Best Auto Glass Company, but not best place to work
Warehouse Manager (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – June 29, 2018
If you are going to be in the Auto Glass Industry, then there is no question that you should work for Safelite. They pay their technicians well, train well, and have the best opportunities for advancement.
However, if auto glass isn't your passion... Then Safelite is just not a very good company to work for. I can only speak for the Omaha / Nebraska Market, but the Leadership rules by email and lacks follow-though. The technicians are worked very hard during the busy season and often given more work than they can handle. Some technicians muscle through this and still perform well, but they load up the newer tech's as well, causing workmanship issues. For Middle Management, Safelite will try and pay as little as they can. Also, you are almost always guaranteed a "Meet's Expectation" on your annual review. Even if you rank best in your region (which was my case multiple times) you are given a Meet's Expectation review because they would rather not give more than a 3% raise. Overall, best place for Technicians if you can handle the work, not very good for management positions.
Great opportunity for Technicians, Great training for technicians
Not a good place for management, high turnover
