Everyone Pumps Gas At JVM; Necessary In All Organizations

I have a friend who graduated from a prestigious MBA program and got a job at Chevron. The first thing Chevron had him do was pump gas (work at a gas station). He is now a highly successful senior manager at Chevron, and his skill was no doubt enhanced by the fact that he rose through the ranks doing everything, despite his education.

There is nobody at JVM who has not pumped gas, or done everything at every level. We think this is critical for success.

We interact with many mortgage banks where the senior managers have never pumped gas or haven’t pumped gas for so long they forgot how. And that is exactly why we can run circles around all of those companies.

All managers need “gas pumping” experience, and all subordinates need to be willing to pump gas, no matter how talented they are.
