    Whittier, CA Franchise - horrible shop management skills!

    Estimator/Appraiser Auto Damage (Former Employee)
    Whittier, CA

    ProsGood entry level experience, close to home, cheaply priced service which is easy to sell.

    ConsDepending on franchise, pay is base + 3% of PRODUCTION. If shop is not managed well, like in my case, then no matter how hard you work in the office, you will still only get paid what the shop produces. I brought in 25k in sales one week, but was only paid based off 4k of production. =/

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to hire separate shop managers to manage shop.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good place to work, stable owner who believes in educating his employees in their field.

    Estimator/Appraiser (Former Employee)
    Pawtucket, RI

    ProsMaaco has been around a long time, and they have tried and proven procedures that provide positive results with the right personnel.

    ConsThe right personnel was not always in place.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThank you for the opportunity to help bring your franchise to the next level, while helping me retain the knowledge and believes I walked in the door with.......

    Great experience in my sales career.

    Estimator (Current Employee)
    Layton, UT

    ProsTook 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.

    ConsNot much room for position advancement. Which is the nature of the industry.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great job if you're just out of high school or trying to make ends meet temporarily.

    Taper (Current Employee)
    Tampa, FL

    ProsThe schedule. It's 7-5 Mon-Fri. Hard to find a schedule like that. They do pay for holidays. It's not hard.

    ConsPoor management. No future. Some of the work subjects you to dangerous chemicals...and dust...dust...dust. Absolutely no benefits. Your coworkers are usually kind of dumb.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire less people in your stores and pay them more. My shop is over staffed and no one is really making a decent wage.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    They promise the world, but do not teach you what you really need to know.

    Franchise Owner (Current Employee)

    ProsName brand , being your own boss, access to products and supplies at discount prices. nice office setup, tiered pricing boards help with sales.

    ConsOver the years, Ive seen a lot of franchisee's fail, most times its been due to lack of support from corporate.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMaaco really should rethink its support system, meaning, its infield support at the franchise location level. There is virtually no sales support, there are some good tech support guys to teach
    you how to run the back of your shop, ( the production side ) but in the front, learning how to contact & acquire fleet, dealer, corporate, city, state, goverment accounts there is basically no support.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
