    Pros

    You will not be accountable for anything. You will be able to work from home.

    If you suck up to your boss you will progress (no need for qualifications or experience at this joint).

    Retail Managers in there tyre network were great to work with, so much intelligence in the stores, however management never listened to the poor buggers!

    Cons

    Leadership is non existent! There are no genuine opportunities for training/ development.

    You will be paid poorly with little to none benefits. You will be required to have KPI's but you won't be required to achieve them which I guess is why no one will hold you accountable for what you are actually being very poorly paid to do.

    Advice to Management

    I thought I had seen bad senior/ executive leadership before.. But this takes it to a whole other level. What an incompetent group! Very much have a 'know it all' mentality, but have no idea on what is actually going on in the business or on the retail floor.

    Pros

    Multiple responsibilities allow for a greater range of open doors for you to stick your foot in through so to speak.

    Cons

    Low-pay, not much business. There was plenty of time for sitting around and watching movies or playing on the Internet.

    Advice to Management

    Work on advancement of the employees, practice better marketing to attract and help get more business in the door for technicians.

    Pros

    probably the most honest and professional of this type of business towards the customer, did not harass employees to sell, sell, sell

    Cons

    six full days a week, with a fairly low pay scale, with very little room for internal promotion, also worked most holidays without any additional pay

    Advice to Management

    give the employees some incentive pay for holidays and sundays, keep the bays above freezing at night in the winter because it takes too long to warm up, up the pay scale for management
