  • Extended Labor Warranty is a RIP OFF... Industry standard use to be 1 year recently it has become 2 years on parts and labor. But Pepboys only covers their parts and labor for 3months, and makes their customers pay extra for an "Extended Labor Warranty" that brings the warranty to a measly one year warranty.

What I like about the company

They do have good people working for them.

What I dislike about the company

They really dont pay their employees well, and thus the quality of work is less. And they want you to work Saturdays and Sundays... What kinda BS is that... So Corporate can make fat checks and get weekends off....

Suggestions for improvement

  • I believe it would be great to have someone talk to us in regards to benefits the company offers and to take advantage of. That way we will have longer lasting emplyees and that would appreciate working for the company. I do also recommend the company toencourage recycling. Paper is constantly getting disposed in trash instead of recycling bins.

What I like about the company

Pep Boys is a great place to begin learning about the automotive industry. Its a great place to build experience with customer service and to acquire vital skills one will need in the future.

What I dislike about the company

Pep Boys does offer certain benefits but above the store level nobody seems to care if their employers are educated with what the company offers. From acquiring ASE certifications to employee benefits. Furthermore, the company doesnt seem interested in sending a representative to help take advantage of what benefits employees have.
