Here at Cox, our employees are what makes us tick. A big part of our company culture is knowing that everyone has a story, and those stories are always worth hearing. I recently spoke with Ashlee Cole – a mechanic at Cox Automotive – and she was happy to share her story in a rapid-fire interview.
Shanon: Hi Ashlee, thanks for your time today! Where are you from?
Ashlee: Hi Shanon! I'm from Humboldt, Tennessee
S: How long have you been with Cox?
A: Almost 7 months now.
S: In a nutshell, what is your job?

S: What advice would you have for someone thinking of a career at Cox?
A: It’s a great choice. Cox not only offers great benefits, but they also offer their integrity.
S: Give me an example of a time you've felt supported at Cox.

A: I can’t wait to see what the future holds with Cox Automotive!
