How The Car Wash Barn uses surveys

Curtis and Mike Emmons are the owners of The Car Wash Barn, a four-location conveyor carwash company located in Killeen, TX. They also own several other companies, including a construction firm, a self-storage business and an entertainment center company. As they have expanded, they have used the ProScan Survey as part of the recruiting process to carefully select the people whose natural abilities fit the job.

Curtis Emmons uses the survey and job model to hire for every position at the carwash, from the operations manager to attendants. Mike Emmons has used the ProScan for hiring in key skill positions such as operations, marketing, human resources and accounting. Both brothers have seen an increase in productivity and professionalism as a result of this approach.
