Typically slow, not much excitement going on. I learned a lot, I was sent to many training and gained a lot of experience in automotive business. Overall not a bad place to work, but this location needs more business and advertisement.

Senior managers are a joke, they want you to pay for you to work on your own car. A serious cleansing from the CEO on down is needed. There is no educating new or veteran tech. Youtube will be your best teacher.

Automotive Technician (Current Employee) – Dover, DE – May 26, 2017
Money hungry that is all. You work underpaid not enough hours not appreciate it. I am not happy unsafe conditions people breathing people walking all over your back constantly hounding you to find things wrong with the car.
General Service Technician (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – May 23, 2017
It is a good job for a mechanic because you work by yourself a lot plus you can get commission if you make a sale. If the opportunity arises then you can sell tires you will get a commission for that sale.
General Service Technician (Former Employee) – Marketplace Drive, Henrietta NY – May 19, 2017
If you're thinking about applying here, IT ISN'T WORTH IT. The pay is terrible along with the working conditions and management. Both of the managers think they know a thing or two about cars, but they sincerely don't. Was really irked that we had to follow work orders down to the fine print on the document and we couldn't challenge them if it was incorrect or unethical.
Tried to politely communicate with the manager as befitting a professional tech, but it didn't click with him to do the same back. They also fire techs for questionable reasons, which in reality came down to the fact that they hated techs being honest with customers about repairs. This place needs to shut down.
The master technicians were the only decent people at the facitlity.
Poor management, poor pay, lack of communication and professionalism with upper management.
Store Manager of Parts (Former Employee) – Lawrenceville, GA – May 18, 2017
There is room for advancement as long as upper management likes you. It took me many years to move from cashier to store manager so it takes a long time for some they prefer to higher from outside rather than promote from with in. With new buy out from last year benefits are now awful. With new medical benefits you have to pay out of pocket till each person on the plan reaches their own deductible. Dental and vision are good. PTO is generous and is part of why I stayed so long. Pay is low to start but gets better if you move into management.
PIR Rep Customer service sales (Current Employee) – Tampa, FL – May 11, 2017
a typical day here is not bad at all. The more knowledge you have about cars the better because it is important to make sure the customer has everything they will need for the job they are working on. It's a friendly work environment. Customer base is great. Ive learned a lot about cars and how they run. Hardest part of the job is having a schedule that changes on a weekly basis. Sometimes you are opening and sometimes you are closing.
hour lunch and Pto earning potential
healthcare is expensive, management is poor, mostly male run industry
