Please join us in congratulating Scott Manthey for being our outstanding employee of the quarter!
In June of 2000, I graduated from Olympic College with my Automotive Degree. I was inexperienced but excited to start my new career. I searched high & low to call a place “home”. I opened the local Shelton Journal on July 26th & found the ad I was looking for. The ad was for a local dealership that wanted to hire a Tech-Helper. I applied for the position & was hired that same day. I have spent the last 17 years working for the dealership.
During that time many wonderful things have happened. The dealership change ownership to Gillis Auto Center. I have been provided with many opportunities to advance my educations & career. I have become a Journeyman Technician specializing in drivability & electrical diagnosis. I have become part of an extended family that not only cares about our community, but also cares about my wife and children. Don Gillis & his employees raise money for charities & have helped support me during difficult times. Gillis Auto Center is more than a job, it’s the “home” I was looking for 17 years ago.
