    Cashier Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Canadian Tire.

    Interview Details

    I handed in my resume at the customer service desk, and about a week later I got a call asking me to go in for an "interview". This interview was a forty minute long video which asks random skill based (hardware,math) questions. You write down your answers and if you do well, you might get a call back. Less than a week later I went in for an actual interview which lasted maybe ten minutes and was hired that day, and scheduled to come in for a three hour training shift the next week.

    New Graduate - Technology Leadership Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Toronto, ON
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Canadian Tire in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and about 3 weeks later received an email from Campus Program Specialist for a 15 minute phone interview. I was given two 2-hour slots and was told that I will receive a phone call anytime between these two slots.

    I didn't receive any phone call from Canadian Tire within a given timeframe. I emailed back but didn't receive any reply.

    Many phone calls and voicemails later, I was told that they selected a bunch of candidates from the first few they called for the in-person interview. They didn't think it was necessary to inform remaining candidates waiting for a phone call about the development.

    This was the worst interview process experience I had in my professional career. The hiring process itself for the role of "Technology Leadership Program" says a lot about leadership and coordination within the company.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Canadian Tire in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    I simply do not have any advice, they took me in almost without any questions because a relative of mine referred me and was only there to review the rules, and job responsibilities. Wasn't asked many (any) questions.

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Canadian Tire in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Culture is warm. Vetted through my resume, then a meeting with HR first, followed by an interview by the person I would be reporting to, 3rd interview was with his manager for approval, and then a 4th for overall review approval again with HR and my report to. It came down to myself and one other.

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Windsor, ON
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Windsor, ON
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Canadian Tire in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the job in person after hearing from the friend of a worker that the management preferred a hand-in to online. I was initially contacted in the beginning of March (three weeks after my hand-in), but it took until the beginning of April before they were prepared to schedule an interview. It then took a further four weeks with two follow-up calls before they would give me a decision regarding the position. I found the whole process really lengthy without any reasonable excuse.

    Coordinator, Dealer Services Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Toronto, ON
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Canadian Tire in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I did a phone interview and in-person interview. The staff were incredibly friendly, the questions were all very normal (tell us about yourself, skills, weaknesses, experience, etc.). The only thing that threw me was the the job listing and initial interview led me to believe I was interviewing for a job that integrated HR skills and training, and then when I arrived for the in-person interview I was told it was more of an executive assistant role.
