Good place to work
It was an experience to work at a shop like this. You learn from the bad and take from the good . However the managers where inexperienced and asked wild things from you.

No training very micro managed
Probably worst job I have ever had. Regional manager only cares about his opinion. I recieved 0 training at all had to learn on my own. Was given the keys to the store and that was the extent of training. Lots of nepotism. Hiring relatives with no experience. Moves managers around store to store constantly. I have taken several management courses and this company goes against every thing I have been taught. Very poorly run. If you have a job keep it if you don't keep looking

Racist managers are protected
Manager was racist. Not sure how they kept their job. No consequence for their comments. HR not accommodating or helpful. Must do other people's job to do yours.
Cons
Long hours, no teamwork

Fun workplace with staffs are wonderful haven't issues. :)
Lots of Challenges to work on the job site and give clients to a ride their work or home / pick up when their vehicle are ready to go.

The most enjoyable part of job. :)


Also, when the staff cannot be able to go i.e. parts somewhere to pick up and brought to the shop either from Boyd shop to Boyd shop pick up any kinds of needs for shop either delivery drop them off.

Avoid this company
Terrible company to work for. They hire inexperienced managers who have no clue about Autobody, unorganized, cheap, and don’t care about the employees. Instead of giving raises to well deserved workers they will say they’re on a “wage freeze” and then they will hire a new person they don’t even need.

Awesome
It was a pleasure working for the company, I really enjoyed the friendly environment of my co-workers and I would surely recommend anyone who starts out as a detailer that they can move from detailer to mechanic or painter.

Horrible work environment
There is a reason employees do not stay at Boyd.
The work environment is toxic, the upper management is always on your case about doing a “better” job when they never provided any logical training from the start. General managers are over worked, stressed and never end up staying.

All the employees with Boyd never have any good things to say, and that’s not a company I want to work for. Not being proud of where you work really blows. Managers need to treat their staff better, maybe give raises once and awhile instead of every 5 years, and quit treating their employees like numbers instead of genuine people.

They are a numbers shop
But they want decent quality, too. .... from dated equipment and tired employees. No raise in over the year I worked there. (Granted i don't pull the $ from the insurance company, but i can make someone shocked at what their car can look like, after the body and paint is done. ... it's a team effort! But, so much for that.)

Look elsewhere, not worth it
They train new employees very poorly then blame you for not doing your job correctly while offering no help or guidance to correct the problems. Set you up to fail if they don't like you. Management will talk about your personal problems with other employees and does little to stop harassment in the shop. Very poor experience with them and do not reccomend them as an employer. Left a good job for this opportunity only to regret it. Don't waste your time and energy working for them. Toxic work environment.
Pros
None
Cons
Poor upper management, poor training

uncomfortable high pressure environment
bad place to work. all you get is pressure to produce work, even when there is no work in the shop all management does is panic and put pressure on the technicians, very uncomfortable and confusing environment to work in. shops are outdated as is their management style and practices
Pros
leaving for the day to go home
Cons
regional management

horrible company
regional manager in Manitoba is a total control freak and has absolutely zero people skills or any understanding of the auto body repair process.. the assistant is even worse, thinks shes a manager coming around yelling at everyone for the smallest mistakes, it contributes nothing to helping or improving what problems are there. Its like a 3rd world country in their shops, very dirty, dusty, poorly lit, spray booth leaks paint into the shop , old outdated equipment, and just a ton of pressure and panic to produce.

they will come and constantly tell you you aren't going fast enough or doing things wrong but offer no guidance or support to improve the situation because they dont know what they are doing or how to help.


if you value yourself and take pride in what you do and actually want to take your career to the next level , do not work here. there are lots of options for the autobody industry, dont allow yourself to be treated badly by these people at boyd.
Pros
none
Cons
no work, high pressure, lack of respect, no leadership, getting yelled at

No respect for staff with commendable capabilities who can help the company prosper ahead.

Very biased and lots of favouritism.

Just a number
Boyd cares about 1 things
Profits

They do not care about their staff. They treat employees like they are disposable and hence the reason they are CONTINUOUSLY running ads looking for techs. They are a revolving door. In my opinion BOYD should focus more on keepinf employess happy instead of trying to replace them. Quality in workmanship has dropped. I went into a shop the was owned privately and within 2 years of Boyds taking over the shop is run down, dirty, unorganized and empty

IMO I would not work again here unless it was an absolute last resort
Pros
Good group of technicians
Cons
Poor mamagement to run the shop

Temporary Position through agency
This position was temporary until I found a full time position with another company. Less than 3 months assisting the payroll department.

This position would be suited for more of a junior payroll administrator
