Corp HQ position. Management throughout many departments display a high lack of knowledge and pure disregard for current proven practices. Besides solid pay, no positives. Most are excited to leave and others resent those who do. I would recommend looking elsewhere if you want to be part of a progressive company, where your experiences/skills are valued.

I was a service manager that pretty much ran the store while the store manager was hanging out with his friends and girl friend or he would be on his cellphone all day. There was not help from the district manager since he did not know what to do. The store manage ran the store into the ground and how did the district manager repay me for trying to keep the store running. He tossed me in the shop in the next to ground level job and gave the store manager my job. He still does nothing and complains about everything while making more then I did doing the job. I pretty much did everything while I was a service manager. I would work in the shop to help the techs out since the store manager would pull techs to work on buddy stuff. I would take care of customers and complaints and work as a sale person while the store manager would just push it all on me. I would have went over the store manager head but for some reason he is protected by the district manager and nothing would have been done anyways.

Management underthrows techs and diagnoses vehicles for them selves by throwing parts at them. No life whats so ever. Long shifts and management has no patience.

No training just trial by fire. Management has no motivation to fix the lack of knowledge in their shop they would rather Sul up and complain. Work life balance is all work and no life.
