Average Working Condition
Merchandizing Associate (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON17 March 2019
They don't provide you many hours if you looking for part-time work.
The working environment is average with good salespersons. You have to do every job on the floor,

Poor Senior Leadership
Sr. Manager (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB13 March 2019
The organization has gone through a lot of great changes at the Toronto Office. Unfortunately the Senior Leadership team at the Calgary office lack focus and structure. They have no regard for their employees long or short term and prefer to hire from outside the organization. They also have no regard for how much overtime the teams put in and have no reward for the employees who put in the extra effort.
The culture has gone downhill over the years. It's become a sad place to work.
Pros
on site gym
Cons
no break, no work life balance, low salary

A lot of good people in canadian tire
General Labourer (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB10 March 2019
Canadian Tire is a great company to start off at and for some its a lifetime job. The benefits suck your rewards there are thank yous and we care pins. Unless you want to one day own your own Canadian tire then I would not recommend.
Pros
The people you work with
Cons
Management Can be sometime inadequate and lacking of expertise

A traditional retailer trying to find its place in the 21st century
Manager (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON10 March 2019
Canadian Tire is a good place to begin your career and, for some, to remain for the long haul. You have an average salary but some great benefits and bonuses if you move to a managerial position or higher. The lack of clear meritocratic culture creates a higher turnover especially with high potential candidates. There is a lot of rigidity with organizational structure that dampens the enthusiasm of those who truly want to advance rapidly. There is also a lot of compartmentalization in the firm which by definition creates confusion on mandates and redundancy of work at times.

Canadian Tire business model is unique in retail as it relies on a network of Dealers across Canada. Profit & risk sharing between the Corporate and the Dealers has been the hallmark of this Canadian stalwart for decades hence making it very risk averse to changes. This resistance to change is a common place within Canadian Tire work culture.

Yet, there is a desire of late to diversify the portfolio of the Canadian Tire Corporate (i.e. a series of acquisitions that attempts mitigate future risk). There is also a desire to make Canadian Tire more brand driven than product focus. As you would expect, these changes are slow and will take time. Most of the old guard are from the traditional merchandising-driven world making the transition even slower.
Pros
A good place to begin your career. Work life balance is encouraged. Free tea & coffee!
Cons
Slow to change. Average salaries. lack of meritocratic culture. slow rise in the corporate ladder.

Good place for students to work
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Brandon, MB6 March 2019
Canadian Tire Corporation offers benefits and profit sharing to staff of a certain length of tenure. Safety policies and on-line training is available, though some is only available at the store which means spending off-time at work without remuneration.
Pros
Free food sometimes
Cons
Nothing

At the time when i was working there the auto managers they had were not that great , at times they didn't help the working staff in the shop when customers where complaining about something that was not related to the work that was preformed.
Pros
Holiday Dinners and benefits.
Cons
Managers at times didn't stand up for workers in shop.

Not the greatest place to work.
Store Associate (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB2 March 2019
working at Canadian Tire can be okay at times depending on your department and season. some of the managers have their ego so high up in the air they think they're masters of the universe. the monitored breaks are pretty bad gives them a reason to gloat you if walk back 1 minute late back from break. little to no raise or chance of advancement unless you want to spend a year for a crumby raise.
they overwork you and still expect you to go the extra mile.
there are good people that work here and are rewarded very little for their efforts just asked why not work faster and harder. just the favorites are rewarded more for the little effort they put in.
I wouldn't really recommend anyone to work here.
Pros
awesome co workers
Cons
management, and everything else about CT

I worked 15 years overall for these people
General Automotive Technician (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON20 February 2019
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.

Good place to work, just don't be here for long.
Retail Associate (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON13 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.
Pros
Experience with retail products.
Cons
Random hours, hard long days, rude customers, little respect from management
