O.k. Place to work, but Not a career vocation.
Sales Associate (Employé actuel) – GTA – 26 janvier 2019
This company provides training with minimal guidance or oversight. That is not necessarily a bad thing. Here is what you need to know, now it’s up to you to use the information and speak with customers. There is no commission so no hard and fast sales quota. I’m sure each location has a budget set down by corporate but how that is calculated is above my pay grade, literally. Minimum wage is the norm or perhaps slightly above, maybe.
With a company making 3.48 billion in revenue Canadian Tire is the parent company with Marks and Sport Chek as included components it’s sad that employees are not offered better pay.
Government mandated minimum wage doesn’t mean companies can’t offer a better salary. No wonder most employees are part time rated rather than full time. Not having to offer any type of benefit puts more revenue in the pockets of everyone else up the chain of command. And on that segway there is no opportunity for vertical advancement within the company. Here is your position, thank you. It’s a little funny how managers are differentiated from mere employees by a collar on their shirt, cute eh ? The employee discount coupled with the fact that you are indoors with no real heavy lifting to do and no quotas to meet is a reason to work here for a short period of time. I can’t see making a career or for that matter a living working here. Managers for the most part are fine and easy to get along with, no reason not to.
For younger people a good in between job while looking to land that dream job or career.
Discounts on products, warm, cool, dry, no heavy lifting
Poor wages, no advancement vertically, no benefits
