General Manager (Current Employee) – Miami, FL – October 18, 2017
Great company, management is helpful, but they leave you to manage and they do not micro manage you. They tend to come up with a lot of side work and you are pulled in many different directions. They sometimes seem more worried about having Lean Shops than the contract customers.

Supervisor at optima always has attitude, and is always after someone, very unprofessional and a very depressing work environment, you will constantly be watching your back from him, beware if you decide to apply

“Worst Company I've Ever worked for, keep your sanity!”
General Manager (GM) (Former Employee) – Reg 4 – November 30, 2016
After spending almost 6 Years as a GM, I am still shocked at that the President knowingly allows the RVP to act and govern in such an Unprofessional manner. The Maintenance manager is so far up the bum of the RVP that he actually wears the same clothing to impress the VP. Do not confide in the MM he is not on the side of the employee. The General managers in the region Have on multiple occasions contacted each other to perhaps collectively contact HR for help. In every case it was dropped in fear of reprisal. I know personally, of three contracts that were lost because of bad management from the regional level.not the store level. However it was sold upstream as ground level problem and the GM was fired. Its funny how long this has been going on without the President addressing it. He must be way out of touch with his regions or or maybe someone has photos on him? Not sure. My advice is Steer clear of this company as a Manager. They have -0- integrity. The will lie and throw you under the buss if they need a scapegoat and they will always need a scapegoat as long as they keep blowing contracts.
Reasonable pay, Still low for industry standards
Untrustworthy leadership, Underhandedness, No Corporate support
I enjoyed my job immensely but the company made it difficult
Service Advisor (Former Employee) – Orlando – August 10, 2015
First vehicle services has a safety culture that is counter productive and their managers are very un helpful my tips for working here are to make sure you are friends with the manager or you could find your position being written out of a contract
lack equipment, but good work atmosphere- management clear goals
Service Technician (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA, Paramount Ca – June 26, 2015
On a good day a list of tasks/jobs that need attention- easy access to parts to make repairs in a timely fashion Learned first vehicle services system for ordering parts, inputting repair story on computer, became accustomed to doing fleet maintenance Management was easy to get along with and had clear objectives most of the time. Co-workers were easy to get along with, only a very small percentage were difficult. The most enjoyable part of the job was proximity to home when LEAVING work, clarity of job descriptions, making friends at work.
Learning fleet maintenance, good work atmosphere, health insurance available, but pricey
Working split shift in 2 locations-difficult commute in the morning
Shop Supervisor (Former Employee) – Mission,Texas – May 17, 2015
The General Manager leaves early everyday, the parts accounts are always on hold because they never pay the bill on time, and the office is always dirty, no one likes to clean after themselves. I was told this was the worst shop in the whole company after being hired by a manager.
Technician (Current Employee) – Frisco, CO – April 28, 2015
Great repair shop. Great group of people to work for and with. Always busy. 4 ten hour work shifts with 3 days off in a row is a plus. Not living close by work is difficult. A typical day at work is to listen to daily safety messages, receive work assignment, and work straight through the evening with the allowance of breaks and lunch, The work shift goes by too fast. What I learned is that all diesel equipment has to be serviced at it's predetermined scheduled service intervals and the repairs/services have to be performed accurately. Co-workers are friendly and helpful, well educated and experienced. The hardest part of the job is knowing how to manage the size and weight of the vehicle while working on it. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting there.
Shop size and equipment available to work with.
Expensive to live close by. Salary does not match standard of living
Parts & Service Administrator (Current Employee) – Coconut Creek, FL – February 4, 2015
Everyday at work the priorities are changed. I have learned to deal with the highest priorities first as all customer concerns are important. Maintaining the highest quality of customer service is done by me in the most effective way I know how. My co-workers and I work together as a team. The hardest part of my daily activities is trying to make sure I have gotten back to all clients that need a problem to be resolved that the customer is happy. I have maintained proper communication in a timely manner. The most enjoyable part of my day is knowing that at the end of every day I have put my all into serving the community and strive to make the best of of every situation that arises.
Technician II (Former Employee) – Thornton, CO – March 23, 2014
Spent almost 6 years of my life at this company. With depleting benefits and management system unaware that the customer is not happy with the management decisions let broken unsafe equipment to run. 3 mechanics plus decided to move on. Would not recommend this company to a dedicated mechanic in this field.
