People who work at Sewell are smart and talented. We know, because our interview process includes testing for intelligence and aptitude. We recruit at top universities and colleges. We also hire many experienced professionals seeking a long-term career with plenty of opportunities for growth in responsibility and income. Bringing together a lot of high-performing people in an organization with high standards of service creates a spirited atmosphere, an organization that feels elite, but not elitist. We help keep each other on our toes. And it shows. As the owner of a neighboring business told one of our managers, "You guys just carry yourselves differently."
A Lifetime of Learning -- On the Company Dime
At the conclusion of your formal education, there is usually a ceremony called commencement. Commencement means a beginning, not a conclusion - the beginning, we hope, of a lifetime of continual learning. One of the secrets of our company's success is the investment we make in the continuing education of our associates. That includes industry training to advance technical skills and professional credentialing as well as executive programs from schools such as Harvard, the University of Virginia, Michigan, SMU, Texas A&M, Wharton, Northwestern, and the Center for Creative Leadership. What are your goals? We personalize educational experiences to help you achieve them.
Great Service Creates Great Opportunities
As Sewell grows, we look for leaders. The formula is pretty simple. When we do a good job with our customers and associates, we grow. When we grow, there is more opportunity for advancement. That is how we have been building our business for over 100 years. So how does your good performance get noticed? We have built systems to make sure it does. For instance, we discovered that technicians in our dealerships produced higher quality work when an inspector did not check their work. So we eliminated inspectors. Knowing that the customer is the final inspector brings out the best in us all. And customers, like any good inspector, give great feedback on our performance.
You Get To Contribute from Day One
We hire the best and the brightest, so it only makes sense that we would listen to what they have to say and learn from what they do. Performance-oriented thinking means everyone matters. It is more about what you do than how long you have been here. Some of our best ideas have come from the fresh perspective of new recruits.
Sewell offers inspired service to customers - and associates. We stand firm in our commitment to helping you be your best, all career long.
Unlike Anywhere Else
Ongoing educational opportunities support not only career growth, but personal growth as well. That's just one feature in addition to exceptional benefits that differentiates Sewell. Outstanding facilities, sophisticated equipment and empowering environments are a few more.
Do you see yourself someplace that feels more like a home than just a job? We're very selective in our hiring process because when you join us, you aren't just another team member -- you're a Sewell family member.
