Pros

You get to drive nice cars, dress nice, always meet new people & sell cars. Learn a good amount about the cars you sell.

Cons

Pay system is horrible. They don't pay you what you deserve. Benefits are a joke. The Chevy dealer in Valencia always gave away all the profit in a car just to make a deal so we as salesman wouldn't make enough to hardly survive.

Advice to Management

Pull your heads out! Create a pay system that actually benefits your employees.

    Pros

    Very good training. Large company with room for rapid advancement.

    Cons

    Salaries/commissions below industry standards. Expected to work very long hours including nights, weekends & all holidays but xmas & thanksgiving.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees a little well-earned time off and stop burning your employees out.

    Pros

    Decent compensation. Can get time off when needed. Coworkers are nice.

    Cons

    When a new "action plan" is created it last for a week or so and then it is gone. Managers act like they are there to help you, but not really. The training process that is so organized is not there. If you have never sold cars before you could be in trouble here. Also I at times find it hard to be in the grey area that they are always pushing us to.
