    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

      I worked at Canadian Tire full-time

      Pros

      1. Amazing culture, supportive and caring. Direct managers and co-workers were really great. 2. Particular work was interesting and challenging, though more from a business/understanding perspective than raw technical challenge, though that was there.

      Cons

      1. Old-ish hierarchy; hard to advance in a purely technical role. It seems like the only way to advance is to focus more on management than technical aspects. 2. Somewhat behind in technical aspects - not much exciting technologies being used right now. 3. Salary advancement is very slow.

      Advice to Management

      Please increase pay for technical roles, or, at least, give an indication that there is a progression of technical roles, rather than the feeling that one could be stuck in a role for a decade with little increase in pay. I think there is way too much of a hierarchy. For the senior data analysts who build models, please let them go and meet with higher-ups to explain the model themselves, instead of playing a 3-layer...
