    horrible pay for experience

    Hey so first time poster here just found the website. Pretty frustrated with Canadian tire. Long story short they pay crap, even when your bringing dealership experience. I worked for a GM dealer that recently closed, and in a pinch, took a job there. So far thats probably the biggest mistake of my life so far. continuing to work there would be #2. I have 2 years of dealership experience and am a level 2 apprentice when i get back from school soon. I have made minimum wage, 9.50/hr for almost 9 months. I was promised raises, bonuses, etc when i got back from school that wont ever happen. There cheap, liars and manipulators. They know how to keep staff there with false promises and lies. Eventually you figure it out and the jig is up. Since I started there the autoservice has had about 12 people work there in 9 months. I barely remember half the peoples names. Another important point is the majority were about 17-19, had 0 experience, and borrow tools off others. I've seen 3 motors replaced due fuck ups with these kids. 2 for never having oil and 1 for a loose drain plug. Thank god they at least keep them away from brakes. Id boycott canadian tire and take your car back to the dealer, or at least someone at a smaller shop that you can build trust with. just my $0.02

    was hired right after I quit high school for below minimum wage with promises of appretiship. I did brakes with little or no supervision and a lot of tires and exhausts. I was talked into buying a shit-load of tools which would come off of my pay. I worked every Saterday while mechanic went home and if there wasn't any brakes or tires to do I was expected to unload, by hand, trucks or paint or other meanial tasks, for less than minimum. Got fed up and went back to school.

    You have it backwards. If they were shitty employees, they'd be managers by now.

    If I wanted shit from you I'd just wring your neck.. go back to arguing with the customers for minimum wage and pay a little attention before running your mouth. I can see why you like CT so much, fuckin' no mind

    You MUST be a CT employee with that attitude, not competent enough, give your head a shake. The thread here is shitty pay to go along with shitty work conditions, how you get competency of someone who was sucked into at age 16, by some owner of a crappy tire to work for less than minimum wage. I was competent enough to do brakes and tires and value the experiance that I got some 35 years ago, I was just taken advantage of by some money hungry prick that wanted cheap labour. At least I can change my own oil and service my vehicales properly which is more than I can say for some CT employees
