    So they are the fakers and con-artists, employees are just disposable trash to CT in a lot of cases.

    It's good to know that there are some staff who are willing to stand up for what's right, and not give into the bullying.

    As consumers, it's important to know the type of people we'd be supporting, if we chose to shop at these Crappy stores.

    Thanks again for your insights!

    Re: An Ex Ctc Mgr ... speaks the truth .

    its good to know that that theres bullying going on in these stores

    and shocking that ct'er are trying to justify it - instead of taking a strong stand against it

    sounds like these dealers and managers live in the dark ages

    sexist comments on here

    making fun of people with mental illnesses

    insulting anyone who stands up and tells the truth

    just one more reason to avoid crappy tire entirely

    I assume you mean that bullying is bad, but if it's going on, at least we know about it now.

    And can decide if we want to support these stores or no.

    Yes, we should instead compare Canadian Tire's track record to that of say Walmart, who are known for their stellar performance in human rights, gender equality, equal pay scales, equal opportunity for advancement LOL

    bahhhhhhahhahhahahahahaa

    Interesting theory .... that maybe Walmart sucks as much as Crappy Tire does.

    But that wouldn't make Crappy Tire suck any less.

    Just sayin'.

    Fascinating.

    The Crappy People think bullying and harrassment of employees is absolutely OK.

    But if an employee stands up to bullying and harrassement? That's the worst thing an employee can do - fire their asses without severance.

    Nice work-place you've created, Crappy Dealers!

    I don't think I'm missing the point at all. Originally it was an ex-CT manager, now it's a part-time paint desk clerk. Was it bullying, harassing behavior or was it you had an attitude problem and couldn't do the tasks requested from your superior? Definitely sounds like a bit of an attitude and apparently the firing was justified due to the lack of severance. Sorry, got to call you on a lack of credibility.

    It's disgusting the way the Crappy People attack anyone who dares to speak out against the horrendous way the Crappy People treat their employees.

    We hear it over and over, yet the Crappy People always say "disgruntled ex-employee", as if each and every one of the them must be telling the same lie.

    Bullying and exploitation should not be tolerated, yet these jerks continue to approve of it, and retaliate against people who blow the whistle on their tactics, and stand up for themselves against abusive employers.

    Imagine the plight of the employees who are not lucky enough to have other employment options.

    That's what's meant by "exploitation".

    They should be ashamed, these Crappy People.

    Instead, they are actually proud.

    Simply disgusting!

    Re: An Ex Ctc Mgr ... speaks the truth .

    The reality is that Canadian Tire Dealers operate a fifedom where it all comes back to the dealer - the mission is to
    not only cut budget hours, but give 1 staff two departments to look after, plus handle cart stock, plus field calls
    to the desk from local clients in the commercial sector, all the while being watched by surveillance camera, three floor managers and the big white cheeses in the office ! When I read a letter by the dealer saying sales are flat and declining, yet Steven Wetmore reports an 8% over prior year figure, I have to shake my head !

    Misreporting sales figures is corporate malfeasance and bold facing lying to staff and the public - think Enron
    It will catch up to them soon I think as most nights you could roll a bowling ball down the track aisle and
    not hit a single soul between 7 and 9pm.
