Weeks after the April 12 hailstorm hit San Antonio, Mission Mitsubishi still had an estimated two to three months of repair work ahead. "We are so overwhelmed," said General Manager Islam Hindash. "The simple task of running day-to-day operations and trying to keep people happy - that's very difficult to carry out."
Earlier this month, Mission - the nation's highest volume Mitsubishi retailer - got some relief through new hires. They included a body technician and an administrator to deal with customers and insurance companies. Hindash was looking to hire more, including painters.
"There are hundreds of thousands of dollars of outstanding work waiting to be completed," he said. "I've got 60 cars on the ground waiting for repairs."
