President Tim Bergstrom on showing employees that they are valued: "Our biggest sale of the year is in June. Our general manager, sales consultants and F&I manager are given goals to achieve in that month, and if they meet them, the whole dealership is rewarded with a delicious steak and lobster lunch. A well-known local vendor caters the meal at our dealership and serves us using fine dinnerware and linens. Everyone helps, so everyone eats!"
John Hogerty II, executive vice president, on changes in response to staff requests: "As a result of team member input, we made specific changes to our health and dental plans to better meet their needs such as increasing the number of dental cleanings covered each year and introducing health savings accounts."
