Pros

Flexible schedule, lots of learning opportunities, convenient location for commute from home or school. Never felt like I was dragging in.

Cons

Location near commuter station meant lots of customers came in expecting "valet" type service - oh could you get me this, and run because my train is in 3 minutes

Advice to Management

None - I shared my opinions before leaving. Not sure if it made a difference for current employees.

    Pros

    The company's growth will only continue, so there's always new opportunity being presented if one takes the initiative.

    Cons

    Despite the progressive veneer, its structure is still 20th Century American corporation, with all the trappings and barriers that includes. A lot of silo-ing in the leadership chain.

    Pros

    Better than min wage. Got to meet a lot of different people

    Cons

    Hours were cut every month, lower than average technician pay, no coverage for sick time or in the pharmacy on a regular day. Technicians who were rude made the rules because management did not do their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better than dirt. Very short handed environment that gets very hostile.
