Pros

Great company to advance with, many new store openings, paid vacations, sick days, holidays, stock options, 401k, fun environment, company pays health insurance for mechanics and inventory employees, paid trips to Vegas for top sales people, demo cars for managers, company stands behind its products, fun store activities such as, summer bbq's holiday parties and community charity events.

Cons

Long hours, Insurance could be better, low appraisal offers sometimes make it hard to purchase or sell vehicles, non paid morning sales meetings.

    Pros

    Great People to Work With

    Cons

    Long Hours, Low Pay, quick burn out and little retention rate. Corporate would rather train a new person than ever pay great members already on team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please raise commissions so it is possible to earn a respectable living. And please stop hiring people right in our face every week, we get it, you think we are easily replaceable.
