    Pros

    If you can't get a good job this will do until you can find something better, you will get a pay check but it will cost you.

    Cons

    60+ hours per week for $600/week salary. Only 1 day off per week EVER, even during holiday weeks, closed holiday is your only day off, RIDICULOUS. if you're unethical and greedy with no morals you can succeed and make $$$. If you're an honest human being this won't be the place for you. Even if you perform they'll move you around and you could lose all the momentum you've worked hard for and then lose your bonus potential and get demoted. If you can't get anything else this will do but if you have any and I mean any other opportunity take it. If I could rate less than 1 star I would.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying and grow a conscience. Say what you mean and mean what you say. Try to treat good people/employees with some dignity and respect.

    Pros

    I guess if this is a benefit (as I can think of no other) The stores close at six o'clock every day except Sunday ( 5pm )

    Cons

    Uses deceptive practices to turn a profit. Instructs all managers to sell what ever they can irregardless if part or service is needed, also insists most parts have a minimum 200-300 percent markup.

    Advice to Management

    none

    Pros

    Beats flipping burgers but at least with flipping burgers you get benefits and 2 days off per week

    Cons

    Upper management has less than zero connection to management on a store level. Pay was ok but not worth working 5.5 days a week and sometimes not even getting that half a day as required. All members of management are salary hired at approx $600 per week which equals about $9.91 per hour. Not typical management pay and no paid holidays off.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink your entire business model. Starting with the employee experience. Stop treating employees as if they are easily replaceable even if they are. The marketing the company does is atrocious at best and seems to work on the little things with less meaning vs. working on the large simple things like online traffi.

    Pros

    Store hours are not bad. All close at 6pm.

    Cons

    Managers ,especially upper management have little to no auto repair experience too many hours for amount paid. no paid holidays. Most stores do not do enough business to bonus much.

    Advice to Management

    Would only fall on deaf ears. If you have been in one their meetings you would understand.

    I have been working at Brake Check full-time

    Pros

    The employees. I like this job.

    Cons

    This is my 2nd time at a store. Worked in Austin for half a yr but got fed up with how everything was being ran...the whole latter!!! I told myself not to ever come back but I did. Only thing I ask for is a decent sized break room, some hours for family time (jus stay closed Sundays), more pay; especially if you have your OWN tools and have knowlege of the business

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the guys that keep your families mouths fed, everything you have is because of US .... it isn't always about you all....maybe if you all acted like mature adults of this civilization, than we all would have a better lifestyle....quit being too demanding of things. And lastly, NOTHING EVER GOES AS PLANNED, unless you have done the work personally, than I'll listen to your advice. Other than that...let me work my magic.
