The Continental Automotive Group has been awarded a spot on the Austin American Statesman’s “Top Work Places” list based on workplaces as reviewed by employees. CAG employee comments and votes from Austin Infiniti, Austin Subaru, First Texas Honda, Mercedes-Benz of Austin, Continental Collision Center, and Wholesale Parts Direct are to thank for this award. One of the main reasons CAG won this award is their extensive employee benefits package. Continental Automotive Group is also noted for their “career” possibilities. When other companies have cut back on benefits and laid off staff, the Hardeman’s have stayed true to their mission – taking care of their employees. Today, CAG’s benefits package continues to grow, and there have been no layoffs based on current economic conditions. Read More.Read More
For the month of November, on behalf of our customers, Austin Infiniti is going to donate a brand new bicycle to Bikes For Kids for every brand new Infiniti sold. So come to Austin Infiniti and purchase a new Infiniti and a shiny, new bike will be given to a child in need. JB and Sandy’s Bikes For Kids is in it’s 15th year of providing needy Central Texas children with bikes, locks, and helmets. Starting from humble beginnings, the first year they started they had a goal of 94 bikes. By hustling and getting donations from the community, they were able to purchase 200. Now they are in the range of 900-1,000 bikes per year. The big day of handing out the donated bikes is a couple of days before Christmas, and everyone walks away with a smile on their face.Read More
