Challenging and fun work environment
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Sacramento, CAMay 26, 2015
You stay busy, building relationships with clients and managing front shop and back shop. I learned a lot about cars. I was fortunate to have a great team of co workers. The hardest part of the job is to help a customer that is not happy their car isn't working and assure them we can fix it at a price point and time line. The enjoyable part of the job was helping people fix their car so they can carry on with life.

Must be on your game
Technician/Mechanic (Former Employee), Merididan, MSApril 29, 2015
Pros: Training
Cons: Getting paid flag hours on an antiquated scale
Fast paced and competitive with co-workers. Must be on top of your mechanical game in order to make good money. A typical day involves anything from oil changes to brake jobs and tire changes of course.

Flag hours consist of getting paid a percentage of the labor cost on the work you do. Pay does not reflect realistic rates and was set up sometime ago, in the 70's or 80's.

Hardest part of the job is strong-arming monster tires off of vehicles.

General Mechanic (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZFebruary 25, 2015
Pros: weekly tool truck visits
Cons: good flag hours depend on season and weather.
Not a bad Company to work for, but its not for somebody that has a family and a house and bills to pay. The compensation is not up to par, they like to nickel and dime your paychecks.

District Management is the worse
General Manager (Former Employee), Denver,COFebruary 15, 2015
Pros: company is fine
Cons: need different leadership(district staff)
I don't know how a person can be promoted to ADM when they are incompetent, but it happens. This is the Denver district and it has turned to S%^$. A employee was promoted to ADM, because he was liked by the DM. That was a big mistake!!!!! He became a bear, screaming and yelling and getting nothig accomplished. All that happened was the district went backwards. In his time as ADM, I think 5-10 managers quit, or transfered. Now he was demoted and is a store manager. The only thing this guy could do was opem credit cards, and give everything away free to the customers. If he reads this I think he will know whom I am talking about.
