Jaguar Plano is the best dealership to work for

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 19, 2012

Texas auto dealership Jaguar Plano earned the top rank in the first Automotive News\' list of the \"100 Best Dealerships To Work For.\" Jaguar Plano has a “help the client” mantra. It gives $50 gasoline cards to its employees for doing the right thing. The award was given last Wednesday in Chicago at the Ritz Carlton. U.S. and Canadian stores had applied for the recognition.

The Best Companies Group screened extensive surveys that the stores had filled out and then chose the top 100 dealerships. Kenneth Schnitzer, the chairman of Jaguar Plano parent Park Place Dealerships, a 16-store chain of luxury franchises in Texas and Nevada, said that it’s vital to take care of your workers since they get the job done daily.

They interact with the customers and they fix the cars. Mike Cuzzo, general manager of the dealership, said that this was an “amazing accomplishment” and that the store’s success is credited to a “good owner and good people.\" The past few years for the Jaguar Plano workers have been eventful. Service writer Garry Shewbirt said that in 2009 during his first year at the store in Dallas, the business had dropped.

The dealership was involved in a legal dispute with Jaguar, which had alleged that the owner and some of its workers committed warranty-claim fraud. Shewbirt said that at that point, he was about to find something else. However, Park Place Dealerships bought the store in May 2010 and instantly invested $1 million in a new showroom and other restorations. It fixed broken equipment and brought in new tools as well. Training was given to workers, including technicians who used to spend for their own training.
