    Love what I do!

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Bob Rohrman Auto

    Pros

    Satisfaction of seeing people that are truly grateful when they get in a car they love.. the customers are awesome. Money is good and I love a competitive environment. To me it feels like a sport not a job. Bob demands a lot but I gaurentee he demands more out of himself. I GET TO DETERMINE MY WORTH NOT AN HOURLY RATE

    Cons

    Explaining to family about inconsistent hours. Why it's not a clock in clock out type job "thank god"!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hang in there! Learn all you can, stay humble, and remember every position boils down to one thing. "YOURE A SALESMAN" no more no less

    I worked at Bob Rohrman Auto full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They hold company functions all year round which is rare for most companies and do recognize top performers.

    Cons

    If your terminated, you wont see your last paychecks. Still Waiting (or a Written explaination) for mine after 6 weeks. Also another person was terminated at the same time and is waiting for their last paycheck. Was suppose to get benefits after 90 days. It was 6 months. Not allowed the manpower and time or information to do your job 100%. And one hell of a revolving door. As one review said "Every day you go in, your not sure you'll have a job at the end". Makes for a tense environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better training, more support, more information for the "Go To". Need to get rid of all the B.S. "POLITICS". Hire people that will not blow smoke up your behind and tell you the truth. Hire people that have people skills and don't manage by the 1980's and 1990's way of managing. When someone asks for help, help them and don't ignore their call for help. Their success depends on proper support. Not half-But mis-management

    Pros

    Six figure potential, Potential to move up.

    Cons

    You work very long hours normally past closing time and most holidays. Extreme lack of organization, zero training and huge turnover. Very high pressure and upper management puts you in situations that questions morals. Bob Rohrman phlysophy is every body is replaceable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Minimum benefits offered, maximum commitment demanded

    Cons

    Showing up everyday and dealing with everyone

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Me first environment, Owner is seldom there and doesn't take the time to get to know anyone. Upper management usually gone unless Owners scheduled to be there. Had to bust up a poker game in the sales office to help me sell a car. Very low morale on sales floor. If you take care of some employees that actually care you wont have so many that dont.

    Pros

    If you are good at sales, you have potential to make decent money. It is slow in the winter seasons, but if you can weather the storm, it is good.

    Cons

    Slow in Winter time. If your not aggressive, your not agrressive and eager, you will not enjoy work. Because, in the end it is about putting food on the table and enjoying your workplace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management could do a better job of training new sales associates. At the end of the day, if you don't train them properly or at all, you lose money all the way around!

    Pros

    There are many good, hard-working, and knowledgable employees. Always challenging, never dull.

    Cons

    Ther is a high turn over of employees. Issues with some senior management. Tense work environment. Many managers are over-worked. A balance between work and home is difficult for many managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People are your most important resource, treat them with respect. Seek input from integral resources. More positive and constructive feedback. Try some team-building incentives.
