Interesting to say the least
Parts Advisor (Employé actuel) – Edmonton, AB – 3 décembre 2018
I worked at Canadian Tire for 2 years, I worked in many positions throughout my time. (Garden center, cashier, security, janitorial, parts sales, and service writer.) As a first job it was great, getting great sales experience, working with big clients, and lots of great people. Unfortunately the training was not their (at my particular store). There is a lot to learn, and I felt that I was the one who trained me, not a manager, not a senior employee, me. The turnover rate was really bad at CT, in 1.5 years in parts and service 15 people came and went in our department. Possibly from a lack of training, or maybe it was the way we were treated by both management and customers.
The hardest part of the job is fighting to not be overworked in the busy season (50-70 hours a week) to the starved hours in the slow times (10-18 hours a week). Never a dull moment, all I can say is it is a good place for a year, after that you best try to seek out upper management positions or leave.
