Helper/Mechanic (Former Employee), Ajax, ON – March 14, 2014
Cons: long hours
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 – more... machines to assist with replacing tires, it makes the job more enjoyable. – less
Apprentice (Former Employee), Hamilton, ON – February 12, 2014
Pros: hour lunch.
Cons: horrible management, no heat.
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 – more... 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 – less
Office assistant (Former Employee), Lacombe, AB – June 12, 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 – more... this job was having to spend time with my family. – less
