low morale, no respect, pay below industry standard
Automotive Technician (Former Employee) –  Halifax, NS10 February 2019
with over 30 years as an auto technician i can say the 2 steele owned car dealers ive worked at were the worst places i have ever worked,,
both operated to the same guide lines with maximizing company profits by regularly taking advantage of employees at every opportunity,,
the management are completely unqualified to lead,
mostly because of the low pay, they wouldn't attract any real professional with leadership quality's and experience,
they treat technicians as uneducated labour , and give no perks, not even a turkey at x-mas, nothing,
lunches are frowned upon and forget about breaks,
they made up their own flat rate book at the second dealer i was at that paid far less than industry accepted manuals such as chilton and motor, and only followed dealer times when it suited their interests,,
the easier ,money making jobs , like brakes etc. all go to apprentices and steele invest nothing in their learning towards journeymen status,
the difficult ,low paying work goes to the more senior experienced techs,
its very hard to make an 8hr day if your a journeyman, you need to be somewhat resourceful, or just out right crooked, which seemed to be un-spokenly encouraged, especially financially,
all departments seem to work against each other, i never understood the reasoning in that,
just a terrible and toxic place to work, it amazes me i stayed there as long as i did, lots of empty promises,,
Pros
picing on car parts at 10% above cost
Cons
low pay, long hours, toxic work enviorment, no bonus or perks, no respect, no parking for employees, could never get time off apporved, 6years to get 3 weeks vaccation, no raise in 8 years

Horrible management
Apprentice Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Halifax, NS7 February 2019
Shop manager does not know how to run the place. Just cares what the big boss sees. Doesn’t interact with any technicians. Horrible place to work for. Anyone in the shop will tell you that.

Friendly Staff with work out facility on site
Junior Staff Accountant (Former Employee) –  Halifax, NS8 May 2018
Very friendly staff that worked together to get the job done. Learnt basic accounting during my time there, lots of repetitive tasks but were needed for the business to succeed. Snacks and coffee were always available for their employees, which was a nice benefit. The hardest part of the Job was attempting to complete tasks with minimum training however they were always willing to help and answer any questions you had.
Pros
Free Snacks and Coffee
Cons
Repetitive tasks

Exciting work place.. Never know what will happen
Receptionist (Current Employee) –  Halifax, NS10 November 2015
When I get to work, I check the voicemail's from the night before, I get all my paper work ready for the day, and wait for the Sales People to get in.

What I learned while here was how to stock in vehicles, I was taught how to become more proficient with filing and keeping track of other things as well.

The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing the faces on both adults and little kids when they come to pick up their new vehicles.
Pros
Great team to work with
Cons
Slow Periods
