Sales Consultant Mark Thomas on showing employees they are valued:
"Yark makes me feel valued by having employee nights at the Mud Hens, Walleye and Rockets games. My favorite time of the year is always at the Yark holiday party. Seeing everyone together, going over the company's accomplishments for the year and hearing what Yark has to offer in the future makes you feel like you're included in something very special. In a time when most companies don't have holiday parties for their employees, the food, prizes and provided cabs are very generous. There are quarterly prizes given out as well for our sales leaders, which help motivate us to break our own records. Besides the functions and prizes, Yark offers great health care options and a 401(k)."
Thomas on keeping employees engaged:
"Besides the benefits and functions, I feel like I can openly speak with anyone in upper management and be heard. There is no better way to feel engaged than knowing that my opinion matters. I come to work ready every day knowing that I have the tools, resources and management team to help me accomplish all of my professional goals. My management team helps keep me hungry and motivated to find ways to help my past, current and future customers. It is important to me to provide customers with the best customer experience possible, and Yark allows me to do that. I am not at Yark for a job; I am at Yark for a career."
Dave Boehm, General Sales Manager, on retaining employees:
Auto dealerships are notorious for high employee turnover rates.Yark Subaru in Toledo, Ohio is an exception.

Meanwhile, he said, it has added four salespeople to its roster over the last two years. Boehm said "the dealership's collaborative, team-centric culture, in addition to how management treats its staff, makes Yark Subaru an ideal place to work."
