Searching for a new career?
Consider joining the DB Orlando team!
DB Orlando Collision was named one of best workplaces of 2022 by FenderBender Magazine. FenderBender is the leading progressive publication serving repair shop owners and operators by sharing the stories of real world successes to over 42,000 print recipients. The article centers on founder Drew Bryant and the positive work culture he has created since he opened the shop in 2011 after years in the restaurant industry. For the past nine years, Bryant has worked hard to create a successful business with a credible and ethical reputation.
But Bryant isn’t motivated by profit: he’s committed to nurturing talent and building community. "Stop chasing targets and quotas,” says Bryant. “And work to determine the potential of the individuals within your operation." That drive to help realize individual potential is what led him to engage and educate a new generation of auto professionals with an apprenticeship program. After seeing that the local schools in the area lacked technical training programs, Bryant established an apprenticeship program at DB Orlando Collision in 2019. The program accepts two apprentices a year, providing them tools and hands-on training with members of his staff. Many of those apprentices have gone on to work at DB Orlando full time. "My experience in this program has been life-changing, to be honest,” says former apprentice and current employee Chris Mangal. “Under the team's mentorship, I have learned so much from my peers in such a short period. I love every second of what I do now and am so grateful to be a part of such a driven group of professionals."
DB Orlando commitment to developing in-house talent extends beyond their internship program. The company offers ample opportunities for employees to learn new skills through training and mentorship and has a philosophy of promoting from within. In addition to press recognition, DB Orlando Collision has received hundreds of five star reviews from its customers.
