Fun first job
Service Manager (Current Employee) –  Clifton Park, NYOctober 27, 2013
I started at Hoffman Carwash in August 2006 as a 16 year old who loved cars. Being able to drive such a wide array of cars at such a young age was originally what drove me to apply. I began to really enjoy my job as well as the employees who some of which became friends for life. As time went on I was promoted to Service Adviser which is a salary plus commission sales job that rewards you the harder you work to upsell different services. The hardest part of my job was dealing with the rejection of up sells day after day and maintaining a positive out look. While my numbers were still superb week to week, it was tough at times to stay motivated. The most enjoyable part of my job was becoming friendly with so many consistent customers who come in every week.
Over the course of my time there I learned a lot about responsibility, motivation, and hard work. I have enjoyed my 7 years at Hoffman Carwash and would do it all over again if I could.

Line Attendant (Current Employee) –  Latham, NYJune 23, 2013
Too many authority figures (6 managers and god only knows how many supervisors) One person will teach you something one way and then you'll get yelled at by someone else and get retaught. DO NOT APPLY
