Hi, my name is Melissa Lacasella and this is my 10th year at Car People. As a former Service Advisor for 7 years locally,  I love helping people confidentially with their careers.

No matter where you work or who you work for your contact with me will be 100% confidential.  You are my customer and have the right to look for a new job if that’s your choice but I don’t recruit people.

I look forward to helping you confidentially as a customer with your Career, Resume, Interview Coaching and Compensation. We make it easy for you!  This is our 35th year in business.

We have the contacts! Many of the Dealer Principals and General Managers I work with are long term customers. Many of the  Fixed Operations Directors and Service  Managers I work with are people we have placed in their jobs or have long term relationships with.



Placed Fixed Operations Director

Melissa did a good job of listening to my situation and what type of job I wanted at this point in my career. I didn’t want to just jump into something.  She was very aware of what I wanted and found me two opportunities.  She did a good job of tailoring those jobs to my needs. Melissa placed me as a Fixed Operations Director and I love it here!

I’ve never used a service like you guys and I must say I’m glad I did. You guys are very knowledgeable, helpful and very friendly. Thank you, I’m glad I was referred to you!

Ms. Hillary Levet
Regional Corporate Fixed Operations Director

Melissa carefully vetted Service Manager candidates prior to giving me a list of people to consider. She provided me with references from former employers so I could choose what Applicants I wanted to talk to.  The references she checked were very valuable to us. It saved me a lot of time.  Melissa significantly reduced the time it took to find and hire a new Service Manager. She made it easy for  me.

One of the things I really liked is every time I called for Melissa she was available and I got right through to her. If I emailed or texted her I could always reach her.  Melissa is consistent  and that is one of the things I love about her. She is wonderful.  When I was in a high stress situation she’d calm me right down and took care of business. Melissa is definitely worth what we pay her for.

Comment from a Hiring Manager



I called to let you guys know what a great job Melissa did for me finding a Service Advisor. She did a fantastic job and made it easy. She is really on top of things. What really stood out was when I called for Wade and Melissa told me he was on vacation, she then said “I can help you.” When I got home that night I thought to myself, I wish my employees would say that to customers asking for me!

Placed Service Manager | New Car Dealership

Comment from a Placed Customer

I contacted Wade about finding a new job and he did all of the work for me. It was seamless. He had quality interviews to send me on. When I went to an interview it was like I already had my foot in the door, like a 3rd interview. He made it a lot easier for me, I hadn’t interviewed for a new job in a long time.

Wade works hard, this is the second time he has helped me. He just got me my first Assistant Service Manager position managing the Advisors and Techs with the Service Manager. Wade’s a great long term career advisor for you.

Car People is a very good Service for Advisors and Managers to find a new job. Wade is in touch with everybody and made me feel I was important. He helped me stand up when I was beaten down by my current employer.
