Aw, c'mon. I've heard AAmco has one of the best training programs of all the chain transmission stores. Trade schools take 2 years, colleges take the same time. AAmco does it in one week! That's intensive! After they graduate, they go back to the store and can train the other employees - maybe even be a manager!
Something I've always wondered - a serious question - Why do most good auto tranny guys have Southern accents?
