    Pros

    Had a great time working here. The job was simple and I miss working with the boys. I'd go back if things go south at my newer place.

    Cons

    Sometimes some customers like coming in at the last minute on the dot. Could also craft schedules a bit better (more consistent)

    They try to create a "Good" culture which made it a really awful culture

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Easy to get into. Some of the people are cool. Easy to move up(kinda).

    Cons

    I was an employee for 6 years because I had nothing better to do with my life so this is the most honest I could be. I am not a disgruntled former employee, we parted way on good terms because I found a better job. They try to create this everything is awesome and I'm so happy to be her culture that it is actually really toxic. The safety precautions are literally insane! You will literally get written up for not holding hand rails with both hands while walking down the stairs. And if you think that you will get away with it, you won't because they watch you on camera all day remotely. If this is your first job because you need something or just to see if getting into cars is something you want to get into then go for it. But heed my warning, DO NOT allow yourself to get stuck there longer than a year. Also they are horrible at accepting time off, no incentives but they push you to sell, short staffed all the time and extremely busy 95% of the year.

    Solid Training

    Pros

    Solid training, anyone can start regardless of prior automotive background. Flexible management Lax environment Easygoing

    Cons

    Anyone can be hired regardless of prior automatics background. The person working under the car is always the one working the hardest and breaking a sweat. Each assigned role does not require the same level of effort. Getting splashed in oil.

    Pros

    Very flexible schedule to work with my school schedule Above average pay for the area

    Cons

    Very hot in the summers and cold in winters Depending on your manager your store can push you to sell additional services You don't need car experience to work here, which may be nice for some but can also cause problems without proper etiquette Other than advancing positions in the service center, it's hard to navigate a career with the corporation as they only push being promoted in the service center and no other roles within the company.

    all rules are to be followed to the T if you want to keep your job if you work in the CSR position (which you most likely will) you are expected to keep you sales numbers up at all times, no slack will be given once you're trained.
