Autobell prides itself on being a performance-based company. The more you put into your job, the more you’ll get rewarded. Washing cars is the easy part, but keeping up with payroll, equipment maintenance, schedules, safety checks, and team members make things a bit harder. It doesn’t matter if you are male or female at Autobell, you get rewarded the same.

Autobell employs over 3,000 team members companywide with 92% being male and 8% female. Out of our 83 store managers, we have four female managers who have proven through their performance, that they could successfully run a location and were leveled up as store managers. If you have ever thought about being a manager at Autobell, look at our “Quad Squad” to see stereotypes don’t exist in this company. Female or male, everyone has the same shot at running a location for Autobell.

We asked our “Quad Squad” to share some words of advice for any female thinking about becoming a manager.

Store #35 Newport News, VA – Lauren Marshall – 6-year veteran

"To be a successful female asset to Autobell, you must not let your gender define you; instead, let your gender set you apart. Speak with confidence, ask questions, and keep gaining knowledge. Take on this and any leadership role with your head up high and always lead by example. Oh, and never be afraid to get your hands dirty!"

Store #40 Hendersonville, NC – Nicki Chapman – 4-year veteran

"My advice is to always push forward and never give up even when things get difficult. Always strive for success and never let anyone tell you that you can’t do something"

Store #68 Virginia Beach, VA – Aubrey Webb – 3-year veteran

"I think being a female in this company is pretty unique. We face a lot of challenges every day that outsiders may think we can't handle, but we handle it and come out on top. I'm proud to be a part of the small but elite group of female store managers."

Store #79 Virginia Beach, VA – Sierra Yonker – 6-year veteran

"Women weren't created to do everything a man can do; women were created to do everything a man can't do. Don't focus on what everyone around you can do, focus on what you can do better, and be better than the person standing next to you."
