Fast paced, hot, and hard working environment.
Pros: Betterment of skills, health insurance (if full time)
Cons: Short lunch breaks/no lunch, time management is unorganized in scheduling.
Honestly, probably one of the worst jobs I've ever had. I was a technician there, and it is the most corrupt place to work for. All the Service Writers get bonuses to scare selling into customers. They oversell everything the technicians write down and they sell things to customers, like tires, when they don't need them so that goes toward their bonuses. If there's a repairable nail in a tire, I'll tell them I can fix it. Then the Tire Manager will go and say it's not repairable and will blow up if they don't replace it. It's not right, its unjust, and it's every reason Firestone deserves the poor rating they get. Your pay is based on what the service writer wants to give you for work. So, if they don't like you, you're not getting that ticket to service. That's corrupt. Hours are extremely long, typically 10-12 hours on a normal day. May be more than 12 if you need to finish a car, they'll have you there all night if they could. Because, you don't get paid to be there. You're flat rate. You're only paid for the work you do. Management is overly strict, it's purely about profit and they have no room for learning. They want you as a perfect technician as soon as you start. They don't always have realistic expectations. If you can avoid working for the company, do yourself a favor. Don't.
