I am currently an employee at a Pepboys store and I must admit, I am probably earning around the same income as I did 35 years ago. What a slap in the face!!
They spend way too much time trying to brainwash employees into doing things the "pepboys way". I have been in the parts business for over 30 years and am very good at what I do...But apparently pepboys has their own little world and way of doing things. And the goofy looking clown outfits they make you wear is quite demeaning. Most of the mechanics are kids who think they know everything, but actually know nothing and they will make your car dangerous to drive.
Do yourself a favor and go to a garage that has been in business in your town for a long time, and stick with them...they will treat you right!
99 percent of the parts and products at Pepboys are from China and cheaply made and they WILL FAIL and possibly get you or someone you love...INJURED!! Take it from someone who knows...unfortunately...and STAY AWAY!
AS SOON AS SOMETHING BETTER COMES ALONG...I AM OUTTA HERE!!
