I love working for Bridgestone, that being said I do not like working at my current location because of some downfalls with management. My co-workers are one of the greatest people I will ever work with as we help each other no matter what one another is doing. They take the time out of their day and help you out or show you new things and they will never hesitate to teach you something that you want to learn i.e shocks/struts, brake replacement, battery changes, etc. The benefits to this place are great, my favorite thing about this company is if you are wanting to become a mechanic they will pay for your ASE classes and certifications which you will get a bonus pay plus a pay raise depending on how many ASE certifications you acquire. This type of business is what we call a self-serve business meaning if you want your paycheck to look great you have to be very motivated and self-starting because it all depends on how much productivity you can do within the week, pay is weekly as well so that is a plus. Starting pay is great and also negotiable.
Starting pay, pay weekly, great environment, learn about cars.
Current management, time constraints, almost no life/work balance.
