    Pros

    Experienced Managers (30+ years at the same location)

    Cons

    Very unorganized warehouse especially for seasonal department, can lead to serious injuries as most things are heavy and a mis-step can become more than just that. Had to leave due to former back injury resurfacing, likely due to awkward heavy lifting in the seasonal department.

    Laid back environment, good coworkers.

    Could not drink coffee on the floor even though all managers did, raises were infrequent and small, management did not give employees the respect they deserved. No health, dental, or drug plan for most employees.

    Interesting to work for a large Canadian corporation who is always looking for new ways to be better

    I worked at Canadian Tire full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    As long as you stay away from gossiping and you mind your own business it is a good place to work.You will literally do nothing if you want too

    Cons

    Very poor management. Managers don't even act like the leaders.No self respect.No good vibe at all.
    No growth opportunity in the company.
    They might notice that you work hard,compliments and whateves but won't reward you. They will just ignore you.
    I was full time but sometimes they made me wonder if it just a scheme. They will say that there are no more hours but they will hire more people in the same department.No regular evaluation which is important for the growth of a company. Tons of training they will make you take online but none practical, they will change your department without a warning and when they won't do it if you actually ask for it.
    if you don't take care of your self you will get anxiety

    Advice to Management

    Be consciencious of you role a managers.Because your employees look up to you. You are supposed to know more than your employees. Evaluate your employees on a regular basis tell them what to do to grow in your company. It is easier for the employees to know what their employer expects from them.REward hard workers as a way to motivate.Before hiring more ask among your employees if some of them would like to transfer departments. Keep your promises.
    Believe me, happy employees is a happy company. Let's be honest you're nothing without your employees. Who struggles when they quit?
