Established in 1951 by automotive industry icon, Tex Earnhardt, Earnhardt Auto Centers is Arizona’s largest family-owned automotive group. Today, Earnhardt employs over 2,000 awesome men and women at over 20 locations throughout Metro Phoenix, Prescott Valley, and Las Vegas. We attribute a massive amount of our success and longevity to providing our employees with a comfortable, friendly, and fun work environment, as well as comprehensive benefits packages and lucrative pay plans. We place a major focus on employee retention and job satisfaction within every level of the organization, and resolutely reinforce a corporate-wide understanding that regardless of who you are, where you come from, or where you begin your career at Earnhardt’s, there will always be room at the top for those who work hard.
It’s not uncommon for many of us spend more time with the people we work with than with our own families, so it is important that we do what we can to make that time worthwhile. Earnhardt Auto Centers is family owned and operated, so naturally we aim to treat every employee like family, and encourage an atmosphere that is conducive to forging lifelong bonds and friendships. Additionally, dealership management and ownership are committed to being approachable and accessible to all employees who wish to share their ideas and concerns in order to improve overall job satisfaction and morale.
We understand that we get the best from our people when we provide the means for them to take care of themselves and their families. To put it plainly, if we don’t pay, you won’t stay. Compensating our employees and rewarding those who excel is the key to retaining quality people. In addition to our standard pay plan and benefits packages, Earnhardt’s regularly shows appreciation for our employees through bonus programs, contests, catered employee “thank you” days, and occasional prize giveaways. Plus, Earnhardt’s is among the few employers who provide an on-site nurse for our employees. This one particular, added convenience has resulted in improved attendance as well as happier, healthier, and more productive employees.
When we say we promote from within, we really mean it. Within our organization, there are General Managers who started as Lot Attendants, Finance Managers who started as receptionists & Sales Managers who started out washing cars. Some employees have even climbed the ranks to become partial owners of our stores. Earnhardt Auto Centers is truly a place where employees are limited only by their ambition and desire to succeed. And that ain’t no bull!
