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.
If you know someone that’s looking for a career change, tell them about Koons! Employment opportunities and an on-line application are available on our website, www.koons.com.
Thanks again to our employees for all that you do.
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!
