great to start an automotive career
Lead Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Pinole, CANovember 7, 2018
most employees were in and out within a year or 2. Lots of young guys trying to get into the automotive industry. All the work that comes in seems like it was supposed to be done yesterday. advisers will bring in more work than what the staff can handle because management always had to hit their numbers.
Pros
discounts on tires
Cons
cant work on your own car

Project Manager - Onsite Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Nashville, TNOctober 17, 2018
I worked here as a contractor thru my employer, Fujitsu America Inc as Project Delivery Manager. Client also had their own highly skilled IT team members and we worked in harmony. I was provided with their standards and had freedom to suggest / recommend better options. I was respected appropriately and heard most often. Good place to work.

Good if you like it
Full Service Mechanic (Former Employee) –  TXOctober 9, 2018
Hours to long for any sensible person 10 plus everyday you work. You will not like the hours to long for anyone to enjoy life outside of work. There is money to be made but no time to spend it.

money

It’s a place you can advance quickly to make more money. Supervisors are usually fair and down to earth. You have to be able to multitask and work with a lil heat.
Pros

Cons
The swing shifts

Long, long, long hours
Retail Sales Advisor (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FLAugust 30, 2018
If working in a store, prepare to stand for 12 hours. There is pressure from the highest level of the company to sell the company credit card, and a large portion of your performance review and advancement in the company will be based on how many people you get to apply for one.
Pros
Good money for what you do, get to meet many people
Cons
string of 12 hour days, no breaks, standing the entire time you're there, pressure to sell

To much micro management
Facility Engineer (Current Employee) –  Des Moines, IAAugust 5, 2018
The general workplace culture at the plant is not what plant management says it is. Example is if you request training to help you gain knowledge for your advancement goals you are faced with budget constraints, travel restriction or maybe next year to point of you stop asking.

Productive worlplace
Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLJuly 25, 2018
Productive work place but conditions and hours are harsh. Management is terrible. Communication is terrible and they only care about their product. PTO is only available after a year until then you have to submit slips for days off and they have to be approved by manager but once approved they try to make u feel guilt.
Pros
If u like a lot hours
Cons
Work conditions vary due to temperature outside.

Great Place to Work
Purchasing Clerk (Former Employee) –  Mayodan, NCJuly 23, 2018
Wonderful atmosphere and great coworkers. Team work is a must. I learned most of the positions in the Finance department. Administrative, Billing, Purchasing, Accounts Payable. Worked mostly independently, given the ability to chose daily task to complete as long as they were within their deadline. Work as a team, need good team building skills.
Pros
Great health Care and 401K benefits

DISTRICT MANAGER TRAINEE (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORJuly 22, 2018
It's a job not a career. You will wake up early and work on cars through-out the day. Your boss will usually call you up and check on how many tires and life time alignments you sold.
Pros
Lots of work to do
Cons
You will mostly work all day without a lunch or break.
