    I worked at Gerber Collision & Glass full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Two monitors for the computer at your station

    Cons

    Long hours, emails continually telling us how bad we were doing...Allstate agents who continually came in to give negative feedback. Many rules to follow, new information that was overwhelming to learn, in the midst of very poorly run business.

    Advice to Management

    Employment presented as an "opportunity," but after working there for just a few days, learned that working there was like being sucked into a vacuum. Every day seeing how bad we were doing, via negative emails from upper management, was VERY discouraging. I felt like there was no way we were going to pull ourselves up out of the hole we were in. Besides my own work, my general manager kept giving me his work, insinuating there would be more to come, to get himself out of his own hole...this was very discouraging. I was new myself and was not able to keep up with my own tasks. If there is a huge problem with one of the locations, do not bring in new people to fix. Use the seasoned people to attempt to right the situation.

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

    Pros

    I really like the team atmosphere. They're really focused on making sure each employee is heard. I love that there's a good level of support here. They give us the tools to do our job and expect good quality work, which I believe we do.

    Cons

    The benefits are little expensive, but they have good options.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Gerber is a great place to work and only getting better.

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

    Pros

    Good and cheaper benefits. They pay 100 percent of your normal wage for the same average amount of hours for vacation which has been rare as a flat rate tech.

    Cons

    They are a corporation with endless rules and regulations. Their hourly wage is typically lower then what you may be able to get elsewhere however with their processes if and when they are followed correctly then you can turn more hours then at other shops.

    Advice to Management

    Follow the correct procedures and pay people what they are worth and place more value in each and every employee especially when they are skilled. You guys have lost a lot of good employees who were specialized and skilled because you couldn’t pay then .50 an hour more.

    I worked at Gerber Collision & Glass full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Large company with great benefits. They wanted me to write twenty words but I had to stretch to find 5.

    Cons

    A very untrustworthy company. They cheat you out of your time by writing double estimates.
    Upper management has no clue about the business and is only concerned with pleasing the shareholders. Gerber took a skilled trade business and made it comparable to Wal Mart when compared to other shops. Cheap parts, cheaper labor, no remorse for the customer and billions for the shareholders.

    Advice to Management

    Stop stealing money from the Technicians. If you offer bonus incentives stop finding ways not to pay them to the employees that meet their goals.
