Technician (Former Employee) – GTA, ON – 18 March 2016
As stated in the review summary, generally a tire lube place. Depending on your location you are required to do different things. Some locations you have to be both tech and service advisers. Others your just a lube or tire tech. Unfortunately some locations hire on as seasonal help only, and can indiscriminately let go of technicians once the 'season' is over. There are no benefits, and depending on your current stature, wages vary between licensed, journeyman, and apprentice. As an apprentice, expect minimum for a long time with raises being in the cents', journeyman between 13-16 an hour, licensed...well... less then most smaller garages...
Events, usually 50+ hour weeks
Low wage to work ratio, no benifits, little job security.
