Pros

Very professional environment. The service managers and technicians are very friendly and have give a team environment. They understand that we all have lives outside of Hall and know that sometimes we might not want to be bothered with work that they themselves can do.

Cons

Working outside can be bothersome in the hot heat or the coldest winters. The nature of being a service manager is more being a salesperson than a knowledgeable mechanic.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees more and don't cut back a lot of the employee perks as much. Show more employee appreciation.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    It pays the bills, almost.

    Cons

    Most of the upper management, including the General Manager in Chesapeake, are old school guys who want to do it the way they did 30 years ago. Today's employee is different and responds to a different style of bottom up management. These guys are racist, unprofessional, and really only care about the bottom line. I am white, and in management, and am uncomfortable most of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and realize that your staff is your most important asset. When you take care of them first, your customers will automatically be treated well. They are not pawns to be used strictly to line your pocketbooks. They have lives and families that are far more important to them than this job.


  2. "ASE master auto technician"

    Pros

    The technicians who work there are generally nice people. Raises were clearly defined as a technician (certifications + years). When we were busy you could make a lot of money.

    Cons

    Flat rate pay is not conducive to customer satisfaction. In order to make a decent paycheck you need to work on a lot of cars, fast. 40+ hour work week is the normal (avg 46hr) since you are paid by the job there is no overtime for the extra hours you are there. Generally you come home wore out and dirty to the point it takes your weekends to recover.

    Advice to Management

    To reduce comebacks and increase customer satisfaction pay the technicians hourly or salary.
