    Pros

    You have the chance to start your career here if you have good networking skills, even if you are not smarter than your iphone or know literally nothing about anything.
    Central location. Good benefits.

    Cons

    You can get cancer just by observing how some people can get the positions they won't even deserve if they were the only one left on earth.

    Advice to Management

    Choose people with good personality plus good knowledge. I would fire half of the people i know, if i was their manager.

    I have been working at Canadian Tire part-time

    Pros

    It is nice to help other people, especially when you are in the department of your choice. I love the fact that with the right boss, you can achieve a lot of things. They want to know what you think is right or not for the department, and if they think that your point of you is valid and makes sense, they will do it. It's nice to see that we can be a part of the company, and not just serve the clients.

    Cons

    They do not really value the quality of work you do. If you do it, it's fine. If you do it well, it's fine too. They don't recognize the hard work you put in the work they give you. Because it is easy to find another employee, sometimes you feel like just a number they can replace anytime. Even if you are doing a better job then others, they do not value this. They don't tell you that what you are doing is great, that you can have a better salary, or even a higher position.

    Advice to Management

    They never give you a simple thank you for you great work, they never say praise you. They only tell you what you are doing wrong, and they do not give a chance to improve. They rarely tell their employee if they are doing something wrong, so it's harder to improve and to stop making the same mistakes. Also, they really need to focus more on formation, because working in a specific departments demands some knowledge. It is easy to give that knowledge if you work with the new employee, and not for only the first day, but let say, two weeks.
