Great co-workers, poor management.
Valet and Lube Technician (Current Employee) – Richmond, BC – 21 November 2016
As a Valet at Richmond Honda I was tasked primarily to perform alignment check with Hunter's quick-check machine. The job itself is not difficult by any means. However, I felt I was being micro-managed. I was torn by both management and coworkers as they had polar opposite opinions of how the department should be run. I felt I was playing a balancing act between keeping my service advisers happy, and meeting the very high quota given by my manager. Within the lot staff, I have seen a lot of turnovers and I feel it is due to a mixture of unmotivated lot staff and the inconsiderate feeling the manager gives off. What has kept me working here was my easy-going coworkers, the relatively high pay and the opportunity to use the shop after hours.
Lack of motivation, micro-management, hard-to-meet quota.
