- JD Byrider06.Jul 2017
Work for a franchise, not a corporate store
Too many back door politics
Support from management
you are expected to 'figure it out'
It's commissioned sales!
Freedom to work independently
There is no trust, either way
You hear about company challenges, changes are frequent because it seems that there is no leadership
Not from what I see
Attitude towards older colleagues
If they're younger, they'll work cheaper
Staffs in dealerships have been cut, therefore have a skeleton crew
Overall compensation for your work
Salaries and bonuses (or lack of bonuses) are constantly changed. Base pay for starting commissioned sales dropped more than 6k for new hires.
Office / Work Environment
Average work environment, need to get with 21st century with computer programs
they recycle paper and some used oils in the shop
8 hours becomes 15 regularly, there's always pressure to work more hours
A good franchise owner is the way to go. Corporate offices need a house cleaning.
Too many jobs have been eliminated because of financial issues of the company
Nothing handicap accessible at dealership level
There is company provided training for safety
Use to be rewarding, now just corporate garbage
Inclusive / Diverse
What comes out of the corporate offices is it. No one listens to employees, it's a good ole boys network. Are any executive of color? Or female?
Suggestions for improvement
- Get rid of your egos and political correctness and get down to running a business.
What I like about the company
Franchisees great to work for--could give lessons to corporations--unfortunately, corporate executives not willing to listen.
What I dislike about the company
Changes in compensation, bonuses on a regular basis, elimination of store personnel to save money (being told you would be fired if you told anyone they were being let go). No work-life balance. 60-80 hour work weeks.
