Friendly staff
Assistant Manager/Technician (Former Employee), Northridge, CADecember 4, 2013
Pros: positive, fun environment
Cons: no healthcare
I thouroughly enjoyed working at Brake Masters for the limited amount of time I was there. I learned many new skills and refined other skills in the area of vehicle maintenance and repair. My supervisor, Ben, was always ready to answer any questions I had as well as my co-workers. The hardest part of the job was when there was a slow spot in the day – more... with little to no customers. The most enjoyable part of the day was being able to assist a customer with a troubling mechanical issue and having the ability to be the solution. It is quite unfortunate that the company was unable to keep me on due to financial issues on their side, I feel as if I could have continued working with this company for many, many years to come. – less

Do NOT work for this company!
Ex employee (Former Employee), corporate officeOctober 27, 2013
Pros: only pro, pay was decent
Cons: everything else aside from pay
Horrible business to work for! I wasted my time and energy working for a company that DOES NOT value their employees! Management makes their subordinents feel like slave drivers. It is definitely a thankless job! Management does not care about their employees, they only care if the work is completed. The office environment is toxic. There is a huge – more... negitive cloud that reigns over the building and can be sensed the moment you get there. The main motto of all office staff is "fake it until you make it" and let me tell you, EVERYONE is fake! It is horrible when upper management is ridiculously rude to everyone they don't like and super friendly and cheerful to people they do like. I will NEVER again work for a manager that answers the phone with "what" and then promptly slams the phone down without saying bye or thank you for the information that was told to them.

Health benefits are a joke. All office employees are fake and rude. Company is cheap. Owners walk around and demand things of people and are rude while doing it. Plus they aren't friendly at all. No job advancement whatsoever. Management expects you to work your butt off for nothing in return. They expect you to put your job first over your own family and health again for nothing in return. Again just an overall HORRIBLE company to work for!! – less

Stagnant work enviroment
asst manager/ (Current Employee), PhoenixSeptember 28, 2013
Pros: if you can find a decent staffed store with decent people you might do good
Cons: poor area management
Although the company tries to maintain a customer service above all policy, the company focuses on silly business policy acronyms and maintaining a profit ratio instead of actually allowing people to actually grow. Area management confused and not interested in actually managing. Any concerns are not addressed . There are a lot of politics that interfere – more... with growth and forward progress for the individuals and and whole company. 90% Of the techs are beyond weak and either don't look at the vehicles properly or look too much. There are a few locations that try to run a class act, otherwise it is hit or miss. – less

Great place for family values
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee), Scottsdale, AZSeptember 11, 2012
Pros: good working enviroment
Cons: poor management training as well as lack of good tecs being hired.
Good customer base as well as productivity. Upper Management needed more training on improving bottom line dollars with creative ideas instead of guessing about what to try next.

Not really a bad place to work,but with no drug testing for new hires,u dont know who ur working next to.Techs lack tools and skills,thats why one of the reasons I moved on,shops have outdated equipment,so not really a good place to work for unless u are an illegal,great place for them,worked next to a few of them.
