Disapproves of CEO

Pros

There are not many good reasons to work here. If you like auto parts and high pressure sales environments, then this is the place for you. Employees do receive a discount, and you will be paid for the time you work.

Cons

There is no upper managerial support towards employees. Managers at the store level are not empowered to make changes or enforce discipline. The focus here is on micro management from the district level. Expect to be given unrealistic sales goals and to see people who have no managerial experience or ability become your peers or supervisors. Promotions are given on a whim and are put into effect by district managers who will never actually witness your performance first hand.

Advice to Management

Quit throwing your front line employees under the bus.

    Pros

    I worked with good people and that is what made things worthwhile. They also worked well with my schedule.

    Cons

    Management micromanages what happens without allowing your own innovation. Upper management treats you like children.

    Advice to Management

    The corporate answers do not work well for all branches of the company. Its the people that make all the difference in this business so be willing to pay for good people.


  2. "Good place to start or continue your car knowledge"

    Pros

    Very flexible hours, usually fast paced and you really have a chance to learn a lot even if you are ASE certified, if you are not ASE certified this is a very good place to learn and possibly become ASE certified

    Cons

    Anyone can work here.... meaning, a 16 year old kid who thinks putting a turbo on a geo metro is a muscle car... if you shop here be careful who you are talking to, if they are in their young 20's or younger you can almost never take any in depth advice from them
