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

Pros

Historically was a great place. Very strong benefits if grandfathered in. Good comp if in the right areas and you can sacrifice all time.

Cons

Sweeping salary reductions to increase corporate bottom line. Less family culture than that preached by Sr. and Exec. Management. Terrible work/life balance if you have or want a family. Sales consultants treated as quick expendable numbers. Constant in-your-face with execs big earnings and car collections while many struggle to make ends meet. Execs have great holidays, not others. Downhill since shifting CEO assignment to the once fired banking exec.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Embrace the once positive culture.

    Pros

    Constantly changing day to day.....The weather, the variable clientele, timing and market conditions keep things moving.....Upbeat place to work, a good team of folks with positive mental attitudes. Not your average work place environment. If you like automobiles it is a lot to see, touch and feel.

    Cons

    Hours can be long at times, saturdays are mandatory work day but there is plenty of time off when you want it. The biggest two stressers are being 100 % commissions so when it is slow it can be a lean month. The other negative is learning how to handle rejection and negative clients that don't care about you or your time....at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Things are a changing due to the customer becoming more educated and expects more openness. Market Based pricing is here and the old guard methods of playing games with the "real " price are disappearing. As we all get on the same page customers and employers the sales should increase along with the salaries. Retaining excellent employees should be a priority in order to meet the company goal of doubling in the next 10 years.

    Pros

    In the Business Development Center, the opportunity to make a great living is possible with hard work and determination. It's enjoyable to talk to customers & help them set appointments to get assistance. Excellent training!

    Cons

    Depending on which franchised Dealership you're in, the management can lack storewide communication leaving "underlings" feeling highly unappreciated; our ideas are not valued for continuous process improvement, at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    ALL store managers should communicate; from the greatest to the least so everyone is on the same page and never should anyone be forced to tell "scripted" lies to potential customers just to get them in the door. It's contrary to R.H. Core Values.
