Manager (Current Employee), PickerningJuly 16, 2013
Cons: the hours for a manager is what is expected and that is fine by me
I love customer service. Helping people and making them feel good and understanding about their purchases or even seeing a smile in their faces makes me very happy and then i know my job is done well. I beleive in teamwork and honesty. Unfortunately the franchisee i'm working with does not feel that way

co-op position
Shop Helper (Former Employee), Waterloo, ONFebruary 26, 2013
Pros: good work enviroment
Cons: long hours
I was a co-op student there and I learned a lot. the guys there are very respectfull and supportive. they will teach you what they can when they could. The managment sometimes run around like lost children but otherwise a really good place to work for. the management sometimes rips people off e.g customer came in had an exhaust leak and wanted to charge – more... customer for a whole new exhaust and anouther mechanic welded on a peice of pipe and it was good to go. – less

They are nothing but thieves!!
Shop Manager (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXJuly 3, 2014
MIDAS is in fact an awful company to work for, especially if it is a franchise. These people will reel you in and tell you it's a great company and a great job. When in fact it is the exact opposite. I have come to find that I was always the only person qualified to do their job, the corp, never sticks to its standards. Almost none of the technicians – more... are ASE certified. And the repairs that would be made were mediocre at best. Stay away from MIDAS bad place to work even worse place to get your vehicle fixed hands down! – less

midas was good until they sold it to franchise
General Service Technician (Former Employee), San Diego, CAJune 30, 2014
Pros: good learning experience
Cons: fired for no reason
Work was very easy and managers were good to me. it was own by corporate which was good when i was working there. When the new franchise owner bought the store it was a bad experience for me. it was horrible, i got fired, just because i took one day off and it was verified by my former manager telling me i can taking a day off.. The new owner did not – more... care, when i came back to work my uniforms where missing and my boss tells me the new owner fired me. I was informed that i was fired because he did not like me as a person. He didn't even give me a chance to even work for him. During the time Midas store was going through there transition of selling the store. So the first day he takes over, he lets me go. Its not right for him to do that to me. He couldn't even say it to my face, he just had the manager tell me. – less
