    Gary is a great guy -- always willing to work with you on stuff. I have not had any dealings with Jay.

    You don't want any. You know as well as I do, anything dealing with rules and regulations gets so fucking thrown out of proportion and mis interpreted.

Tomorrow, I have an interview with Strauss Auto and I got a call from STS about a job. Turns out, one of my old Sears coworkers is a manager for STS and one of the new hires I currently work with is friends with the manager from STS and he has been looking for me since he saw my resume online. So, who knows what will happen. But it looks pretty good for me.

    I am starting to miss automotive. I feel like something in my life is missing now that I am not working on cars.
    I swear if you go to STS which is corporate ,which will screw you harder than my boss does I will come knocking on your door to beat your ass

    Why shouldn't I go with STS? If they can help me get my ASE's then why not? What happened at GoodYear?

    yea they can help you get your ase, but their pay sucks,the way they treat the customers and employees sucks. You ever wonder why STS is always hiring, the same with firestone.


    Well they are now talking pretty seriously about not hooking up the tire balancer in my bay. which makes my work more difficult.plus the normal bs. plus I overheard (actually read his lips) john talking about adding another bay and door in my area and NOT getting a permit. I may be a good bit deaf, but I did pick up reading lips quite easily.

    Well, I have an interview on Wednesday. A buddy from Sears is a manager for them, and he has been asking about me to a friend of his who I work with now. I REALLY don't want to be a salesman. It's not my scene. I miss turning wrenches something fierce. And I don't miss working for Bergen Tire. I don't see anything else happening right now.

    try other Indipendant dealers. Better yet TTP that would be right up your alley.

    Ya know, I have been thinking about that as well. Just keeping my options open. I got two phone calls from different STS shops today. I just wanna find out what their pay rate is.

    Well, here's the thing. I am not married/dating nor do I have kids. I will most likely be taxed outta my @$$, but at least I get a 401k and full benefits. I didn't have that at Bergen Tire. I paid for half of the company-supplied insurance and had to pay out-of-pocket for the AFLAC. Almost $200 outta my check per week.

    just remember when you fill out your tax form claim 0 and when you file taxes claim what you can. Also you can use your medicle bills including insurance in nj as a write off,only if it hits a certain percent though. I wish the wife and I knew that when we first had our son,we would have been sitting in a better spot than we are ATM

    OH SH1T!! I claimed myself on the paperwork for the job I am at now, as the instructions clearly stated "claim 1 for yourself".

    Yah. I am bored to hell. No air tool sounds, no lifts, no tire machines, no cars to work on...NOTHING!!! There are three other new hires other than myself and some of us don't plan on staying. We were not told there was a night shift, we were not told our commissions were based on the items we sold, and after hearing the owner tell us if we were happy making $50k/yr he would fire us, I made it up in my mind I would rather turn wrenches for the rest of my life than get an ulcer from failing sales. I would be happy making $40k/yr to be honest. We were all like

    ...and to add the fact that the general manager was pissed because of the past accidents which were not my fault and him forgetting that he told me to quit Bergen Tire A.S.A.P. and really pissed me off.
