    I worked at Midas full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    good shop equipment for tires and exhaust, decent stock of parts on hand. online training and on-site training. Good group of guys to work with at my shop.

    Cons

    Poor diagnostic shop tool inventory, only OTC genysis with just obdii cable. store went from corporate to franchise without even district manager awareness, several drastic changes followed. When TBC acquired, cut holidays including the 4th of July.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't monopolize employee personal time by taking away holidays.

    Pros

    The Midas brand is growing stronger and it's getting more support from corporate. It's advertising and marketing promotions are beginning to deliver results.

    Cons

    Long hours and you usually have a number of personnel annoyances every day. It's tough to build a loyal crew but when you do things can really start clicking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    I loved that family came first as long as you had your work done. You were trusted, and oppurtunity for advancements was always presented

    Cons

    like any places, favoritsm and rumors were a great time pass for people. I disliked that people couldn't grow out of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always support your employees and in return they will always be there for you.

    I worked at Midas full-time

    Pros

    Some of co-workers are fun to work with/be around. You have 2 days off a week, sundays are a mandatory day off for everyone. Get to choose what day you wanted off when it came to Christmas and new years.

    Cons

    The GM is a total butt who cares about no one or nothing but himself! Doesn't care about any type of reason for anything that might happen. Its ALWAYS your fault. The owner never takes control of ANY situation at all when something comes up, the GM always jumps in the middle even if he wasn't part of it from the beginning. Corporate constantly tells the owner that NO ONE likes, gets along or feels comfortable around the GM and he still does nothing at all about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GET RID OF THE GM AND EVERYTHING WILL BE MUCH BETTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
