    I have been working at Hendrick Automotive Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Historically was a great place. Very strong benefits if grandfathered in. Good comp if in the right areas and you can sacrifice all time.

    Cons

    Sweeping salary reductions to increase corporate bottom line. Less family culture than that preached by Sr. and Exec. Management. Terrible work/life balance if you have or want a family. Sales consultants treated as quick expendable numbers. Constant in-your-face with execs big earnings and car collections while many struggle to make ends meet. Execs have great holidays, not others. Downhill since shifting CEO assignment to the once fired banking exec.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace the once positive culture.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source - interviewed at Hendrick Automotive Group in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Show up friendly, articulate, teachable, trainable, and ready for hard work. The usual things like dress professional, ask questions about the company and the role, ask in there is room for growth and upward mobility. If you have a call center or appointment setting experience, that's a plus. If you KNOW someone at that particular dealership, it goes a long way, also.

    Interview Questions
    • What's your previous experience? Can you read from a script? When can you start? Pretty easy stuff, especially when they need "warm bodies" to sit in seats.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. The managers tell you what they offer, take it or leave it. However, with hard work, the commission structure can be sweet.
