I worked at David McDavid Auto GroupPros
1) Extremely laid back. This dealership is very relaxed and can lead to a fun working environment sometimes.
2) Overall Benefits, 401K, Golds GYM membership discount, sprint discount, and general insurances.Cons
1) Run down facility. Some days there will be bats flying though the showroom. There is wallpaper falling off the walls, carpet pealing up, the pre-owned building isn't open and hasn't been opened since I started 2 years ago. The building is just falling apart at the seams and don't believe it if they tell you they are getting a new building because that's what they originally told me 2 years ago and there has been no progress ever since.
2) Corrupt Management. The managers have no sense of respect and are just flat out selfish. They don't care about their customers and they have no problem ripping a customer off with a car that is in need of repairs. They will do what ever they can to make you work more and pay you less.
3) The Work Environment. This all directly relates to managements lack skills. The majority of the employees dislike one or more of the managers and dislike working for the company. If it wasn't for the money there is no way they would stayAdvice to ManagementAdvice
1) It's very difficult to work on cars and sell cars if the building is falling apart left and right. I would invest in getting a new building or remodeling the one you have ASAP.
2) Find a way to make sure cars that are being sold honestly and that the customers are looked out for it is a service business. If that means getting rid of the problem people so be it.
3) Have meeting with all of your employees. Service have a monthly meeting and sales have a monthly meeting. Go over issues that have happened over the past month, address stuff that needs to be repaired, let the employees know how they are performing overall as a team, let the employees know that you are there to help not to boss them around.
4) I would like to see the management offer to get their hands dirty some times instead of being reactive being proactive
