About Us

Workplace Culture

There's one clear advantage McGrath has over our competition and it is the backbone of the organization: our people! Consumers have a lot of choices when it comes to sales and service, but people choose us for the experience we offer and the enthusiasm our staff has for helping others, as well as each other. A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. Through building the character and confidence of every individual on our team while providing a fun, family atmosphere in which to contribute, the strength of the whole is forged, and it shows in everything we do.

"They want to help people grow, to stay here, to be involved, and they have programs that allow you to do that. The company keeps growing, so why not grow with it?"

Life is much bigger than what happens within the four walls of our dealerships, as is the McGrath culture. Leading by example, the McGrath family modestly demonstrate great compassion for their staff and their community. Whether it be through small events benefiting our own fallen on hard times, or through support, participation or sponsorship of essential programs and causes affecting our community as a whole, making a difference is a pillar of the McGrath mission.
