Taking on additional job responsibilities can either go really well, or really bad. In the case of Eide Ford Assistant Lot Manager, Damon Wanner, taking on extra work has proven to be a good thing.
When Damon found out that his supervisor was going to be out of the office for an extended period of time, he took on the tasks and responsibilities of his supervisor in addition to all of his current job duties.
Not everyone can handle additional responsibility, but Damon proved he was up for the challenge.
“Damon is an incredible asset to our team. He’s taken on more responsibility on the lot and does it all with a smile and never says anything bad,” says Used Car Manager, Corey Rennich.
