What is your parts ordering process?

Currently, appraisers do initial scrub and send parts orders to our in-house parts team who will scrub a second time against vin and either place orders for in-house OEs (wholesale parts for some OEs are also in-house), and other orders are sent to our affiliated dealers. Parts are brought to tech bays when received.

What is your policy on side work?

No side work in-house

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

Great existing team with no large egos. We are very protective about who we add to the mix and value high character as much, or more, than the skill of the individual.

Do you offer any skills training or continuing education opportunities?

Ongoing paid training for all OEs we are certified in along with paid icar training and we would be happy to discuss assisting with any other ambitions with training and/or development.

Can you describe opportunities for career growth at your business?

As a large dealership group with 55+ dealers and multiple collision facilities, there are ample opportunities in-house or within our dealership group to grow with the company.

Can you describe your performance review process?

Annually or on-demand

What type of safety training is required?

We take in-house safety seriously and any training required would be complied with immediately.

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

We have partnerships with multiple local vocational schools and have numerous success stories. We are fully invested in growing our family in this industry and pair younger/inexperienced techs with some of our best, and they lead by example with patience.

How does your shop get involved with the local community?

Local vocational programs, tech schools, and trades.

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

We take full advantage of any opportunities afforded to us by our partners in the schools.

Do you phone screen applicants before doing in-person interviews?

I would always prefer to meet in person. I think it's important for both sides to be clear on the position and what each party is looking to achieve. The facility speaks for itself, but we want to ensure the fit works for us both.

What do your in-person interviews entail?

General questioning with the sharing of background information and future expectations from both parties.

Do you perform background checks, drug screening, or personality tests before hiring an applicant?

We do standard drug testing and background checks.

Not at this time, although questions are raised regarding any owned certifications.

within 1-2 business days

Approximately how long does the full hiring process take from submitting the application to the time of the hiring decision?

This depends on the individual, but generally 3-5 days
