Amber Elenbaas is not only a third generation recycler, she is also what is known as a Millennial or a Generation Y — the generation that was born between the years of 1982-2001. Her generation is the one that is currently flooding the marketplace and changing the dynamics of the work place. It's also the generation, like the ones before it, that is causing some perplexities as they differ in work styles, ways of communicating, and dress code.
Elenbaas started her career in auto recycling by working for her dad, Ron Elenbaas, owner of Pete's Auto and Truck Parts, Inc. They worked together for six years and more than doubled their business's success that Elenbaas says both she and her Dad attribute to the support of their fellow auto recyclers and to attending Counts Business Consulting meetings with Robert and Chad Counts.
