Overworked and NOT PAID ENOUGH!
Automotive Technician (Current Employee) – Ellicott City, MD – May 18, 2015
This company is a monster! They don't care about you as an employee, only numbers! How many cars can you crank out, busting the daily budget. Managers worry about their bonuses and are open about it in front of the technicians in the shop. Some days it can be non-stop in the shop and other days it can be a ghost town. Management has no sense of time and are taking in more cars than there are technicians.
Today was a perfect example of the "Everyday Cluster F***". Myself and two other techs had cars we were servicing. While servicing these cars, the manager walked out with a "Walk In" ticket and realized that we already has cars. Oh yeah, the customer was waiting too. As I stated above, no sense of time.
The store manager at my shop has the "Do as I say, not as I do" leadership style. He constantly critiques our paperwork, asks us if we did something when IT'S WRITTEN ON OUR PAPERWORK and passes his OCD off on us!
