Family Oriented
Good family run company. Good about bonuses and time off if needed, generous to a fault.

Downside is that if you worked in Head Office, you were stuck in your position for however long you decided to be there. There was no room for advancement or growth, no development plans no way to become better and advance within the company. I saw some good people leave because there was no where for them to go.

Worst company to work for
Head office does not care about their employees, the franchise owners don’t know how to run an automotive shop. Benefits are horrible if you receive any. Long hours, with no overtime. There is a long list of negatives for working for this company.

Productive and Demanding job
Working at the shop can be stressful from day to day. Recommend having tools when applying. The management is good, the assistance from the staff will help you get through the day. Hardest part about the job is the demand it requires, may have to stay after hours to finish jobs. Getting lunch on the weekends was a good part of the job.
Pros
Nice Staff, free lunch on weekends, nice atmosphere
Cons
Long Hours, no free time

A great work environment
779 The Queensway is a decent place to work. They challenged me to progress in learning more as well as maintaining a high level work ethic. Because of my time there, I now hold a high standard for the garage I currently work in or any others in the future. Customer satisfaction is priority, and the whole team is great to work.

Depends on who is running the store
Been at this location for about 3 years, good place to start out you get to do all type of work.
Been through 3 different owners over the 3 years most of the time they are all right but due to the current manger at the store its just not worth it.

I would NOT RECOMMEND this place unless the management changes.

Great Company
A very honest, thoughtful, hardworking and reliable group of stores. The company alone is a great, widespread company that services many cities in the GTA and allows customers to have a care free mind with their vehicles at standard and safe positions.

Avoid
Long hours and be prepared to deal with the lowest of the low in terms of customers depending on the location. Try to find a drama free location as there’s lots of it everywhere in certain franchise owners shops.
Pros
You can say you’ve made xxxx for the boss.
Cons
Long hours, no overtime pay.

Treats employees poorly
Wouldn't advise working here, zero opportunity to advance poor leadership and no job security. Likely if you're an apprentice there'll be zero time to do any real work.

Overall
I did not enjoy my time at green and ross. I was constant being yelled at for not sweeping or cleaning the already clean floor and I was not learning anything.
