    People have been sticking with the cars they have, rather than buying new ones, amid the economic uncertainty of the past couple of years. Repair shops and service departments have been doing a brisk business and have been hiring to keep up with it.

  • How automotive service businesses can drive great people to apply - Nadine Jerome

    I think of the modern workplace as a Petri dish – a walling in of ideas that are maniacally forming, dividing, multiplying, bouncing off and absorbing into each other.
