Office Administrator (Former Employee) – London, ON – 16 November 2017
There is not much room for advancement for Office Administrators. But the company is great to work for, good benefits, great deals if you need any work done on your car. Co-workers are great people, and the management team is great to. Learn lots about vehicles, and can see some pretty cool stuff. Monthly meetings suck at 7pm at night, but the food ordered to eat was always good.
Productive and educational place for automotive proficiency
Tire Technician (Sales and Services Hourly) (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 7 November 2017
It is a very fast paced environment at Kal Tire Foothills Branch, and there is so much to learn and opportunities. Most of the day consists of dismounting, mounting and balancing tires for passenger vehicles. The workplace environment is pretty easy going and the learning curve is not that high as they do their best to train you for the job. The management however could use some work especially if you are at the Foothills branch. The senior manager there does not comprehend the idea of part time work. I currently work here while going to university, but the work/life balance here is non-existent. They call you in to work on days you have requested off for school. They do not sign off on holidays requested months before, and when management signs it they consider it as a bargaining chip. The senior manager has also threatened our job security if we cannot work on our days off. Kal Tire is overall an enjoyable place to work due to the other workers and the learning opportunities. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the managers.
