About Gateway Auto
Founded in 2002, Gateway Auto is a family-owned business that is defined by its relationships to its loyal employees, customers, and suppliers. These relationships make up our Gateway Auto family and are the reason we say we’re “Driven by people.” There's nothing more validating of this than the fact that our business has grown, and still exists, based on word of mouth and word of mouth alone!
 
How do we maintain this business model in such a hyper-connected world? We do things technology can’t by extending ourselves empathetically towards everyone involved. We help people make the decision that’s right for them instead of telling them what’s best for their life. While others sell service, we view our work as an opportunity to protect and enhance the individual freedom of mobility through honest, value-based automotive care. 
 
We’re looking for people who are interested in participating in a system that believes that taking care of others helps you take care of yourself, and that taking care of yourself helps you take care of others. If that’s not you, don’t apply.
