I worked at AutoNation

Pros

Great company paid training that would truly open anyones eyes about the car business. Compensation would be great depending on how much time you are willing to invest.

Cons

Although the training that came from corporate was very useful and told you how to treat and talk to a customer and what action to take and not take were very informative and did work if done correctly. All of that went out the window once you got back to the dealeriship you worked at. The old timers who were now managers and or general managers of the dealership would tell you to do it their way which only work back in the 60's and 70's.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior management should attend the same training as the sales associates attend that comes down from corporate. That way they can understand better what it is that the associates are being told so that they can show the associates with their experience how put that train to use in a practical way.

    I have been working at AutoNation

    Pros

    There is a clearly defined procedure that takes the element of surprise out of the equation.

    Cons

    The beauracracy for each elements of the business is extremely extensive...be aware.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Micromanagement is a huge negative and teamwork should be emphasized in order to create a cohesive working environment... understanding your individual sales staff and their unique abilities/experience will help tailor your managerial style for each individual to the benefit of the dealership (i.e. more sales).
