Default Got a promotion...

I have worked for the same company for 24 years. Started out a parts delivery driver back in 1988. became a Parts Department Manager 2 years later. I have since then been a Service & Parts Manager and a Parts Department Director. Late last year our Fixed Operations Director left the company and I kind of picked up the slack in his absence while my owner looked for a replacement. Well 3 months later he offered me the position! I used to be in charge of 14 employees and now I have almost a 100. I am in charge of 2 seperate Service and Parts Departments and one of the largest automotive dealerships in downstate Illinois. I quess it goes to show you that hard work and commitment does pay off. I came from a white trash background with just (barely) a high school education and now I am in charge of a 14 million dollar a year business. I have to thank my grandfather for showing me all I need to know about cars at a very young age and teaching me the most important thing in life, respect.
