Lots of beers after work.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
High expectations quick turnover little chance to move up in the company. Poor quality repairs were often passed onto the customers. Cars are repaired in an assembly line sort of system little care was given for hidden damage. Body techs often dumped more work onto the preppers. Paint and primer usage is recorded and evaluated constantly for cost saving purposes.

Pros

Free lunch sometimes, training & updating.

Fast paced business casual enviroment

I have very much enjoyed working for Herbers. it offered a relaxed enviroment with fast paced work through the busy winter months. Your days fly by most of the time. My co-workers were all great to work with and the management style is wonderful. She is hard working and professional, but still friendly and relatable.

Good place. Poor management

Great place to work. Great culture. 3 managers in 3 years. That was a problem. It was difficult to maintain consistency with the many management changes. Painter had no say about prosucts and application plocedures

Pros

Good pay. Good culture

Cons

Very fast pace. No input

The body shop people were very young in age and socially with exception to 1or2 people

Nobody gave praise for a job well done. Asked to do jobs out of sequence. For instance cleaning a truck only to find out it had to go to kal tire. Then having to wash it again when it came back. I sometimes washed the same truck 2 to 3 times.

Average

Looking for somewhere that pays flat rate. They do not pay us properly here and it’s not paying the bills. Decent management but poor work quality for the employees for the most part

We appreciate the 4 start rating and your feedback. As a current employee, we definitely encourage you to speak with the proper channels about your concerns. We never want any of our stakeholders to feel as if they have poor work quality. We believe that in order to make a business successful, open communication is key. Thank you again for your review.

Hard on the employee

Employee rotation is high due to lack of respect and no flat rate pay structure for the refinish side. Sick days are not respected. Management is too concerned about their own bonuses and not the employee.

Cons

No human relations.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Our pay structure in the refinish department is designed to encourage teamwork within the department, and we’re sorry that wasn’t your experience. We do try to respect our stakeholders’ sick leave requirements, as outlined in our sick day policy. Our Management Team is consistently striving to make the employee experience a good one – if you feel like this was not the case, please feel free to email us confidentially with more information at hr@herbersautobody.com.

Good place to work

Everyone seems to be very friendly and welcoming. I was able to learn how a bodyshop operates. I would recommend this place to anybody looking to get into this trade.

great Job

Lots to learn in short period of time. Get ready for long hours and cold or hot weather conditions, and Hard manual labor. If your new to the auto body trade I would defiantly recommend this place under the pretense that you're gonna work hard and are prepared for anything

Pros

1 Hour Lunches

Cons

8 hours, Strict, younger people are not taken seriously

Nice people to work with but

No job/life balance. Takes forever to advance if you ever even do. Management was biased about who got promoted and hired new people above wages of people there a long time with zero experience.

Pros

Good benefits

Cons

Long hours would not let you take breaks and low pay
