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

    Pros

    Great place to get started as an Automotive Technician. The more experienced techs were very helpful when time allotted.

    Cons

    High turnover leaves the remaining employees in a very stressful and busy environment.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the needs of the most experienced Techs.

    Pros

    Great stepping stone for those looking to enter into the world of automotive repair without the formal training cost.

    Due to structure, work is unevenly disbursed making it difficult for new hires to meet productivity quotas.

    I worked at VIP full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and fair benefits. Very good training opportunities but need to be done before product release. Decent insurance benefits.

    Cons

    No balance for life as a manager ... 50hr work week is a joke ... Takes 55-60 to complete tasks to operate

    Advice to Management

    Upper management is not always truthful ... Believe in your long-time employees.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Employee discount, no other pros

    Cons

    Horrible management. Unprofessional atmosphere with extreme micromanagement. Wages were very low as a manager. The store manager had no college education and I have a bachelors degree. Raises were virtually non existent. No profit sharing or bonus. No value of education. High pressure for sales yet no compensation or commission. I quit and went to work for a large corporation where starting pay for an entry level job was more than they paid me as an asst manager.

    Advice to Management

    This company needs a complete overhaul. The HR dept is virtually non existent. Store managers can be extremely unprofessional ie. swearing, aggressive behavior

    Pros

    Alright benefit package. "Paid Time off" equal to most other companys. Adjustable Hours (unless on Salary pay Role) Very good communication from Store to Store. Ability to get parts a.s.a.p. Employee part discount. (for the most part)

    Cons

    Major lack of promotions, lack of trust towards employees. Spending company money in wrong places (i.e banners, signs, and balloons, when not one employee gets any sort of positive wage adjustment without any sort of apology). Little to none adequate in store training. Employees obligated to perform roles and positions far outside of their field (i.e mechanics washing shelves). little or no teamwork. Very hypocritical (Managers are told "run the store the way they want" when all decisions must be aproved by upper management and their management).Outragous price mark up percentage.

    Advice to Management

    Put the people first. Employ more competent employees. Be smater about where the money goes. Listen to employees more. Also listen to customers more. Cater to "the little guy" more. Stop bouncing benefit policies from company to company.
