Pros: discount on car repairs and merchandise. owner would have bbq or we would have potluck
Cons: unhappy walk in customers, especially durning busy times, (like seasonal tire changes) they cannot understand that if they do not have an appointment, we cannot do them right away
I enjoyed working with Canadian Tire, I normally worked evening shifts and I would start my day by asking what vehicles came in and what still had to be done. Help any Customers at the counter or on the phone. Go over Work Orders with Customer and make sure we have approval before any work is done on Vehicle.
I learned a lot about Vehicles not just – more... about the engine but also tires.
How to do up repair orders, order parts and how to quote work orders.
I enjoyed management if you had a question or problem they would be there for you.
All my Co-Workers where fun to be with and we always helped each other when needed.
The hardest part was telling a Customer that I know that has low income or could not afford repairs that their Vehicle is unsafe for the roads.
The most enjoyable was the customers especially the regular ones as they would always have a smile and a kind word for you. – less
