Can you describe opportunities for career growth at your business?

We do our best to promote within and allow employees to grow into the positions they are striving for. We have had some technicians move into the shop foreman roles. Almost every single manager here has worked their way up to be in the role they are in now. A good thing to ask tenured co-workers / managers is where they started.... this really encourages ones motivation to succeed.

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

Hands on learning is one of the most influential ways for one to continue to advance their skills. Having a team of experienced Audi technicians and foremans allows them to get insight and knowledge from some of the best mentors around.... their own team. We are a family run dealer and we like to treat our co-workers just the same. We are here to support eachother as a team and always find ways to learn / teach something new each day.
