless you move up the ladder. You may get hired on as full-time, but after christmas they'll cut you back to part-time until sales pickup in March/April. Retail job so you are constantly having to try to answer questions you don't now and having to deal with frustrated people. If you're not a people person don't take the job.
Pros
Hours, Light Work
Cons
Cutbacks, Wage

High stress low pay
Service Advisor (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB14 November 2018
Canadian tire offers a low level level of pay with, in a very stressful environment. If that is not that's not good enough expect poor management, at least in the auto service center.
In service your day consists of building, quoting and closing work orders. You wind up working closely with the mechanics to troubleshoot quotes. All of which would be fine if not for management perpetuating the bad experience customers have come to expect.
Expect to get stuck with lots of evening shifts and be prepared to fight tooth and nail for each small raise they give you.
One the other side, the profit sharing is quite nice and having a staff discount is nice.
I would not recommend this company to a friend.
Pros
Profit sharing and benefits
Cons
Low pay and bad management

Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON29 October 2018
Canadian Tire handles the same product too much, they need to fix this to stay competitive with other distribution companies.

They need to focus on their on-line business to have a future.

They recently acquired a company and the companies debt and Canadian tires stock dropped significantly.
Pros
good pay and benefits
Cons
dusty dirty work, cold in winter, hot in summer

not worth it
Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Ottawa South, ON9 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.

Fun people to work with but very poor management
Floor Associate (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON16 October 2018
They need to stop hiring more people when they have workers asking for more hours. If you want to go from 30 hours to 5 hours a week, this would be the job. No advancement in this company. Asking for more hours at this place, is asking management to cut off an arm for you.
Pros
Good co workers
Cons
terrible management and advancement

Full time/Part time (Current Employee) –  Aurora, ON1 January 2019
I learned many key components to be successful at life while working at Canadian tire. The management and the workplace are both very good and it is easy to move up the ladder. The only downside is the pay. It took a very long time to get a pay raise.
Pros
Great workplace, Managers are very nice and understandable.
Cons
The pay

Ok job, if you want to live paycheck to paycheck
Retail Associate (Former Employee) –  Kitchener, ON6 August 2018
Associates and middle management is great. Upper management doesn't care about employees. Poor pay, hard work conditions. Profit sharing is decent, but if you are not a golden child, the contribution is low. Hours are cut regularly, I was "full time" and only getting 29 hours a week. Employee discount is only 10%. If you want an item, wait for it to go on sale, then use your discount.
Pros
Team members, floor managers, hours can be flexible.
Cons
Closing shifts, rotten customers, having to do more duties for the same money, don't believe it when they mention "Advancement Opportunity". Just more work, for a small raise.

Productive and a good place to work for
Fill Crew/Cashier (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB5 September 2018
I learned how to use an RF gun and how to do cashiring. It has helped me to be more a people person and to stop being shy around people.

Being given a good full time hours was really nice to have. One of the few stores that would give 40 hours and that is one of the good things about working at this store.
Pros
having discounts

The Canadian Tire Experience
Auto Parts Associate (Mostly) (Former Employee) –  2025 Kipling Avenue1 August 2018
At Canadian Tire it was fun yet tiring to work the hours during the week. I learned many unique parts at the automotive counter and gained a little experience from customers that my managers didn't know about because they had no clue themselves. The management was very well maintained. I felt like I can trust my managers and co-workers even though I thought I cant. The hardest part in Canadian Tire is going in the morning to start off your day because you basically keep repeating everything you did last time, which is good. The most enjoyable part of the job is to have that 1 or 2 customers make a day at the end of every shift. For an example, some days it would be bad and you would have that one customer come in to make you smile.
Pros
The benefits of working at Canadian Tire
Cons
Angry customers dealt by previous workers
