driversselect – Why Work For Us?


driversselect is a purpose-based retailer of nearly-new vehicles founded on the principles of Conscious Capitalism. The company takes an approach similar to Costco, IKEA and Southwest Airlines: leveraging deliberate tradeoffs to deliver value in a few concentrated areas so that vehicles are consistently of utmost quality and priced well below market value and the purchase process is streamlined in an effort to make it effortless. This is all done through our Culture of CARE (Caring Acts Randomly Expressed) so that all stakeholders feel valued.

driversselect sold over 10,000 nearly new vehicles in 2017 with an estimated $240M revenue (up from $45M/2000 cars just 4 years ago). All this from a single location in Dallas - making it one of the largest single point auto dealerships in the country. The company was recently acquired by the Sonic Automotive Group and now has plans to expand into new markets across the country. The culture driversselect has created allowed them to be recognized as a Dallas Business Journal Best Place to Work 2016, 2017 and 2018 and Dallas Morning News Top Workplace in 2016 and 2017.

Learn to Earn/Take Ownership Credo:   

As a tribe member, I am responsible for taking ownership of understanding what is expected of me everyday and following it up with action, asking for help and support where needed, and being open to learning from the success of others while also making my own contributions to the learning of my fellow tribe members.  I won’t wait for someone to tell me what to do, when to do it or even why to do it. If I need to know, I’m responsible for asking.  If I’m doing something that will impact the performance of others (positively or negatively) I’m responsible for informing them. This is what it means to live the core values of learn to earn and take ownership.

 

In case you were wondering about the work environment at driversselect, we can say that it's definitely not like any other dealership!

We have an awesome "Collision Center," where we can meet up with other tribe members for breakfast or lunch.  It stays well-stocked with healthier foods and snacks. We also decorate the room for our monthly Kick Off meetings - everything from Mardi Gras to Vegas Baby!  

When you work in retail, you have to have some fun. 2017 brought us a panda head and an ongoing panda dance contest in the office!

    I have been working at driversselect full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been in the car business for 17 years and I was lucky enough to join the driversselec tribe 3 months ago. I still
    Can’t belive that such an amazing place exists in the car business. We are not employees we are family. Not only are you allowed to be your self you are encouraged to do so. It does not matter if you are the president of the company or Sales support every one treats you with respect and is Genuinely happy to see you every day. We live by our core values and we infect the work place with care. We work hard but we have a lot of fun. I wake up every day excited to go to work because I know that no matter what happens it will be a great day. I have never worked with a group of people that cared so much about my growth and development as a leader and our over all success. Working here has not only changed me for the better but also my family. I am much happier and less stressed then I have ever been and that makes for a much better home life. So to sum it up, I love being part of the tribe!!!

    Cons

    At this pont I don’t have any cons to share.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at driversselect in April 2018.

    Interview

    Very laid back interview process. I felt welcomed and like they wanted me to be a member of the team. It was a none on interview with several managers then I was given a Trego test to determine my personality traits.
