The Importance of Company Culture in our Team

The Importance of Company Culture in our Team

  Happy March from our team at John's Automotive Care La Mesa! For this month's blog, we wanted to stray away from a typical automotive blog & highlight what we are doing to promote & increase our positive company culture. This topic is rarely discussed in the automotive world, despite its importance for all businesses. If you've ever been to either of our John's Automotive Care locations, you will likely have seen how important a positive work environment is for our team & our wonderful customers. As a company, our foundation is built upon giving back to the communities that raised us, specifically within John Eppstein, the owner of John's Automotive Care. John follows the "pay it forward" approach and credits this company mindset to our success.    What does "paying it forward" truly mean? Community building. If there's one thing our team does well (besides auto repairs) it's being ... read more

Driving on Thanksgiving? What You Need to Know!

Driving on Thanksgiving? What You Need to Know!

Is The Turkey Browned Enough? Most commonly, we think of mom worrying in the kitchen about the turkey, if you will have marshmallows on your sweet potato casserole, or what to put in the stuffing this year. What we forget is to think about everyone making the drive to grandma’s house packed like sardines in a car full of family and friends, for what could be a long drive ahead.   Wednesday, a Popular Travel Day If you want to take the stress out of the series of “Are we there yet?” leave a day early and book a hotel room for the night. Simply taking this small head start on your travel adventure can increase your traveling pleasure substantially. You may encounter traffic; however, you will have enough downtime between Wednesday’s drive and Thursday’s feast to recover. There is nothing like arriving at grandma’s house fresh with everyone wearing smiles. That is a priceless gift to yourself and the relatives that you don’t get to see ve ... read more
