    I have been working at Canadian Tire full-time (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.

    I worked at Canadian Tire full-time (Less 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

    I worked at Canadian Tire part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    At my location ( The Eaton Centre) the department managers and other sales associates were all wonderful and caring. For a retail job, it's a great environment.

    Cons

    Like most retail, its minimum wage.
    It can be hard to get hours outside the holidays.
    You have to be there a loooong time to get full time and benefits.
    I can't speak for other locations, but you will see A LOT of rude customers, so you have to learn to not take it personally.

    Advice to Management

    I know you guys do the best you can with what you have. Cooperate and the dealers have your hands tide when it comes to wages and hours.
