    Pros

    Decent pay, off most holidays

    Cons

    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

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

    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.

    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
