Sales Manager Brent Schettler on changes to recruitment:
"We are always reaching out further than just Des Moines. We are contacting people directly instead of the career site."
Schettler on rewarding employees and showing them they are valued:
"We give Customer Satisfaction and Sales Volume Awards. We also do Employee of the Month for hardworking employees. We celebrate team milestones and records."
Schettler on helping employees develop a career path:
"We are constantly trying to help our staff improve and get them into new positions. As a team, we teach how to grow."
Schettler on making work schedules more balanced or flexible:
"The schedules can vary from day shift and night shift. We offer one day off during the week, and Sundays are off for everyone. We do this because we want our staff to have time for their personal life."
Schettler on compensation:
"We use goal-orientated bonuses, based on previous improvements, to let them grow instead of standard 25 percent commission. We offer demo allowances based on a minimum monthly car average."
