Automobile Detailer Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Automobile Detailer in Patterson:
"Just look somewhere else."
This place depends on a crew of employees to get the job done, except the most important department, which is detailing. This company believes in milking its employees out of every ounce of effort and hard work in the service department, wth no reward, in order to keep payroll down and bottom line up. In doing so, the detail shop and department has become a laughable, disgusting, and down right unprofessional environment to work in. There is no proper ventilation, therefore when working with the diesel powered pressure washer, exhaust fumes build up above the shop, creating a layer of diesel exhaust clouds above the shop. When the hot summer days come around, temperature can exceed well into the triple digits while outside is below the triple digit mark. Communication does not existent between sales and service, creating a hectic and disorganized functionality, meaning when detailing a vehicle there is no knowing whether another vehicle is coming or the current job can be done properly.
