How We Care For Our Team

“Why I like working at Rydell: In the two years, I’ve worked here, I’ve had the opportunity to meet and work with amazing people. I love helping someone find that perfect vehicle while making them feel at ease with the buying experience. My reward is when customers bring their friends and family back to me for a vehicle. The belief and trust they have for me, means everything! I also treasure the friendships I have built with the staff in all departments of Rydell. Coming to work is a lot easier when you enjoy our job and the people you work with.”

Andy Buchheit

“The reasons that I like working at Rydell would be the different challenges each day. It seems to make the work day fly by. I also enjoy the “family” atmosphere and that the management is pretty flexible and easy to work with.”

Tim Hinders
Parts Counter Sales (Rydell Waterloo)

“The best part of working for the Rydell Parts department has been the ability to move up in my job. I started in the shipping and receiving department, then I was on the retail sales counter, now I’m in the wholesale department. My work load has increased but so have my benefits. I’ve been here 7 years and I really appreciate all the opportunities that I’ve been given to make more money and grow as a salesperson. As well as grow a customer base that may not compare to some of the veteran employees but are loyal to me. Customer service is important and if I’m treated well by my employer, my customers reap those rewards as well.”

John Paar
Wholesale Parts Sales (Rydell Waterloo)

“One of the many reasons why I have enjoyed working at Rydell Chevrolet is the opportunity for growth and advancement. In 2003, I started working at Rydell as the Receptionist, since then I have worked in Customer Service, as a Sales Assistant and now HR. I have learned so much from working here and have been given great opportunities.”

Shelly Jura
Human Resources Manager (Rydell Waterloo)

“I walked in the door June of 1991, and got hired as a sales consultant, since then I have been a sales manager, used car manager, general sales manager and now general manager. All along the way, the Rydell’s have provided the training and guidance I have needed to succeed in this fantastic business. I always say that the car business has unlimited potential for anyone that wants to work hard and learn it. ”

Jeff Smock
General Manager (Rydell Waterloo)

“I have worked at Ford dealerships for almost 25 years and Rydell is one of the most pleasant places I have worked. There is a good rapport between the employees and also with the guests that come in. Service does a good job of keeping the customers informed and sales goes out of their way to get the customers what they need. It is our mission to “exceed our customers’ and employees’ expectations and maintain their loyalty for a lifetime.”

“Working at Rydell of Independence presents me with new opportunities and challenges every day. I enjoy working with the Rydell team to meet the needs of our customers and provide support for our community.”

Glen Fults
(Rydell Independence)

“The hours let me spend more time with my family, so I can watch them grow and be there for the important events. It has been a fun year getting to know the employees here at Independence. After getting to know everyone, work has been fun every day and I never leave to go home angry. Getting home in a better mood helps life at home as well. The main reason I came over here was to grow in the company and learn as much as I can about the auto industry. I took over a position in which I had zero experience and quickly had to learn many new processes. I have had great help from John and Wint over the last year and they are always there to help me when I need it. I have had a great time the last year here with my co-workers, customers and learning as much as I can to continue to grow within the Rydell family. Great people, great hours, great company, fun work environment makes for a happy Kyle.”
