We might not be the biggest auto group but our pledge to you is an understanding at the highest level that clients are the lifeblood of our business. We love our clients and want to get to know each and everyone one of you. This is something that some of the big dealer groups might have lost sight of but we understand that without you there is no us. WestGate Auto Group is working extremely hard to give you a client experience like you’ve never had before here or elsewhere. We know that you have your choice of many places that you can go to purchase or service your vehicles. We know that we have to earn your business; it’s not something that we can or will take for granted.
Founder, WestGate Auto Group
At first glance, The WestGate Auto Group family of dealerships may appear to be “just another group of automotive dealerships.” However, we’re worth more than just another look. With more than 30 years in business, we are a progressive customer-focused family-owned enterprise centrally located in Raleigh, NC. However, we have recently expanded our dealerships to convenient locations in North and South Carolina. Drivers from Columbia (SC), Charlotte, Greensboro, Winston-Salem to Wilmington have been known to make the trip to visit our dealerships, a clear testament to the sales and service we’re known to provide.
Prospective employees will find the faces of our dealership diverse – From Europe to the U.S. to Latin America our employees speak numerous languages and bring a culturally eclectic nuance to our customer experience. From your first experience visiting our locations you will see employees going the extra mile to ensure customers get a break from the traditional dealership fare. From management to sales, service and finance, each member of our Westgate family treats our visitors and each other with respect – treating each customer the way we want to be treated. We believe this atmosphere promotes simple, humble integrity, which is why we’re widely known to be a no-pressure dealership. Along with our hassle-free approach to sales, we pride ourselves on our transparency from the top on down. No over promised deals, no bluster, no manipulation – just the basics – just good ol’ fashioned customer service.
2013 Chrysler Environmental Leadership Award. This award was given to us for being the first domestic brand auto franchise to install 480 solar and stringent recycling practices and other efforts towards sustainable operations.
Every year we have a large number of WestGate employees who volunteer their time and participate in the Annual Walk For Hope, an event supporting the Foundation of Hope. Westgate also provides a sizeable charitable donation to support the foundation because Mental illness isn’t a character flaw. It’s not a sign of weakness. It can affect anyone of any age, race, gender or class. Despite advances in mental illness research and treatment, the stigma associated with psychiatric disorders is particularly severe and widespread. This stigma is a barrier that prevents many individuals from getting the treatment they need. According to Mental Health America (MHA), 43.7 million Americans struggle with a mental health condition annually. One out of five of these individuals will not receive the treatment they need.
Many people with a mental illness enjoy fulfilled, productive lives—but only with access to treatment. And yet, while our society has made greater strides to approach the subject openly and without shame, conversations about mental illness are still often taboo at worst and clouded by misinformation at best.
If you are a hardworking, self-starting, performance-oriented person who believes in healthy competition playing for the right team, take a look at WestGate. You’ll have to look no further.
"Being transparent is something I have prided myself on since I was a young girl. I feel being transparent invites trustworthiness and you establish and distinguish yourself as credible and honest."
"Integrity means to me you choose your thoughts and actions based on values rather than personal gain. It means you are brave, braver than others. It reflects your character and there is nothing more authentic.
My work mentor always said, employees who are passionate about what they do will be both happier and more productive at work. Their passion stems from caring deeply about what they do or where they work and being personally invested in and motivated by its mission.
