It was good place to work but pay started to decrease drastically.
Technician (Former Employee), Wylie texasJuly 8, 2014
Pros: being able to work.
Cons: not having any work to do.
I liked working for Firestone. But in the automotive industry I was paid flag rate. So that means I would be at work for 50+ hours a week and if there wasn't any cars coming in I wouldn't get paid. The company was not bringing in enough cars for all employees to make a decent paycheck.

I was hired at a certain rate however, after working the required hours my hourly rate is not good. I have enjoyed the extra training they provide. I am looking to better my circumstances.

Good in beginning but hard on life to work 60 hours a week
Store Manager Trainee (Former Employee), Arlington HeightsMay 20, 2014
Pros: pay is ok, some co-workers are good people
Cons: hours, stress, environment is always filthy, rude customers, push for sales
If you have a good store with good mechanics and a good manager then the job is not that bad. BUT if you have bad mechanics and a new boss then its going to be a nightmare. Phone rings every 2 minutes, chaos everywhere, be prepared to work late many times a week. Some customers are easy to deal with but some are the worst, be prepared to get yelled – more... at everyday for something you didn't do. – less

Automotive Technician (Former Employee), Fredericksburg, VAApril 15, 2014
Pros: they take care of there employees as best they can
Cons: heathcare is very cheap
company believes in investing money to train a tech to be better at his job than rather having him or her not being confident or able to do the job at hand. Learned a lot though it was one of the better companies iv been with in my career as a auto tech

Service Writer (Former Employee), Midlothian, VAApril 7, 2014
Firestone was not a bad company to work for, I just did not get the opportunity to reach my goals with the company due to cut backs from drop in sales.

Flat rate Pay System does not do the mechanic justice.
Technician (Former Employee), Lakewood, COMarch 28, 2014
Pros: good training courses.
Cons: the flat rate pay system needs to go.
They want the job done sloppy but accurate and rushed. Major sellout corporation who wants more then their share of customers money and expects way to much as far as their hard laboring employees deserve.

Dingy, Dark, Dirty, Hot and Smelly
General Service Technician aka Lube Tech (Former Employee), Fond du Lac, WIMarch 21, 2014
Pros: freedom, variety of work
Cons: corrupt management, poor working conditions, low pay
A new shop in the 70's that never got updated. Still using outdated car lifts and oil guns with water in the lines. Hope you like milky oil.

Store management keen on getting the best of the workforce. For example: you get a tire discount of 50% but, if you didnt know, management would give you 30% and pocket 20%.

About the only positive thing i can – more... say is that we had fun but, that was because there were no rules. It was basically a zoo. So, not really a good thing. Also - strangely - you got paid even if you worked on your own car. Not sure if that was corporate policy or store policy. Either way it was fishy.

You will be a good fit if youre a kid that likes cars and aren't really concerned with work ethics. – less
