    Sales Manager (Current Employee)
    Buffalo, NY

    ProsADUSA promotes from within. They are a growing national company along the east coast. Advancement opportunities are available for those who excel at their job. ADUSA also like to hire salespeople with no prior auto sales experience. Health, dental and vision coverage options are available at all coverage levels and ADUSA contributes toward the health care cost. Transferring from store to store is available.

    ConsTypical automotive hours. Open 7 days a week 9-8. 401k option is available however there are no matching contributions.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It starts at the top

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Buffalo, NY

    ProsThere are some good people at the store level, as anywhere

    ConsThe CEO promises the world, delivers nothing. Never gets anything done, extremely weak work ethic. Uses conference calls and tired cliche's as a replacement for leading, public shaming and bully tactics replace management. Always an excuse with this guy and its never his fault.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBring in a CEO that wants to get something done

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

    its ok - I learned a few good things

    Customer Care Representative (Former Employee)
    Victor, NY

    Proshands on training, good team environment in that specific department, decent people to work with. Manager was in tune, calm and not micro-manager and over all a good leader. Earning potential can be good

    Conshours were crappy. Nights and weekends were mandatory, general manager would humiliate people to make a point. Although that wasn't my department, the hostility and morale in the dealership was depressing. No boundaries with regard to inappropriate conversations and jokes from the sales and service guys. The departments are run very differently, makes it hard to feel comfortable or even want to be "promoted". You don't know what to expect next. Not a long term job for the career minded.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper managment needs to be more involved with day to day operations. Be a little more selective on who you hire on your sales team and managers. I saw some of the sleeziest people be highly recognized for a job well done and protected. Downer for those who follow rules and have good ethics.
