Employees dislike working there
Texhnician (Former Employee) –  Edmond, OKAugust 6, 2019
They say they take care of their employees, but they don't. All they care about is the bottom dollar. If you want to advance you have to be able to suck up to managment

Best company in industry, not as competitive as other opportunities for those with professional education
Store Manager (Current Employee) –  Wichita, KSAugust 1, 2019
Highly competitive company that goes above and beyond to ensure training, safety and performance expectations are all up to date and clear. For those pursuing a role as a technician they are one of the best companies one can ask for as for as a path for training. They offer spiffs (one time bonus) for passing ASE tests and offer internal training for everything from entry level brakes/technician knowledge to advanced electrical diagnosis techniques.

For those pursuing a sales/management role:
The company pays incredibly better than any other retail auto repair competitor at the store level. That being said, entry level sales positions pay $40-$60k a year on average (depending on geographical location and store performance). In todays economy this is an upper-lower class to lower-middle class income. Great for singles, just ok for families. Highly competitive environment, very assertive goals for each store, and speed of upward momentum seems to stem more from building relationships/favoritism with direct supervisors rather than achieving/exceeding KPI goals. This would be my largest criticism, and occasionally puts less qualified people in charge of people who otherwise outperformed them in the past. Although, I do believe that this favoritism exists to some degree in any large company.
Pros
competitive pay, 401k, health care packages, training, upward mobility
Cons
long hours, very few company holidays, occasional favoritism, frequentl dirty/hot work needed by managers
