      I worked at Kadel's Auto Body

      Pros

      There is no pros for working here.

      Cons

      Took away dental coverage, no raises, laid off employees and work you twice as hard. No overtime, expressed concerns to HR and nothing happened. Outsourced Ap and IT and let long term employees go. Nowhere to advance in company.

      Advice to Management

      Get rid of Braden. He has no compassion for employees.Upper management could careless about employees.

      I have been working at Kadel's Auto Body full-time (Less than a year)

      Pros

      I work in the Corporate Services center, so I've had the opportunity to interact with most of the upper level management and they've been open and available to me. They seem to be working diligently to keep the company running smoothly and in a positive direction. I've seen a large number of people promoted from within the company, too. It's a good place to be if you're creative because there's a culture of openness...

        I worked at Kadel's Auto Body full-time (Less than a year)

        Pros

        Company paid health insurance for the employee only, not dependents.

        Cons

        When you walk in on a Monday, the long-term employees say, "Four more days." When I was hired, I was so happy to have a job! And that the company paid my health insurance was such a bonus to me. However, it didn't take long to discover that those who had worked there , especially the long-term employees, were so downtrodden and were already wanting the week to be over. And as stated, I was very happy to have my position...

        Advice to Management

        Some employees felt the Pres/CEO knew about this behavior, some stated they he didn't know. However, the first floor employees stated this was well known by them and I want to tell the President, "Shame on you" for allowing this, or for being so disconnected that this type of behavior exists in your corporate office. This is the largest autobody chain in the Pacific Northwest, 18 shops now and adding more in the new...
