    Autonation SSC. Stable Job. Not a Resume builder.

    Pros

    - Plenty of hours if you need them
    - Friendly employees for the most part
    - Generally understanding management (though not all, as with many places)

    Cons

    - Tedious work. Lots of doing the same thing every month.
    - Poor training, many people don't know how to do their jobs correctly. Most of those who do things correctly still have no understanding of their job, they've just memorized the procedure (so they respond poorly to new situations).
    - Poor department interaction. You have to know who to go to (may be leads in one department, a supervisor in another, or a grunt in yet another), or you get silence in return.
    - Technology from the stone age (this could be seen as a positive if you're just looking to get a job, low tech keeps way more on staff than needed)
    - Auto Industry, a super-heavy dinosaur waiting to collapse from its weight and old age

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Get more qualified personnel. You'd be surprised how few people you need to replace your seemingly overburdened large staff. (Or maybe you wouldn't)
    - Improve your tech. So much of what is done at the SSC could be done quicker and more effectively with cheap and readily available software.

    Dissapointing! I expected so much more from the #1 automotive retailer in the country.

    Former Employee - Confidential - Corporate Level in Fort Lauderdale, FL
    Former Employee - Confidential - Corporate Level in Fort Lauderdale, FL

    I worked at AutoNation

    Pros

    Non-rigid work schedule (ex: arrive around 8:30 and leave around 5:30). 12 days off from the beginning. Nice break-room. Multicultural corporate environment.

    Cons

    Completely disorganized and no accountibility. Decisions seem to be made only at the very top level of management, otherwise subordinates do not respond to new implementations. The company is run like individual franchises instead of as a corporation. The DMS software used is lousy.
    Employees have to wait 6 months to be eligible for health ins. benefits. The company is not focused on training and developing its employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In addition to hiring people with education, like myself, ensure that employees either have experience at the store level or incorporate training to reduce detachment. Hire the right people, pay them well, and foster their development (train). Make the appropriate changes top to bottom.
