Controller (Current Employee) – 8525 109 Street – 8 August 2018
I've been with OK Tire & Auto Service in Grande Prairie for 10 years. During that time I've worked with a lot of great people and learned many things. Without an education, the owner gave me the opportunity to learn, grow and move throughout the company into my current position. He has mentored me and honestly cares about his loyal staff. I have seen him many times help out an employee in need and I truly believe the team you work with makes the job. I've been lucky to be surrounded by great people, great work and more importantly, grow my experience and career.
Work Flexibility, Friendly Environment, Awesome Co-Workers, Great Wages
Long Hours During Winter Tire Rush, But It Only Lasts So Long
Dishonest, backstabbing, lying, cheating managers and a depressing work environment
Tire sales (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 18 January 2018
This place has dishonest, backstabbing, lying, cheating managers and a depressing work environment, they are constantly gossiping behing employees backs and the threat of you loosing your job for no reasonable reason is always on your mind.
Occasional free lunches during the busy season is the only pro to working there.
Terrible ownership, even worse management and dishonest work practices
Tire Technician (Former Employee) – Lacombe, AB – 26 December 2017
Working for O.K. Tire, Lacombe was an awesome experience. My co-workers at the time were hard-working and generally happy individuals. My management team were organized and meticulous. Everyone worked with each other, as opposed to against, to reach the end goal of customer satisfaction. Worked slowed down, so unfortunately, they couldn't afford to keep me on. I have no bad feelings towards O.K. Tire, Lacombe, I recommend their services to everyone I meet.
Family owned and operated. - Extra care taken in services.
Location. - They need a bigger building and parking area
Tire Technician (Former Employee) – Whitecourt, AB – 29 November 2017
Not much to say, a lot of sitting around waiting for customers, and getting yelled at for no reason. Manager was always in a bad mood. Didn't get much training, felt like I was just there to help with the first snow rush.
General Manager / Shareholder (Former Employee) – Lloydminster, AB – 25 May 2017
This was a business that I originally opened and managed for 10 years. As a new business I started from the beginning and this business was profitable after the first year. I left because I was bored in the industry and wanted to try something else.
