    So another Lithia BS. I apply somewhat for a Service Advisor Position and they tell me I am not right for the job because I wear my emotions on my sleeve. Which is somewhat true, because to be a "Back" Counter Parts Advisor you deal with technicians all day that do nothing but flick you crap all the time, so you flick it back, sometimes it gets a little out of hand and you get pissed off... Like when a technician chucks a part at you... But as far as customer service goes, all of us have always kept our cool to the customers and made them very happy... (even Dallas... "sometimes" ) Anyway, now all of a sudden because the General Manager wants a parts advisor to write the lube bay tickets they want me to take the job... I am pretty much at the point where I am going to say fuk you and join the electrician program..

    Bo, Peterson Machine is looking for a Rental Equipment Coordinator. I interviewed, but the pay is significantly less than I make now. They were talking 12-13 an hour, but I don't know what you make now. It's a thought, and gets you out of automotive.

    Me loose my temper and go over the counter at a tech?......i dont remember that, i guess thats why they call it blind rage j/c. The funny thing about what you described is that i was told the exact same thing when i applied for a writer position. Dont take it personal just remember that when they shoot you down they are just using the "approved" terminalogy for saying no.

    The thing that pisses me off the most tho, is that they didnt shoot me down. He was exploring different options and then said ok nobody else is better than you so I guess if you want to compete for it, go ahead. Guess what.. No.

    No, I am almost finished with Manager trainning and I am to a point where my salary is 2-300 dollars a month less than Mikes. I deal with a lot of the problems and a lot of the stress of the department but still not near the amount that Mike does. So why do I want to add 50% more stress to my life every day for 2-300 dollars more a month? It isnt worth it. But I can go to less stress in bottom of the barrell Service Advisor, make my way up that ladder for 1000 more dollars a month on my guarantee. Plus if I made Service Manager one day. Dave makes over 75gs a year on a bad year. 100gs a year on average year. Mike is lucky to clear 40gs.

    It was still on the lot, so I'm guessing that's a negative.

    I really want a sedan over a wagon. I went and talked to the owner of AMC and he is looking for a sedan. I am working on a Sonic Yellow with SOSVM, I doubt I will get it since they wont come down from 18999.

    Yeah, sedans have way more options for aftermarket parts. Especially the suspension. I wonder if that sonic yellow at SOSVM is the one that was for sale by owner on Willamette?

    If I were looking to buy a new car I'd probably head up to Portland. Everyone down here wants way too much compared to what they usually go for up there.
