Dina Perreault, human resources director, on recruiting: "We target four-year institutions for business, finance and accounting majors to work in our sales, F&I and accounting departments. We hand out fliers at college job fairs indicating career paths -- for example, from entry-level sales consultants through general manager -- for highly motivated individuals.
"We have targeted two-year institutions and vo-tech colleges for our technical job openings and for sales and F&I openings. We have increased our use of paid summer interns at the high school and college level in the following positions: service technicians, Internet sales consultants, F&I manager assistants and accounts payable/receivable clerks."
Rocchi on showing employees that they are valued: "Top-grossing sales consultants each month are offered one month of free gas. In service, the top-producing technician in hours and/or gross receives tickets to major sporting or family events in Philadelphia."
