COO Brian Heney on changes to recruitment:
"We are constantly looking for good employees, as we just finished a large building project for Ford and anticipate our business increasing significantly. Our new employees do not need to have any previous automotive experience — we simply need good people that show they have some drive and desire, and we will train them in an effort to make them successful."
Heney on helping employees develop a career path:
"We love to promote from within and help anyone that shows interest in advancing their career. We train daily, and as we are part of a larger group, our employees are able to shadow people in other stores and have more opportunities for advancement across our platform."
Heney on making work schedules more balanced or flexible:
"We offer our employees as much flexibility as possible in terms of scheduling. We are a hardworking, family-owned and -operated dealership and fully understand the time constraints we all endure when it comes to balancing our personal and professional lives."
Heney on compensation:
"We pay well and offer one of the best benefit packages around through Blue Cross Blue Shield as well as a well managed 401(k) and clothing program."
