What is your parts ordering process?

Using Xtime as our digital MPI process, the technician will use a shop provided tablet to take pictures and videos of recommended items to repair, add recommended line items with a description and photos, look up labor times with VW's labor guide, alldata, or SPG, then send the estimate to parts. Parts will then look up the components and price any additional necessary hardware, provide ETA's, a quote number, and send it to the service advisor.

What is your policy on side work?

We allow side work as long as it doesn't impact our shop and work flow.

Are there any other unique features of the work environment worth noting?

Being a technician can frankly, suck. We try to make it suck less by providing an atmosphere where people don't hate showing up to work, easy communication with management, offsetting warranty labor times with a customer pay multiplier on rough jobs, we push training so hard that the pay structure is based on you going to training initially, we help offset tool costs by allotting a certain amount of funds per year to our technicians, flexibility in terms of taking time off that's paid or unpaid, and we take care of each other.

Do you offer any skills training or continuing education opportunities?

We send our technicians through Volkswagen's certification process. Going to class is all based on the technicians drive to learn more. Volkswagen has started an Apprentice Program which is six months of training: One week per month. We participate in this program.

Can you describe opportunities for career growth at your business?

As we grow, we'll be looking to grow team leads to help offset our shop foreman's workload. If you're not enjoying being a technician or the career is causing too much bodily damage, we've grown technicians into parts & service advisors roles as well.

Can you describe your performance review process?

We do an annual performance review, going over Productivity and Efficiency, fix right first time, average survey score, and photos and videos taken.

What type of safety training is required?

Basic shop safety, electrical specialty training, and high voltage EV training. Recommend basic first aid & stop the bleed classes.

Can you describe how Techs work with and mentor younger techs?

We pair new technicians and non-certified technicians with our one A technician, two Master technicians, and Master Foreman for a month, then we rotate each person to learn each style our top techs have so they can take the good habits and skills from them and learn to build their own process.

How does your shop get involved with the local community?

We participate in local clubs and events like Volktoberfest, hosting golf outings for cancer donations, and local grill outs!

Do you do anything with local high schools or tech schools to encourage more students to enter the profession?

We've officially partnered with the Area 31 Career Center. We've provided this beautiful 2018 Tiguan to the school program. We will be providing an OEM scan tool & OEM catalog for the students to learn and utilize while working on this vehicle. This is how we grow technicians in a field that is hurting: by bridging the gap.
