Proud of where we work
We live our values every day
At GST, we don’t just talk about our values, we live them. Our values-driven culture sets us apart from other companies. Our work environment is known for integrity, accountability, teamwork and career development.
We value our Associates.
Our #1 asset is our associates. We are people that partner and collaborate for the common good of our company. GST is committed to the development of our associates and providing opportunities for building a career. We provide our associates extensive training resources to help them reach their maximum potential and conduct monthly rallies to keep them informed.
To attract and retain top talent, we offer competitive salaries and have a Pay-for-Performance compensation strategy that drives a culture of excellence. Additionally, all eligible associates receive an annual discretionary bonus that rewards their individual and team performance for attaining their personal and the company's shared goals and objectives.
We strive to deliver Customer Satisfaction.
Our highly skilled associates help us provide value to the dealerships in our region and deliver the superior quality that Toyota drivers rely on.
We regard our Suppliers as essential team members.
Our associates maintain strong relationships with Toyota Motor Sales USA and our suppliers by collaborating with them on a daily basis to ensure that our customers, Toyota dealerships and Toyota drivers, receive exceptional customer service.
We are accountable for the Quality of our work.
Every year all GST associates are encouraged to submit nominations for the Robert P. Surginer Award for Quality. Named after one of our former associates, this award is presented to the individual or team whose behavior exceeds the expectations of our values and leverages this behavior resulting in significant improvement in quality, service, productivity or profitability.
We demonstrate Integrity in all we do.
Our associates are personally accountable for doing the right thing, which means not only measuring our actions by what is legal, but also by the highest standard of ethics.
We provide Leadership as a company and as individuals.
We are dedicated to achieving excellence through the loyal efforts of talented and enthusiastic associates. We lead through competence, innovation, teamwork and an eagerness to excel. Every year all GST associates are encouraged to submit nominations for the GST Innovation Award which is presented to the individual or team who initiates projects that help GST grow or become more competitive.
We create an environment of Fun and Pride.
Work Hard. Play Harder. We provide a work environment that challenges each of us to excel in all we do. We play hard and embrace the necessity for having fun. Associates frequently participate in activities to drive fun and pride in the workplace, such as ice cream socials, holiday celebrations, blood donation drives, community service events and fundraisers, all-associate day celebrations and Ride N' Drive events. Ride N' Drive events are an opportunity for our associates to experience new Toyota vehicles first-hand. It's no secret—we are extremely proud to be a part of this organization.
