    Do not let senior management tell employees they can be replaced at any time.

    I worked at Berglund Automotive Group full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Reputable product brand, convenient location.

    Cons

    Full-time requires 50 hours, bad reputation, unhappy existing clientele base, expensive coverage benefits, poor communication, little to no correspondence between departments, unethical business practices, dishonest business practices, scarce resources, unclear pay plan, no notification of commissions-earned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    General training program needed.

  3.  

    The absolute worst micromanagement I have experienced or imagined!

    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - General Manager in Roanoke, VA

    I worked at Berglund Automotive Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    If your not in top management or office worker, things are somewhat better. Wages are as little as they can get away with!

    Cons

    In some of the dealerships the salespeople get no paid vacations and you work every holiday except Thanksgiving and Christmas! They take advantage of being in a recession, meaning treating you as bad as they can legally do so because if you quit there's still a lot of people willing to try.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The first 60 days is bearable then the screws start tightening. Say goodby to your family because your expected to work bell to bell without time off!

  5.  

    Very family oriented company with potential for personal and financial growth

    I have been working at Berglund Automotive Group

    Pros

    Family atmosphere, potential to make good money

    Cons

    No 401K contributions last year, work long hours for possible very low income

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make your employees feel they are doing a good job, more praise and less contempt. Give management bonuses the same as you give sales. Continue to put the customer first. When you make a decision stick to it.
