    I worked at AutoNation full-time

    Pros

    I worked there for a little under a year because of leaving to attend my master's program. Selling cars is hard work, but they offer a competitive commission plan and treat their employees with respect.

    Cons

    You won't really have a "normal" schedule. Don't expect to ever have a Saturday off.

    Pros

    AutoNation has many many locations so there is always room to advance or even just transfer to a different location. They have great benefits, time off policies, and on job training. Most of the employees and managers are very friendly, open minded, and easy to work with.

    Cons

    Most of the positions are supporting retail so the hours can be long.

    Pros

    Welcoming people, excellent location in downtown Ft Lauderdale, gave me lots of freedom to shape projects and pick what I wanted to work on (I was the only summer intern in the Marketing department)

    Cons

    Internship lacked structure, sometimes there wasn't any work to do, office structure is very siloed

There are a wide range of career opportunities at AutoNation. Their positive work force along with their innovative outlook makes this company, a company worth working for! If you are looking to build a rewarding career, I highly recommend AutoNation as a potential employer.

    Pros

    I would recommend taking a job at AutoNation. I am amazed at the quality of the team - both coworkers and leadership. I also have the privilege of working on both sides of the corporation - at the store level and corporate level. It is such a pleasure to work with individuals that I continually learn from, and more importantly, look up to. Everyone is more than willing to help each other, step in for one another when needed, and share ideas. The support of the team I am in is beyond more than I have ever seen in a company. My management at AN is supportive, encouraging, and talented beyond words. They take the time to guide, teach, and grow each and every one of their employees. The company does a great job of training and developing. I am blessed and humble to be working for such a GREAT company. One that wants every employee not only to succeed but gives us the tools, knowledge and training to make that happen. I bleed AutoNation!!!

    Pros

    The list goes on and on of why I would recommend taking a job at AutoNation. I would say the most important would have to be the quality of the team - both coworkers and leadership. I had the pleasure of working with individuals that I learned from, and more importantly, looked up to. Everyone was more than willing to help each other, step in for one another when needed, and share ideas. The quality of the team I came into was greater than I had ever seen in a company. My management at AN was supportive, encouraging, and talented beyond words. They took the time to guide, teach, and grow each and every one of their employees. The company does a great job of training and developing. They truly take pride in their staff and know that they are the backbone of the company. AutoNation has a way of blending the perks of a large, Fortune 200 company (resources, training, career growth opportunities, benefits, accountability), and the feel of a family owned business (company culture, teamwork, care for their employees, meaningful coaching/talent reviews). I consider my time with this company the most beneficial in my career growth!!

    Cons

    I don't really have any cons - I had an overall, wonderful experience at AutoNation.
