    Pros

    Great company with family owned feeling for a fortune 200 company. We just sold our 10,000,000 car in 18 years. This is a first for any company. I have 15 years experience in auto sales.

    Cons

    I cannot think of anything.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the goid work

    Pros

    Plethora of hours to gain, professional work environment, Excellent sales manager team(s). Roseville automall location is awesome! Travel time included. Great pay. This company believes in hiring and rising from within.

    Cons

    Not enough trees for shade when selling cars in the heat of summer. Other than that no further complaints

    Advice to Management

    Keeping benching deals, and keeping the atmosphere positive and strong. Gen Y are positive and management keeps the job very interesting already.

    Pros

    Autonation, from my experience, takes good care of its employees. Depending on which store you work for, communication amongst employees and management is usually very good.

    Cons

    Sometimes employees don't handle guests properly. It is difficult for a customer to call and speak with a real person rather than recordings and voicemails. Receptionists are constantly taking messages and promising call backs but it rarely happens.

    Advice to Management

    Return phone calls sooner or lose business.

    Pros

    Great people, great incentives. Promotions are possible. Benefits and 401k is pretty competitive.

    Cons

    Hours. % of commission made. Not so much to do with the company as it is the market the company is forced to compete in. Everyone wants a deal. To remain in business, we can't overcharge.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing. So far so good. It all depends on the dealership you end up working with. Every dealer is different and every manager with it. I was fortunate where it all worked out for me.

    Pros

    *Decent pay.
    *Job was easy. Lots of scanning, since everything goes to Texas these days.
    *Environment was awesome. I loved my coworkers.

    Cons

    *Benefits are terrible. This is probably not an AutoNation thing, as much as an Obamacare thing, though. Very expensive.
    *Not much room for advancement. With only 2 people in the office, moving up is hard to do.
    *Pay raises. I worked there for 8 years with maybe 3 raises.

    Advice to Management

    I loved my managers. I don't have anything to add here, really. My controller was laid-back, didn't breathe down my neck, and took the time to explain to me WHY we do what we do. If we had to move money to another account, he explained why. Assets, liabilities, etc. He was quick to teach. I have nothing but good things to say about him! And upper management wasn't so bad either! They always laughed and joked with me. I sincerely loved working at AutoNation.

    I worked at AutoNation full-time

    Pros

    I worked there for a little under a year because of leaving to attend my master's program. Selling cars is hard work, but they offer a competitive commission plan and treat their employees with respect.

    Cons

    You won't really have a "normal" schedule. Don't expect to ever have a Saturday off.
