Cons: my miss several coffee breaks through the week, loss of interaction with fellow employees.
A typical day will include my preparation for my morning drive hauling a load of tires to a store. My coworkers assist with what is required and my supervisor will provide the needed paper work. Upon my return, I will manually unload the tires into plant and document them for data entry.

I love working here. My managers and everyone I work with are pleasant and we are all hardworking happy people.

Data Entry Clerk/Sales Assistant (Former Employee), Edmonton, AB – March 12, 2014
Pros: great sales manager, great buyers
Cons: bad management
Randmar was an ok place to work. The worst part of the job was when management hired family to work there. That destroyed the team dynamic that was created prior to their employment. The best part of the job was the relationships created with buyers and the relationships created with other employees.
Heavy Duty Mechanic Apprentice (Current Employee), Calgary, AB – March 9, 2014
Every day is always interesting and always something new. Jobs can range from automotive to heavy duty, as I was a guy who would do it all light, medium duty, and heavy duty alignments and full services. Co- worker atmosphere is calm and peaceful, and no one is afraid to say what is on there minds. The higher ups all I can say is they give you respect – more... and benefit on any doubts. Steering and suspensions and alignments is mostly what I do on a day to day basis, however some times I do light duty work as a change of pace to keep work interesting. – less

The hardest part of the job was wearing thick coveralls and using the equipment in the – more... scorching heat, other than that it was an easy job. The most enjoyable part of the job was going on call in the service truck helping customers with tire troubles. – less
It was always fun. I loved waking up in the morning and heading to work.
