During my tenure with Bridgestone I was able to raise relatively quick through the ranks and become a service manager in under a year. They will promote you if they see talent and ability. The downside is that they will try and keep your wages the same if you don't speak up. Management styles will depend on the area manager. I had the ability to work in two separate areas and the styles they had were night and day. Be prepared to have action plans in place and have answers for your results. This is a great company to work for but you have to have the right leadership in place for it to feel as such. Stores are usually staffed with a manager, service manager and one, if you're lucky, two service advisers.
