This X cross pattern was the way it used to be done for non radial tires. The recommended way for radial tires is front to back and back to front on the same side. Just because a shop does it doesn't mean they know what they're doing.

One shop I know of rotates tires in an X cross pattern (unless you have unidirectional tires). It works for me, so do it!
