Crew Carwash wins ‘best place to work’
For the third time in a row, American company Crew Carwash has been honored with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award. This award is based solely on the anonymous input of employees, who review their job, work environment and employer.
“We are humbled and honored to be recognized as one of the Best Places to Work by Glassdoor,” says Carwash Crew-CEO Bill Dahm in a reaction. “What makes this award so special is that it is given to us based on the voice of our team members. They truly set us apart from others in the service industry and we are privileged to have each and every one of them on our team.”
Crew Carwash runs multiple locations throughout Indiana. The company was started by Joe Dahm just after World War II, in 1948. He opened Indiana’s first automated carwash: Mike’s Minit Man. A few years later, Joe’s brother Ed joined the business. At the time, just 18 carwashes were operating in the United States.
Since then, millions of vehicles have passed through the carwash and Crew has become one of the largest carwash companies in the nation.
Still owned by the Dahm family, Crew Carwash continues to grow and innovate to deliver customers with “clean, fast and friendly” service. What did change is care for the environment. They now utilize 40% recycled water and 60% fresh water due to a water reclamation systems that allow Crew to filter, clean and re-use some of the water in their wash process.
To be considered for the U.S. small and medium company category at Glassdoor, a company must have had fewer than 1,000 employees and have received at least 30 ratings across each of the nine workplace attributes. “The world of work is rapidly evolving, fueled by the pandemic and now millions of workers reevaluating their expectations from employers,” says Christian Sutherland-Wong of Glassdoor. On its website, current and former employees voluntarily and anonymously share insights and opinions about their work environments by sharing a company review. Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work were determined using company reviews between October 2020 and October 2021.
