    Former Employee - Auto Technician in Coral Gables, FL

    I worked at The Collection full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, paid parking (after 3 years), good vacation time, clean, good pay (but read Cons), friendly people (sort of).

    Cons

    If you want to move up in the automotive field, look somewhere else. This company is known for hiring from the outside instead of promoting from within. Also with this company, and from other dealerships, they will give the easy, good paying work to the new techs while the more difficult jobs go to the techs with more experience. You would think this makes sense, but it leveled the amount of money that everyone made and created a lot of shop drama. The more money you made per hour, the less hours you were going to make. So in the 7 total years I worked there (left once and came back), I made $18 more than when I started. But my overall pay at the end of the year never changed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your technicians, who actually make money for the business instead of others who just collect the paycheck.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at The Collection in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    Received a phone call from the manager, scheduled an appointment with the HR Manager for an interview, and came in for the interview. Also spoke with the Service Director and the Service Manager. Only interviewed once, and took a couple of days for them to make an offer. I looked over the offer and thought about it for a couple of days. I then called them back and accepted their offer. I started working after 2 weeks.
