Working at a bike shop doesn't guarantee competence.

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Its like any service based business. either just go in blind or go by word of mouth, etc. You just have to try. To say all Bike shop mechanics are crap, it a far stretch.

Otherwise I won't have a job.
