Sales and Service (Former Employee) – ON – 10 August 2013
Limited advancement. Terrible work life balance...I mean absolutely atrocity. Will over promise and under deliver consistently while pretending to be a viable career option for progressing in management. Terrible management dragging profits into the ground. I can't say enough horrible things about working for this company.

0 time managment skills. Managment only cares about profit sharing. Dont listen to any promise you may be givin, if you do, get it in writing. Store managers couldnt manage a Wal-mart if they tried. You can strive to make each day the best it can be but in the end you just struggle. Take your talents elsewhere.
Heavy truck tire technician (Former Employee) – Sudbury, ON – 13 April 2017
Micro managed to the max, 6 different people to listen to, 6 different things people wanted done at once. Never sure who to listen too. Always last minute jobs before your shift is done making you work another hour or 2 or more. Got told a raise to 17$ happens when promoted to heavy truck and never seen it in the 3 months I was doing heavy truck was only making 13.20 an hour, got told we'll see how I do but yet they had me going on calls out of the shop alone which was completely illegal but I quit once I didn't see a raise.
Automotive Service Technician (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 23 March 2017
overbooking and always pushing the clock when its too busy. unrealistic expectations when it comes to mechanical work. partnership meeting is a mandatory waste of time especially if you have 2 jobs. workplace politics plays a major part in advancing or you can be stuck as a tire tech till you decide its time to quit.
Tire Technician (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 5 March 2017
being a tire technician is quite an easy job once you get into you're own routine, the job is physically demanding but if your in good shape you will have no issue with this job. Advancement opportunities in the company are awesome cause you can do company modules and get wage increases as well as apprenticeship opportunities and management opportunities.

Sales and Service (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 8 February 2017
A typical day at work would be 8 hours or more depends on how busy the store get. Management always had everything under control and make sure we got the job done in a timely and professional manner. Kal Tire is really good with work culture, from safety to being committed to the job. All the team members were great, easy to work with and made the job more enjoyable.
Tire Technician (Former Employee) – Nisku, AB – 2 February 2017
I learned that coming into work early and leaving late is a good way to stay at a company. Although if you didn't like the things that the management liked they would make your life difficult. Everybody was easy to get along with, and the hardest part of the job was management always saying that people were replaceable, and threatening the employees that were going to be laid off, or fired. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people there.
Decent Money, good workers, fun environment
Negativity around the shop from the leaders, and not allowing advancement
