DECEMBER 12, 2011
Recognition Given by The Dallas Morning News to Top Dallas-Fort Worth Employers
DALLAS — For the third consecutive year, Interstate Battery System of America has been recognized as one of Dallas-Fort Worth's Top 100 Places to Work by The Dallas Morning News. The Dallas wholesale/retail battery distribution company is one of 34 area companies to make the list each of the past three years.
"Team member events are some of the things that set us apart," said Carlos Sepulveda, president and CEO of Interstate Battery System of America. "Our Brand Promise Day celebration each spring gives everyone a chance to have fun and to recommit ourselves to our brand promise of being Outrageously Dependable®. Other events include segments like Dancing with the VPs — similar to the Dancing With the Stars television show — and a rock-paper-scissors game to win a big-screen TV."
Among the top 25 large companies in Dallas-Fort Worth, the survey lists Interstate Batteries 14th in the Top Places to Work poll.
The Dallas Morning News' list was compiled from data submitted by 42,369 people from 215 companies who returned surveys and were asked whether they agree with 23 statements about pay, benefits, managers and more. The newspaper's research partner, WorkplaceDynamics of Exton, Pa., develops these surveys nationally. D-FW workers rated their jobs 8.2 percent higher than the national average on two statements: "I feel genuinely appreciated at this company," and "My pay is fair for the work I do."
