Anyone know of any local (car) shops hiring a service writer/ service manager?


Please let me know and I'll have him apply there.

i made 6% of everything i sold there approx 125k in sales a month so u do the math ..

i know guys in tysons making 120k and yes the good techs make approx 150k at ourisman. 26-31 an hr x85-110hrs a week it adds up... if they have a good writer (head swelling)

im in annapolis md now making over 75k with less hrs less headache and much better clientele sooooo... but the stress is why i want to pursue something different

sorry tanya for getting off the topic but really have him call him and again tysons is
really a good choice if possible

The service departments at most dealerships are what keeps the store afloat. I know in my store if it were not for the service department, this place probally would of gone under years ago.
