We're nothing without our customers, and our latest employee of the month uses that idea to drive everything he does as a service advisor here in Bismarck, North Dakota.
Gerald Goetz has been with Eide Chrysler from the start, and he's been working with Chrysler parts and vehicles even longer. We're proud to recognize his hard-work, experience, and dedication to customers by naming him September Employee of the Month.
"I've been working with Chrysler vehicles for 6 years," Gerald says.
He says that growing up in Center, North Dakota, his was always a Chrysler family.
"All we drove was Dodge, Chrysler, Plymouth," he says. "I've always been kind of a MOPAR guy."
On top of his passion for MOPAR products, Gerald says it's the people he works with and the customers he gets to help that make Eide Chrysler a great place to have a career.
When asked what made him stand-out in September, he's not too sure, saying he just put in the same hard, quality work he always does.
"I have no idea why," he said. "I was kind of shocked."
But looking at his experience, the recognition is no surprise. Gerald worked up from car porter to lube tech before learning the ropes of the auto body shop. He's had a hand in all the different service departments, and worked as a recall technician before being promoted to service advisor.
