Its a no compete clause that is for a year. However nobody has been bothered by it. After you quit/ get fired last thing any les schwab manager cares about it how you farther provide for your family. I think its more directed to quiting and starting your own tire business

Keen boots are my favorite. The only steel toe shoe that my toes are comfortable in. just be careful to not buy any with cloth loops for the laces like what the Braddock have. The Keen Milwaukee model will be the next boot I get from Amazon for about $175. Well worth it for my foots comfort. This job is very hard on boots though so keep that in mind. I've been with the company for 6 years and boots last about 1 year at the most.

Feeling like you’re expected to juggle everything, the vehicle you’re working on, the dang phones that go off every 20 seconds, the people that keep pulling in the parking lot, the massive messes that are left in the bays to clean up at the end of a long and very hot day. That’s not all.

What it actually boils down to, is how big and busy the location is. California’s minimum wage is currently 11.00, at the time I was making 11.00 starting out no experience in this field, but minimum wage was still 10.50. I suspect that the only and real reason why I actually got my first raise without a 6 month review (which I never had after 13 months) was because minimum wage went up and you can put the pieces together on that one. It’s really not what you think you’d be starting out making unless you have a wife or a family to support or you were in the military or had similar field experience, but it doesn’t end there, they’re gunna expect that you learn and be able to do front end work, alignments and suspension jobs if they’ll have to pay you significantly more than those who run around in the front bays all day.

I was a customer about 3 times and was impressed with the honesty and work done on my car so thought I’d try. Let’s just say had I known what it’s like, I would much rather have stayed a customer. You’ll work too hard for the pay.
