Working at Pep Boys really is not so easy, especially when you have upper management and corporate people who are not on the side of the employees. Like the other employee guy said, hardly anyone in the company got a raise this year, but the CEO is going to take home about 20 million.
Of course, I understand it is like this in many corporations, but there is no excuse. Many people are underpaid and overworked, to say the least. There is a corporation wide payscale that comes out every year, and many people are paid less than the MINIMUM wage listed on the scale. It is ridiculous how they not only don't care about the customers, but they *** on their employees, too.
Our insurance that they offer is so high that most people who work there are uninsured.
If Pep Boys employees were seen as assets to the company, rather than pawns to rip people off, maybe the customer service and prices would be better. Next time you are pissed off, please remember that most Pep Boys employees are pissed off too, they really hate their job and they hate what the corporation is doing and making the employees do. If we do not sell enough, we are made to look like ***, and the managers do not bonus which puts everyone in a sour mood.
This is really no excuse for bad customer service or overpriced items. I just wanted everyone to have a brief look into the job of an employee.
Most of us hate our jobs, and the fact that the corporation is falling apart does not make it any easier.
