I have been working at Firestone Complete Auto Care full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Pros? lol GOOD JOKE. Only good thing about working their is having a job

Cons

-I came from Sears...well sad to say but Sears is a way better company to work for!!!
-Workers are truly not treated right & the pay is very unfair. Those techs work their asses off for nothing.
- Managers always ask for favors but techs dont get paid for them.
-Their flag hour pay is a slap to the face.
- If they tell you youre going to be promoted it will take a year till you actually get that position.
-ANY ENTRY LEVEL TECH THEY HIRE THEY SAY YOU WILL BE DOING MAINTENANCE!!! PREPARE TO PUT AWAY 300 TIRES A WEEK, SWEEP THE SHOP AND DRIVE CUSTOMERS AROUND.

    Minimum wage disguised as a "career", lies from mangement, long hours, anxiety and depression.

    I worked at Firestone Complete Auto Care full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are no pros but I'm going to keep typing to satisfy the 20 word minimum requirment. I repeat there are no pros.

    Cons

    Lies from management during the interview process. Specifically, they claim all their techs make good money and flag lots of hours. They will try to sucker you in with a high base rate. What they don't tell you is their labor times are literally the lowest in the industry, so the base rate is meaningless. Be prepared for long hours, no lunch breaks, and earning minimum wage.

    Dishonesty is a requirement to work for the company. Your pay and even your job itself is dependent on how badly you can gouge and exploit customers.

    Relentless use of corporate propoganda and brainwashing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Burn every last building to the ground.

    I have been working at Firestone Complete Auto Care full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, the possibility to make real good money (if your in the right place at the right time) and a chance to work for corporate. The company has a promote from within atmosphere, if you have a bachelors degree you can go pretty much anywhere.

    Cons

    You are not in control of your own destiny! Techs (who are paid like crap) have to want to make money for you to make money. Very tough sales goals, and should you hit them, next year will be that much more unattainable. Very depended on market conditions beyond your control. Cars are getting much harder to fix and requiring much less repair and an overall negative cust experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop rewarding great prior year exceptional performance by raising the bar to those exceptional performance, Make goals more attainable and reward those who shatter them! Understand that market conditions change and this industry is heavily dependent on them.
