AUTOMOTIVE SERVICE TECHNICIAN (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 11 April 2018
Great place to work. Demanding but in our trade what job isn't.management is great and understanding and provide great technical support. Would suggest working here for any technician or other. Ongoing training and above average pay
Poorly run, and largely obsolete, the further up the management chain you go, the more incompetent they become. This is a dealership that believes in the ancient ideals of a car dealership from the 1960's. This is the kind of place that believes that balloons are the magical amazing key to success, not social media, customer relationship management, or any of that new-fangled internet thing. This is a large dealership without a CRM system at all; in fact salespeople don't have access to computers at all. They are commission-sales employees who can't control their own destiny. Little wonder most days are spent staring out at a full parking lot with no customers for hours and hours on end.
Lube/Tire technician (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 5 January 2017
Great group of people to work with. Work day is inconsistent. We can be hours looking for things to do because few customers are showing up and then be so busy you cannot stop for lunch. But everybody on the team pitches in even if it is not their job. Shifts are 4 X 12 hour days and 4 off.
Accessory Installer (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 9 May 2016
Installed accessories on to vehicles, though i learned quite a bit from the people around me. The management could be unforgiving about things but overall was very good in the end. Most of my co-workers were good, there was maybe 1 or 2 that i didn't get along with too well. The time management was the hardest part, because we would get rushed last minute with a near impossible request and then get a lecture if we couldn't do it. It was mostly a carefree work zone where everyone made jokes and had a lot of laughs.
Free lunches once in a while, mostly stress free work enviroment.
