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

    Pros

    Store runs itself. Customer base is great.

    Cons

    Owner is flakey. He is swayed easily and isn’t forth coming. I wouldn’t say he lies but he dances around the truth.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key. Honest open communication.

    Cons

    Be empathetic and understanding to techs lives

    Pros

    2 wks vacation (5yr employee), personal days accrue at a rate of 1/2 day per month (up to 6 per yr), 5 paid sick days, paid major holidays. Acceptable benefits, this will differ depending which store you work at since Midas is a franchise company (with corporate support)

    Cons

    Depending who you work for may not receive paid sick or personal days. Working on your own vehicle can be challenging. No short/long term disability offered (again may differ store to store)

    Advice to Management

    Offer short/long term disability plan. Being a mechanic can be hard on your body and people with families to support could suffer tremendously if injured due to work related conditions.

    Pros

    Decent pay, off most holidays

    Sometimes 6 day work weeks for no extra pay, they expect you to sell things customers do not need

    They should not require extra days worked without extra pay, they should provide better training

    Pros

    Large company that has many connections in the automotive industry to provide support and direction. Large base of the support staff to aid with any problems

    Cons

    Service industry comes with long hours, but that's part of the game. Hard to find good technicians in this day and age

    Advice to Management

    Stay positive

    I worked at Midas full-time

    Pros

    None really, it very much sucks.

    Cons

    Unprofessional environment. Unless you like broisms and have no life or family, then maybe you'll like it. Got fired after one month with very little training. Management is terrible and doesn't take responsibility for money loss, blames others when they are bad managers. Everyone has terrible attitudes. Absolute waste of time. Wouldn't even take an interview, very little job security. I'm supporting a family and was axed for very little reason besides cliches. They just weren't making money and didn't have enough to keep me hired, plain and simple. Left a secure job for this crap. Seriously, you've been warned, do not work here. Also they are super shady and make up all kinds of reasons to charge more, meanwhile most of the mechanics working there have little experience. I wouldn't trust my car with them. Also, no benefits for full time!

    Advice to Management

    It's too broken.
