‘McGee University’ Program Provides Continued Ed to Employees

McGee Auto Service & Tires, with locations in Daytona Beach and Tampa, Fla., now offers its techs a chance to advance their career goals with the new McGee University program.

McGee University is a way for technicians to make the step up from General Maintenance Technician to Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Certified Master Technician status.

In order for a tech to be considered for enrollment in McGee University, he or she must be a member of the McGee team for at least a year’s time; at which point the person may be nominated by store managers on the basis of drive, initiative and work ethic. The next part of the screening process is for nominees to write an essay detailing their interest in participating in the program, and then interview at the McGee corporate office. Eight candidates will then be selected.

For each month of the year-long process (beginning this month), candidates will have one week of instruction and training at a hotel, with three weeks’ worth of study and bookwork. At the end, all participants will be ASE certified Master Technicians.

“ASE Master Technician certification is a powerful tool for any automotive tech, and an important career milestone,” the dealership said in a statement. “It means a broader knowledge base that can open many doors career-wise, making a Master Technician more valuable to a company. McGee Tire & Auto Service wants to help its employees in their professional development.”

McGee earned honors as a finalist in the 2012 Tire Review Top Shop Award.
