    Pros

    Large corporation, cares about the customer

    Tasking is outrageous, changes direction often, doesn't listen as much as they claim

    Advice to Management

    Water down your rapid fire. Give your field teammates opportunity to make a difference. Avoid micromanaging.

    Pros

    Great shop personnel, technicians to work with. Great discounts for employees on company products and services.

    Cons

    Upper management pushes hard to sell unnecessary services to customers that don't meet the requirements of the manufacturers service intervals/recommendations. Any customer complaints are directly blamed on the counter personnel regardless of the situation. Company does not promote a positive morale workplace,

    Advice to Management

    Please read above "Cons" for recommendations. Employees should be treated as customers.... They are the frontrunners of the company.

    Pros

    This is a great company to work for if you are on the corporate side. .

    Cons

    The medical benefits offered are high deductibles and employees can not afford to go to the doctor or pay for prescriptions,
    Some jobs are now being outsourced.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to lean ALL job duties on the retail side.
