    I have been working at AutoNation

    Pros

    I love the sales process they have for customers to buy a new or pre-owned vehicles,is very different than a traditional dealership or internet department. I was impress by the relax environment and willingness to help you succeed at your job.The pay structure is decent and always have incentives going to motivate you.They make you feel welcome to your new job and sincerely make feel at home. And they always have some potluck at work or get together outside the job site.

    Cons

    The training is very long., 3 weeks and can not go on the floor live until you complete the training.
    You also have to work every other weekend.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the training shorter.
