What Our People Are Saying

"After three decades in a single industry, I thought I was pigeonholed to a career in telecommunications, but I realized that those years created skill sets that were completely transferable to a different career opportunity. I grew up around cars with a grandfather who owned a Ford dealership, and it really developed my love for automotive. Meineke has allowed me to combine a passion and a skill set and channel that into a dream career. Now Arkansas has an automotive repair option that they can trust."
