Yeah, it definitely feels like one. I never had such a bad experience with a shop before.

I thought about it but unless they give me a refund , I paid $150 for it and I want the job done with a discount or I want my money back then Iíll go somewhere else. Iím not going to just give them my money and give up cause theyíre a bunch of idiots.

      How else are they supposed to learn?

      Management sounds like the issue. No new tech will do great work if he's surrounded by slackers.

        On the same page as @cluelessk

        It seems like a couple of things.

        The employees are lazy. Not trying to solve the problem and not WANTING to learn. Just deal with it until they give up and push it out the door.

        The other employees most likely reinforce that behaviour by doing the same things themselves.

        Management isnt taking the time to properly train and educate the new employees on how to properly do the procedure. Education and training is a costly thing that most places cant afford since the turn over is high and time is short. They think "why bother" and let the rookies just donk around until they either quit or get fired... for lack of effort or knowledge. Go figure.

        Now, I dont know your truck, and I am not in any way saying that you have set it up wrong. Is there a chance that your lift/tire combo is messing with the suspension that is making it difficult to align?

        If you end up going elsewhere, the techs at Gerry Gordons were awesome with my legacy when it was lowered, they had the only inground lift at the time.

        Which location are you going to? The Kal Tire on Warman has always provided me with excellent customer and tire service.

                  Jesus, does no one prepare early for snow? One of our customers is a tire distributor, between 5 tire shops we have tires for today, there are 71 tires. 90% are winter's.

                  First snow and everyone starts freaking out.

                    Buckle up for this one.

                    I ordered a set of WS80s for my WRX a few weeks ago at Costco on Regent. They came in last week and I wanted Costco to remove the summers from my extra wheel set, put the winters on them. I dropped everything off on Saturday at around 9am, they said it would take up to 48 hours. No problem, I have a broken arm and can't drive so take your time. Call them on 8 times yesterday trying to figure out whats going on, they don't pick up. Finally call me back at around 4pm saying their machine broke that mounts tyres on wheels, tell me I can wait until they fix it (they don't know how long) or take to another Costco.

                    Get to Costco Regent, grab my ****, have to do a refund on the portion of the receipt for the mounting and balancing, fine whatever. Drive to Costco St. James, explain everything to the woman at the front desk she says fine they can take care of it and to pull up to the gate to drop everything off. Tech meets us at the gate and starts saying **** that they can't keep them overnight, they're super busy, he hasn't had a break all day, started saying that Costco Regent lied their machine broke cause they're busy and want to unload their work on the St James location, not my problem dude you guys said you can do it. Then he starts saying that it might take days to do cause they're so busy, like do you not see my broken arm? I don't care if it takes a week just get it done. He goes on to say that tyres and stuff get lost, etc. and the woman at the front desk comes by tells him to get his **** together and that we're all good to go.

                    Hopefully this is the last headache, but I'm not impressed with either Costco right now. And if they do in fact lose any of my tyres of damage my wheels I'm going to royally flip **** on those idiots.

                      Sounds like a nightmare. I don't think I'd ever get a place like Costco, or Walmart or anything to do stuff like that.

                      Luckily I've got family that owns a tire shop haha. I just mount/balance my own **** on weekends or evenings. And access to a lift is pretty awesome too.

                        Wow this is brutal, I remember last year when I bought my WS-80's it took them almost a month to get them in stock and then they sold them to someone else! Then they happened to find another set and gave me those.

                                    So I'm supposed to get a part for my focus today, it's in Beausejour. We agree on a tube and I start driving. I get to Winnipeg, they cancel.... Fuuuuck why are people like this lol.

                                    Side note, Maverick has no issues so far with extended periods of driving lol.

                                      Very true. My dad swung by the place after work yesterday and they did all the work. Just didn't call anyone about it.....

                                      At least this is all done now!

                                          Probably. Was in the city today, bits of rain, sleet, and snow. Might be a fun drive in tomorrow.

                                              Yeah it's like a different season in the city lol. Left home in the middle of a snow storm, 4-5" of snow, highways completely snow covered. Bout half way in, nothing.
                                              Highways were still a bit icy in some spots but no snow at all.

                                                  We've got a decent amount. Some pretty deep snow drifts down the backroads.

                                                  Ditches are full in most spots, might rip the sled out.
