Pros

Enjoy the industry and company has a good culture. With so many stores and a large corporate office, there are plenty of opportunity for career growth if you want to apply yourself and actively look for something to do

Cons

The company changes direction constantly. One of the big difference between this company and others is the number of times we change major initiatives. We seem to really have the flavor of the month and i think that slows down our execution at times.

Advice to Management

Work in the store more often and stick with consistent strategy and messaging

    Pros

    Career growth is solid, but you must put forth the effort.
    Excellent perks at upper levels, maybe too many in some cases.

    Cons

    Too top heavy in management.
    Commercial field teams not completely sales driven.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the eeffects of what happens with being top heavy to what teams in the field need.

    Pros

    Teamwork in most stores, most stores have a good manager, make friends easily, has a family environment

    Cons

    Low pay for most starting even with automotive experience, raises are less than a dollar unless promoted, will be passed over for promotions even if you work hard as heck for the entire time you are there. Bosses expect more of you than they do, and dont expect your bosses to listen to any suggestions you have.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your starting people better, give them more opportunities, benefits. Don't pass over people who show promise and stop giving the managers, assistant managers, and parts pros bonuses. the people who should get bonuses are the ones who do all the grunt work!
