    I have been working at Canadian Tire full-time for more than 9 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.

    I worked at Canadian Tire full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Close to home, 5 min bike ride Made me appreciate any other job Gave me time to reflect on life

    Cons

    Horrible and uneducated manager (had a shrill voice, yelled frequently over the PA, got on everyone's nerves), wanted to get in everyone's business regardless of the scale (which consequently wasted a lot of time), and was in general the most annoying human being I have ever met. Other than it and a couple of other co-workers, it was your basic plain sales associate job. They just made it 10x worse.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire annoying humans
