I worked at Courtesy Chevrolet full-time for less than a year
Pros – I was told they are the best at treating their employees in an industry that treats their employees badly. Upper management has regular meetings. Bothers whom manage on a daily basis seem like nice people, but the auto dealership culture has been taught to them from an early age.
Cons – Long hours (go home as long as you sell enough, little pay unless you are a superstar. Superstars have to drink the Kool-Aid and comfortable with not telling the truth as directed by the floor manager.
Advice to Senior Management – I'm not sure the industry can change. The auto manufacturers cheat the dealers by making incentives for dealers to take advantage hard to track and redeem money owed to them. This attitude trickles down to sales people, and in turn to the customer. But without all the tomfoolery will you sell cars, a be-back will never be back to buy the car from you. Another dealership will use the same tricker or worst and get the sale.

I have been working at Courtesy Chevrolet
Pros – fun atmosphere, good people, nice comp plan
Cons – very difficult to sell vehicles, too many salespeople, limited opportunities. There is very little or no training for this particular job. You need to know alot about the sales environment to survive here. The clientel is mostly spanish speaking so it is difficult to sell if you do not speak fluent spanish. Also, management does not particularly like to help newer employees get started. They use high pressure techniques that often times lead customers away from purchasing. This is unfortunate, because many customers enjoy the atmosphere and selection.
Advice to Senior Management – free access to Roseta Stone, think of some sort of interesting marketing campaign that will attract a different group of people to the dealership, try to expand into other markets, other types of vehicle, offer employees training in finance programs (if they do not want to be involved in sales alone)
