Management Opportunities

As a Manager in Training starting out with Crew Carwash, you'll discover that we've hired you to eventually run one of our locations. Promotions are based on performance, not seniority. We look for energetic individuals who are goal and career-oriented.

You'll be assigned to a location in your area and the training begins. You'll learn valuable business skills from capable mentors who may once have been in your shoes. Nearly 50% of all our managers started out in this program. During your first year, you will participate in all areas of our business.

On average, you can expect to be promoted to an Assistant Manager within 8-10 months. At completion of your Assistant Manager certification, we'll evaluate openings in your market and determine placement. Your own initiative and capabilities, coupled with your ability to think on your feet will dictate how fast you advance.

    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Crew Carwash (Plainfield, IN) in January 2019.


    First received a call from the location, this was a phone interview. Then scheduled an in person interview with the operations manager. Lastly, the Area Director called and set up my last interview with him.
