Perks and Programs

We asked JM Family Enterprises, Inc. to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Anniversary Celebration Weekend: JM Family treats associates celebrating milestone service anniversaries and their guests to an all-inclusive weekend retreat at a five-star beachfront resort in Florida. Chairman and CEO Colin Brown refers to this annual tradition as “the most important weekend of the year for our company.”
  • Companywide Internal Minimum Wage: In 2015, JM Family established a minimum wage of $16 per hour. More than 400 associates received a pay increase as a result. Plus, the company raised salaries for more than 620 additional associates to account for compression; provide equity between jobs; and to recognize tenure, experience, and performance.
  • Commitment to Health & Well-being: Nine onsite Health and Wellness Centers keep JM Family associates and their dependents feeling their best. Company doctors can also be reached 24/7 through a dedicated help line. In addition, associates and spouses can earn up to $500 in annual incentives for participating in wellness activities, including preventive care, regular exercise and smoking cessation programs.
  • Preparing for Retirement: JM Family contributes up to 15% of associates’ compensation into retirement savings programs every year, including 3% automatic 401(k) and 12% Profit Sharing contributions. The company also provides a defined pension plan and retiree medical benefits. In addition, associates are enrolled in an automatic increase program that boosts individual 401(k) contributions by 1% annually up to 10%.
  • Supporting the Community: Associates can earn a $50 – $1,000 donation to the nonprofit of their choice as part of our Dollars for Doers volunteer program. Last year, we awarded $56,660 on behalf of our associates to 148 deserving organizations! Associates may also take a paid day off every year to help a nonprofit of their choice.
  • Assistance for Growing Families: JM Family’s Parental Leave Policy provides 12 weeks fully paid maternity leave, 4 weeks fully paid paternity leave, 12 weeks fully paid leave for primary adoptive caregivers, and 4 weeks fully paid leave for non-primary adoptive caregivers. In addition, our adoption benefit is $10,000 per child.
  • Vehicle Purchase Plans: All JM Family associates and their family members may purchase or lease new Toyota or Lexus vehicles at deep discounts. They can also score deals on parts, accessories and warranties and take advantage of free SirusXM radio.
  • Flying High with Corporate Planes: JM Family’s fleet of corporate aircraft is available to associates who need to travel between business locations. Most trips return to our hangar on the same day, so associates can enjoy dinner with their families. In 2016, our planes flew 7,363 passengers for business-related travel.
  • Associates Helping Associates: Associates Helping Associates brings us together in times of need. Funded by the company and associates, the program provides tax-free financial support when someone experiences a significant hardship – like the loss of a home, passing of a relative or unexpected emergency. To date, 375 associates have received $688,500 in assistance.
  • Making Spirits Bright: All associates receive a percentage of JM Family’s profits through generous bonuses handed out by management on the first Friday in December, affectionately known as “FFID.” Depending on company performance, second and sometimes third bonus checks are distributed!

How to Get Hired

We asked JM Family Enterprises, Inc. for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.

What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

Understanding how we achieve results within the JM Family culture is what makes our associates successful. We look for individuals who demonstrate the attributes that will support and drive our organization forward. We keep our culture at the center of the recruiting process, and we employ techniques that enable us to evaluate what skills and experience candidates can develop. We also use behavioral interviewing to gain a better understanding of whether individuals have demonstrated characteristics that align with our core values in previous positions. Our goal is to hire and retain people who can develop not only in their careers but also positively contribute to our unique culture and organization as a whole.

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

People stand out when they show a dedicated interest in our company and culture. When their core values and beliefs align with ours, the transition to an associate is seamless and sets both parties up for long-term success. Candidates who have researched JM Family and understand our history, mission, and focus on giving back will put themselves ahead of the competition. Individuals who demonstrate a sincere interest in who we are and what we do will have a head start when seeking opportunities to join our family.

Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

We are always seeking talented candidates who have diverse backgrounds and perspectives, and we also focus on those who are bilingual and have served in our Armed Forces. Some positions we anticipate filling this year include Data Science, Information Technology Infrastructure, Finance, Automotive Service and Sales.

What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?

JM Family is proud of our company history, culture and the many accomplishments of our associates - both at work and within the community. Interested candidates can research our company on or through our social media accounts such as LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. We also host and attend job fairs where individuals can learn about how we do business and our commitment to always "do it better!" In addition, JM Lexus welcomes walk-in applicants and will even schedule tours of the facility for those interested.
