"Frank - my Dad - built this business on a foundation of high-quality work and exceptional customer service. It's his example that I honour every day here at the shop that still proudly bears his name. For my Dad, success was defined by the relationships he built. Behind the scenes my Mom, Maria, continued with this philosophy when she carried the business forward after my Dad passed. I still define success that way, and so does my team. I think my Dad would be proud that the kids and grandkids of his early clients are still coming here today. I think that means we're still doing it right after all these years."
*Actually, my start date is technically 1967 when I used to help my Dad clean up the machine shop.
"I have been a Master Technician since 2001 having completed my apprenticeship in Germany. When a client smiles, I smile, too. That’s the most rewarding part of the job - helping the client. I think our success can be found in our sense of team at Frank Motors. We support each other on the job and enjoy each other’s company during Frank Motors events. When I’m not at work, you might find me camping, fishing, or renovating my house."
"My career as a technician began with my apprenticeship in the Philippines .In addition to that, I trained in Japan for two years completing the Toyota Specialized Automotive Training Course in December 2000. Shortly after arriving in Winnipeg, I also completed the apprenticeship program at Frank Motors. We all care about the clients here, and I really enjoy when I get to communicate with some of our clients in my native Filipino language. What is most important to me is my family both here and in the Philippines."
"Frank Motors is a great place to work and where I completed my apprenticeship. As members of a team, we help each other to excel and we treat each other with respect. I think this positive attitude extends to how we interact with our clients. Our job is to help our clients make the best possible decisions for their cars. It all starts with a relationship based on trust and good communication."
"After nearly 30 years at Frank Motors, I still love coming to work. And I don't consider a workday complete until I've seen smiles on our clients' faces. For us, client service is extremely important. We know taking your car in for service can really disrupt the day. My job is to make things a little more pleasant by providing each car with a thorough wash before handing back the keys. If you don't see me at the shop, you might find me on the golf course!"
"My goal is to free our clients from worry. For me, that means explaining the repair in plain language so clients have a better understanding of what's going on. I've always loved working with cars as I have been a licensed technician working in the auto industry since 1986 and a Client Service Advisor since 2002. When I'm not at the shop, I like to pass the time fishing and watching sports."
"The best reward is when a client tells you that you've done a great job. When you work at Frank Motors, you get to hear that a lot! The thoughtful service we provide is the key to building long-term relationships with clients. I'm proud to work at Frank Motors, but I also enjoy my down time where you'll find me camping or tinkering with my old Volkswagens.
"One of the best things about working at Frank Motors is when I have a bit of time to have a good conversation with a client, and get to know a bit more about them. I enjoy working with our entire team to ensure the best experience for our clients and a relaxed working atmosphere for our team. We always remember that we fix cars, but our clients are people. When I'm not at work I like to read, camp, fish, and work on home improvements."
"What makes Frank Motors a great place to work is the team. Frank Motors employs an amazing group of professional people who are a joy to work with. The highlight of my day is talking with our customers, especially when they are pleased with our exceptional service. The atmosphere here is very positive and friendly. The team is always willing to offer a helping hand when needed. I find learning new things daily is both rewarding and keeps me challenged in my work. I enjoy spending time with my family and three dogs at our cabin."
"The best part of my job is spending some time every day with our clients. It's easy to stay upbeat around such great people. I really enjoy working with my colleagues at Frank Motors, too. We're a strong group of positive professional people. When I'm not at work, I like to volunteer with my church and the Winnipeg Humane Society – and you might find me fishing or cycling."
"As a Frank Motors shuttle driver, I have the great honour of meeting many fascinating people and the great privilege of learning more about our beautiful city. I stay on the ground these days, but I used to fly and I worked as an air traffic controller, too. When I’m not driving, you’ll find me either in the great outdoors, or watching football, hockey, or horse racing."
"When I stumbled across a Frank Motors ad looking for a part-time driver, the stars aligned perfectly. I love driving, but I'm also impressed by forward-looking companies and I knew that Frank used recycled vegetable oil in some of its vehicles. It’s a great fit for me. Outside of the office, you might find me enjoying birds, playing golf, or spoiling my grandchildren. (My wife and I do that to get back at our kids!)"
"As a bookkeeper, my work is about numbers. But my work place is all about people. From my perch, I see people who enjoy their jobs, love working with the clients, and live their lives with integrity. This is a strong business with strong ethics. I'm proud to work here."
"My experience as a facilitator and consultant has made my work with Frank Motors over the years an opportunity to continue to grow and stretch myself. My responsibilities vary from developing the teams strengths to tackling big projects. I am pleased to be part of such a committed group of people who believe it's not the big leaps we make from time to time, it's the small steps we take day-to-day that effect real change."
"Back in Germany I was a type setter for a newspaper before coming to Canada where I spent 9 years as a parts manager at a Volkswagon dealership, then 7 years as a parts manager at a Volvo dealership before coming to Frank Motors in 1995. As a veteran at Frank Motors, I'm always teaching and I'm always learning. There's never a dull moment, and there have been a lot of personal highlights along the way - especially the opening of our parts warehouse on February 9, 2007. When I'm not at the shop, you might find me dabbling in photography with my old Agfa Click."
"Before moving to Winnipeg in 2007, I worked as an automobile assistant in Germany where I completed my apprenticeship with extensive training in all areas of a repair shop, including the parts warehouse, shop floor, customer service, and sales. What I like about working at Frank Motors is that we focus on building relationships. We want to turn every client into a life-long client. It’s a great atmosphere here - it makes it easy to stay cheerful with clients and colleagues. When I’m not at the shop, I like to spend time with family, friends, and my dog."
"Frank Motors is a really well- organized work place. Our ability to plan well gives our clients confidence that we will deliver the right parts to them on time. There is a great feeling of teamwork here – you can sense it every day in our morning huddle. I enjoy working in the automotive industry because of my experience with working on cars."
"I remember one especially busy day when I had 15 drop-offs and pick-ups around the city. It was fun to organize it all, it's like working on a giant jigsaw puzzle. At Frank Motors, the goal for us is to meet or exceed the clients' needs; I'm proud to be part of that."
“I’ve been working in the automotive business since the age of 14 when I started working as a gas jockey. I went on to get my repair licence in 1974 and managed a few company locations during my career. I’ve worked with lots of different types of people over the years, and what I see at Frank Motors is pretty exceptional. We care about getting the job right, of course, but we also care about respect. It’s how we treat our customers, and it’s how we treat each other.”
