Default Please do not support these dealerships (US)

At least not until the corporation that owns them better supports their sub management employees. Especially their technicians. Lithia Motors wants to be America's Choice for Car and Truck sales and service, but they want to do it at the expense of the people who work for them.

Working for a high end marque, having gone through the training i went through, i should be making a decent living, with benefits that wouldn't leave me wondering what the hell i'm going to do if something happens.

But no. Since arriving at this dealership, two techs have quit. Both switched careers. One of them is making more money working on forklifts.

Most of the techs have 2nd jobs to support themselves, because it just isn't possible to make a living turning wrenches on these cars. Frankly, that is so far below acceptable i'm beside myself in disbelief. I can't see any reason why a career in which the demand far outweighs the supply.

I'm living at home and i still can't get any money saved because there's barely enough coming in to cover my bills, which are less than 1,000/mo. Right now, I am looking at 2 possibilities because of this. Neither of which i am happy about. Either stick it out and hope it gets better, and nothing happens to where i have to try and use the cut rate insurance that a corporation which owns 106 dealers enveloping 30 marques, is "giving" us. Insurance that will barely cover anything serious, and supplemental dental which is only accepted by 4 dentists in this area, none of which are accepting new patients, and get a second job so that i can save something and move out before my girlfriend comes up; Or switch marques and risk making even less as an entry level tech. At this point the only other marque i feel like working for is Ferrari.

This is inexcusable from any corporation and it's customer's need to know what they are condoning by continuing to patronize these dealerships.

So please, stop supporting Lithia Motors until they start taking better care of the employees that make their business possible.
