Support from management
Do as I say, not as I do from managers. 3 Service managers and 2 GM's for dealership in 6 months, lost 8 technicians in that time as well. Not well run.
Attitude towards older colleagues
There are several older employees there who are retiree's and are given bull work to do while younger employee stand with hands in pockets. They are very much unappreciated and chastised by some.
Office / Work Environment
Rat and mouse droppings all around in employee bathroom for 7 mos I was there....floors in work areas never ever mopped, dust, and very dirty working environment for staff on lower floors.
Dealership mismanaged in many respects. Kneejerk decisions absent proper examination of situation. High employee turn around attrition rate. 3 service managers and 2 GM's in 6 months....8 techs left.
Heavy beams leaned against wall teetering on falling on head, garage door spring is worn, will not hold door up so falls on head. Items stacked higher than OSHA allows, flammables stored near or close to exits, noise levels in work areas higher than typical even for a shop, poor ventilation for shop and parts dept employee areas. Floor areas in parts dept have wires across floor instead of being run through overhead tripping you, parts and items strewn across floor areas to trip over. Railing on back exit loose from wall, large stones by showroom rear door used to prop open door are commonly in walk area to trip over ( instead of having a proper door prop ) mouse droppings on floor in employee bathroom for over 7 months... wash basin in service area only has handle for HOT water so hands can be scolded. Air compressor is right next to you where you work making crap load of noise and it is almost always running.
Suggestions for improvement
- Get some real managers who know WTF they are doing....
