I have been working at DriveTime Automotive Group

Pros

1) Very open to discussion on employee needs for hours, etc.
2) Good environment/company culture
3) Competitive pay
4) Business transparency

Cons

1) Constantly changing processes are sometimes difficult to keep up with
2) Formal training is lacking in some ways, learn most skills on the job

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Company is great to work for, although keeping up with some of the structure and policy changes is difficult. When leadership changes, positions are switched, or people move without notification, it makes contacting the right people with questions and concerns a little more complicated.

    I worked at DriveTime Automotive Group

    Pros

    you get a paycheck plus commissions

    co-workers are very nice

    Cons

    Long hours-(worked 18 hours on a Saturday trying to close a deal)

    They are not realistic about the amount of cars you can sell in a given month.

    You deal with people who cant get a car anywhere else, but want the world from you at DT

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay a decent salary and give realistic comissions for the work.

    I worked at DriveTime Automotive Group

    Pros

    Great work environment, adequate benefit package and time off (though I believe the medical plan is being dropped for an HSA option), reasonable pay compared to peers (which means still underpaid given today's prices), and DT keeps up with technology quite well.

    Cons

    Ran by an old boys club you don't dare cross if you hope to go anywhere. Another major problem at DT is the lack of performance management. A major consideration before joining is the fact that DT is privately owned and company objectives can change overnight, sometimes costing numerous jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage your staff in performance discussions rather than listening to rumors; surprises in this area are unacceptable. When you preach open communication, lead by example.
