    Current Employee - Estimator in Layton, UT

    I have been working at MAACO full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Took the time to train on estimation of cars. Was able to learn skills about the body and paint industry that I was looking to gain. Gave me the opportunity to spend more time with my family which was a great benefit I was looking for at the time.

    Cons

    Not much room for position advancement. Which is the nature of the industry.

    Estimator/Appraiser Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Pawtucket, RI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pawtucket, RI
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at MAACO in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    I received phone call from manager asking me if I wanted to come off the road (as independent appraiser) and work inside with him at Maaco. The manager knew who I was already because I had been there before on claims. I stopped by and met with owner and gave him my resume. We decided I would work about 15 hrs a week with them while I continued to operate my business. I think we both wanted to make sure that we were on the same page before we made a commitment to each other. I would have to sell my appraisal business if things looked good for all. I eventually worked mon wed and fri, eight hours each day at a rate of $200 per day. The owner offered me the full time job, but tried to negotiate my salary down a bit. I told him no, that I would have to move on. He very reluctantly agreed to pay me $1000 a week for the next 3 years, until they had a management change in 2012. So, my interview process was really my experience he needed to get to the next level with his business. There were not any questions about where I wanted to be in five years.........

    Negotiation Details
    After working with each other on a part time basis for 2-3 months, and paying my asking rate during this period, the owner tried to negotiate my rate down. I was hurt, but not as hurt as he was when I would not budge on my salary demands. He paid me what I asked for.
