I will miss the co-workers, management and employees. The wages were fair and the work conditions were good. The hours are proper for family life outside work.

Honestly being a woman in the trade is hard but being told I wasn't doing enough when I was working harder and just as fast as the guys there was incredibly defeating. I'm used to the dirty jokes and whatnot when working with men but these guys took it too far. When i was interviewed I was told I would get paid more and ended up getting way less. I was supposed to be an apprentice but they wouldn't do any of the paperwork until they fired me for not being man enough for the job. Worst place to work.
Pros
N/a
Cons
Low pay, benefits only after 6 months, staff was inappropriate, sexist, slow paced, not open to any new ideas, no matter how much work you do it won't be enough.

Worked at front taking customer orders. Then mounted and dismounted customers tires in the shop. when it was slow i would make work. it got really slow. So eventually they sent me into the back yard where all the used tires were and got me to organize there tires. so i would have something to do. I got laid off, they told me it was because it was to slow. but they told work bc a whole different story said i wasn't working out in the front. It was hard for me to understand why they did that because i worked really hard and i made the shop look really clean. But i think they needed someone who was able to stand around when it was slow instead of clean. I'm not sure what it was that i did wrong. I am a hard worker i was taught when it is slow you make work. You don't just stand around. But i guess when you are working up front its a different story.

I had learned and acquired skills I had not previously possessed, such as tire mounting. Learned more ways to mount a tire, as well as tricks of the trade to balancing. Also they had taught me how to properly align wheels.
Pros
free lunch saturdays
Cons
sometimes slow
