CARDONE started in 1970 with six full-time employees. We’ve now grown to more than 6,000. Each one of us is uniquely gifted. Each one of us is expertly qualified. Each one of us is a vital member of the CARDONE team.
Together, we are a force in the remanufacturing marketplace. We are artists, technical mavens, planners, gearheads and masters of all things automotive. We’re relentless thinkers, mad geniuses, hard workers, patient perfectionists, and impassioned idealists.
We play softball together, cook out together, and celebrate life together. Our Daily Take-5s encourage us to be thoughtful employees while teaching us ways to be better people. And our weekly chapels are an opportunity to discover faith-filled inspiration and spiritual rejuvenation.
And we’re loyal—because above all else we feel valued.
“Valuing people by helping them develop, while focusing on their strengths and what’s right with a person, promotes a positive and productive environment where people and business grow.”
The CARDONE commitment to the team is most evident in our high-quality training and coaching, which we provide to our employees.
Because our team takes all shapes and sizes, we believe training should do the same. Our training is not a “one-size-fits-all” approach to career advancement. Instead, it’s a personal path each employee creates to reach his or her individual professional goals.
Developing people is no gimmick at CARDONE. It’s woven into the DNA of our culture. From the beginning, founder Michael Cardone Sr. would gather people at a workstation to talk to them about the principles of our business and explain the ways they could incorporate those principles into their work and lives.
Helping people develop is a value we continue to proudly carry out in support of every CARDONE employee.
People who are given an opportunity to learn and advance feel more highly valued. In return, they tend to respect others more and develop deeper loyalty to each other.
When we hire people, we look for three things: character, commitment, and a teachable attitude. We consider it our job to help employees discover their strengths and latent talents and we encourage them to aim higher for themselves.
Our approach has been to give an opportunity for growth and advancement to one of our own whenever possible. This strategy promotes varied careers and career changes for our employees within our business.
CARDONE promotes people on the basis of their skill development and performance rather than increasing their salaries based on their longevity with the company.
