    Pros

    He dosen't know what is going on, you can curise for a few year while the Sr. leadership find out and fire him.

    Cons

    He can not communicate very well, one on one and in a group or in presentations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should have asked the employee about him before taking the current CIO recommendation.

    Pros

    It can feel very rewarding to get someone in a car. Whether it's a young person getting their own car for the first time, or someone with challenging credit. You CAN make some decent money, but it's very unpredictable due to commission only pay. The company does try to give you a diverse work schedule (it's retail after all) by giving you a 3 day weekend off every 6 weeks. But your schedule changes constantly. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Management are full of themselves. They have many methods in place to help "develop" you...code for micro-manage. They definitely have favorites and play to that. Work/life balance is somewhat up to you. If you choose to answer your phone on your day off and potentially go in to close a sale...that's up to you. Or you can split it. But it's a constant mental struggle to take your days off or feel like you're losing money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop talking down to the sales staff as if they have no skill. Why did you hire them? Quit playing favorites.
