From their wide range of pre-owned inventory and financing, coupled with a certified service department and full selection of parts and accessories, a customer can’t go wrong. But did you know, Driver’s Way is also a great place to work?
Why should you consider a career at Driver’s Way? Here are the top five reasons why it’s awesome to work at Driver’s Way in Birmingham!
1. Building Customer Relationships
Do you like talking to people and building relationships with others? At Driver’s Way, you’ll be in charge of customers that are nice, friendly and loyal.
Dawn Calvert, General Sales Manager at Driver’s Way in Pelham stated that customer loyalty is one of the top reasons why she loves working at Driver’s Way.
“I really like the loyalty of our guests,” said Calvert. “Most of them are return guests that come back or send us their friends or family to purchase from us, and I think that says a lot about a company. It’s also pretty awesome that I’m now seeing guests come in to purchase vehicles from us that I once sold vehicles to their parents back when I was in sales.”
2. Real Employee Teamwork
If you are interested in a career in sales, then Driver’s Way may be the perfect place for you. Not only will you get the chance to experience working in sales, but you will also get the opportunity to work with other great sales associates.
“I have the greatest Sales Associates around…bar none!” said Calvert. “If you don’t believe me, just come see for yourself. They aren’t your typical car salesmen/women, trust me! Every single one of them will make you feel at home in minutes with their friendly personalities and will make you glad that you came. I would be happy to buy a car from any one of them, and I’m a very picky buyer!”
3. It’s Rewarding
It’s not often that you can find a career that is rewarding, but Driver’s Way offers just that. How? By encouraging you to make customers happy with your knowledge, expertise and helpfulness.
“I enjoy helping people make such a big purchase and make them feel good about their decision,” said Calvert. “Buying a car shouldn’t be something a person dreads, but something they can actually have a good time doing. I learned that from one of my very favorite and first guests that I ever sold a vehicle to. He wrote a letter to me after his purchase and said that he had a great time buying and realized on his way home that he was actually still laughing on his ride home. He’s purchased at least nine vehicles since then. This really taught me a lot, and Driver’s Way is the perfect place to come and feel good about buying a vehicle.”
4. Your Future Looks Bright
Nothing against meeting and working with new people. It can be great at times. But there’s also a lot to be said for employee longevity, particularly when you’re trying to establish a well-performing team in a competitive industry.
Driver’s Way has low employee turnover, which means you will have the chance to truly get to know those working alongside you.
“I like the longevity of the employees, because it has made us all very close,” said Calvert, who has worked at Driver’s Way for 17 years. “Whenever someone goes through something personal in their life, everyone really steps up to the plate in support of each other like they would do for family. Witnessing that over the years, even in my own life, has been really special.”
5. Employee Benefits, Amen!
Working for a company that offers its employees a generous benefits package is huge! It is also another reason working at Driver’s Way is awesome.

- Health plans
