Mechanic (Former Employee) – Milpitas, CA – August 18, 2017
You don't get paid enough to care. You learn how to cheat tech inspections, hide problems on customer cars, fake repairs and services. Your coworkers don't care, management wants you to be quick about it, why should you care?
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Daly City, CA – April 13, 2017
Great place to work because management Is very supportive. One of the reasons why I feel Wheel works is so successful is because they teach you anything you want to learn about the business from mechanics to management. Another reason is that they are very open to employing inexperienced individuals.

Well works is a nice place to start working if you're looking to work for the automotive industry. However they say it will be easy for you to move up but not everyone gets the same opportunities fairly.
Journeyman Technician (Current Employee) – Hayward, CA – November 22, 2015
You end up working long hours at this job that you will never get back. They pay rate always changes and the opportunity for advancement is ridiculous. Management is poor at best, concerns that are made aware of are never addressed. You only have a chance of a raise once a year, and the pay will NEVER be proportionate to the amount of effort given. This is a SHORT TERM JOB, DO NOT GET STUCK. This is not a career job. They don't even properly screen new technicians entering the business, and expect flat-rate mechanics to train hourly workers.
P/T Tire changer/Maintenance Tech (Former Employee) – Antioch, CA – December 2, 2013
The workplace was a very fun space to be. My coworkers and I got along with ease and even became friends. We always helped each other with the work load so that someone could go home early. It really felt like another family.
