Westlie Motors in Minot, ND, didn’t hesitate when it came to deciding if they should hire Lee Eggen, an Advanced Automotive student at Quentin N. Burdick Job Corps, as a Work-Based Learning III student after a successful WBL II at Westlie Motors. Bob Campus, Service Manager at Westlie Motors, said Lee was hired because of his good work ethic and ability to grasp things quickly. Bob Campus says that Lee’s main strengths are capability of comprehending things and his willingness to work all the time. Lee’s position at Westlie Motors is Apprenticeship in the Service Department, which entails working on diesel pickups and drivability on all vehicles.
Bob Campus also says that Lee has many other great characteristics, such as mechanically inclined, very teachable, gets along with everyone and always willing to help anyone whom asks him. Campus also says that Lee is employable, has a professional appearance and keeps his area clean.
Bob Campus has been asking Lee to commit to staying in Minot and becoming a permanent employee, as the owner at Westlie Motors has purchased an apartment complex just for his employees to rent until they can find permanent housing. “Westlies Motors really wants Lee Eggen to stay,” said Campus.
