Pioneer Career Journeys

Michael's Story

Michael's Headshot

“My former job at another auto repair shop was the most toxic environment I have ever worked in. 7-day work weeks in a shop that advertised being open 99 hours a week, terribly dishonest business tactics, acceptance of substances on property, verbal abuse, you name it. I was ready to leave the industry, but thankfully I saw a CBA opening around the corner and looked into it.”

2001

Left previous auto repair shop & joined CBA as a Service Manager

“I was empowered and applauded every day for simply serving others and doing the right thing. I was given the opportunity to learn and develop my leadership under my Shop Owner’s mentorship. The shop was a culture with an overwhelming sense of community, service and support. We were a family. The environment at CBA allowed me to flourish and very quickly there was no doubt in my mind that this was the place I wanted to spend the rest of my career.”

2007

Became a CBA Franchisee

2018

Joined the CBA Home Office as Vice President, Operations

“My absolute favorite part of my job is, without question, my team. I have the honor and privilege to come to the office every day and work with men and women that inspire me to be better personally and professionally. My heart and passion is to be of service, and I can’t imagine getting to serve a more talented and caring group of businessmen and women than our shop owners and their shop teams.”

2007

Joined CBA as a Service Advisor

“When I started working at CBA, I knew immediately that this mechanic job was like none that I’d ever been a part of before. At other shops it was all business with little regard to ethics. Here, ethics are held to a high standard, and it’s about relationships, not just fixing cars.”

2010

Promoted to Service Manager

2015

Started Future Franchise Leadership Academy.

“I poured my heart into the FFLA program. This amazing opportunity allowed me to see the business through a completely different lens. My biggest takeaway was being able to see the bigger picture as a business owner and leader.”

2017

Became a Franchisee

“My role here is way bigger than just being an owner. My guys care for each other and care for our customers. Customers come to us because we are like a family. We know them by their first name and we talk to them about more than just car stuff. My advice to anyone is to look at your 100 year vision and choose an employer that shares your vision.”

Josh's Story

Josh's Headshot

“A month after I graduated college, I started at CBA and I haven’t stopped growing.”

2009

Joined CBA as a Service Writer

“When I started, there wasn’t a ton of formal training yet. I got to be a guinea pig for some of the early-era trainings that are now full-blown today. In addition, the Home Office had just started the coaching program so my Shop Owners relayed a lot of the information shared on coaching calls with me.”

2011

Promoted to Service Manager

“Around this time, CBA changed from a job to a long-term career path for me. As the Service Manager, the Shop Owners have a lot of trust and faith in you, which is very important. They were able to focus on growing the business instead of working in the business because they could rely on me. I felt a sense of responsibility for the wellbeing of my team and their families. My Shop Owners gave me the opportunity and trusted me to run the shop. They wanted me to grow, they poured into me and I wanted to make them proud.”

2016

Started Future Franchise Leadership Academy

“My favorite thing about CBA is that they want what’s best for you as a person, professionally and personally. They won’t hold you back from an opportunity that’s available to you, even if it means you grow beyond them. The FFLA program is a testament to that. My Shop Owners nominated me to a program that would eventually grow me out of their shop. But they wanted to see me continue to progress.”

2018

Became General Manager of a CBA location

“The company has literally changed my life, and my family’s life. I look back 10 years ago and I realize there’s a reason why we’re here. Now that I’m running my own shop, I have a huge opportunity to pay it forward. I’ve made it known that they are in a position to grow and be challenged. My mentality is: if my Service Manager is still my Service Manager in 3-5 years, I’m not doing something right. If I don’t pass it along and spread it, I’m not doing my job.”

Joe's Story

Joe's Headshot

“At the time, I was already a Master Certified Technician and very happy with where I was in my career. But CBA believed in me and saw a unique skillset and mindset that they wanted on their team.”

2014

Joined CBA as a Lead Master Technician

“My wife and I had been praying for me to be lead to a role where I could be both a teacher and a technician. While at our CBA Training Conference for Service Team and Technicians, I found out I was being recruited to join the Home Office on the AutoTech team. I was told “We need guys like you to help train and keep great techs. Let’s make it happen. With my Shop Owner’s blessing, I took the job and moved to Houston.”

2016

Joined the Home Office as a Technician Trainer

“When I came on board, we had an online place that Technicians could ask for help from industry experts and each other. It was fantastic, but now it’s truly an industry leading private collaboration platform that provides industry news, training, support and process driven repair procedures to assist the Technicians at CBA locations.”

2018

Promoted to Director, Technical Training

“CBA is unlike any company I have experienced in my career. They truly care about the person beyond the day to day grind of a job. They provide specialized training that develops your skills, not only as a technician but as a leader in the community. The value of that training and support is priceless. It may sound cheesy but I mean it. They want to set themselves and their team members apart from the rest of the industry.”

Matt's Story

Matt's Headshot

“Three months prior to joining CBA, I had just overcome drug abuse. It was time for a fresh start.”

2008

Joined CBA as a Technician with 5 ASE certifications

“The support I received from my Shop Owner was in the day-to-day, just encouraging me to better myself as a young tech and to get the training and confidence to become the best Technician that I could. He also became a personal friend and practically part of my family. He helped me grow from a young man into a Husband and a Father.”

2010

Reached Master Tech with 8 ASE certifications

“How to get the ASE certifications really varies in process by the Technician and the Employer. I chose a slower process, as I believe that getting a certification without the knowledge of applying the certification to your work is incorrect. It took me 8 years to achieve my Master certification. Which is ASE test A1-A8.”

2014

Promoted to Lead Technician and received L1 certification

“I was 13 years into my career when I got my L1 advanced technician certification and became a L1 Master Technician. I took and failed the test 3 times before I passed, but each time I learned where I personally was lacking in knowledge in my field and that helped me become a stronger Technician.”

2018

Joined the CBA Home Office as a Domestic Support Specialist

“The support I continually received from my Shop Owner, both professionally and personally, lead to me wanting to teach and train other technicians. Now, I’m part of an AutoTech support team that can provide technicians across our company on the job training that is critical to their growth. To have access to experienced Technicians who are there strictly to teach and train is priceless.”
