    Pros

    Leader in automotive sales and its processes via electronic & AD lead generation plus the typical new sales hire immediate warm leads IE family and friends.
    They have a good contact management software.

    Cons

    At the store level most of the stores management cannot see the forest through trees... meaning that they are only concerned with what corporate flavor desire of the month is.
    Store mangers are on the hamster wheel and must dance the six-sigma dance every moment without regard for the employees or customers, all the while putting on a happy face and taking everyone’s money to show corporate/investors/wall street the desired margins mostly from the backs of the store employees.

    Advice to Management

    You no longer have polished sales professionals for the most part with some exceptions, the original philosophy was "The Sales Person is King" "Nothing happens until the sales person sells a vehicle" ... no service...no parts...no accounting ... = unhappy investors/ traders/hedge funds folks who are watching carefully how you are pushing the decimal points forward.


  2. Outstanding company to work for. Lots of training tools to help you be your best.
