“My career with the Kocourek Automotive Group started 5 years ago. I was working in the food service industry and was looking for a change of employment. I was referred by a friend who worked at the Kocourek detail shop to apply. I had absolutely no experience in automotive industry let alone any detailing experience. Once I started, I was trained and quickly mastered the Kocourek detailing process. By working hard and following the Kocourek core values I was promoted to paint touch up and then back up manager. My manager was then promoted to the ABRA Body Shop and I was offered the position to manage the Kocourek detail department.”

“I started as a part-time detailer for the Kocourek Ford Lincoln location right after High School with no real direction. I was given the opportunity to move up into the Sales team about 4 months later with no previous experience. They gave me all the training I needed to understand the business and working with guests. Flash forward a few years later and I am one of the top Sales Consultants! Kocourek is an organization that is willing to invest in their employees as long as they are ready to learn.”

Chevrolet Service Adviser - 30 years with Kocourek
“It all started on a mid-summers day in 2007. I was hired as a Detailer at the Chevrolet store. I worked there part-time as I was in college. I turned the part-time position into a full-time position. I was then brought along as a new employee when Ford was purchased. In 2010 I was promoted to Parts at Chevrolet. After about nine months, I moved to the Imports location. I worked Import Parts for less than a year and was promoted to Detail shop Manager. I was Detail Shop Manager until the fall of 2012. Since then I have been Parts Manager at Imports. As we have grown, so have I.”

“I had heard great things about Kocourek as a company and thought it would be a good way to get my foot in the door. When a service advisor position opened up 6 months later at Subaru I applied. I had no experience but had proven that I was efficient, a fast learner, dedicated, and great at customer service so I was offered the role. I spent the next 1 ½ years as a service advisor for Subaru and in March 2015 was offered the Service Manager position. It has been a bit of a whirlwind but I couldn’t have asked for a better company to work for and am so grateful for the opportunities I have been given.”
