    Pros

    Great place to work. Really chill environment. Upper management is great and really caring for team members. I would totally recommend it.

    Cons

    Limited 401k match contributions and also sometimes the skip over people for promotion. Another this is the pay scale I believe needs to be re evaluated.

    Advice to Management

    As advice to management, raise the pay scale and don't be afraid to pay people who are actually worth paying. It's not hard to lose a good employee if your telling them they're maxed out.

    Pros

    I have only been a team member for 1 week going on 2, however I can say without a doubt that this appears to be a great place to work. All my team members are very quick to help me learn the proper techniques to do an outstanding job. Everyone is kind, friendly, and courteous. I have no doubt that this is going to be THE PLACE I will call my WORK HOME for years to come. To be the best you have to learn from the best so I am in the right place.

    Cons

    None so far. Rude or unhappy customers are to be expected because we have to understand they have a problem with their vehicle. For most they only have one vehicle and it has to be in good running condition. So they may be frustrated that they can not find the source of the problem. You can not keep people from acting rude so you "kill them with kindness" as the old saying goes.

    Advice to Management

    So far I have only one comment; keep up the good work. When you train new employees the right way it will pay huge dividends in the long haul!

    Pros

    Largest aftermarket parts supplier in all of North America.
    Firm belief in core values of Inspire, Serve, and Grow.
    Tremendous growth opportunity throughout company.

    Cons

    The constantly evolving automotive aftermarket can make for difficult sales periods.
    No defined career path for the steady worker that doesn't get noticed.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire and promote from within whenever possible and continue to identify the outstanding performers for their accomplishments because it's not easy to stay on top.
