Firestone is a great place to start only if your starting as a Tech
Technician (Current Employee), Walnut, CAJune 30, 2015
Firestone is great when your a new tech looking to learn about how to work on cars for the first time. They give you a lot of hands on experience with oil changes, how to take off and on tires on a rim and just things about different types of cars. Like from how to reste oil lights from honda to toyota to GM to ford cars and where the TPMS is on those cars just so you do not break them. And things like how to work on a car with air bag suspension to cars that use special tools to bleed the brakes of the car. Firestone is the perfect place to learn about the different things on different makes and models of cars.The Management kind of worries me. Only a handful of mangers really care more about the techs than making sales and getting bonuses. The hardest part of the job is a number of things. First is that since there is no inventory department, us techs have to unload and organized it off the truck when the shipment comes when there are still people waiting on there cars. And that most service managers promise ridiculous time of service to people when they are getting there car worked on. And also when a car comes overnight, you have to stay sometimes late till 9pm from coming in at 7am and finish it. But the most enjoyable part of the job is the other techs.

Safety program was the most important part of the job.
Engineering Services Manager (Former Employee), Noblesville, INJune 20, 2015
Pros: Was able to eat while still working at my desk writing purchase orders.
Cons: 14 hour days and 7 days a week got pretty old after 35 years.
Establishing a safety upgrade and establish a safety program with written instructions for all aspects of the job was my mot rewarding experience because I was able to establish a written program that was capable of being used by all employees whether it be production employees or maintenance employees and it gave me the opportunity to upgrade the equipment in respect to safety to todays standards by IOSHA AND OSHA STANDARDS.

It was a foot in the door type of job.
Automotive Technician (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CAJune 1, 2015
Your boss gives you the work order to start fixing the customers vehicle. Always use safety procedures when working on vehicles. When changing oil, make sure you have another worker double check to make the drain plug is tight.

Challenging and fun work environment
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Sacramento, CAMay 26, 2015
You stay busy, building relationships with clients and managing front shop and back shop. I learned a lot about cars. I was fortunate to have a great team of co workers. The hardest part of the job is to help a customer that is not happy their car isn't working and assure them we can fix it at a price point and time line. The enjoyable part of the job was helping people fix their car so they can carry on with life.

Must be on your game
Technician/Mechanic (Former Employee), Merididan, MSApril 29, 2015
Pros: Training
Cons: Getting paid flag hours on an antiquated scale
Fast paced and competitive with co-workers. Must be on top of your mechanical game in order to make good money. A typical day involves anything from oil changes to brake jobs and tire changes of course.

Flag hours consist of getting paid a percentage of the labor cost on the work you do. Pay does not reflect realistic rates and was set up sometime ago, in the 70's or 80's.

Hardest part of the job is strong-arming monster tires off of vehicles.
