    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Canadian Tire.

    Interview Details

    I handed in my resume at the customer service desk, and about a week later I got a call asking me to go in for an "interview". This interview was a forty minute long video which asks random skill based (hardware,math) questions. You write down your answers and if you do well, you might get a call back. Less than a week later I went in for an actual interview which lasted maybe ten minutes and was hired that day, and scheduled to come in for a three hour training shift the next week.

    New Graduate - Technology Leadership Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Canadian Tire in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and about 3 weeks later received an email from Campus Program Specialist for a 15 minute phone interview. I was given two 2-hour slots and was told that I will receive a phone call anytime between these two slots.

    I didn't receive any phone call from Canadian Tire within a given timeframe. I emailed back but didn't receive any reply.

    Many phone calls and voicemails later, I was told that they selected a bunch of candidates from the first few they called for the in-person interview. They didn't think it was necessary to inform remaining candidates waiting for a phone call about the development.

    This was the worst interview process experience I had in my professional career. The hiring process itself for the role of "Technology Leadership Program" says a lot about leadership and coordination within the company.

    Sports/Seasonal/Hardware/Housewares Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Canadian Tire.

    Interview Details

    I did most hiring and the interview process usually would consist of meeting and getting to know 4-5 people in which 1 of those would be chosen for the position. Some stores do no interviews so you basically go in and start, others are even more detailed and will have follow up interviews as well.
