This job was not meant to be long term. It was a chance to learn and I learned alot
Regional Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Pomona, CA – October 30, 2013
I was hired on to take their struggling service departments and and make it function correctly.
I learned budgeting, P&L, corporate structuring, and how not to lead people
I managed up to 100 Service Technicians, Lead Techs, and Service Managers. my main day to day was to manage the operations in % Branch locations in 4 states.
The hardest part was the Company CEO. He micromanaged and lead the company by fear and intimidation. I was against this way of management and that cause friction between him and I.It made getting my job don very difficult, but i was still able to do my job and train my replacement before leaving.
I enjoyed the techs and service managers very much. They were all great people to work with.
Good people to work with. lots of travailing.
Bad management and a stressful work environment
