LOC Employees Of The Month May 2022

The purpose of the Employee of the Month Program is to recognize employees who have served in an exceptional manner by exemplifying outstanding service through his or her work and exhibiting a positive and supportive attitude. Lucas Oil Center is proud to honor this month’s employees of the month from our East side location, our West side location, and our Nitro Car Wash.

Employees who are chosen for this honor must meet certain criteria in four categories: Attitude and Commitment, People Skills, Work Performance, and Personal Traits.

Under attitude and commitment, we look at the following:

  • Dedicated to fulfilling job responsibilities
  • Demonstrates good customer service skills
  • Consistently dependable and is punctual in reporting to work
  • Active involvement in work related activities
  • Serves as a role model to others
  • Goes above and beyond the requirements of the job

We felt that each one of these people exemplifies these qualities, making a positive impact on both our customers and their co-workers.

Lucas Oil Center East May 2022 Employee of the Month, Ryan Barbosa, Lead Lube Technician.

Ryan Barbosa — affectionately referred to as Barb, Barbs, Barbussy, or grouchapotomus 🙂 — is described by his co-workers as a reliable teammate that always shows up. This is meant literally (he is always here for his shift) but always showing up when a person needs extra help, an explanation, or a little extra training. Ryan is a hard worker that knows how to get the job done and understands the importance of doing the process the proper way without any shortcuts. Ryan has a calm and easy demeanor when explaining a service to a customer.

Customer’s feel re-assured after Ryan has given a clear and professional delivery about their vehicle. As a Top Side Shop Lead, Ryan understands the importance of teamwork and keeping a positive attitude to keep the employees engaged.

He takes his role as “mentor” very seriously and displays his leadership both on the clock and off. Donnie is an excellent example of a true team player and a cheerleader to every single employee at Lucas Oil Center.

Donnie is described by his coworkers and Manager as being ethical, honest, and caring in everything he does. “Donnie is the true definition of a true and honest mechanic while being a great role model to our technicians.” Donnie steps up to be a mentor in life not just work. On many occasions, Donnie has stepped in to help a struggling employee whether it be work related or personal.
