We’re excited to announce that Jim Koons Automotive has been selected again as one of Washington Business Journal’s 2012 “Best Places to Work” for the FOURTH consecutive year! Koons Automotive joins 49 other Washington businesses for this prestigious honor at an event to be held on June 1st at the Ritz-Carlton in Tysons Corner, VA. The entire company ranking will be announced at this time.
This will be the fourth consecutive year that Koons has made the list of “Best Places to Work.” Koons Automotive placed #1 in 2009 and 2010, and #4 in 2011. The annual award honors the area’s leading employers, while celebrating companies that go beyond the norm to foster an enjoyable and meaningful work environment for their employees.
We look forward to the event on June 1st and celebrating this great achievement with all of our employees! Check back on June 1st for the official ranking!
I want to give a quick shout out to Koons employees! Washington Business Journal has once again named Jim Koons Automotive Companies one of the Top 50 Best Places to Work in the greater Washington area based on a recent survey of more than 200 current employees. This will be our third year to receive this honor as Koons was ranked number one overall for large businesses in both 2009 and 2010! This year’s final rankings will be announced on June 2, 2011.
“One of my favorite things about working at Koons is the fun, fast-paced environment. In addition to growing in my job, I’ve made a lot of good friends here,” says Olivia Devereux, Media Director for the group.
My dad always says that the most important asset in our business is our employees. They continue to help us provide our customers with top-notch service. From the operator answering the phone, to the back-counter parts representative — they are all essential to helping our organization grow and be the best of the best. Working in the automotive industry is not a “nine-to-five” job. It can mean working long days, weekends, and sometimes holidays, but it is truly rewarding. As a member of the Koons team, you’re not just an employee, you’re a member of the Koons family.

And at the risk of sounding a bit cheesy, to all of our past, present, and future customers, you should know that the people who are working for you love their jobs and appreciate your business. We know that you have options when it comes to purchasing and servicing your vehicles, and we thank you for choosing Koons!
