  • Verify What the Scan Tool is Telling You
    Sunday, October 1, 2017 12:00 AM
    Every now and then we run across a vehicle that has a concern we have seen many times before and we almost automatically try to diagnose it by memory; it's almost like a reflex we develop over time. Of course as we all know too well, this can lead you down the wrong path if you stray away from complete testing and verification.

  • New-Employee Orientation: Inspect What You Expect
    Thursday, August 10, 2017 11:00 AM
    Hiring a new employee begins a relationship with someone who was, more than likely, a total stranger to you not very long ago. Even if you conducted a very well planned interview process you still don’t know very much about this person and he or she probably knows little about you and the way your company functions. Without many preconceived notions, this is a great time for you to make a strong impression on your new hire.
