Koons of Manassas Honda Informative - Beware of greedy koons dealerships

Review by mechanicforhire on 2011-04-02
MANASSAS, VIRGINIA -- Just some quick info. This dealership is horrendous in its treatment of employees. I worked here for almost a year and I can speak from first hand experience. The service director is a jerk. He is the rudest and meanest boss in the area. He undermines his techs and even steals from them. A quick example.. I worked there I bumped a car in the park lot that was parked at a bad angle and I couldn't get it out of the space I scratched the bumper. I told them about it and apologize which most techs wouldn't even say anything. I was charged not only almost 400 to fix bumper and this was a tiny scratch and we have a body shop at dealership. I also was charged for the work I did to the car and the parts which is not right or even legal. And to make matters worse I broke my elbow due to someone leaving oil out and I slipped in it, they tried to deny my workers comp and then never paid it, I had to get on the phone with the employment commission and get them to threaten Koons until they payed my bills. I hate them so much and I just want to warn anyone that would use their services. I feel bad for everyone that works there, if they treat their own employees that bad think of what they do to customers... Food for Thought.

Your upset you damaged a car and you had to pay for it is not a reason for anyone to avoid this dealership. If you were injured on the job consult an attorney. You'll finds a thousand of them in the yellow pages.

agree with above. Workmens comp is administered by your state, not the employer;.

Of course you are sore about being charged for damaging a vehicle while in their employ. That I understand because you could have easily not reported it unless someone else saw it and reported it instead.

Unless Virginia is different from every other state I'm aware of, Workman's Compensation is administrated by each state. Dan reminded you of that. A report of injury must be filed within I think 10 days for any employee injured on the job. Perhaps it depends on the state as to the time frame. The penalty is extremely steep for an employer failing to do so. From then on the workman's comp takes it on. The employer DOES NOT pay the bills, the insurance company does. Their premiums might increase but the final decision is with the insurance company not the employer. If the employer does not have workman's comp he is in big trouble period.

Your anger with the Service Director is an entirely different matter.
