What does it take to join the team at Ducharme Motors? First of all, Ducharme Motors is great place to work with deep community roots. The company is well known in Bonnyville having been in business for more than 50 years and is a steadfast supporter of community events.
Ashley Buchinski, Recruitment Manager at Ducharme Motors explains some of the things that she looks for when recruiting staff. “We want friendly confident people who are great team players. They also must have a proven track record of superior customer service.” Applicants must have a positive outlook…everything else can be taught! Applicants are encouraged to either submit a resume online at www.ducharmemotors.com or drop it off at the dealership.
All resumes submitted online are maintained in a sophisticated Applicant Tracking system. Buchinski then forwards resumes to the appropriate hiring manager. Occasionally, she requires more information prior to submitting and will either email or phone the applicant. These notes are then forwarded with the resume. The most successful resumes detail the candidates’ experience, especially when it pertains to the job they are seeking. For example, a resume for a detailer position should reference cleaning such as previous detailing experience, housekeeping or shop cleaning and a confirmation that the candidate has a driver’s license. If the position is still available, the candidate would most likely receive a phone call to set up an interview time. Interviews usually occur with the Hiring Manager and a member from the Human Resources team and last between 10 minutes and 30 minutes. Interviews can be conducted by telephone, in person or via Skype. Candidates should be prepared to provide three work references (people who directly supervised the ap
plicant and who could speak to their abilities at work). Occasionally, candidates will be asked to go through a second interview or an offer will be made after references are checked and a criminal check comes back clear.
