"My name is Austin Cavaness, I have been a employee at Smolich Motors for about two years now. I have had much success and a lot of oppportunity to grow in my time with the company. I was hired as a Sales Professional and then promoted to Internet Sales. Shortly after that I was offered the Internet Sales Manager role. I recently just took over the position as Commerical Fleet Manager and very excited for this new opportunity! There is something to be said about a family owned and operated business. You feel apart of the Smolich Family, and as someone who just started their own family I am thankful for the opportunity to build my career. I truly enjoy working for the best dealership around."
"Started my career with Smolich Motors as a salesman in May of 2008. When I was hired I had been selling cars for seven years. I was attracted to this company for the simple reason that they would help train and give me opportunities to advance in the future. Nearly 11 years later, with the help of a lot of key people who are still here working alongside me, I've become the Volvo store manager and have assembled a great family and customer service orientated group. I enjoy coming to work every day for the challenge and the ability to serve our customers while helping their dreams come true one Volvo at a time! Thank you Smolich Motors for the wonderful career and support to me and my family over these years!"
"I started with Smolich Motors in January 2014. At the time I was a single mom with a daughter attending her freshman year in college, a daughter still in high school, and currently working with the HDESD. They had an opening for a part time Saturday Cashier which I thought would be perfect for the extra income I needed to provide for my family.
Throughout the 1st 6 months of working, I was able to fill in for the Administrative Office when needed depending on my availability. I expressed interest that if there became a full-time position available, I would really like to be considered. The atmosphere, the employees and great customers I encountered here at Smolich Motors felt like family and a place I would like to challenge myself to my full potential.
Well, here I am 5 years later, and beyond grateful for Smolich Motors taking a chance on me. I was offered the position as Title Clerk. With no DMV or Car Dealership experience, it definitely was challenging. Throughout my time here at Smolich Motors, I have been given the opportunity to cross train in several administrative positions and was nominated in 2017 by the management team here at Smolich Motors as Employee of the Year. That was a moment I will never forget!
I recently was promoted to Office Manager, that title in its self as been a new challenge along with the new accounting responsibilities. As time has passed, I am very appreciative for all the memories and laughs that my past team and co -workers shared. As for my new team, I thank you for providing new memories and continuing to fill the office with laughter, know I appreciate every one of you.
Smolich Motors continues providing a family environment, opportunities to challenge myself daily, and the greatest gift of all, my new husband, Brian."
"I am a newly single mother to three girls, and I am so proud to show them that no matter what, they can pick themselves up and take care of themselves. Working at Jim Smolich Motors, Inc has allowed me to set that example for my girls. I have been in the automotive industry since 2014. I have filled many positions, but my favorite of them all has been DMV Administrator/Title Clerk. Luckily, my career here at Jim Smolich Motors, Inc sort of fell into my lap and I’m so grateful it did. Becoming part of the Smolich Family Team has been such a pleasant experience. I’ve never felt as appreciated in any other workplace as I do here at Smolich."
Meet some of the women of Smolich Motors! The automotive industry was once known for being least successful in attracting female employees. We're happy to have women in all of our departments, Sales, Service, Parts and Accounting. May they continue to never underestimate the influence they have on others!
