Where Are Safelite AutoGlass’ New Jobs?

A recent call by Safelite for more automotive glass technicians gives a clue as to where the company feels their growth will be located in the next year or so.

Safelite AutoGlass has already hired 800 AGRR technicians to meet demand this year and plans to hire an additional 235 more this summer. The hottest market for hiring is Phoenix, Ariz. followed by Boston, Denver, Long Island, N.Y., San Antonio and Washington, D.C. (which are each adding 20 positions). Scranton, Pa., comes in next, followed by Eastern Florida, San Francisco and Western Florida.

  1. It’s no wonder Safelite is hiring more people in these markets. They are able to gather all of the market information to make informed, intelligent decisions on where they could do better because all of us have to call them and give them all our market information. A few analysts can take a look and, presto, they know where to send more help.

    Pretty cool – for them.

    Ultimately not so cool for us.

    Too bad the original idea was only able to get off the ground because the business plan involved bankruptcy to absolve themselves of debt and rental obligations to many of the local shops they bought out in the 1980s and 90s in order to gain the market share.
