Jim Ellis Automotive Group is thrilled to have been selected as a 2022 Top Workplace by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The Top Workplaces award recognizes the elite workplaces in the Metro-Atlanta area, with results being based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC.
The workplace survey received and completed by employees was anonymous and measured 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization: alignment, execution, and connection, to name a few. Employees had the opportunity to provide rankings on various items and also to provide additional written feedback/review of various company benefit offerings and employment satisfaction areas. Results came back landing Jim Ellis Automotive in a position of being a top workplace in Atlanta.
For over 50 years now, Jim Ellis Automotive Group has offered employment to Atlantans, providing numerous opportunities for career growth within the company.

Additionally, employees often receive giveaways to local events and attractions. Being an employee at Jim Ellis also offers the opportunity to attend various social gatherings hosted by the company.
