I obviously grew up in the car business with my father being the owner of Eastside Dodge and President of the McManes Automotive Group. At a young age I began detailing cars, prepping the lot and cleaning the shop and I was probably the only 13 or 14 year old that was able to drive brand new cars everyday in the summer! I was in heaven…now there were some times that those big yellow poles in front of the shop doors got in my way so I painted them grey! Anyways, I had a lot of fun growing up being part of Eastside Dodge and I believe that it still has that family culture for everyone that works here. We have about 135 people that work here and a lot of them have been here for a very long time. That is something that I am very proud to be a part of.
I don’t think there is anything better in a workplace than having a great staff that is truly committed to the store and to our customers. Being committed means that our staff cares about our customers because the chances are…they will see them again! Each year we give awards away to the staff members that have been here 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 years…and each year we have people in every category! I have always said that it is more enjoyable doing business with people that you know or people that were recommended to you. So that is our goal…to become the people that you know in the car business!
