Current Employee - Crew Member

I have been working at McDonald's part-time for less than a year

Pros

- They contacted me back really quick - Super Duper easy and flexible

Cons

- Can't think of any

Current Employee - Manager

I have been working at Canadian Tire full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

CT has a lot of people that are great to work with and a positive work environment. They share in their success through a great profit sharing program and promotions are very much performance based.

Cons

With the company being so much more aggressive now the pace of change is very fast and the demands on the employees have increased sharply. The result is stressful environment where there are not... enough resources to get the job done well.

Advice to Management

Remeber how valuable your employees are. Don't drive them away by making them choose between work and their families.
