yeah, he was fun, eh?
I work at Canadian Tire and I'm going to give you all a little insight. Canadian Tire is a big franchise, each store is owned by a different dealer. In the store I work at, the dealer makes about 1% from each sale. So for easy math's sake, a 100 dollar purchase gets the dealer a loonie. This is after you take into consideration...blah blah blah...CTC dealers are not millionaires. They are offering the best customer service they have. So when you say things like, "God knows they can afford it", take a step back and think about what I've just told you.
For the record... CT isn't exactly a big box store. Every one is bassicaly a small buisness, they are all owned individually. So paying the employees comes out of that individual stores profit not the corps

I guess your boss does not tell you the truth. The margin in retail industry could be 100% or more. I mean, considering all the facts you have presented, how is it that Canadian Tire has 70% off sales? The way you are putting stuff, you would soon be moving over to Dollar Stores. They have more margins.
I guess you wrote this big, fat write-up while on the job. It is hard to find associates in the store.
And I personally try to be nice to people when they come in to shop, but it all depends on THEIR attitude as well.
Therein lies the problem with Canadian Tire. Employees like this who are ready to be assholes at the drop of a hat if the customer does so much as look cross-eyed at them.
I see the brain-trust is back.
Therein lies his point, he is saying he will try to be nice to everyone but that there are some customers that you just can't please (which is a fact) and you are being an asshole.
