Center Manager (Former Employee) –  Arlington ,TexasJuly 28, 2015
Write up work orders with appropriate prices for both parts and labor. Manage over under report constantly chasing credits form vendors. Manage payroll and scheduling for technicians employed at the center. I was satisfied helping out the customer and seeing satisfaction when they leave. Hardest part was dealing with certain customers and problems but the most rewarding was when I found a solution where we were both happy and the problem was resolved.

Numbers oriented, no concern for personal life outside of work
Center Manager (Current Employee) –  TexasOctober 16, 2014
Company was recently purchased. Family atmosphere is gone, Brothers in the business are now using everyone to step on to try and look good. Upper management is unconcerned about managers who work 70 plus hours a week and heaven help you if you want to take any kind of community education or college classes. Weekend for managers are required. You might get 1 Sunday a month off to be with family.
Cons
how long do you have?

Too many bosses
Store Manager (Former Employee) –  Bradenton,FLSeptember 8, 2014
All I can say is that it is a good thing the company sold. Worked a 6 day week from 7am - 6pm and never any time off. Pay was horrible and they kept changing it over the yrs. Never enough staff members to help and always left it up to the Center Manager to advertise and hire, but never wanted to pay.

Over worked and under paid
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJuly 30, 2014
Upper management continues to yell if quotas are not made. Company is only concerned with money. Lots of greed within this company. Excessively charging people for repairs they probably don't need. Not concerned about family time or family issues. Meaning no quality time off. Actually, no days off, especially the weekends. Work excessive amount of hours for little pay. No perks what so ever. No lunch time. Health insurance is junk. When the company was taken over, it was worst. Go find a job some where else.
Pros
job
Cons
everything else
