    Pros

    In it's respective industry, it provides multiple localized opportunities. Strong company with rooted foundation. People are good to work with and management is willing to listen and help.

    Cons

    It is a multi-store, nationwide company, and you(the individual) can quickly become lost in the everyday grind with regards to recognition and advancement. The HUGE executive team seems blinded by the sheer size of the talent pool they have at their disposal.

    Advice to Management

    Consistency across the board at the store level. There are multiple different policies that float around from store to store, which can make relationships between stores and business to business relationships more of a strain than they need to be.


  2. Has promise. Lots of operational efficiency issues.

    I worked at AutoNation full-time

    Pros

    Nationwide presence. Good inventory. AutoNation Express is promising - if dealer level supports it properly.

    Cons

    Low pay, long long hours, no work/life balance, to corporate now and way too much red tape. It's the car business - that's it folks. Stop trying to make it so complicated. Dealer level doesn't always follow AutoNation policy (e.g. Customer 1st philosophy - gets left at the training and mgmt at the dealer rarely follow it.) Antiquated computer and software systems and processes. Training needs to be streamlined and simplified. One CAN be too big to fail....

    Advice to Management

    The car business today is not what it used to be. Mgmt at the dealer level needs to understand that and get with the times. Simply and streamline the training.

    I have been working at AutoNation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They make the office look nice and modern and keep you well stocked with coffee and drinks. Many of the people on the team are from other places so there is a good amount of people wanting to do things after work.

    Cons

    The management does not know how to manage. They play favorites with people and one manager openly tells people who her favorite is that week. They don't listen to issues that need to be addressed but still act like they want your opinions. Be careful though, they say they want the truth but if you give it to them straight they will punish you.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the wolf in Sheep's clothing... Bad, inconsistent management doesn't help build good teams no matter how much you talk. Be open and communicate with the team, don't be so shady.

    Pros

    Plethora of hours to gain, professional work environment, Excellent sales manager team(s). Roseville automall location is awesome! Travel time included. Great pay. This company believes in hiring and rising from within.

    Cons

    Not enough trees for shade when selling cars in the heat of summer. Other than that no further complaints

    Advice to Management

    Keeping benching deals, and keeping the atmosphere positive and strong. Gen Y are positive and management keeps the job very interesting already.

    I worked at AutoNation full-time

    Pros

    Autonation is a company that you can start out on the ground floor and learn many skills and trades that make you a more valuable asset to any company.

    Cons

    Health insurance puts a big bite in your paycheck. Wish it was more flexible or they had gone with a different provider.

    Advice to Management

    Never forget where you came from, staying humble and still doing the things that helped you become a valuable asset to the company, that helped you grow & move up.
