    Should think about shift timing changes.

    I worked at Canadian Tire part-time

    Pros

    - Great Staff
    - Range of Departments allows anyone to work there

    Cons

    - Their system is poor in some areas
    - You may be put into a department you are not familiar with when you are strong in another department (for example, getting put in the seasonal department when your strong suit is the housewares department

    Advice to Management

    - Allow employees to work in their stronger departments more often rather than have the employees work in all areas of the store as there is too much to know when customers ask you specific questions about certain products

    I worked at Canadian Tire (More than a year)

    Pros

    Toronto office is absolutely stunning and at a great location (if you’re not driving in). Tons of shops and restaurants in the surrounding area, and located right on the 1 subway line.

    Employees have access to great contests and giveaways, subsidized lunches and free coffee.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, management’s overall behaviour and attitude towards subordinates is borderline abusive.

    It’s incredibly disheartening to witness the way anyone above manager level speak to their teams or other employees. Turnover rate at the full-time employee level is incredibly high due to the stress, anxiety and abuse inflicted on employees by their superiors or other superiors.

    As a Canadian company, it is a poor representation of Canadian kindness, respect and fairness.

    Advice to Management

    You’ve created a crazed title driven “everyone for themselves” environment. Employees are so focused on gaining a VP in their title and an office with a door that they are willing to sink to manipulative and abusive behaviour.

    Focus on fostering a team environment and healthy communication between employees and management. Yes, everyone is replaceable. However, you cannot create efficiencies in any department if the same position needs to be filled every six months.
