    A great learning experience, but not an ideal career path.

    Pros

    I loved my immediate coworkers, and you will definitely learn a lot. Getting 20% off of car parts helps out when you need to fix your own ride too.

    Cons

    Upper management is pretty much worthless, and your pay is based off of how much product you sell, so you are pressured to push extra stuff onto customers, which I never liked doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let store managers write their own schedule - you can't run a store with only 2 people on a shift at any given time, regardless of what your numbers say.
