No cost of living adjustment for region

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsTraining program for someone coming in with no car sales experience is a Pro.

ConsDoesn't matter what part of the country you work in, you get paid the same per car sold. So, if you lived in the South and moved to the North, you will not receive an adjustment for living in a higher cost of living area. LGM's do not take your management experience into consideration if you want to advance your career. I have seen people get promoted to Sales Managers because they sold over 800 cars even without a prior management background. This doesn't always make good leaders.

Advice to Senior ManagementHQ should take the Millions that the company makes and pay cost of living increases per cars sold for your employees instead of losing good people who struggle to earn a living. Corporate greed at it's best!!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
