Paycheck cashes every week. 5-day work week, weekends off.
If you can fog a mirror, you can get a job here. Or is that a con?Cons
Amerit Fleet Solutions hasn't got a blessed clue about what is involved in either fixing vehicles or running a professional shop. The facility I work at is grossly inadequate in every respect from physical size to equipment to a sad lack of necessary tooling. A year ago, they threw open the doors saying put up some lifts, hire some people and start fixing on cars. Ten bays, one working scan tool (an obsolete MODIS), hardly any special tools, and two thousand vehicles to try and keep up with.
No professional development training is available; one of many things I was lied to about when I interviewed. In this field, if you don't constantly stay abreast of changing technology you get out of touch very rapidly.
No Idea how to dispatch work according to skill levels. They will have "A" techs doing tires and PMs while "C" and "D" techs struggle with driveability and electrical issues, throwing a thousand dollars of parts at a car and not only NOT fixing it, but actually creating new problems that necessitate it being towed back the same day it left.
High turnover. The front office is a rotating door and we have been through four managers in a year. Several technicians have quit, more are about to, and they won't fire the incompetent people.
No standards.No sense of priorities. Management constantly changes their minds according to who got upset about what today.
Benefits are substandard.
And have I mentioned that opinions are NOT welcome?
I wondered why I was called for an interview less than an hour after I sent my resume. Now I know.Advice to ManagementAdvice
