In the store I worked in when I started was pretty good. Everyone helped each other. After my second week everything went down hill. Shop management acts all high and mighty. Only guy who was the same after my first month was a guy I'll call T for privacy. If I needed help T was there. Advancement was limited. Pay was pitiful and no matter your knowledge of the car world. You start at entry level. Even when you apply for better levels.
Pros
1 hour lunch. Non managment employees are just like you.
Cons
Managment team members are high and mighty. Time window to request off is very slim

Base pay + commission sounds good until all the work is taken from you from the lead tech so they make all the money while leaving you to look bad on the books with no work to show for it. It's a one man show at this location and management doesn't care. Jerked around to multiple franchise locations to start over and it's the same story to a different tune. Base pay was fair, but work load was not. No opportunities to advance.
Pros
Base pay
Cons
hierarchy within

Started with Goodyear after a year with Pepboys back in 99 or 2000. They sent me to school and I worked my way up to Master Tech after a few years. I was lucky to be at a busy shop and never sat around. Pay is 100% commission once you get to the level I was at so it really depends on your service managers skills at selling jobs. Thankfully mine was amazing. I would recommend going here if you are interested in working on every kind of vehicle that is out there.
Pros
Busy shop and made great money
Cons
Had to work every Saturday the entire time I was there

Excellent employer, great working conditions and pay, great cars to work on, great workshop, well equipped, worked at Chelsea Victoria,Workshop from 1/6/2015-30/7/2015, it’s just a shame they didn’t have enough work for me that’s why the position ended as a Qualified Automotive Technician.

The enviroment and people at this job are amazing. The shop normally runs like clockwork very clean and trustworthy to the end. However the management is sub Par and how they handle disputes is childish to say the least.

My day starts at 7:30 am and I open up store turning on compressors , start up computers and unlocking doors. Manager goes above and beyond to make customers happy and the employees.

Great opportunity to expand knowledge of automobiles and how they work and what to do to fix them. Fast paced quick work days with a good feeling of helping people fixing problems others can not.

work opportunities are good for advancement and pay raises. Must not be too bad of a place to work, I was there off and on for 18 years! Once in a while, you get some trying managers, but not often. That's something you take a chance on anywhere!

There was no team work . Every body was lazy . The management at that time had favorite people , some he liked , some he did not like . Some he treated better than others . That is one reason I left , among alot of other reasons .
