Sample of what our teammates say about working at Drive & Shine:
Want to know what it is like to change careers and to be a part of the Drive & Shine family? Just listen to what some of our current management team members who have come from other industries and companies say about the Drive & Shine difference.
"I love the relationship that has grown with many co-workers and upper management since the short time I have been employed with this wonderful company. With Drive & Shine, each employee is well respected as well as feels valued rather than just being a number. The training is extremely in-depth which places the employee for success instead of a failure". -Team member's previous Employment: Restaurant Manager.
"This is a place where it is not only just a job but a family. Everyone here cares about each other, and we all have each other's best interests at heart. Something I have that is different from my last career would be having a bigger voice and our impact. Team member's previous Employment: - Recruiting & Retention Sergeant.
"I no longer feel like the weight of the company is on my shoulders. I love the support systems (recruiting, accounting, maintenance/IT on-site). In my past job these items were solely my responsibility along with running the business. I love that people can be recognized and rewarded for their hard work, ownership, loyalty, rather than just being recognized for profit. My favorite difference would be that a large majority of the staff look at this as a career or a long-term partnership, wherein my past industry we were lucky to have someone stick around for 90 days. -Team member's previous Employment: Restaurant General Manager.
"We matter. Drive & Shine pays well and rewards those whose efforts go above and beyond. They want all of us to have a work/life balance and have been very supportive when I asked to vary my hours to coach basketball for a couple of years and to take time to heal properly after several surgeries I had over the past couple of years. All of these things combined make me want to work even harder for them and to make this company the best. I feel very fortunate that I was hired here" -Team member's previous Employment: Sporting Goods Store Manager
"I Love that Drive and Shine is a family-owned business that treats its employees as family. I came from a background working in large-scale Industrial Maintenance. My job was very dangerous and trying at times. I can recall many times I did not want to go into work. I have never experienced that here at Drive and Shine. My work environment is much safer, and I am always excited to see what the next day brings me." -Team member's previous Employment: Industrial Maintenance Tech.
"The people here are exceptional, I love is feeling that I am rewarded for my efforts, there are growth opportunities, and that this job teaches life skills. Here is a list of what Drive & Shine has which the previous jobs did not: outstanding pay; feedback from superiors that is constructive and positive wanting you to succeed; facilities that have what you need and make you proud to say I work here; support staff that if needed is a phone call away or email - and they respond quickly; insurance right out of the gate; having working managers, doesn't feel as if they are on the sideline but on the field with you." -Team member's previous Employment: Automotive Industry District Manager
