Started out great then one take away after the next
Automotive Field manager (Former Employee) – USA – December 9, 2018
Started out with the company 4 years ago after my current company was bought out by Kar. The first year was great, was finally happy and was able to support my family and have security. I was working long days and covering a multi state area performing Automotive inspections. I had plenty of opportunity to make great money. I was just under 80k for the year. Things after that went down hill fast, I maintained the same amount of work but the pay structure dropped. I dropped down to just under 50k a year and have been there since. The company is more concerned about the stock holders and buying new companies, then the employees that helped get them there. The job itself was easy if you know vehicles and how to handle a computer. In my time with KAr only met two other employees. Meetings are very rare and it's over the phone. The bosses and office staff are changed every 6 months to a year. So if you don't like the boss, no need to worry they dont stay long. If you get injured at work or outside you better plan to be harrassed to go back even if you are not medically cleared. Expect alot of job postings from this company. All show no go!
The vehicle reimbursement program is horrible as well. They expect you to drive a car under two years old and put 40 to 80k miles on a year. But they will give you 400 a month to cover it. oh that covers gas and insurance. And you better have the best coverage. Don't be late paying it either!
The inspection equipment is nice but plan on the software always being down. You can spend 3 hours a week on tech support.
Good amount of vacation time
The shareholders are the first priority!
