This past week the some of the Teens attended one of the Workforce training visits to Wickstrom Auto Group. Members took a tour throughout the Dealership and learned about the different career fields and jobs. They learned very valuable lessons in customer service such as treating everyone like a customer. They were able to speak with mechanics Steve and Angel and were shown a demonstration. They were also shown some handy life skills such as how to change you oil, checking the tire pressure, how to rotate tires and other car maintenance skills. They also were able to see and learn how the car wash and detail shop operates.
After learning a few mechanical skills, the members visited the sales department. Manny and Michelle, Wickstrom’s top sales force, spoke to the members about selling cars, negotiating, having goals, and car training to help the sales rep have a better understanding about the vehicles.
The office department gave the members a glimpse of the financial side of buying or trading a car. They learned a little big about processing, billing and trading paperwork.
Wickstrom Auto Group is a long time donor to the BGCDT. We are incredibly grateful for all that they have contributed to our mission. We are also very thankful to them for taking time out of their busy work schedules to educate our members and showing them different career opportunities in the auto industry. Thank you Wickstrom!
