-8 am to 5 pm Monday to Friday, when it gets busier sometimes 8 am to 8 pm one day a week, and every other Saturday for a half day

-came in to the position not knowing anything about detailing a vehicle, I was taught everything I needed to know and eventually moved in to main detail where I was taught skills I never thought I would ever have to learn (ie: buff and wax)


-I found it a great place to work, obviously you're always going to run in to people that you don't like and you don't get along with, but you'll have that no matter where you work (it's a part of life)


-the hardest part of the job was learning how to detail the cars in the specific amount of time that was given (and yes it can be done, most of the time depending oh how dirty the vehicle was when it came in)


-most enjoyable part of the job was definitely the people that I worked with in the department, for the most part I got along with everyone


-management of all departments make themselves available with an open door policy if you have questions, concerns, or just need someone to listen about absolutely anything
Pros
provide lunches and treats for jobs well done
Cons
like anywhere else, moody people, detail department not climate controlled so it gets hot in the summer, shoveling snow in the winter is not very enjoyable

Is it perfect, no, but what job is. At Strickland's you will be treated fairly and with respect. If you show up at work to work, you will be recognised. There are days when management can be painful, but most times its due because people are not doing their jobs. The job can be very stressful, but when your the only high volume GM store in the area, it is to be expected. Overall, great place to work, and very competitive wages if your willing to work for them,
Pros
Good pay, Free dinners and weekend breakfasts, open door policy
Cons
Can have long hours, very stressful at times

I have a fantastic, hard-working team.

Often we are asked to accomplish highly unrealistic goals.


The hours can be long and some highly stressful days can leave you completely mentally drained.


The work environment can be challenging at times.


No definite system set up for scheduled raises/bonuses, etc. There should be some form of system where employees are scheduled for a review to see what direction to go in order to attain a pay increase or bonus, whatever it may be.
Pros
Great team
Cons
Long hours, unrealistic expectations

-Easily the best reason to work here is the people, best coworkers I've had by far. Everyone's friendly and easy to get along with, feels like a makeshift family

-Hours can be long in any department, making it mentally and sometimes physically straining at times


-Free food is not uncommon


-Room for advancement is minimal, but possible if you work hard for it and make your intentions of moving up clear
Pros
Free food, good people, good management
Cons
Long hours, slow advancement

Very easy to get comfortable to your settings working here! You become a part of the family very fast. I started out being hired doing a job here that i thought would not give me any chance to move up in the company and now i have a better job than i ever thought i could go into being an employee here for less than a year. Management is amazing when dealing with employees and there personal situations if they occur. Would recommend applying at Strickland's to everyone if i could!
Pros
Discounts

Work hours are roughly 50-60 per week (In Service), is an expected work week.
They have taught me a lot, I have been provided with lots of training, tire training, toyota training, WHIMIS, Health and Safety, ect.

Management team is very strong and have been around a long time. Sometimes its hard to be heard by them but they must have their reasons.

In the service department it is a very tight group of individuals who have the same common goal (have fun, work hard).


Hardest part of my job would have to be the hours are not family friendly. The balance between work and life are not balanced, more work less play.


The most enjoyable part about my job is some of the people I work with, now consider family, monthly lunches.
Pros
the clientele base that comes in, free lunches
Cons
long hours, sometimes feel unappreciated
