Bobby Rahal Acura | August, 2002
Service Advisor

“I enjoy working at Bobby Rahal Acura because of the anniversary trips. Kidding! Joking aside, it’s the freedom to take care of clients how I see fit. Obviously, some situations require management approval, but as long as I can justify my actions, I’m good to go. To sum it up, I like wearing big boy pants, and the company allows me to do so.”

“My New Hire experience was AWESOME! Never in all my years of different jobs have I ever felt so welcomed into a company as Bobby Rahal Honda. From the 1st day of my interview to the day I came in as a new hire, I was greeted with beautiful smiles, warm handshakes, and everyone in such upbeat, positive atmosphere.  At this moment, I knew this was my new home & family, I was going to be part of great TEAM at Rahal. I was hired on my 60th Birthday, and everyone went out of their way to wish me a Happy Birthday and treat me as I had been here a long time already, that I was already part of the Rahal Family.  “My “On the Job Training” was even more AWESOME, and I can’t say it is really fair for me to comment on my experience due to me feeling pretty special due to me being the only one in class. I had my trainer Kim Bono all to myself and I had her attention 100%, just for me.  This was great because I needed to learn quickly due to shortness of people in the department for Appointment Scheduling. It was hard at first: it was a whole new world to learn, had to take in a lot of information, and Kim had great patience, and great knowledge of the system and everything that was expected of me to become a rising star at my new position. I had to move fast & was put into my position with all the information I needed to become a good Customer Service Rep for Bobby Rahal Honda. The training is fun, knowledgeable, and at first, hard. It really prepared me for what I needed to do at my job in the call center. I have experienced new people coming in after me, & it is very obvious the training is a great system due to my new co-workers coming on board & able to jump in once they had on hands training as well.  Again, keep up what you are doing, because it is working. I know 1st hand that us new kids on the block are very happy in our position and we greatly appreciate the overwhelming response of everyone on Team Rahal to welcome us, & put up with our non-stop questions and their willingness to help us grow better in our new/old positions.  What a great place to be a part of such a great team as Bobby Rahal TEAM.”

“I enjoy working at the Bobby Rahal of Lewistown store because it is a small dealership in a small town. Everyone here has been very receptive to me and helping me to learn this business. I came here almost two years ago now with only my love of vehicles and of course my eighteen years of customer service in banking to help me launch a new career in car sales. I have learned so much about Toyota’s and the car business from all of my team members. We are truly a team here at this small store helping each other make it a great experience for our customers.”

Ryan Lomago

Bobby Rahal Honda | August, 2005
Service Advisor

“For starters, the companionship that builds amongst our team I feel is hard to beat. When I compare our company with others, I often times wonder if many places operate on such a welcoming and friendly environment. Always chances for growth and advancement; as I started from the bottom as a porter and progressively worked my way throughout to where I am today. It allows for any individual to become whatever they put their mind to. Over the years, the rewards and recognition that the dealerships receive and delivers can be hard to beat when considering other businesses. From the picnics and cookouts to the company holiday parties, the 5/10/15/20-year service awards and trips, holiday/sick/PTO, it all evens itself out in the end. Why would I leave?”

Kimberly Sprout

Bobby Rahal Toyota​ Lexus of Lewistown | September, 2007
Finance Manager

“My former dealership of employ was purchased by the Bobby Rahal Automotive Group. Our employees could not have been given a greater gift. This company far exceeds all of my expectations. Most companies focus only on customer service, forgetting the people in the background who actually provide it. Bobby Rahal Automotive Group is in tune to both great customer service and the well-being of its employees. Why Bobby Rahal Automotive Group? Because I am acknowledged as an individual with opinions and an actual voice. I am not just an employee number.”

Giles Diemert

Bobby Rahal Toyota​ Lexus of Lewistown | September, 2007
Sales Consultant

“I started here at this building under a different owner in 1998, and the dealership was acquired by the Bobby Rahal Automotive Group in 2007. Knowing the history and reputation the Rahal group had, I spoke with the bosses and they had the same honest, and fair goals, and also worked with the same integrity that I do. I knew it would be a smooth transition. Many years later, I am here, and still loving the way I am treated by the company, and how they look at each customer like they are members of our own family. This makes for a great relationship between myself, this company, and the thousands of wonderful clients I have maintained over the years.”
