Amazing coworkers and free use of the garage for doing your own repairs

Advice to Management
Pay what people are worth. 15 years of automotive experience and I make 50 cents above minimum wage. Store owners are cheap!
- Flexible work hours
- Convenient location
- Not much to be honest
I worked at Canadian Tire full-time (More than a year)
enjoyed working there in promotions.
The management didn't keep it real with me when my contract was up, told me "I'll call you at the start of the week", & never got at me.
Advice to Management
That you should be more about what you say instead of being so mad & eccentric.
I worked at Canadian Tire (Less than a year)
- Employee engagement and culture is A+. They have a internal team called the Jumpstart Charity team and every single month they host some type of big event in the cafeteria. While I was there we had the Smoothie Competition and a Chili Cook-off.
- They also have an annual ski trip (highly subsidized) and because CTC is a sponsor of the Canadian Olympics we had a provide lodge and got to meet an Olympic Gold Medalist.
- Quite a few young people, majority of Category Business Analysts are age 25-35 so people are often chatting
- Pay was around $20-$22 which is excellent for an intern/co-op
- You get an email from the President every month and it usually s
- The CTC Cafeteria "Sandy's" is super high quality food and it's highly subsidized so its ecellent value!!! Roast beef steak for only $4. Breakfast too! Bacon, eggs, and potato for $4.
I highly recommend the Merchandising Co-op roles in particular because:
- You are core to the business so you actually learn how CTC makes money and have a look into the profit and loss statements every month. You work under a Buyer.
- You have full time Merchandise Trainers, so you get 3 full days of all day training from an instructor on how to do your job, and you have dedicated support staff in case you get stuck but don't want to ask your manager
- You can occasionally can get some free products because your Buyer will have extra free samples from vendors
I am not sure about the other roles, but I don't think they get as many perks.
- You are expected to be at your desk from 9am-5pm. You should not be late , and working from home is not really an option since its not a tech firm nor a client-facing organization.
- If you are looking to translate your internship to a full-time job, CTC typically pays less than its competitors (e.g. Walmart), however they generally make up for it in terms of benefits and culture. The Emerging Marketers Program or the other new grad rotational programs are highly coveted and beneficial if you want to consider full-time roles.
