    Company car and good benefits. Free gas as a manager.

    Pros

    Decent pay with bonus incentives for selling. Get to drive a variety of cars. Employee and family discount is great. Overtime is always nice also.

    Cons

    10 hour days are exhausting, especially when you have to help clean cars and be on your feet all day. Working on weekends and cleaning the cars myself because of cutbacks to staff is annoying. Always having to sell something is repetitive.

    Advice to Management

    It's hard to do more with less. Cutting hours then implementing new procedures that take more time is counter productive. Computer program is outdated.

    Pros

    The exposure is great. There are plenty of resources at your disposal and you learn the fundamentals of management. Car privileges!

    Cons

    horrible pay and lack of training process. Limited mobility in other department and little growth opportunity. Horrible bonus structure. In a nutshell, overworked and under compensated.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time with your new managers to ensure proper training and success.

    Pros

    There is always something different to deal with. Have to be good at troubleshooting, and working with people. Of all the places I have worked, I get along with my coworkers here the best.

    Cons

    Always expecting employees to work overtime. Very fast paced with little downtime between calls, as it is a call center. Because of this, while there is "scheduled" time for training, it is difficult to get that training done.

    Advice to Management

    It is my understanding that, just in my workcenter, our CIO has been "sitting" on three openings that my supervision wants to advertise for hiring (now needing 4 because someone just recently quit). He needs to approve those so people can get hired and trained as it takes time to train personnel.
