Started my job last Friday

10 posts in this topic

So anyways I got the job detailing cars and started last Friday. It was mostly a learning experience, but basically my job conists of inspecting the new cars that just came off the car hauler to make sure they don't have any damage, finding new cars on the lot that need to be washed and washing them, waxing/cleaning the inside of people's cars who have made appointments for detailing jobs, and checking the "spindle" to see if any salespeople have requests for cars to be washed if they have customers coming to look at a certian vehicle. I also dust off the cars in the showroom every morning.

It's pretty easy and the time goes by a lot faster than I thought it would, and the salary is pretty good for what I do (IMO). I'm going to put a CAI in the GTO (the stock one sucks) and then save the rest for college hopefully.

ocn: Yeah, that's the cool part about it. I got to drive 3 Tahoes and an STS (those were the cool ones) and a bunch of Malibus and Impalas, and two Cobalts. I'm hoping I'll get to drive a Corvette to the gas station some day, but I'm not going to count on it.

The Tahoes corner better and feel smaller than my mom's TB EXT.

Please don't take this personally, but the TB EXT was an absolute pig.

Yeah, I don't like driving it too much either, but I guess my mom thinks it's ok. They actually bought it over the GMT800 Tahoe (which is what I wanted them to get instead) but they liked how it handeled and drove better. Too bad the 900s weren't out then.

There's a replica job up for grabs about 20ish miles from me at a Chevy dealership.. I'm going to call them tomorrow and see what's up.

I did basically the same job at the local chrysler dealer this last winter. It was a ton of fun. I was working with a lot of fun people, which made it not seem so much like work. Congrats on the job.
