  1. Don't kid yourself. It's a job, keep your head down and sell the goop to the masses.

    Pros

    Good co-workers, discount on parts, meet people with similar interests.

    Cons

    Obsolete management philosophy, weak information systems, ethics are discouraged. Management believes in shaming employees in order to drive increased sales of damaging "wittdjr" items.

    Advice to Management

    Successful companies find ways to improve communication internally and externally. A recent survey of employees was completed but where is the result? Open the channels of communication and for God's Sake stop pushing those stupid packets! Most of them damage the parts they are used on and short out electrical devices. Customers are not as stupid as you think they are, they have the internet, they have other options. How many fuel pump damage lawsuits are resulting from pushing "injector cleaners" on people.

  2. Helpful (1)

    Rapid promotions when you're competent.

    Pros

    You can move up fairly fast when you have a positive mindset. If you are experienced as an automotive technician, like I was, my experience became very valuable to the company and their interest in keeping me showed.

    Cons

    If you are not a Commercial employee you better expect to work all kinds of different shifts with very little consistency in your schedule. The pressure placed on DIY to sell "check out challenge" and related repair parts is excessive. The district manager will be on the phone with the store manager every single day the reports of grease packs not sold with batteries or air filters not sold with oil changes to a poor stance compared to other stores. Then of course the store manager comes down on all the rest of the employees with an iron fist. All because we didn't sell enough $1.39 battery terminal grease packs with that $115 dollar battery.

    Advice to Management

    Chill out a bit with the witt and check out challenge requirements. Or give an incentive for the the level of grief you give for this stuff. If its so important to the company there needs to be more incentive, not just the incentive of not getting in trouble.
