    Pros

    When your team is in sync and the right people are in place it’s great. DM let’s you decide who is on your team and build for success.

    Cons

    Dept in charge of recruiting and finding new employees can do more to find quality associates.

    Advice to Management

    It is tough these days to find quality like minded business professionals in the automotive industry to fill the needs of all their stores. Starting from scratch with most new hires.... it’s a challenge to put together a solid team. Must always be training and recruiting.

    Automotive Technician Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Pep Boys (Rochester, NY) in September 2019.

    Interview

    You get a phone call from a recruiter and then if they interested in you they put you in contact with the store manager. The Manager calls you and lies to you about doing a 1 on 1 interview but never calls you back.
