    I worked at Asbury Automotive

    Pros

    Learned what tricks to look out for when buying a car. Did meet some nice folks that quit faster than I did. Learned a hard lesson.

    Cons

    No concern for staff, excessive hours for no pay, they will always find a way to not pay you. Expect you to lie to customers. Expected to make calls to people that are sick of being called by the same dealer for months or even years. No honesty in management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start going to church. Worst culture I have ever heard of. Consider how you would feel if your family was treated how you treat staff and customers.

    I worked at Asbury Automotive full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I do not recommend to work there.

    Cons

    Company not organized. Managers are not trained on how to give on job training or coaching .. they screem all the time at everybody and for anything. They think they should treat people exactly same as they got treated when they hired :)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    managers should spend time on listening to the problems / concern and not only concentrate on how to cut commission for the sales to get higher salary. Also they should spend money on TV Advertisement to be able to seel more cars.

    Talk to the staff like they have something to offer.

    I worked at Asbury Automotive full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work a ton you can make a little money in sales

    Cons

    Constant changing pay plans and cutting pay
    Arrogant management sent in by Asbury to dealership levee
    Could not care at all about time off work/life balance
    Tenure and time with company means nothing....they will happily tell you they do not need you and it is easy to replace you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was at Plaza Motors in St Louis as a top sales performer for about a decade. Asbury is a CRAP company that simply treats employees poorly for no reason. Asbury does not understand the St Louis market, nor do they try to. What a POS place to work you have made what used to be a tremendous place to work.

    Pros

    As long as you are spineless and a puppet, you will fit right in

    Cons

    surprise pay and insurance cuts without warning. Railroad many longtime employees out the door due to 'excessive' vacation time and 'excessive pay/ benefits'.
    Experience and knowledge do not matter, clientele relationships are not respected, total emphasis on the bottom line and who can be sacrificed without thought to improve the bottom line.
    Hopeless and unethical treatment of employees

    I worked at Asbury Automotive full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Got to learn the automotive industry from a retail level.

    Cons

    Horrible hours. 60-70 hrs a week. Work every Saturday and every other Sundays. Managers are not very supportive and a lot of favoritism. High turn-over rate. Sink or swim mentality. Benefits are very minimum.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's okay to focus on the sales numbers but you have to understand there must be self development on the sales person in order to produce great numbers. And stop draining your sales person out. Happy employees are more productive.

    Pros

    There are none that I can think of.

    Cons

    Long hours, old school car sales environment, sub-par used cars, management has no "management" training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overhaul your corporate employees. Overhaul your working environments. Hire consultants to get rid of your old school car sales mentality.

    Pros

    Income is ok but morale is terrible.

    Long hours, use threats and fear to manage employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Majority of managers are morons. They won't listen because they are drinking too much Asbury Kool-Aid.

    Pros

    Payplan is decent, otherwise there isn't much. They have health insurance, and benefits. If you like to work nonstop then this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Your days off are cancelled on a moments notice. There is no warning... you can show up and just be told that you aren't going home. Vacation requests are not granted. If it's a paid holiday that is your only day off and you will have to work extra through the week to make up for it. High turnover. Management uses threats and fear to keep associates in line. Prepare to work sixty to seventy hours a week, and still be disrespected, threatened, and intimidated. Management will remind you that hr has no power because the store gets result.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees like real people and stop using intimidation. Exhausted and frustrated employees do not achieve the results you are looking for. This store needs HR.

    Quit and hire new management
