I worked at The Collection full-time for 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 Senior Management – Listen to your technicians, who actually make money for the business instead of others who just collect the paycheck.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
