Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 12 October 2017
I have enjoyed my time at Midas. The atmosphere is very chill which has allowed me to get to know my co-workers well. I enjoy the Monday to Friday with the odd Sat here and there with time off in lieu. I have learned lots about becoming an Assistant Manager.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 2 September 2017
It was a very busy atmosphere, selling and up selling needed automotive repairs, managed the concerns of both staff and customer, including complaints, your individual ideas where heard and acknowledged, paid a reasonable amount for your efforts
General Labourer (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 21 June 2017
Manager and owners are really nice and help you when you need it. Work would involve showing up cleaning the shop, conduct oil and tire changes as needed. Co-workers are easy to get along with which helps
Apprentice Automotive Service Technician (Former Employee) – Cochrane, AB – 7 June 2017
Fairly average auto shop I happened to work at a franchise not a corporate shop working for a franchise was nice I didn't feel like just another number on a page management genuinely cares however like most shops the senior staff can be rather arrogant at times that being said Midas as a corporation does several things I don't agree with such as courtesy inspections on literally everything that comes through the door and they do things that have nothing to do with fixing cars but still not right in my mind such as forcing ridiculous customer discounts such as $29.99 oil changes unto shops and obscene franchise royalty demands however the employee discount on parts and tires as well as flexible vacation and time off and new state of the art shop equipment made the employment here very tolerable
Automotive Service Technician (Former Employee) – London, ON – 30 April 2017
management was the worst there, the owner was also manager, would not recommend this place to anyone looking for a job, even to "get their foot in the door", was very unhappy working at this place, biggest regret of my life, wouldn't doubt that there are more mechanics who would agree.
Service Writer (Former Employee) – St Paul MN – 14 March 2017
I worked at Midas on 7th st in St Paul as a service writer. The worst work environment I have ever seen. The manager was moody and offered no direction. He had a terrible temper and was mean to employees and customers. I personally saw car lifts that were damaging cars and techs who would leave a half quart or more of old oil in car! The store was dirty and disgusting and it was clear no one cared. Avoid this location! Extremely low pay as well! Constant swearing and yelling in the shop. Owners could care less!
Manager, Customer Service (Former Employee) – Southfield, NB – 28 December 2016
good work envirnment with many challenging situations. owners always seemed to be short of good reliable personnal which resulted in long hours that became ubdesireable (constant 60 hour work weeks that were not corrected as they said they would be)
Assistant Manager / Mechanic (Former Employee) – Aldergrove, BC – 3 November 2016
Boss was an automotive enthusiast and very knowledge able. Easy to get along with. Work was varied. Some long hours. Because it is a franchise, I found it to be a little structured like the military. I was able to manage and train employees as well
Normally 9-5 . Steady pay
Like most auto repair places, the odd complaint. But that just gave me additional skills how to deal with customers
While at midas i wasnt appriciated for the amount of work that i could do and that i have done. the owner was not a nice person at all and put himself over his employees all of the time. dont go to midas
Service Advisor (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 27 August 2016
All the staff and management treat you like family and do everything they can to make you feel happy at work. They are always happy to accomodate and give time off for your personal life and are happy to help students with their education.
