    During the summer it is very hot, and winter very cold. Working on cars can get frustrating.

    Continue to hire motivated, understanding managers.

    Pros

    They promote from within, excellent trainers, and good product.

    Cons

    Passive aggressive Area Supervisors. They did away with pre-employment drug screens. The quality of their new technicians dropped dramatically as a result. Employee turn over is very high as well.

    Pay more

    Pros

    Getting to see customers happy with you because of your honest with them, was priceless

    Cons

    The Owner (Jon Methven) was an rude, and made us turn down service to customers who weren't due for service yet. (ie, if someone had gone 4,000 miles on oil that was guaranteed to last 15,000 Miles (Castrol Edge Extended Performance) he told us to not tell the customers of that.

    Be honest to customers, that is why they love us.
