So I guess my other post was deleted. That's fine cause I can post as quick as you can delete. Beware of this place, the managers there are crooks. These two are the biggest dope dealers and dope users. I know that they are doctor shopping in florida and bringing back here. Pills are a huge problem here and these two are doing there part to poison our area. I'm not naming their names because they know who they are. Well I'm doing what I can to stop them from doing what they are doing. They run a crooked shop as well. They work their employees from dawn til dark, no lunch breaks, decent pay or any regards for their well being or personal life. They will rip and customer a new one. Stay away! I am telling the truth. I just hope someone in upper management at free service will see this. I'm seriously considering writing a letter to their home office. If anybody doubts my story go there and watch the traffic coming in and out of the side door. They deal ALL DAY LONG

My wife used to work in the credit center of Free Service Tire, back when it was located on Buffalo Street. She was treated like dirt by the supervisor and her lackey. They wouldn't let her go on the phones to take credit applications, which is what she was hired to do. They assigned her other duties that she wasn't sure how to perform. When she asked questions and told them she didn't understand something, she was rudely cut down. The credit center manager kept the office supplies locked up in a cabinet and made the employees sign for everything they took, even a pen. My wife said the entire atmosphere was oppressive and that the restroom and breakroom were filthy. She finally gave her two week notice and they made her leave right away. What we never understood is that the company is owned by a local family who are known to be very religious. Why did they allow their employees to be treated this way? My wife wasn't the only one to be harrassed and disrespected by this supervisor and her lackey.

How come you aren't going to the police with this information instead of throwing it on topix?

I should. But I just want everybody to know know how they are. They go to church to bring in business and have everybody fooled. I'm just trying to expose them a little bit. You are right I do need to go to the police about it. Pills are a hige problem in our area and they are contributing

Pills are a huge problem, and if you know about it and do not go to the police, you are a part of the problem. Don't even go local, call the state police drug task force.

Because I know for a fact that it's useless to call the law about anything around here. There were three drug houses on our street seemed like they popped up overnight, all rentals. They were in the street in front of my house on the phone doing drive-by drug deals. Everyone on the block called the police and the drug task force and nothing was ever done. They told me to sit outside and take tag numbers off of cars. What a Joke!

Think twice before posting accusations about specific individuals or businesses in a public forum such as Topix as you can be traced via your IP address and charged for libel/defamation of character.

All I can say is, I took my car there and they told me it was unsafe to drive, claimed the front end could cave in on me at any time and send me flying into a disaster. I said to myself......"bullshit ". I took my car to another shop and all I needed was an alignment. Need I say more?

I agree USrec. They tried to feed me the same jive and I did like you, went to another shop. They laughed and said my only problem was a slightly worn bushing that would not give me trouble for a long, long time. That was over 10 years ago and I haven't had any related problem with the car since. Seems they all had the attitude going and I never went back to them.
