    I worked at Automobile Association full-time (More than a year)


    The money is exceptional and uncapped. Realistically 40-50k is achievable, with some earning well over that. Enjoyable at the roadside helping people, most members are more than happy to see you. Targets are easily achievable but, you do need to work. Start work on your drive and finish on your drive, no travelling to work. Fully equipped vehicle, uniform and tools are all supplied. Good tips. Incentives to earn extra money are often implicated and really can help. I really enjoy it.


    We work shifts, and the hours can be long and late. I occasionally have shifts until 4am. That said, I started the job knowing the hours and shift pattern. The weather can at times be awful, you may find yourself laying on your back in the rain and it's not the best. This is balanced out by the good weather though. Occasionally you'll come across a member who is very trying, annoying, frustrating and many other things aside. But on to the next job it's all forgotten.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Automobile Association in May 2015.


    I applied for a role at the time I didn't realise that it was a Recruitment Agency that the AA trusted to run their campaign for them. We arranged a telephone interview which started about 15 minutes late and I must say it was the worst and most aggressive telephone interview I have ever attended. I think the AA should think twice about hiring agencies to do their first round screening. I made my excuses and terminated the call. The caller couldn't describe the AA strategic goals and it was just a complete nightmare.

Breakdowns build up business for The Automobile Association. Best known as the AA, the firm provides a variety of motoring services for some 15 million members in the UK, including roadside breakdown repair, driving lessons, inspections and car servicing. It has added auto insurance and financing to its list of products and services as well. One product separating AA from other motoring services competitors, such as Green Flag and RAC, is its satellite technology used to find the quickest route to a breakdown.
