While working for this shop i have seen much wrong doing by the managers-JEFF STARK and RAY GARCIA-to start off why people with expensive cars go to meineke is beyond me-there was a porsche 911 there for a no start problem-the only thing wrong with this car is the owner somehow accidentally kicked/disconnected the clutch/starter switch(located near the clutch)-they told the customer it needed a starter when in fact all they had to do was just reconnect a wire--they may have charged well over $1500 for this job when it should of cost nothing-or even a tip from the customer sayin thanks for not rippin me off for my mistake-
i have seen a bmw 745 for a no power steering and overheating problem at the same time-what happened was the idler pulley crapped out and that destroyed the belt(common on BMW's)-the point-the repair should have cost $150-200---instead-they charged $2000-how?-they told him he needs new control arms,coolant expansion bottle(coolant reservoir),and a power steering reservoir-
i've witnessed a tech break things and hit things on a vehicle when he got angry with the vehicle-whether it was sabotage or what i have seen the same tech break things on a car-and the managers had to call the customer and tell him/her that the car needs this-in other words-the tech broke the car and the customer pays to fix it-and the tech got paid extra cause they charged extra(they give the techs a 13% commision of the value of the ticket)-this is why they tell you it needs all kinds of s h i t it doesn't need-regardless-the managers let it happen and go with it-but the people should be smarter i guess-.
There is 2 cars in this shop that have been there for 3 months!!!!-imagine being without your car for 3 f'n months man!!!!-how they hold these people off is beyond me-but i never worked in the office.
I myself have removed and replaced near new tires on several vehicles-there was some cases i have seen people come in and ask if they need tires cause they don't know i guess-then i see the manager looking at the tires-then i get the job to replace all these tires that are near new--these cases i know are rip off cases-how it works is beyond me-then there is some people who just say i need new tires(for them being dumb you cannot complain)
As an employee i was ripped off from my paycheck by $20--and this was the 1 time i looked in there computers to see what they are paying me--how many other times where there???--there is 2 classifications of employees here-hourly and commsions-the commision guys get 13% of the total ticket value/what they charge the customer-then there is GENERAL SERVICE(which i was and we get paid $9.00 an hour+ commisions-but the commisions we get are so cheesy-$1 a tire, $3 for services(trans,coolant)--some work they do not pay you commsions for such as installing customer tires(people that brought tires just for installation) and tire rotations-yet they charge $12 to install 1 tire and $15 for the rotation-they did not pay us for installing bulbs either-there was many things they could of paid us for but did not.
With all this, if you ever think of shopping at this location-know this-you will be overcharged-and for what-so the owner can drive his 500sl-his wife a 745 and the manager an e320(all on leases of course)-this and fake breasts for his soon to be x wife--while you are being ripped off and overcharged at meineke the manager is on the spending spree of a lifetime from your money he never deserved to receive in the first place-
think about how many people they have ripped off before i started working there and now after-but i hope many people in this area read this and can avoid these scum bags ripping others off--even if the customers have the money to spend anyway.
