Parts Coordinator (Former Employee) - Franklin, WI - October 14, 2019
This has been the most stressful job I’ve ever had. Your working with a bunch of grown children there is no accountability no respect and a lack of enforcement from management. The parts person always gets blamed for aftermarket parts not fitting parts not showing up or coming in damaged. The techs always blame parts when they have to fix a used door,fender , etc... they would rather be parts replaces techs basically get away with doing whatever they want even when it comes to treating another employee poorly and management sees that they are upset and miserable they do nothing about it. The management hear only cares about making budgets so the company makes money so the higher ups do not show up asking what is going on why are you not making budget. I’m will never tell anyone to go file out an application for this place this has been the worse job I’ve ever been in due to management and everything that it lacks
Insurance, decent pay, over a 1000 stores to transfer to
Lack of respect, poor management, stressful, no accountability, no repercussions

Nothing more than a number when you work for any mso type shop. I will work for Walmart before I ever work at that kind of environment again. There are so many unrealistic expectations and deadlines and it is all about covering the companies behind
Assistant General Manager (Former Employee) - Minnesota - October 7, 2019
Never believe what the higher ups tell you
Get everything in writing
They will lie to you and keep doing it
They care more about the ins company’s then employees and customers and it is not how hard you work or what you know it’s truly about who you know and how much you kiss butt
I have seen people move up to a GM with no exp just bno thank you ecause they kissed the right persons butt
No family time, long hours, a company that doesn’t care about you, they lie to you
Rate your employer to help people make better career decisions.

Industry which survives by acquisitions
Senior Talent Acquisition Consultant (Former Employee) - Philadelphia, PA - October 2, 2019
My job was to find talent in an industry that experiences extremely high turnover. It's a legacy organization with gimmicky ideas on recruiting and retaining workers. Great learning experience for me- showed me how the values of corporate, operations management and hourly workers are seriously misaligned.
Training was not enforced well, and general managers were caught in the middle of meeting revenue numbers with a workforce that doesn't take pride in the work they do.
Body Technician (Former Employee) - Alcoa, TN - September 30, 2019
I worked there for almost 3 years. Started off with bad management and empty promises so when we got new management I was happy and thought it would get better than it was. Only to find out the new management has never ran a shop before and had no clue what they were doing. I got a $1 raise after a year and a half of working there only to get it taken from me when the new management stepped in and was told there was “no proof” that I ever got a raise in the first place. I was told I’d get the raise back if I went 60 days with a certain amount of hours weekly, which I did, and never even got the raise back. Nothing but bad blood for this company and I hope they don’t last much longer. Went through 25 employees within the 3 years of working there, only because they quit due to terrible management and being treated poorly. I voluntarily worked nights (11pm-3am) just to make more hours for a bigger paycheck to provide for my family and never got a simple “thank you” for making them more money with happy customers in return. I will never recommend anyone to work for this company, never take my car to get repaired by them, or ever work for them again. I can honestly say I’ve never worked for a more terrible company who makes more money than God himself, off the employees who put blood and sweat into everything they do for them.
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!
Do these reviews help you learn more about working at ABRA Auto Body & Glass?

Great auto glass company
Auto Glass Technician (Former Employee) - Colorado Springs, CO - September 24, 2019
I only worked there for 3 months but it was the best auto glass company I have worked for in 28 years in the industry. If I hadn't gotten hurt on the job and could still lift more than 25 lbs, I'd still be working there.
Good management, good environment
Dispatching needs a little work but no more than any other mobile glass company.
Automotive Paint Technician (Former Employee) - Forest Park, IL - September 10, 2019
While working for ABRA Auto body and Glass, there were things that slowed down production(wrong parts, parts not checked, missing parts; no paint supplies/slow ordering of supplies) and made it difficult to make optimal earnings. It was tho, a good work environment.
Paint Prep (Former Employee) - Indianapolis, IN - August 22, 2019
This company offered a 5k sign on bonus to myself and multiple other new employees. Also the company offered to send me to school to further my abilities within the company. None of the above took place and i was given a different work task then i had been promised or applied for. The company basically wanted its "competitions" employees to start employment with their company.
Glass Technician (Former Employee) - Glendale, WI - August 19, 2019
No time to have a life outside of ABRA
Unlawful work practice
If you're looking for a good place to work, keep looking. This company is beyond awful to work for.
Production Manager (Former Employee) - Thornton, CO - August 19, 2019
Great Company with amazing growth opportunities. Great benefits and training. I started as a quality control technician before being promoted to Parts Manager. As a Parts Manager I was offered an opportunity to become a body apprentice or Customer Service Manager. I chose Customer Service Manager and after a little over a year in that position I was promoted to Pre-Op/Production Manager.
