GREENWICH, Conn. — The Carwash boasts high employee retention rates and strives to treat workers like its customers.

GREENWICH, Conn. — Splash Car Wash trains employees to help them move up the ranks, garnering a “Top Workplaces” ranking, according to the Connecticutt Post.

The business trains employees in its classroom at one location, but it also provides on-the-job training, said the article.

Rather than focus solely on a college education, Splash hires people with good attitudes and aptitudes.  It looks for people who follow instructions and have a desire for more than their current job, stated the article.

CEO and owner Mark Curtis said in the article, “We hire for the attitude and train for the skill.”

“I believe the vast majority of people want to do a good job,” Curtis said in the article. “They don't do a good job if they're not respected by management or don't understand how to do a good job or why something should be done.”

The business has one of the highest employee retention rates in the industry. One worker has been employed at the wash for 25 years, some for 20, and some for 15, noted the article.

Splash has 16 locations and employs more than 120 people.
