Good Learning Experience, Lots of Hours!!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at DriveTime Automotive Group full-time

ProsGood job fresh out of college. Good pay for first year without prior experience. You will become good at sales with this job. Opportunity to move up but only if you are willing to relocate. Off during holidays.

ConsReal long hours. During Tax Time (January-May) expect to work 60hrs/week. All other months work about 50+ hours depending on how staffed the store is. You have the ability to move up but only if you relocate. And when you get your first promotion to Senior Sales Advisor you get the same pay if not less then you would as a Sales Advisor. So you get promoted to make less which doesn't make sense. You have to get promoted to Sales Manager before you make good money (about 65k-80k). In the mean time, work your butt off for 60+hrs/week and wait possibly a few years before something opens up or relocate.

Advice to Senior ManagementLess Hours!!! Make Sales Advisors want to get promoted to Senior Sales Advisor by offering better incentives instead of only offering the hope that you may one day become a Sales Manager (and once you do make it to SM the hours only get worse).
