ABRA, a decade ago was an absolute pleasure to work for. Everyone knew everyone - we all LOVED ABRA. Once it went "corporate" it declined RAPIDLY. They fired the best they had over and over, people who had been with them from the start, without a conscience. New leadership is a joke. They have now reached a new low, they have lost the ABRA brand - new website looks like a $20 job. We used to insist on ABRA, not Abra! Now, this is their new brand Abra. They do not even have leadership bios at the website. They couldn't care less about you - it's ALL about their growth. The new management is in place only for a time, to accomplish goals then, they'll be gone soon as well. Very sad, to have lost what had been a phenomenal company. ABRA Auto Body & Glass a top notch company - is now dead. All past employees are in agreement on this subject. Quality is gone. Ethics are gone - it's all gone.

Go into the interview prepared to back out if they lowball you. Get a job description on paper and signed, especially if you are going to be in an hourly position, because otherwise you can count on doing multiple jobs in addition to your given title. Lastly, don't worry at all that you won't get hired on because they're desperate for employees and unless you honestly know you're not quality, you'll be in; Think of the job as a stepping stone to get into a smaller shop with less of a "big box store" corporate mind-set. Get hired. Get your experience. Build an exit plan. You're worth more than what this company will give you and you'll find a decent shop after cutting your teeth at Abra.

For a start, I would shift the main company objective from acquiring new shops to strengthening the shops they have. Re-invest profits in equipment, employee benefits ($4,000 medical insurance deductible is a joke), and over-all employee satisfaction. At this point if Abra could shift their public image from being an employer viewed as a last resort, to being a prime destination for potential employees, they could easily take over the auto repair industry and THEN return the focus to expansion while also striving to keep employee morale/satisfaction positive. Their current business plan lacks foresight and will sink them via a bad reputation in the public eye for consumers, and rejection from quality employees.

Abra no longer requires pre-employment drug screenings. You are only tested if there's a work-related incident or if the GM has reasonable suspicion that you came to work drunk or high.
