Caissier, préposé au service à la clientèle (Former Employee) – Gatineau, QC – 20 November 2018
It was a fun job because It was related to one of my passions, automobiles. But we were 4 cashiers who also had a ton of other tasks including, marking cars, buying used cars, park the cars in the yard, count the cash at the beginning and the end of the shift. Use a money counting machine.
Easy and fun job
I left because of the smell of gasoline in the morning, and cleaning the hangar made me cough dark stuff.
Cashier/ Commercial Scale Operator (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 16 January 2019
Customers were really the only downfall.. Some were very rude and ignorant but the job was not bad itself. Definitely teaches you patience and tolerance. My coworkers were great and taught me lots. Hardest part of the job was probably the manual labor of moving the automotive parts i.e tires, heavier parts such as foors and trunk lids, hoods, etc.
Work outside in all weather conditions, hard labor for minium pay

Not a very good job. You work your butt off to get minimum wage. The work is very physical and demanding. You become extremely dirty everyday. You have lunches provided to you through AIM. They are very good at making you do as much as possible for them and then firing you.
Directeur des opérations (Former Employee) – Sherbrooke, QC – 7 June 2018
I think the company has a great philosophy however the board should practise what they preach. they say they are all about employee retention but not really. I am 1 of 4 new directors that were hired and all let go because they want you to run the store but do it with very little support, very little communication, and unless you are connected then you are always responsible for whatever happens at the store. be prepared to know how to repair machines, water problems, electric problems, and of course have the knowledge how to run a pre-school for children. it is ok if you are single, no kids, no wife, no life then this is a job for you..
you should be single and plan to work 75+ hours a week
extremely long hours, all others work 40 hours a week, Directors are expected to work 6-7 days a week or 70-80 hours a week.
Commis au service à la clientèle (Former Employee) – Kenny U-Pull – 10 August 2017
Attention, entreprise très mal gérée! Journées de travail très longues et impossible de rester assis tranquille pour prendre son lunch alors que l'heure de repas n'est pas payée. Aucune pause autre que le dîner. Surplus de responsabilité alors que le salaire ne change pas. Ils augmentent les salaires initiaux sans avertir les anciens employés, ce qui fait que les anciens employés se retrouvent au même salaire que les nouveaux. Ils parlent beaucoup mais agissent très peu; beaucoup de promesses de promotion mais aucune action. Ils te font sentir mal quand tu dois prendre congé. Gérant incapable de gérer un équipe de travail. Gérant n'est pas professionnel et parle dans le dos de tous les employés sans exception. Ambiance de travail exécrable.
Parts Sales & Cashier (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 19 July 2017
Very poorly managed company, staff is wonderful, helpful and always smiling, management is rude, ignores employees and customers, and are usually being negative and avoids speaking to customers when they need help. The yard used to be great, recently it has become an environmental disaster and the company overall has NO regard for worker safety or the environment. Unsure how they are still running but I could no longer work in such a place, and had to quit. Working 6-7 days a week for 12 + hour days, and NOT getting a lunch. Just grabbing snacks here and there when I have time.
Employees are wonderful
Working 12hr 6-7 days a week, managment doesnt give time for breaks/lunch
