Jobbers offer advice in this issue of CARS

Canadian jobbers had their turn to voice their thoughts about how shop owners are running their businesses. And they have concerns.

It’s all laid out in the latest issue of CARS magazine.

In the Annual Jobber Survey, jobbers overwhelmingly raised red flags around the training — or lack thereof — taking place with many of their shop partners. That includes management training for owners and technical training for staff.

Flip through the feature to see how high their level of concern is. Plus check out their responses when asked about key shop pain points like parts quality and selling parts at the same price to retail consumers.

We have columnist Greg Aguilera talking about the right time to take your shop from a one-person operation to a multi-employee venture.

Zakari Krieger examines the 80/20 rule system and why it may be a great idea in theory, your jobber parts are actually putting themselves at risk if they keep to that plan.

After an unseasonably warm winter for much of Canada, Erin Vaughan writes about how the weather shouldn’t dictate your business. If you’re planning things right, you should have a steady stream of customers, no matter the season.

Then check out our On The Road sections where we visited the Worldpac STX event in Nashville and Lordco Trade Show in Vancouver.

And there’s more, like Letter, News, Class Act, By the Number and more. Check out the issue today!
