  1.  

    Lots of stress for little pay. Difficult market and tight profit margins.

    Pros

    Good resume fodder if you want experience in warehouse management, inside/outside sales, and auto parts troubleshooting. You can learn a lot about the automotive industry if you keep your eyes and ears open.

    Cons

    Franchise owner seemed stressed all the time from local competition, 1-800-Radiator's Corporate agenda and low profit margins. This stress trickled down and created a difficult work environment. There was no moral or financial incentive to go "above and beyond" (other than personal pride).

    Pros

    Work is done at the end of the day, dont have to think about it too much after you have gone home.

    Cons

    WAY too much driving, maybe we just had a large territory compared to most but I drove over 20,000 miles last year just for work, over 40,000 when I include the commute and non work activities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont just implement what you think is the best idea, actually listen to feedback from franchisees. Oftentimes individual areas dont fit the corp 'norm' of how things should operate.
