    I have been working at Canadian Tire part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I've been with CT for over 20 years on and off (Health Issues) in both full and part time capacities. They were very understanding when I wanted to go back to work, and made sure that I had a job to come back to. They teach the importance of discipline in team leadership, and for any young person, I would recommend at least 6 months working here to lay a groundwork for personal satisfaction.

    Cons

    They have recently decided that sales personnel should not specialize in any one particular department, but should have a working knowledge of all of the departments. From personal experience, this dilutes the ability of the Rep to excel in their knowledge of any department. This plan may have been adopted for the purpose of scheduling but it does take away from the pride in a job well done that a Rep feels when he is dealing with customers

    Advice to Management

    Allow Reps to develop a certain expertise in individual departments, and allow the department heads to train and schedule several qualified Reps, in order to have at least one on hand in each shift.
