Maria has been a service adviser with us for almost three years. Let’s hop to it!
What was your first ever job?
- In high school I worked at a Bath and Body Works. I still get headaches when I smell their perfumes!
What inspired you to work in the automotive industry?
- Honestly? Sheer luck. My parents have a home business so family owned businesses have always appealed to me. However, I was working at a very popular coffee chain that will remain unnamed and Jackie (one of the owners) approached me and told me something I’ll never forget. “I love your customer service and I want you to work for me.” Talk about an opportunity falling into your lap!
So you had never worked with cars before this?
- Haha not even close! Before I was trained here I think I had not changed the oil in my car in over 10,000 miles. I didn’t know how to put air in my tires, I didn’t know not to drive with a check engine light on. I ran that poor car to death! I’m grateful that I know better now.
What’s your favorite part of your job?
- I’ve developed a passion for this career and a deep admiration for the people I work with. Brinda is incredibly organized, Mario has a personality like sunshine and Andy is fair and holds us accountable. I don’t know how I feel about that Jackie lady though! (Hey!) I’m just teasing, you guys built this place from the ground up and I’m so happy that you did.
