-8 am to 5 pm Monday to Friday, when it gets busier sometimes 8 am to 8 pm one day a week, and every other Saturday for a half day

-came in to the position not knowing anything about detailing a vehicle, I was taught everything I needed to know and eventually moved in to main detail where I was taught skills I never thought I would ever have to learn (ie: buff and wax)


-I found it a great place to work, obviously you're always going to run in to people that you don't like and you don't get along with, but you'll have that no matter where you work (it's a part of life)


-the hardest part of the job was learning how to detail the cars in the specific amount of time that was given (and yes it can be done, most of the time depending oh how dirty the vehicle was when it came in)


-most enjoyable part of the job was definitely the people that I worked with in the department, for the most part I got along with everyone


-management of all departments make themselves available with an open door policy if you have questions, concerns, or just need someone to listen about absolutely anything
Pros
provide lunches and treats for jobs well done
Cons
like anywhere else, moody people, detail department not climate controlled so it gets hot in the summer, shoveling snow in the winter is not very enjoyable

If you haven’t yet, look up Stricklands Exposed on google - it will tell you everything you need to know
Pay structure is terrible and they try to buy you in on the “salaried” pay which is bs if you work for 25 percent commission you get a ton more, sometimes making over 1200 a car at Stricklands you make about 180-220 Don’t do it....

Pros
Free lunches for sure (HUGE), Good people to work with.
Cons
Longer hours not a lot of Vacation time.

Strickland’s should be researched further than this page. It would seem to me that there has only been positive reviews left on this account.
Applicant beware.
Pros
Great place to master sales
Cons
Hours, constant turnover of staff, objections

I learned a lot... mostly what not to do.
Train the best and keep the rest is a slogan I have often heard about Strickland’s.

They post “a 50 hour work week is not a long work week” in the training area, but if you want to succeed, you’d better be willing to put in 60-75 hours per week.

Free food on Saturdays is a perk, that’s about it.

They teach under promise and over deliver... if only they’d practice what they preach.

The turnover of staff is astonishing.
Pros
Coffee is for closers... free lunch on Saturdays & only scheduled for 44 hours per week
Cons
44 hours per week is not even close to realistic, More more more mentality, High turnover in staff, No chance of moving up within the company.
