    Can be shady at times

    Pros

    Decent discounts, depending on shop location, if manager is okay with it, will let you work on your own car. Not bad place for a first time mechanic.

    Cons

    Depending on shop location, management can be shady. Where I was working, lots of OSHA violations shown but never fixed. If you get the bad side of the company, they may do whatever it may takes to cut down on the labor hours you can flag.

    Good pay, great benefits, no social life

    Feb 21, 2022 - Store Manager in Fort Myers, FL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Awesome pay structure, especially as you climb the ladder. Lots of teammate perks, including employee discount, full and excellent benefits, PTO, and technically a flexible schedule. As long as upper management isn't on your back, the atmosphere is what you make it in the store.

    Cons

    Too much pressure on management. Significant gap between corporate dream and field reality. No sense of "self" and care of the person, it's just a numbers game. Too many things for one person to manage (even upper management, in mentoring, offers that it's too much for one person and you just have to get used to the idea that you're always behind somewhere). Expected to be on call during all business hours, even on vacation, even if you have someone else who was appointed to run your store or area in the meantime. Upper management has an "open door policy" but not really; if you contact anyone outside of your direct supervisor you either get no answer or get slapped on the hand for reaching out. Store managers are expected to work a minimum of 55 hours per week.
