Pros: great owners
Cons: long travel
Nice environment long hours and pay was not as I was used to. Worked every weekend. Loyalty was a plus. Moved on due to new job being closer to home and more pay.

Laid back shop environment
Shop Foreman/Lead Technician (Current Employee), Bloomingdale, ILMay 13, 2015
Pros: Friendly shop environment
Cons: No benefits, no time off, very long work week.
As is typical of any automotive repair garage, the overall atmosphere is fairly laid back. I personally worked over 70 hours a week, 6 days a week, and much of my tenure there was spent as the only employee, which placed all work tasks on my shoulders. I was also never offered any benefits.

Challenging
Store Manager/Sales Manager (Current Employee), Fair Lawn, NJFebruary 26, 2015
Pros: flexible work schedule
Cons: no health benefits, 401k and not enough staff .
The job overall is second nature to me and is what i am use to and familiar with . I say the job is challenging because there is no steady work flow . The buisness it's self is a constant roller coaster some weeks are more busy than others . I love the challenge and love when I accomplish meeting my own personal goals when I am able to speak with customers and enlighten them with my knowledge of vehicles . I love to build healthy relationships with the customers and meet their needs of having someone trust worthy to service their vehile .
I have learned to be more paitent when it comes to running a buisness . I fully understand it's not easy to build a buisness from scratch . I have worked here for five months and I have built many strong trust relationships with customers concerning their vehicle needs . The hardest part of the job is being paitent with customers walking in the door . The most enjoyable part of the job is when customers do walk in the door and I am able to greet them and make them feel welcome in the facility .

The owners are the most wonderful people one can ask for
Lead Technician (Current Employee), Modesto, CASeptember 23, 2014
Despite having the most wonderful, compassionate, and professional owners (whom unfortunately, do not live in Modesto to oversee the business), this location needs a more professional team. Based on my previous jobs and the work ethics, I need to move to a different shop.

overwork, under pay
Automotive Technician (Current Employee), Glendale, AZAugust 21, 2013
Cons: lots
This company hires everybody flat rate so that they can work you 50-65 hours a week and only pay you for between 30-40 hours a week. Management doesn't care about the employees, they only care about themselves and getting bigger bonuses. Over all a bad place to work.

Busy garage with little to no hostility.
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee), Spring Hill, FLJuly 3, 2013
Pros: hired with no degree
Cons: couldn't get far without a degree
I found that my time in Meineke, may have been short but was enjoyable as the owner was an understanding man and rarely caused any trouble. The same could be said about the other mechanics. They were all very willing to help me learn the trade that I was working in. They were all surprised at how fast I learned and how quickly I had my work finished when they took atleast twice as long as I did. The hardest part of the job was late in the day when all the work that has been done gets to you and you begin to notice the aches and pains you've developed through out the day.
