In 1987, Jim McManes purchased Eastside Dodge, which originally opened in Calgary in 1976. Since that time Eastside is consistently one of the top performing dealerships within the Canadian Chrysler dealer network. We have expanded our facility by purchasing an adjacent building, which is now our used car operation, and added 18,000 sq. ft. to the original building. McManes Automotive has been constantly expanding by adding 16 new vehicle franchises, 1 large used vehicle operation and a leasing company! Our history and our successes are due solely to the people within our organization. We are very proud of our employees and many of them, over the years, have grown to be part of our management and ownership teams.
At Eastside Dodge it’s all about having the right attitude. Like any good organization, it all starts at the top. Our Dealer Principal and General Manager are all about creating an environment for the employees to have success. They are all about promoting a disciplined, fun and winning wining environment, while ensuring success is properly recognized and celebrated once achieved. With a constant stream of employee social events, sales incentives programs and the best Christmas parties (separate adult and kids) in the city there’s always something fun going on here at Eastside!!!
Our Vision at Eastside Dodge is to be Fair, Fast & Accurate in all that we do! We firmly believe that if we constantly strive to achieve these principles, we will not only have happy satisfied customers, we will also have happy, satisfied employees. There's always a positive energy and an atmosphere that's ever-present and is conducive to our team making the customer purchase experience easy and fun. That culture and environment doesn't just happen by mistake, it is a direct result of our leadership team. Over and above the standard medical, dental and disability benefits, we also provide other long term loyalty programs. For each year of service at Eastside Dodge, there is an escalating loyalty plan based on every hour produced. This program continues to grow the longer you stay with the Eastside family! We also have comprehensive training programs for all departments and even sponsor eligible candidates for the NADA Academy in Virginia when you're ready to run your own dealership!
