    Pros

    Low standards of conduct on the job

    I have been working at Midas full-time

    Pros

    I am blessed to have a owner who stands behind me and his other managers. He allows me to manage the store as it was my own with total trust. I have a good group of employees who really take great pride in there work.

    Cons

    Long hours to work everyday. Must skip lunch some days due to being so busy. Work weekends.

    Advice to Management

    I am paid on the hire of the pay scale from what I can tell and it is still much lower than the competition. I have been approached and offered quite bit more elsewhere. I have stayed because the owner is great but its starting to dawn on me that its not worth the money when you calculate my hours worked. I am on phone even on days off.

    I worked at Midas full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is none work here for over a year move up to assistant manager ad made the same the General services lube technician made.

    Cons

    Work life balance 50 + he a week. Not treated like a human. No benefits. You get vacation but it's .8 an hour per 35 hr worked so it take two years to get one week or 40hr vacation. They expect the techs to buy a scan tool and other tools you think a muffler and brakes shop should have, an example a pressure bleeder, scan tool, and any specialty tools

    Advice to Management

    Treat and pay the techs like they should be and you'd keep techs and probably customers too.

    since being acquired by TBC the culture appears to have changed quite a bit

    stay focused on emerging vehicle technologies

    Pros

    Midas was one of my favorite places to work. The camaraderie between employees was great. I had good hours as well. The people I worked with became fast friends that I still have to this day.

    Cons

    The pay scale was pretty meager here at Midas and the benefits were pretty bad too. And many times the expected rate of sales was not met because they were set relatively high for such a poor area that the shop was located.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure employees are paid what they are worth not what you deem appropriate, and I would suggest getting better health and retirement benefits for your employees because being a mechanic is extremely hard work and can be dangerous and without good benefits it could cost the employee their livelihood.
