    Great income potential, but too much down time

    I worked at AutoNation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great earning potential if you are good at following up with customers and don't mind being pushy.

    Cons

    Way too much downtime, and the schedule is awful. Expect to work every single weekend, and most holidays. Some stores require sales associates to work "bells" twice per week, which means you open the store and stay until closing (typically 11 hours). If you do not sell, you do not get paid. Any draw that you receive is promptly taken out of your next commission check. Beware female sales associates: this field is dominated by males and there is strong potential that you will not be treated fairly. Thick skin is a must. Foul language at meetings seems to be acceptable to upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat all associates fairly. If employee "A" is reprimanded for performance or poor customer survey, then hold employee "B" accountable for the same issues. Period.

    No opinion of CEO
