Fast Convenient Service

Ken Wise, owner, Texaco/Chevron Xpress Lube
Ken Wise owns the Texaco/Chevron Xpress Lube in Newberg. Ken and his crew work on a good share of the cars and trucks in this small town between Portland and the Oregon Coast.
Convenience is key, says Ken – getting vehicles in, servicing them right, then getting them back on the road quickly.
Recently Ken lost some good employees and found himself working 70 hour weeks – falling further and further behind. Ken needed to find good employees but had a hard time.
“Even if I had copious numbers of resumes and so forth – which I didn’t really have. I didn’t really have a whole lot of applicants to choose from.  The economy is getting better so the job pool is really shrinking.”
Ken needed people quickly, so he turned to WorkSource Oregon and the professionals at the Newberg Employment Department Office. Within the space of hours, Ken had qualified candidates coming to his door, ready to work.
“I got a response from within hours of sending an email. Boom!  My new employee is working out fine.”
Ken liked the speed and the convenience of working with WorkSource Oregon and the new iMatchSkills application.
“The Employment Office is getting very streamlined. The local staff is very helpful – faxing things back and forth. I didn’t have to take away time to go down to the Employment Office – you can do everything over phone or fax (or Internet) and it usually works out real well.”
So if you want fast, good quality work done on your vehicle – visit Ken in Newberg. If you want fast, good quality candidate for your business, contact WorkSource Oregon.
