    Current Employee - Store Manager in Winston-Salem, NC
    Current Employee - Store Manager in Winston-Salem, NC

    Pros

    Very strong secure company with a long past in retail auto repair and tires. Elite Store Managers have great income potential. Very good at proactively adapting to change. They have the best benefits in the auto repair field and the pay structure motivates building a very profitable store.

    Cons

    Depending on your zone/district staff they can limit your advancement regardless of your relantionship with them. In low population areas with low to mid performing store locations your personal job performance doesnt matter the only results they care about is how well the store is doing. Some district/zone staff try to mirco manage you and your location. At the store level some district/zones make it very hard for you to access current openings to advance throughout the company. They would prefer the salaried retail managers work more hours and do not promote a good balance of work and home life.

    Advice to Management

    Police your non management employees pay better. You shouldnt have a new hourly employee hired in at a higher pay than your well producing hourly employees. If your executive management plan is to promote within make it easier for your employees to access those openings.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Good Dental, Optical, and Health benefits.
    They pay for your ASE tests.

    Cons

    Long 50+ hour weeks
    As a flag rate tech your not making as much as you think you are.
    Pay/ getting jobs based on how well you can manipulate the politics.
    Poor communication and treatment of lower personnel.
    Lunch brakes are almost unheard of.

    Advice to Management

    Worry a little less about your bonus and more about the well fare of your employees. Store managers and up see great profits from the company, below that your lucky to break even for the week.
