TIRE HAND (Former Employee) – Cold Lake, AB – 13 December 2016
Typical day fix tires and clean the shop, maybe do an oil change or two. I learned alot, still tons more to learn. Management was great and always helped out. co workers were amazing. hardest part of the job was keeping an after hours repair repaired. Most enjoyable part of the job was working with management.
Part Time/Casual (Former Employee) – Lacombe, AB – 28 October 2016
During the day I would answer phones and maintain a filing system that was used for parts and labour hours. Management was ok but they were sometimes rude in they're explanations. My co-workers ended up being very protective of me only because I was one of the only females working there at the time. I learned about the filing system and about the basics of customer service. My favorite part about this job had to have been when I answered the phones and got to learn about customer service.
Tire Technician (Former Employee) – Rimbey, AB – 8 September 2016
The typical day @ Ok tire, was overall an enjoyable workplace. Offering steady work pace. And a great learning experience. The employees respected each other and the management was how it should be. The hardest part of the job was not being close to home but the most enjoyable part of the job was being paid to learn. And help others.
Manager (Current Employee) – Stony Plain, AB – 2 August 2016
OK Tire has been a great place to grow my skills in the customer service field, its a fast paced environment with many challenging jobs and duties of all variety in the automotive industry. I manage the store in all its duties in the day to day operations, including team management of the co-workers and customer relations, inventory, and accounting. The hardest part of my job is managing time to accomplish all of my job duties, time management is a must. Most enjoyable part is seeing a satisfied customer leaving knowing they are happy with the service and the products I have gave them.
Commercial Account Manager (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 29 March 2015

Inventory (Former Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – 19 February 2015
A typical day at work would consist of working in the warehouse and helping my supervisor move and organize tires as well as clean up the warehouse and move tires to their designated spot. Great job and amazing people.
Helper/Mechanic (Former Employee) – Ajax, ON – 14 March 2014
Great place to work, co-workers were nice and they would show me many new things. I had gotten more experience on cars and how they work. Hardest part of the job is working on mini vans, because everything seems a bit cluttered and the job takes more than enough time. Most enjoyable part is to replace old tires with new ones, since there is a lot of machines to assist with replacing tires, it makes the job more enjoyable.
Apprentice (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 12 February 2014
I worked here for 4 months and let me tell you, i was not happy at the Hamilton location. Within the first week i was hit by a car from another mechanic and screwed up my knees. They would not fill out an incident report. I was an apprentice and by law i need to have a licensed mechanic on the floor with me. I was forced to work alone for 3 hours with nobody there. I was cut under my eye and within 5 minutes it was so swollen i couldnt see and was pouring blood. Again they refused to report it. I was told i had to stay and finish my shift, which was another 6 hours. I do not recommend this place for apprentices, or licensed/journeyman mechanics. STAY AWAY
Office assistant (Former Employee) – Lacombe, AB – 12 June 2012
At this job, I would help out with the office work. I would answer phone calls and take messages. I would also do mail deliveries and bank errands. My management was my family, so I got along well with them. Co-workers kept to themselves unless they had a question. There wasn't any hard part of this job. I caught on quickly. What I enjoyed most about this job was having to spend time with my family.
