    Pros

    People are always going to wreck cars, so you have a stable job

    Cons

    LOTS OF HOURS
    They don't like to pay a lot, if you get too much overtime they will change you to salary so you make less
    No real training in place
    Estimators are VERY strapped for time and there isn't a lot of support for them
    Not much room for advancement

    Advice to Management

    Take a little pressure off your estimators.

    Pros

    Laid back, fun, co-workers are excellent

    Cons

    Management needs training, cussing is very harsh, presentation of some workers is very poor to the public, dishonest, poor work quality.

    Advice to Management

    In a management role I do not believe that every other word should be cussing, I also do not believe that there should be favoritism shown between staff members, I believe that a manager should perform there jobs to the highest professionalism everyday including a dress code.

    Pros

    good opportunities, pay is decent, full time job

    Cons

    It seems as it's never enough and the corporate side of things is way too focused on numbers only, surveys are a JOKE, techs leave and come back to get the pay they want.

    Advice to Management

    Follow through with what you promise.. give pay raises without employees having to ask; I.e. Look at what other companies are paying and compensate as such.

    I have been working at Gerber Collision & Glass full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Even though i'm beyond upset with the recent pay change, i can say that there are really good managers in place in this region. I'm lucky to be going back to one of my earlier GMs, my mentor, and he truly cares about employees and their well being and families, as does the DM over this region. Yes, Gerber provides lots of tools to do your job and succeed, but with minimal training/ support. I do have faith that should i ever leave, i can always come back though.

    Cons

    This is the 2nd review i've done, in the past 2 months, after just over 10 years employment with Gerber. My last review was pretty glowing, but in the interim, the estimator pay scale has changed yet AGAIN and it is NOT better. This pay is not competitive with other local MSOs in the market, and most employees are not happy with it. I dont know who changed it or why but it stinks, and the amount of work and effort you have to put in to break even to come close to what we were making previously is not worth it. I've seriously considered other outside offers recently, and it hurts that after so many devoted years i'd be in the position of leaving a job that i've considered "home" for so long but i dont feel that senior mgmt has a clue or very much cares, as long as the bottom dollar looks good, as long as they are bonusing and as long as Gerber continues to generate revenue for acquisitions. Also much of the equipment is way out-dated or broken, and the office computers and server is a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Explore all pay options before making changes, reach out to employees for feedback, and check different markets for comparison and ensure that the pay IS competitive.

    Pros

    The bosses are lenient with time off for family things like stuff with kids at school, Dr appointments wtf

    Cons

    You never know what your pay is going to be, in changes constantly, you can make 3k on pay period and 900 the next. Training sucks, they expect you to WOW and be the best yet they can't train very well.

    Advice to Management

    Train your people and don't make promises you can't keep.

    Pros

    Keeps you busy. Daytime work hours.

    Cons

    They have small wages but want you to buy your own tools. They pile on the work and have you do more than your own job. The cheat you out of vacation you earned.

    Advice to Management

    Don't pay for anything for Gerber. They will not pay you back. Don,t be buddy buddy with a few and turn your back on other employees.

    Gerber retains employees of shops they buy

    Corporate atmosphere, employees are just a number.

    Employees need hands on training on company time, not webinars.
