Employee Of The Month

Another month has come and gone, and that means that it’s time to announce Mercedes-Benz of Wappingers Falls Employee Of The Month! As we’ve said before, we started our Employee Of The Month program to give recognition to our hard-working employees. Each month an employee is nominated solely by fellow employees, not by the management staff. Employees are nominated by fellow co-workers because these are the people that work side-by-side with them every day, which means they see how hard they work, first hand!

So who did our team choose to recognize this month for their hard work? Please put your hands together for, Mike Giangrasso! Mike is a valued member of our service department and has stood out this month for his hard work and dedication to get the job done right during the busy maintenance season. If your vehicle needs service this season, be sure to schedule your Mercedes-Benz service here at Mercedes-Benz of Wappingers Falls, and have Mike and the rest of the team get your vehicle into tip-top shape! Don’t forget to take a peek at Mike’s short interview below, and take a few minutes to get to know more about Mike and why he loves working for Mercedes-Benz of Wappingers Falls (we don’t blame him)!

October 2019 Employee of the Month: Doreen Ilker

Hello October! It’s a new month and that means that it’s time for us to announce our newest Employee Of The Month here at Mercedes-Benz of Wappingers Falls! Last month, we told you about our first-ever winner, Will Burks and this week we are so excited to announce the second winner of our Employee Of The Month Program! Like we told you last month, our Employee of the Month program is designed to get recognition to our employees who have not only performed well but have stood out to their fellow employees! Yup, you heard that right, the best part about our new program is that the employees are nominated solely by fellow employees and not by the management staff. Which means there’s no favoritism, biases, or choices based on sales, it is purely on how the employee's peers view their hard work.

So without further ado, Octobers Employee Of The Month is Doreen Ilker! Doreen is a valued member of our team. She works in the office helping to make sure the day-to-day work runs smoothly and make sure that we can help customers like you Experience The Difference with us!

Don’t forget to check back in next month to who will be crowned November’s Employee Of The Month. Until then, be sure to take a few minutes to learn a little more about Doreen below! And next time you’re in the store, feel free to stop into the office to say hello to Doreen and let her know what a great job she is doing!

Where Are You From?
Born in Yonkers, have lived in Dutchess County most of my life.
What Drew You To The Automotive Business?
I was a bank teller and had a ”very particular” customer who owned the local Mercedes Dealership and only let me take care of him when he came into the bank. He would wait on line and let other customer’s ahead of him until I was available. I saw the ad in the paper, scheduled an interview with him and he pretty much hired me on the spot. That was 35 years ago.
What’s Your Dream Mercedes-Benz?
I’m not particular to one model Mercedes but loved the 1999 SL that I owned, and have driven an ML now for 16 years and don’t have any desire to drive anything but a Benz.
What’s Your Favorite Part About Working For Mercedes-Benz of Wappingers Falls?
My favorite part of working at Mercedes Benz of Wappingers Falls are the people who work here.
I’ve seen a lot of people come and go but have made many friends here. We are like one big family.
What Is One Thing Your Customers Should Know When Working With You?
I am a ”behind the scenes” employee and don’t get a chance to interact with customer’s on a regular basis but rest assured I am working hard for them in making sure their paperwork is processed in a timely manner and is accurate and their warranty claims get processed.

Our Employee of the Month program is designed to get recognition to our employees who have not only performed well but have stood out to their fellow employees!

With that being said, we are so excited to announce our very first Employee of the Month! Give a big round of applause to, Will Burks! Will works in our service department as a valet.
