One of the most common things people say to me when they learn that I
work at REC TEC Grills is "Man, you guys look like you have fun over
there". Well, we do. That doesn't mean we don't work hard. We absolutely
do. However, Ray, Ron, and Ben (Our owners and General Manager) have
created an atmosphere that truly makes it fun to come to work. We are
certainly not just punching a clock, we have the opportunity to be
creative and actually see some of our ideas come to life. That is really
cool, but the aspect of REC TEC that stands out to me the most is the
teamwork. When I'm taking an order with a local customer, 2 or 3 of the
other guys immediately jump up to fill the order and load the customer's
car while I am assisting the customer. When there is extra work to be
done, Ben never has to beg people to stay late...they just do it. Now,
there are great perks. We are paid well, and bonuses are given when
people go over and above the call of duty. And, of course, we are
constantly grilling up great food for the entire crew. Mix in the above
ingredients and you have the perfect recipe for A True Family Atmosphere.
I'm a stat guy from my sports background. And, the number that illustrates the terrific atmosphere we have built at REC TEC the most is 0. Zero stands for the number of employees that have quit in the nearly 9 years REC TEC has been in existence.
Think about that for a minute.
Obviously REC TEC has had to let a few go over the years. However, we have never had an employee leave their job. Any business owner would be astonished to hear that, if they believed it at all. You may have a better chance of winning the lottery than running a business the size of REC TEC and never have an employee become unhappy enough that they felt the need to go elsewhere.
I know some of you are thinking...that's great, but I don't work for Rec Tec, so how does this affect me? Well, if you are a REC TEC customer it's very important. It means that you are working with a company that has very little turnover. Therefore, the employees are extremely knowledgeable about the products REC TEC sells. It should also give you confidence that you are dealing with a group of people that want you to enjoy your grill and will do anything in their power to make that happen. Sure, we have an amazing grill, but the customer service and the family atmosphere you get when you become an owner of a REC TEC is something some businesses strive for and dream about, but it's a reality that lives at REC TEC everyday.
