So. Redundant the 2nd December in a row!
Yep, 2 years in a row for me, they’re shutting the shop on 24th December.
But this time I’ve got another Job lined up, and I’m off before the ‘ship sinks’ (Which won’t make me popular) but….well…..err…I think I’m going to get laughed off the forum for working at Halfords, right? 🙂
I got bills to pay.Posted 4 years agomboySubscriber
Tough break! But hey, at least you got something to go to that will pay the bills for a bit…
Use Halfords for what it is, an income and a springboard into something better. Many Bike Shop Mechanics that I know have had to do time at Halfords in the past, when losing a job before another decent position became open, it’s not quite the stigma some people think it is. Though be perfectly prepared to work with a load of part time 16-18 year old’s that know naff all about naff all, except how to make a 5 minute fag break last 20 minutes!
Shame you don’t live round my way Pete. I know of 2 shops you could probably walk into round here…Posted 4 years ago

I don’t think it is at all. It’s all good experience. We’ll see what happens, and it’s only 12 mins walk from home, so zero commuting costs

There’s a few jobs about in Brizzle right now I see, I’d love to live down that way. One day, one day…Posted 4 years agoJasonMember
Sorry to hear your current job is no more 🙁 , glad to hear you are sorted out so quickly 😀
Hopefully you can install some sense in the staff in there, as in my experience their advice seems very random at best. Probably see you in there at some stage as I do pop in to get stuff from them when they have deals on.Posted 4 years agoJunkyardMember
my local halfords is good because the spannerists are cyclists
It is down to the quality if the staff and you know your onions
Hope it all works out well for you
I would not fancy trying to index the gears on some of those bikes though but at least all the forks will be the right way round!!Posted 4 years ago
Leku – yes the Sarcin’ is ace, probably my favourite bike ever, to be honest. 🙂
Hi Pete, sorry to hear you are having to move around again, at least you can move straight across without a gap though.
Is it the one at Farnborough Gate?
I will pop in for a couple of tubes and a hello!
Did you get your Ducati tank fixed again?
Yep, Farnborough Gate.Posted 4 years ago
We fixed the tank with good old chemical metal which is still holding.jamj1974Subscriber

Only thing I’ll say is setup on the Tunisian made specials can be interesting at time
and being told by a junior manager that you should be able to build a bike from a box and set it all up in 5 mins
I worked in a Halford’s at 16 – a very, very long time ago… This was doing the rounds even then!Posted 4 years ago
