I worked here for over a year. At first it was new and exciting as most jobs are. As time went on the hours got longer and longer. No breaks, no help, working 60+ hours a week becomes expected. Mandatory to work all Saturdays. When you ask for help it will fall on deaf ears.
A good company with strong work ethics, would suggest anyone who has a drive to learn and work hard, work timings sometimes can be too long and stressful but if you want to prove results and achieve you wont mind it.
Shop is not maintained and is scary to work in. Unorganized, supplies were never kept stocked. Owner is cheap and breaks laws, smokes in his shop even when customers are in it. He rips off customers constantly especially elderly. Got one uniform shirt had to wash it on my own. Overall horrible work environment.
Owner makes it seem like he's an amazing guy with an amazing crew, but after being there you can definitely see an inner circle of buddies that can bend the rules and do as they please and the owner is okay with it, everyone else is expendable, come and go as management sees fit, do not recommend working there if you have any amount of self integrity.
Midas was an amazing workplace filled with driven individuals who taught me many skills and helped guide me to solutions on solving problems. Management was phenomenal and was again helpful and lead their team well. Midas welcomed me in for a work experience program I did through school and i would recommend them as an employer or to do a work experience course with.
Working the counter.. If you are alone, do not expect to be able to get away for your lunch. Expect to be ''required'' to work 11 hours a day no overtime.
As an automotive shop its not all that bad otherwise, but there is alot of pressure about making more money, cutting back on wages, expecting more for less.. like any company these days.
Worked for a couple months at mid town Midas. Strong company policies , good quality products , antiquated computer system , definitely needs a modern up grade. Busy store. Absolutely full price policy . No customer discounts . Must have better quality personal
The managers were incredibly kind and had friendly relationships with most of the customers making it a very positive environment. The staff work as a tight team and also like to have their fun at work while staying professional.
Occasional beer-after-work with the boss
they're only looking for those who know about cars
review and answer e-mails
make sure items are in stock
count start an end of day cash to be correct
very enjoyable and lay back environment with great coworkers
enjoy interacting with customers
inform and educated a lot about cars and the service the company provide to clients
I am here as a co-op student and I couldn’t be happier with it. All the guys are amazing to work with and take the time to teach me the trade. Being the only girl in the shop they make me feel very comfortable and include me in all the work.
Gave me opportunity to deal with public. Analyze problems and recommend repairs. The shop was always busy so made the work day go by fast. Utilized time management skills to ensure jobs were done in a timely manner ensuring jobs were done correctly.
A cutthroat place to work . Management feeds their pets everyone else get oil changes and bogus jobs . Not a wise move for anyone unless its for resume padding . Backstabbing is the norm . Sad but true .
