Not even worth applying here - you will regret it! The shop building itself is falling apart; supports on the walls are not even attached to the walls, for one example. All the tire work is done outside in the rain and sun with trolley jacks, rolling tires 50 feet to the back of the shop for tirework (rain gear NOT covered by the company - only 2 blue company shirts provided) and the lunch room and office stink of dead rotting rats and fill up with flies on a regular basis. Rats are in the lunch room crawling on the table, fridge, washer/dryer, getting into lockers and eating food straight out of lunch bags! There is a couple new tools there but the majority of it is old and doesn't work properly; the alignment hoist is practically condemned. As for wages, after several years of dedicated hard work wages are disappointing to say the least. The manager is a real piece of work as well. Goes on hiring sprees for busy seasons and promises guys full time work then sends people home on a daily basis so he doesn't have to pay them. Even going as far as firing not one, not two, but three (and possibly more) employees without just cause just for the sake of cutting costs and not even going about it properly. I was fired with no just cause on my day off, and then replaced with his daughter's boyfriend within a week. I will never support Fountain Tire in Courtenay again, and I will be telling everybody I know to do the same.
Sometimes the boss would buy pizza for lunch
Read below. I will not be doing ANY more business with that store after what I saw and experienced.
