The best service in Bismarck relies on support from an entire staff behind the scenes here at our store on Missouri Avenue. The dedication of our accounting team allows our staff and customers to do business with confidence. One of those accounting team members is Accounts Payable and Receivable Clerk Sue Olson, who is our July Employee of the Month.
In nearly 25 years with Dodge dealerships in Bismarck, Sue has emerged as a jack-of-all-trades worker who deeply cares about the accuracy and importance of her work. We're proud to name her July Employee of the Month.
"I've worked with Sue since Eide Chrysler opened, and she is a great person to work with," said Sue's supervisor, Office Manager Eva Carlstad. "I enjoy her sense of humor. Everyone just loves working with her."
Eva also appreciates Sue's determination to get stuff done.
"She sometimes ends up with a lot of invoices on her desk, and she's getting pulled in different directions. At the end of the day, though, she finds a way to get it all done. I don't know how she does it, but she's good at it," Eva said.
Eide Chrysler General Manager Jesse Peterson agrees.
“Sue is a great asset to our company," said Jesse. "She has an incredible ability to get done whatever I put on her desk. Her answer is always 'no problem' whatever the request is. She was a unanimous selection for employee of the month from our management team.”

Accounts Receivable and Payable Clerk
Eide Chrysler's Employee of the Month for July 2017
Q: How long have you been on the Eide team?
I've been working at the Dodge dealership – Corwin, Ryan, and now Eide – for 25 years now.
Q: What does a typical workday look like?
My main job is to make sure we're paying our bills and receiving our payments accurately and on time. I'm responsible for matching the checks we receive to the right accounts, and that we pay out to the right company at the right time. It's a lot of invoices and statements.
Q: What is the most satisfying part of your role?
Most businesses have two people doing this job, but we have a good system here. It keeps me busy and that's why I like it. It feels good to get my work done at the right time and also to be able to pay things off at the right times. I like making sure things balance in our books.
Q: What makes Eide Chrysler different from other dealerships in the area?
We're all truthful. When a dealership employs good people like we do, the customer can know that they're telling the truth about the vehicle or service. For me it's all about truthfulness.
Q: What do you do in your free time?
I like to spend time with my three children and 8 grandchildren. We have one more grandchild on the way! My husband and I have been married for 40 years now, and we like to go fishing together, and I like to read books.
Q: Who would you like to thank for your award?
I would like to thank whoever nominated me. I feel very honored to have the title for this month.
The next time you need a vehicle or an oil change, stop by or schedule your appointment at Eide Chrysler. Maybe your payment will be processed by Sue!
