    Great place to make some money.

    Sales (Former Employee) Manhattan, KS

    ProsGreat opportunity to make a better than average paycheck. The General Manager in Manhattan is an outstanding individual, the highest caliber dealership manager you will find anywhere. Manhattan is a great 'small' town to live and work in.

    ConsArrogant and unintelligent middle-management. Working 60+ hours per week, not to mention being expected to work your days off. (if you don't and are lagging behind, you are likely to be fired). In order to effectively coach sales people, the sales managers should probably have proven their sales experience themselves. As opposed to managers who historically couldn't sell cars to begin with.

    Little training. Management constantly berates employees regardless of production. They will find any way to not pay you

    Sales (Current Employee)

    ProsSometimes decent money. Established name in region

    ConsTons of hours with little pay except in summer months. Management constantly talks down to salespeople. The company offers no tools to help you develop a book of business. Sales opportunities are hit and miss because of lax marketing focus. Management will promise advancement opportunities while never following through.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees with respect since they are how you get a paycheck. Don't offer advancement opportunities to employees with no intention of following through.

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

    It *is* a car dealership

    Shop (Former Employee)

    ProsI needed a job, and they were to provide specific training and a distinct path for advancement, which they did not follow through with. And yes, that is a positive comment.

    ConsOnce I was hired, they failed to follow through with their pre-hire promises. While working there, I witnessed stereotypical abuses associated with an auto repair shop and sales tactics, including but not limited to making unnecessary repairs, inadequate diagnostics resulting in necessitating further repairs, uncalled for upsale of services, etc.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop ripping off customers. Treat employees better.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not a place that cares about their employees.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Manhattan, KS

    ProsLarge customer base.
    Non-management co-workers are mostly good people, and are good to work with.

    ConsYou will work long, hard hours for not a lot of money.
    Management and owners do not care about employees, only money.
    You are expendable, and you're treated that way.
    Turnover rate is high, and you will see many new faces every week.
    Unorganized in most branches of the company.
    Employee morale is dismal, and most people will find it hard to make a career with the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCare about the people who make you money. They have families and lives outside of work. If as much energy is put into taking care of your employees and their families, as sponsoring every activity and event in the area, the workplace would be a more positive place, and business would reflect that.

    Great place to work for lower than average pay.

    Finance Manager (Former Employee) Manhattan, KS

    ProsThey are a large group in a great location. They have excellent sales support, a business development, and a proven business model

    ConsYou can get lost in the croud and end up being just another underpaid manager

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay up. Hand out more slices of the pie. Other dealers pay far more for mid management

    Not a good place

    Nissan Salesperson (Current Employee)

    ProsIf you are a good sales person you can make alot of money. very few people in the organization reach the goal of what they desire.

    Consgm is very quick to fire you if you are not making him the amount of money desired. he will not personally fire you, but will designate to another manager. if you happen to be a disabled veteran, do not work there, the gm will fire you for that reason.

    Advice to Senior Managementruss briggs needs a new gm who is not so money hungry to give newer sales people the time to get the clientel desired by the organization. management at the nissan store is ridiculous. the manager can not lead his team efficiently. there should be an actual training program rather than the two people that do what they call training.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
