    I have been working at Midas full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have been with the Katz Midas group for over 30 years - In that time they have developed into a company that is completely focused on it's people - and that includes doing right by their customers. I hired as an entry technician and with support, training and guidence from the family owners I am now a muti shop DM. The family atmosphare and completly open door policey for communication is something I have come to appreciate. I have interviewed many potential employees and I know from these interviews that Midas truely is a great company to work for.

    Cons

    The cons are what you them. You can not thrive in this team company if you want to be loner. You don't need to love everyone of your coworkers but you have to work towards the same goal as all employees which is to do quality repairs and make every customer feel like part of the Midas family

    Advice to Management

    continue to keep your people your first priority - both employee and customer

    I have been working at Midas full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I worked for Midas for almost 3 years and I left and worked at the competition for around three years and came back to Midas recently. I came back to a company that I should have never left. Midas treats all employees as family members. Midas offers great salary opportunities and many benefits. I definitely suggest anyone looking for a career in the automotive repair industry to apply with our company

    Cons

    There are no cons. Employees have good works hours that are conducive to family life. We receive good salaries and excellent health benefits.

    I worked at Midas full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Management was professional, but spoke to me realistically, didn't appear to beat around the bush, steady supply of work, always busy.

    Cons

    Management started lying about when I was supposed to get my 30 day review and a raise, left after 60 days of being promised a 30 day review and a raise. Management began making mountains out of mole hills. My child support was being deducted from my paycheck, but wasn't being distributed to child support. Was forced to buy cleaning products to keep the shop clean out of my own pocket.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the employees who make you money like the money you covet. If they keep the shop clean, jump when you say jump, and do their best with everything, take the time to train them. Don't jerk them around. If they make a mistake, correct them, mentor them, don't treat them as if they're disposable.

    I worked at Midas full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None this place was awful and full of lies even the manager was disgusted with the owner and felt bad for us techs not making any money ever.

    Cons

    None they make it nearly impossible to make flat rate. They hook you buy saying your going to be paid a high wage flat rate and $10 contractual but guess what you will never make flat rate

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to get good techs to work for your scam of a company. I wasted three months of my life when I know I should have went to a dealership even though they offered less money at least there was work. This place literally had days with one car to be worked on and there was 5 techs.
