Pros: vendor incentives, commission, employee benefits, mechanics
Cons: support, training
The hours are long. However, depending on your ability and performance, it can be rewarding or tense. Management compensation is very good. Manager benefits include salary + commission. Additionally all employees are offered reasonably priced health insurance, long term disability and incentive awards. Depending on your district manager, support can range from very good to non existing.
Company supplies current and updated diagnostic tools, though during my employment, I found that trouble shooting support seriously lacking and that I had to take out my own subscription to Alldata to get up-to-date trouble shooting advice. This may have improved since leaving the company 3 yrs ago.
Additionally, continual and on going training was seriously lacking. Again, this may have improved. Also, one other point about training,
new manager training should be conducted at time of hire followed by
mentor training, and then shop management. At the time of my hiring and to my termination, I found the reverse to be true ( as far as my district was concerned,) Again this may have been because of the fault at the regional and/or district level(s) or at corporate.
Monro has tie ins with vendor incentive and promotion programs that can be rewarding to both the manager and mechanics.
For the most part, I enjoyed my time with Monro. I, however, encourage Monro to test suggestions from its managers and/or mechanics. Suggestions and ideas that I implemented in my shop were shot down or told to remove only to be adopted by corporate a few months later. I am not sure that they were nixed by the district manager or from corporate.
