Current Employee - Sales Manager in Phoenix, AZ

I have been working at DriveTime Automotive Group full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Loved my job and that I was helping people with bad credit to purchase reliable transportation. Was able to earn a good living.

Cons

Company does not value their employees. Started hiring naive kids out of college and started managing out the aging staff. Micro manage and spend too much time looking for what you are doing wrong. Worked way more hours than they say you will with no extra pay.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be honest with people in the interview process. Look at your market managers with the same critical eye as they judge their staff.

    I worked at DriveTime Automotive Group full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good salary for a car sales jobs. No work on Sundays. Ability to interact with customers. A chance to meet a lot of people.

    Cons

    Benefits are too expensive and management is incompetent. You are forced to sell a predatory loan to customers who don't know the right questions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Gain some insight on working with different kinds of people and cultures. Don't blame every inconsistency of "the spirit of change".

    Pros

    Great training and development of staff. They offer a needed service in the marketplace, and are a quality operation, top to bottom.

    Cons

    If you are located in California, there are very few Drivetime dealerships in this state. There is much more opportunity in the heartland or the Southern States.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up your "promote from within" concept!
