Team lead (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 7 February 2019
There’s a reason this company is constantly hiring. High turn around rate, very poor management low pay poor benefits inconsistent hours and scheduling. Outside of Toronto (gta) this company might not be so bad but because of the regional manager in the gta area this region is poorly managed.
A workplace where I am challenged and my skills are the used to their full potential.
Regional Manager (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 12 February 2019
As a positive and enthusiastic team player, I become excited at the opportunity to work in a challenging environment. Over the eight years of experience as Regional Manager, I have learned that I am able to engage others and align to the goals of the company. It is through my outgoing personality and keen listening skills that I am able to understand what the needs of my team are. Working with strong personalities which can be difficult at times, however I embrace the challenge of ensuring I allow others to express their opinions and concerns, but yet still meeting the goals of the company. As an extraverted person, I enjoy working with others, coaching them to be the best that they can be. Mentoring through experience and increasing sales are the most enjoyable part of the job.
Flexibility to be creative and try new initiatives, as well as the ability to mentor others
Constant change of Associate Vice President above the Regional Manager position
Counter Staff (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 18 December 2018
Most work days include answering phone calls, and chatting with customers in store to find out exactly what they need. Learned a lot more about cars. Management was meh. Culture is low. Hardest part dealing with stupid people. Most enjoyable finding the right parts to help someone out.
loved the staff, the reason for the job but could have been better
Driver, Parts Pro and finally Team Lead (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 17 December 2018
I went to partsource with a bit more automotive knowledge than most, I have worked on my own cars for almost 10 years. I was promoted fast because I had an idea of the parts and the know how. I loved my staff I worked with but management was lackluster. Hence why I left.

terrible place to work never gave me hours tried their best to get me to quit by refusing to respect my availibilty adding shifts to my scheduke the day before and not notifying me, treated as if i did not know anything. wouldn't recommend working here at all
TEAM LEAD/SHIPPER RECEIVER (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 15 October 2018
Corrupt politics & poor management. No paid sick days for full time employees unless the employee buys into a Manulife package. No profit sharing & not a positive work place. I am currently looking for other means of employment.
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Smithfield, ON – 23 August 2018
Failure to incorporate quality management to all departments and inadequate use of empowerment and teamwork; failure to develop employee participation. Lack of proper training and preparation Inappropriate supervisory structure or culture of the firm for implementing TQM (they don't even know what TQM is). Lack of involvement and commitment of top management Inability to build a learning organization that provides for continuous improvement and very poor planning. Ineffective measurement of quality improvement and inappropriate reward system. In a few words, be ready to work in a very unprofessional environment for dimes and nickels. Canadian Tire is a great company to work for and only the HO is a good option but if you have some self-respect, stay away from this position.
Parts Clerk (Former Employee) – Sarnia, ON – 1 August 2018
My work experience with the team at PartSource Sarnia was fantastic. Just don't expect to get more than 25 hours a week at minimum wage. There is very little room for advancement.The work is fairly light so it reflects the wage.
Discount on Auto Parts
Working short- inconvenient shifts, mostly weekends
Parts Person (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 25 June 2018
Management can be okay sometimes not the greatest Demand a lot of its employees. Sometimes too much. Other employees are extremely fun to work with. Overall and okay job to have if you’re in between jobs. Not too much room for growth in the company
Amazing if you are always busy. Old boys club. Useless management.
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 19 June 2018
This job would be perfectly passable for a low expectations job (low pay but easy work). When I was busy driving it was awesome. When it wasn't busy it was a toxic environment. Most of the store staff are totally chill, it's diverse. But in the delivery department, two or three very insecure retired men would basically spend all day ridiculing everyone else. If you were a woman or an immigrant, or someone with special needs they would find every possible way to make the job socially hard until you quit. I watched them do this for a year while I kept busy doing my job. Then it got slow for a few weeks and there were no new people to harass so they started on me lol. PartSource is owned by Canadian Tire. There are plenty of policies in place that say a harassment free work-place is what they want but management doesn't enforce it... and really why would they? the pay is so bad that the only people who would stick around are people who don't care how much they make and don't really need the job: bitter old men. Good luck!
