My muffler was on the verge of falling off due to rusted hinges, so I decided to go to CT because it was the only place that could do it after 6 PM. Thus, I didn't have to take time off work. Suddenly the putting on hinges turned into the catalytic converter and its flange being rusted through...
i have a quick question..read a few blogs about current and former CT employees.. Is there anyone on here, who has been unjustly laid off, fired, or has gone through constructive dismissal? I was injured at c.t. This year, have soon discovered how a dedicated employee is put through the...
I used to love my job, I took passion in learning about different and new produts in the store, even stuff outside of my department I preferred it that when I got a compliment I would get something out of it but the new pins system is okay, I guess.
I even hung out with a lot of people from work...
Some of the other threads are getting clogged up with claims from The S-Angria-Troll, that consumers themselves don't actually want retailers to take things back, if the customer is genuinely unsatisfied with a product (that doesn't suit their needs, is too noisy, was poorly designed, doesn't...
here is my story. I have been working a job and a few jobs for almost 2 years after I quit canadian tire.
this old supervisor , a girl younger than me, came in with her sister or cousin (also a canadian tire manager or supervisor) and cursed, swore, called me names a week before Christmas.
It took their automotive service centre 5 weeks to fix my timing belt and replace my cylinders. The invoice said they only performed 7 man hours of work on my car. Throughout the entire process I was calling their automotive service centre twice a week for every week that I didn't have my car...
Well, I came across this board while looking to make a official complaint to Canadian Tire head office but since they apparently don't have a means of doing so I'll vent here.
I work 9-5 but I am desperately in need of evening and weekend employment. There is a Canadian Tire right across the...
Canadian Tire Home Installation (Ontario) does garage door openers, heating and cooling installations.
We did the garage door installation.
People, DON'T USE THEM. Run away!
The garage door installation is hanging by an extension cord. Whaaaa? Now we need an electrician to complete the work...
Hello to everyone from BC:
The administrator of this site assures me the software they use to run it is top notch and that only the users are faulty. Lets agree to disagree for now.
As you can see I am a bit out of sorts, because for me, it is all about tires.

Hello, as with everyone here, I've had an inexcusably bad experience at CT. In my case, trying to return defective goods. The clerks were treating me like a liar and a theif. I had to phone customer service on my cell while standing in front of the assistant "manager" while he was texting his...
Last weeks flyer (week of Feb 4) listed a 29 LED shop work light on sale for $14.95. Magnetic base, hanging strong wire cable, a nice unit. Dropped in to get it, as I now refuse to go to the Napanee store, to find NO STOCK, but instead they had an end isle display of a 17 LED work light on sale...
A common complaint across the country is that Canadian Tire stores advertise items at attractive sale prices, but those stores don't carry sufficient stock. People come for the sale items, but the can't get any.
They might be tempted to just buy a similar item at a higher price. And while...
I have a bunch of PowerXchange cordless tools. It's unfortunate they have two battery systems with the same name and voltage. Mine are the style with angular batteries, not the brick shaped batteries.
Here is my opinion o
1/2" Hammer drill - Excellent. Lot's of power. Metal gear case...
There certainly are a lot of complaints about automotive repairs at Crappy Tire stores.
This thread can be a place to collect the many stores of unnecessary repairs and over-charging. As well there are stories of incompetence, and also incorrect and incomplete repairs.
For stories about tire...

My wife bought this product almost a year ago. It never worked correctly. We have so many unnecessary holes because of it's inaccuracy. I decided to give it one last chance today when I was installing a hose reel. I would of been better off guessing. So, wondering what I have for options. I'm so...
We tried to return an air nailer that has never been used. Why has it never
been used, because it does not work. When we went to return it, we were
told it must be taken to a repair shop. What a stupid deal. Return a brand
new tool to a repair shop, and DO NOT RETURN TO STORE!!
What is that...
I'm interested in hearing other employees situations and what it is like to work at other stores. Are they all the same? Does your store operate the same as this one? ........
We have to buy our own pens (even the ones the customers have to use to sign their credit card receipts). Trying to...
