October Employee of the Month
Let us introduce you to our October Employee of the Month, Carl Fosvik. Carl works in our Parts Department and was nominated by our management team. You can read some of their comments below. Here is some more info about Carl:
Tell us about yourself: I was born and raised in Sioux City. I lived on the westside until I was 10, then moved to riverside, and currently live on the westside. Most of my family is in the Sioux City area except for my brother who lives in Wisconsin. I enjoy hiking, target shooting with my wife Stacey and working on muscle type cars with my friends.
What is one thing about yourself that your co-workers don’t know? On the day of my first interview with Knoepfler Chevrolet, I was working at Boulevard Food Store and happened to be carrying out groceries for Barb Knoepfler. I saw her vehicle sticker and mentioned that I had an interview at Knoepfler later that day. She asked who the interview was with, and it happened to be with her son, Bill. She told me to make sure to tell Bill to hire me. During my interview, I mentioned seeing his mom earlier that day and how she told him to hire me. Bill stopped the interview and hired me on the spot, so I like to joke that I am probably the only employee hired by Barb Knoepfler.
What makes Knoepfler Chevrolet a great place to work in your eyes? It really is a family-type atmosphere. We all care for and look out for each other.
If you could tell customers something about the dealership that they might not know, what would it be? Everyone takes pride in their job and will do anything they can to get everything done correctly, because our customers are very important to us.
