I have been working at AutoNation

Pros

The company is an industry leader and very forward thinking. They are always looking at the new technologies available and how they can be used to improve processes.

Cons

There is limited potential for advancement and therefore they are losing some very knowledgeable employees to competitors and other industries.

    Pros

    Skilled techs seem to be paid at the highest hourly rate in the area, at least for now. If you do a good job with few comebacks you are generally left alone.

    Cons

    Employees who lie, cheat and steal are the first to be promoted. Upper management cares only about profit and slashing wages....Autonation preaches about ethics but has none whatsoever. Work until you die, 8 days a week if they could do it to you!! They'd rather spend money on lawyers than doing whats right to their employees or customers!! Greed, and profit are the only thing that drives this business. Autonation-Destroying the industry one day at a time. Can't work anywhere else becuase they make back-door deals with other local dealerships not to hire their employees.Well, you have a job don't you? That's what you'll hear when you mention dirty words to your management team when you ask about taboo topics such as a cost of living raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your employees- They are #1 !! In turn, they will take care of your customers, and the business will thrive. Cut out the fat and pay the money to the people in your company who really work. Multiple layers of regional, market, etc presidents, VP,s...You'd get more for your money paying out on the dealership worker level...Yearly new "pay plans" aka, pay CUTS, 7 day a week, 12 hour days, your employees are burnt out.The customers can see this, and feel it. There is more to life than work and profit. Stop destroying families with excessive work hours!!

    Pros

    The team truly cares about the product. Teamwork is excellent, the work isn't difficult, as long as the work gets done, people leave you alone.

    Cons

    Managers have very little respect for the people on the front lines and the job they do. It is very difficult to keep associates motivated when you are being treated poorly on a day to day basis. Most people are looking for work outside the organization despite the fact that they genuinely like most aspects of their job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should seriously consider the effectiveness of management. Most people don't do their best in response to fear. Also, the benefits and pay are well below par...especially for a company this large.
