Pros

An engaging interview process and a few reasonable managers willing to interpret policies ju'diciously.

Cons

Training is virtually nonexistent company wide. An atmosphere of impatience is the norm at the Phoenix IC. One of the senior managers there is reputed to be easily frustrated and despite his reputation continues to be promoted. An automated buzzer alerts everyone to the start time signifying when employees are to punch in at: break, lunch and the end of the day adding to the already negative atmosphere absolute drudgery. Safety policies are more often than not reactive which seeminly counter the principles of the lean manufacturing model claimed. Employee evaluations and feedback are sporadic at best. Given all these irritants: dangerous chemical exposure with minimal safety precautions, a negative atmosphere, the confusing complexity of the HR website; ADP, the myriad of user names and passwords to navigate through the company, virtually no protection from the elements especially a the Phoenix IC, a dog eat dog company culture, and nearly minimum wage for the Detail department or anyone to humble to blow their own horn when health issues psychological or physical inevitably result calling off more than 5 times in a 6 month periord is cause for termination. The attendance policy is simply abusive.

Advice to Management

Address these issues ideally because it's just the right thing to do but in as much as it's obvious the driviving ideology is greed then know that your reputation for abusive labor practices can and will effect your bottom line because despite your consumers' restricted purchasing options and expected mechanical ignorance anyone can understand and related to egregious labor abuse and elect to patronize another company with better labor pratices.

    Pros

    Small sales staff and shared commisions on sales makes for a great team environment and fairly consistent commisons based on meeting budget and cars you have personally sold.

    Cons

    The company is expanding and their culture is of change but the reality of upward mobility and the hours you are told you work are not consistent with the story they share with you durring the on-boarding process. Do expect to put more hours and time into the company than you may feel is worth your hourly break down. Lunch is very difficult to squeeze in if at all due to the nature of the business and if you do want to grow with the company expect to relocate, this to is all part of their cultire. High turnover environment.

    Advice to Management

    Properly lay out expextations, training and realistic time-lines for growth within the organization.
