    Pros

    Multiple responsibilities allow for a greater range of open doors for you to stick your foot in through so to speak.

    Cons

    Low-pay, not much business. There was plenty of time for sitting around and watching movies or playing on the Internet.

    Advice to Management

    Work on advancement of the employees, practice better marketing to attract and help get more business in the door for technicians.

  6. Fun meeting employees and working on car

    Pros

    probably the most honest and professional of this type of business towards the customer, did not harass employees to sell, sell, sell

    Cons

    six full days a week, with a fairly low pay scale, with very little room for internal promotion, also worked most holidays without any additional pay

    Advice to Management

    give the employees some incentive pay for holidays and sundays, keep the bays above freezing at night in the winter because it takes too long to warm up, up the pay scale for management
