Pros

Company has a young, enthusiastic management team that is trying to find the right solutions. Recently has begun to focus on moving the company forward with focus on e-commerce and online reputation management.
Executive Management does a good job communicating on a quaterly basis through town hall meetings.

Cons

Spending is tight so it is hard to get funding for initiatives without a clear ROI.
Leadership development and advancement in the field operation seems strong, but is more challenging in corporate positions.

    I have been working at Pep Boys part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    They are rather laid back. All the people at my store pull their own weight. We do have an older guy who is a little old fashion and doesn't want women doing more than he thinks they can. And they work around my schedule so I can have someone to watch my son while I'm working.

    Cons

    Sometimes too laid back. You can ring yourself out with food and drink. And while they say managers are the only ones who can open a door without a sale is a lie.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a little more attentive. When an employee suggests something, try to follow through. I have having to ask over and over again.
