"I have worked for the Jenkins auto group for 21 years. I started as a lot porter in 2000, moved to sales shortly after, then found my way to service. I have enjoyed watching this company grow beyond anyone’s expectations and have always admired the ability to keep a feel of family within the dealer group. I have seen hard work recognized and rewarded, which empowers our employees to strive to go above and beyond for the customers as well as the company. It truly is a rewarding experience to work for Jenkins!"
Service Manager for Hyundai of Ocala
My name is Anthony Guillaume and I am the Executive Manager of Jenkins Nissan of Leesburg. I started in the automotive industry 22 years ago at a Nissan dealership in Orlando, Florida. My love of cars, especially Nissans, led me to an exciting and fulfilling career for over two decades. Before I ever stepped foot into a car dealership for employment, I owned four Nissan Maximas, Nissan’s flagship vehicle, so my love for the brand was already cemented before I heard the words “you’re hired!” I worked my way up from selling vehicles to the General Manager and was at that dealership for 17 years. I left the brand for 2 years exploring other opportunities, but I found my way back to the brand in April of 2019 when I joined the Nissan store in Leesburg with the Jenkins Auto Group! I picked up right where I left off, got caught up on the brand that I loved and the programs, and my team and I were able to make Jenkins Nissan in Leesburg the #1 store in Lake County.
My journey thus far with Jenkins has been amazing! Jenkins has given me the autonomy to use my experience how I see fit to better my staff, the business, and ultimately our customers. Jenkins takes a customer centric culture and gives it a new meaning. If it makes the customer happy, and it makes sense, we do whatever it takes to give the customer an exceptional experience…sales and service. Doing the right things doesn’t always make business sense. So when you’re able to make decisions that may not always benefit the bottom line, without any repercussions, you know you’re part of a really good thing! Jenkins not only encourages their people to make good decisions that benefit the customer, we demand it!
I enjoy being part of a team of professionals that makes coming to work effortless and fun. I enjoy leading a team of individuals that just want to make a good living and also get to serve their community at the same time. And what’s more fun than cars? Don’t get me wrong, there are challenges in every organization. But when challenges are presented here, they are quickly addressed, and we do our very best to learn and improve moving forward. No one makes you feel “less than” for asking a question you don’t know the answer to. Our support team in our corporate offices are always a quick text/call away, and if need be, they’re at one of the dealerships lending a hand pretty quick.
I would tell someone who was considering working for this Group to “jump quick” if the opportunity presented itself! Coming to Jenkins has by far been the best decision I have made in my automotive career. What I didn’t know in this stage of my career, I learned it here…and it hasn’t stopped. The continual education that is provided is truly amazing. We even conduct a Supervisor’s Training every other month facilitated by the President of the company and the Human Resource Director (two very busy individuals) to keep the leadership in the company up to date on the on goings of our industry and most importantly, how to keep our people engaged and happy to work here. We truly believe that happy employees equal happy customers. The advancement opportunities are endless, the benefits are second to none, we over train, we over communicate, and this truly the better place to work!
