General Sales Manager Mike Weinert on changes to recruitment:
"We have had success in recruiting from our customer base. We do an email blast and have received some great employees from our happy customers."
Weinert on rewarding employees and showing them they are valued:
"We do contests that involve NFL games, pool tournaments with the staff and dinners via limo to five-star restaurants."
Weinert on helping employees develop a career path:
"Each employee is different. If one has a desire to do or be more, we sit down and discuss how we can help achieve their goals."
Weinert on making work schedules more balanced or flexible:
"We are closed Sundays and only open until 7 p.m. during the week. If an employee works a Saturday, they get a weekday off."
Weinert on compensation:
"For our sales departments, we have shifted from a true commission structure to a 'flat' payout per unit. It is a tiered system that also includes volume bonuses."
