    Awesome place to work, great people, and the best company party's

    Service (Current Employee) Grapevine, TX

    ProsPark Place and Mercedes Benz pays you to lease a Car after working there for 3 years, Fun place to work, management is friendly, awesome benefits, 401K, Complimentary life insurance, always providing us with the tools we need, the newest technology at our finger tips, terrific training programs, most of the clients are nice, Park Place rented out medieval times twice, Cowboys Stadium twice, Ranger stadium four or five times, and six flags for company and family parties for employees.

    ConsManagers Sometimes take a long time to move people up mainly because no one ever quits. so it can be hard to move up. hard to trust the sales managers to give you the best employee deal when purchasing pre-owned or new cars. found it better just to purchase elsewhere.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work. and Sales don't pick out Your favorite employees to give better deals to when purchasing cars should be fair to all Employees.

    Experts in excellence? Not so much....

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros-Good pedigree
    -Well organized
    -Focus on continuous improvement for the customer
    -Modern

    Cons-Poor commission structure
    -No room for advancement
    -Poor management
    -No concern for employee welfare

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a more human look at the way you pay employees and perhaps you will retain more of them. It is evident that the company care for its clients, but the treatment of employees is sub par.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    "Experts in Excellence." The idea is right, The execution: A step above neolithic incompetency.

    Valet/Greeter (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

    Pros-Base pay is decent, but taxes and deductions eat it up quickly.

    -Good benefits, Incentives.

    -Often busy pace, There is always something to do.

    Cons-The hours and general scheduling if left alone can leave a lot to be desired, Often chewing up your whole day.

    -Promotion is seemingly possible, but unfortunately with as many deciding factors as there are in the automobile service, and sales industry, it is very easy to slip up and have that be the cause of getting passed over for a promotion or bonus.

    -The constant feeling of micromanagement is felt in just about everything that one as a Valet does. (The Greeters tell Valet's what to do, The Asst. Lead Valet tells Valet's what to do. The Lead Valet tells Valet's what to do, The Asst. Service Managers, or Service Advisors usually don't get involved, but their higher-ups, Service Managers will step in and tell Valet's what to do. Even the Service Director, and up on higher will tell Valet's what to do. )

     In short, there is almost as many management figures as there are Valet's, And at times it can be very disconcerting, and even irritating to go take care of a task and have 5 different levels of management ask/tell you about it.

    -The Asst. Service Managers at times can be lackadaisical in their response to a waiting client on the service drive.

    -As with any environment where there are many in the same position, there is the usual element of competitive smearing (Someone in your same position making you look bad in front of management or fellow peers), and gossip. Word gets to management quickly over any little quibble.

    Advice to Senior Management-Allow one to take ownership over their work and perfect it.
    -Make promotion an even more attractive and attainable incentive, not just a carrot on a stick in front of the proverbial donkey.
