    I worked at Canadian Tire part-time

    Pros

    Employee discount at Harvey's, Mark's Work Wearhouse and Canadian Tire store locations for full-time employees, paid lunches, relatively easy work.

    Cons

    Limited work hours, company is reluctant to hire full time employees or promote part time staff. Hard work is not appreciated or recognized by management or coworkers. Employees tend to get frustrated because of this and leave the company eventually.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate employees who work hard.

    I worked at Canadian Tire part-time

    Pros

    Co-workers are great and friendly. Made some really good friendships there, and hanging out and letting loose every weekend always gave something to look forward to.

    Cons

    The work, while not especially difficult, can be draining over time. It's a big store and often it felt like the departments were short on staff. The feeling of being overstretched was common with some departments only being run by one person (or even no one) at a given time. The fact that minimum wage was low at the time did not help.
    Also, if you want to be good at the job, management and supervisors will help if you ask, but they won't hold your hand forever. At some point, you have to take the time to learn the products yourself if you don't already know them.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more staff for every department. Encourage decent raises for everyone (or just give them full time benefits if they work the hours). A forty cent raise is just madness in these times. Maybe give a raise once an employee agrees to new training.
