New hires at the floor and management level are always a welcome sight in the repair and service community, especially as hope dwindles during hard times for the industry. Colonial offers some advice, saying it “took the uncertainty caused by Covid-19 and decided to invest in its team, putting its customer service team and skilled technicians as a top priority.”
