Former Employee - Customer Care Representative in Victor, NY
Former Employee - Customer Care Representative in Victor, NY

I worked at Auction Direct full-time (more than an year)

Pros

hands on training, good team environment in that specific department, decent people to work with. Manager was in tune, calm and not micro-manager and over all a good leader. Earning potential can be good

Cons

hours were crappy. Nights and weekends were mandatory, general manager would humiliate people to make a point. Although that wasn't my department, the hostility and morale in the dealership was depressing. No boundaries with regard to inappropriate conversations and jokes from the sales and service guys. The departments are run very differently, makes it hard to feel comfortable or even want to be "promoted". You don't know what to expect next. Not a long term job for the career minded.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper managment needs to be more involved with day to day operations. Be a little more selective on who you hire on your sales team and managers. I saw some of the sleeziest people be highly recognized for a job well done and protected. Downer for those who follow rules and have good ethics.

    Pros

    Good sales people are crucial, especially in Buffalo; you must fix your pay plan.

    Pros

    Sr. Sales Mgmt. Is to die for,....Gen. Mgr.'s door ALWAYS OPEN,...Family atmosphere for the most part. Be responsible, do very well,...be irresponsible, be gone! Some extremely talented, gifted, generous in advice and experience to the non-initiated. Gracious disciplinary tactics. Constant sales training, and Sincere Encouragement to be the very best one can possibility be in totality.

    Cons

    Very long hours, but a very understanding Sr. Mgmt. Team with compassion and empathy for honest, hard-working associates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eyeball to eyeball hiring from reliable, verifiable references. No more on-line testing for good sales candidates.
