    Pros

    Good benefits, decent pay, decent training program.

    Cons

    Upper management resorts to bullying of Store managers to get what they want, they make you work overtime and expect you to not be on the clock, force you to work understaffed and never value your team's hard work. Overall upper management lacks talent and leadership.

    Advice to Management

    VP's: Get a job in the used car sales industry, you would be a good fit. DM's: Have faith in your GM's

    Pros

    The general manager is very understanding and is willing to work with us. She even tries to get us as many hours as she can.
