Nothing more to say. Unfortunately I will not recommend that job. Everything is changing in seconds. No matter how well you will plan your day and your trips to customers because someone will always make it impossible to do. Company expects many things from you but you can’t expect anything from them.

I've worked here for just over a year, the job itself is great if you like working on cars, the management is useless, you are only a number and your life outside of work means nothing, the manager doesn't know how to run a centre and forces staff to work days off because he doesn't accommodate the staff, oversell (selling brake fluid changes on cars that don't need them either.) Rips people off and has even stabbed a few tyres to make the customer change them, books cars in so you work past closing and only cares about himself, the company itself will drop you like a hat and you will never feel safe
Pros
Good team without the manager
Cons
No family life if your kids go to sleep at 7, poor management, poor communication, your not important to the company

Worked for Kwik fit mobile,full off promises that never mounted to anything,when needing a hand there is no one willing to assist. Promised achievable targets to make bonus,not true. Never hit target or made any bonus in the last year. Targets are sky high and you wont reach half your target even on a busy month. There is no incentive to take on more jobs through the day because of this. Management don't want to hear your issues/problems,rear brake pads caught fire after reporting a sticking caliper and told to drive it anyway,also I had a wheel fall off my van after reporting an issue with the rear off the van,was stuck for 5 hours waiting on a recovery as they had organized one from the other side off the counrty. Overall bad company sending you out in death traps without a care
Pros
4 days off
Cons
Everything else

Shocking company, want you to work every minute you have and then question why there is overtime for you, have box tick forms every month to put the blame on to you if something goes wrong, never praised for good work, no clarity from managers above the centre, lies upon lies about promotions and wage increases, don’t expect to get your breaks, expected to rob every customer of every last penny for work not required, centre targets for a charity campaign You will however meet some great people in the centres that form a good friendship even outside of work
Pros
Work mates
Cons
Minimum wage, lack of breaks, managers, holidays

Was with kwik fit mobile for just over a year. When in the interview they promise you the world. When your in the door reality sets in adn it all crumbles like a red hot mars bar. Hit bonus once in the 14 months i was there. Staff are all for themselfs...the snakiest workplace i have ever worked! Management dont want to hear when you have problems and try brush it all under the carpet! All in all the worst job i have had! Total shambles of a company starting from the top!! Avoid
Pros
4days on 4off
Cons
Very unorganised. Run by monkeys

I believe the time I working for Kwik fit had its ups and down like any other job in the interstrey what sets apart Kwik for from the rest is the smart and looking sharp approach offices were customers were sat and made to feel welcomed free hot beverage and TV all work carried out on vehicle's were customers decreshon a lot was bases on customers CE first time keeping of servicing and repairs also carried out were to customers satisfaction is meetings school runs that sort of thing now as an employee work can be tuff and there are always loops and expression to work towards own goals to become what u want and we're u want to be heading out briefly on the spanners management or mobile tyre fitting if you are lucky those are your options I felt working for the company a key element were the team to building trust and confidence can make all the difference to good working environment.
Pros
Pizza bonuses
Cons

Worked for KF for 15 years in many different centres, met some great people some not so great people who usually leave then blame everyone else for why they left, but you get that in any job I guess. Management are firm but fair, decisions are made with the best interests of the customer, the staff and the business at heart. Very secure job, you don’t get torn apart for making a mistake, great training, good bonus scheme. Holiday you get 26 days in your first year plus 3 bank holidays where they are closed, this increases with each year of service. Workflow is tidal throughout the day as they don’t take a lot of bookings, customers just turn up whenever so you have to have lunch when there is a break in the workload, there is always time to eat. There is loads of opportunity for progression into higher roles as they have so many branches, vacancies come up which you can apply for. If you work hard and put the effort in you can have a long rewarding career with Kwik Fit.
Pros
Fair Management, Secure job, Stable Company, Good training, Good pay and benefits, Decent holiday pay, Friendly colleagues
Cons
Hard work, cold in the winter working in the workshop, 7 day business with some weekend work (not every weekend)

Great company to work for and get training to work your way up in the industry and open new doors some great teams or people to work with in centres. I have work for the company 6 years and worked up from a trainee fitter to an mot tester. Low pay for individuals in this industry but if you can get into it will help open doors for future jobs with better pay and benefits. Some management are really lacking in centres or operations management getting moved every 2 years to different centres not giving you much sense of stability.
Pros
Some great people to work with in a team staff benefits and discounts good training facilities
Cons
bad management getting moved around different centres

After only a year of being with the company u would of expected to be sent on atleast 1 course to further your career from only just being a tyre fitter but every time you asked for it, it was always yeah al sort it it never happened so whatever job you have with them thats what you'll be forever at kwik fit so in my honest opinion I would not recommend applying for a job there.
Pros
None
Cons
Long hours, terrible wages, horrible bosses, dont get a full half hour like ypur supposed to.

I would never work for this company again . You are treated as a number. And they know you can be replaced easily.they expect miracles and if you don’t meet them they will replace you. I was working for a manager who was good at his job and I’ve been in the business for nearly 35 years and he was told to leave . So don’t waste you’re time. Find another company

If you are a woman or have mental health issues then youre screwed. The managment dont care at all and if you want training, good luck, ive been working for the company 2 years now and got NO WHERE! After asking and asking for brake training etc i just gave up as it never happened. You dont get breaks at all so dont bother with asking how long that is as you work through your lunch hour. The area manager is useless and doesnt care unless you sell a lot of unneeded items to customers. The higher the bill the happier the managment are. Honestly Kwik Fit is a joke and just ruins your enthuisasim for work, car and customer service.
Pros
None
Cons
Management dont care about your health, no lunch hour, no training.

This place is not a place you should work at with poor management and understaffed centres. Joined as an apprentice worked for one year and was only taught how to fit tyres everything else I learned I learnt myself but the place never let me progress and always kept me in the tyre bay for a whole year so I left.
Pros
20% off tyres (basically nothing because customers can even get that)
Cons
Long hours, poor management, under staffed, over worked, not a second to sand around literally, miss your breaks and sometimes even your lunch, low pay as possible no matter what position your in.
