Pros

Ability for growth/promotion and stability if you kiss enough butt. Simple job with good customer service skills you can do well.

Cons

Employee morale is at all time low. Company will never back you up. Old school buddy system rules all. They will use you up and throw you away.

Advice to Management

Focus on team morale and motivation. Your customers will receive a better experience from happier employees.

    Pros

    Deep exposure to automotive industry.
    Great relationships with local auto service shops (both owners and technicians.
    A great place to learn more about how to do most any repair on most vehicles.

    Cons

    Scheduling matrices and payroll budgets were very hard to operate with. The starting hourly pay was not enough to attract the experienced talent the company needed, and the daily and weekly administrative tasks were often difficult to complete without working more hours as a salaried manager beyond scheduled time.
