In the last two years, Automotive News has had the pleasure of identifying and honoring 200 top dealerships in North America.

We've called them the Best Dealerships to Work For -- as identified by store employees.

The people we've met, and the stories that have been told, have been remarkable.

We've learned about the Friendship Family Fund at Friendship Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge-Ram of Bristol, Tenn., where employees contribute part of their paychecks to help colleagues in times of need. And the flexible hours, tuition reimbursement and gym subsidies at Capitol Cadillac-Chevrolet-Subaru in Salem, Ore. And Warren Henry Jaguar in Miami, where long-term employment and loyalty are the norm.

We have identified leaders. And we will find more.

Now in its third year, Best Dealerships to Work For is a program that measures satisfaction through a confidential survey of employers and employees.

Automotive News is partnering with Best Companies Group to identify dealerships that have excelled in creating quality workplaces.

To be eligible for consideration, a dealership must:

  • Be a new-vehicle store.
  • Have at least 25 employees working in the United States or Canada.
  • Have been in business at least a year.

Each dealership must register as a single rooftop. Dealerships that are part of a group should register individually.

The registration deadline is March 21.

Is your store on this year's list? It should be. c
