Easy to follow visionary leadership.
Order Processing and Receiving Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Carson City, NVOctober 5, 2017
Typical day at work involved managing warehouse floor process across two buildings and leading / developing associate based continuous improvement teams. Continued developing my lean process improvement skills. Workplace culture was an emerging team based system. Hardest part of the job was navigating the human element of change... also the most enjoyable... the proverbial double edged sword.
Pros
Awesome leadership and people.
Cons
None that stand out.

Job was good enough to pay the bills, however I did not see myself working there long term.
Picker/Packer (Former Employee) –  Crystal Lake, ILOctober 5, 2017
The job is fine as a temporary job, but not ideal for a good future/career. I met nice workers that were easy to talk to, and willing to lend a helping hand if needed. The building was in unclean conditions, and the order system was out of date. Half the orders that were handed out to employees to complete were already done.
Pros
Easy work, and nice people
Cons
Employees slacked, building cleanliness was poor, and there were no benefits

You own your own business. You get out of it what you out into it. Franchise model. Responsible for your own costs of business and insurance. Can be very rewarding.

Great Job but slanted towards corporate
Owner/Operator (Current Employee) –  Huntsville, ALAugust 21, 2017
Changes to the process have made the job more slanted towards favoring corporate. Franchise owners are suffering due to their return policy. This makes maintaining a healthy business hard.

Amazing company
Sales Representative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Hesperia, CAAugust 21, 2017
Just to clarify I worked for a franchisee not the corporation. My particular franchisee just had gotten comfortable and stop pushing. The corporation on the other hand is the number company in automotive tools and has the title for a reason. A chance with the corporation means a chance with a happy, meaningful career with loads of potential for climbing the corporate ladder.

Customer (Former Employee) –  Crystal Lake, ILAugust 14, 2017
Snap On was a great company with very nice benefits. They offered contests and prizes and also they would randomly give away item. They would have auctions for their "scratch and dent" tool storage, so you could get some really great deals!

Outstanding company.
Franchise Owner (Former Employee) –  Fresno, CAAugust 11, 2017
A great company with an outstanding reputation. A recognized leader in tools and equipment in the automotive industry. Being a franchise owner is an extremely time consuming proposition, which can take a heavy toll on family and relationships. Good opportunity to buy company stock and contribute to a SEP IRA.

Diagnostics Sales Developer (Current Employee) –  Lakewood, CAAugust 9, 2017
Reasons are in the comments. Compensation does not align with hours that are expected of you. Depending where you are, upward mobility is very limited.
Pros
Fun culture
Cons
Compensation does not align with hours expected to put in.

Could be a better place
Form/weld (Current Employee) –  Algona, IAJuly 27, 2017
When I first started working here I liked it. Then everything start to change and I started to realize that I didn't want to work there anymore. The amount or people that can get away with certain things is redickulouse. The hours kinda suck and you have to personal life when you work here unless you can get on first shift. They say it's a team work place but it doesn't really run that way. This place is also nothing but a drama filled rumor mill.
Pros
The pay and raises
Cons
Short breaks, not a team work place, alot of drama
