I have been working at Hendrick Automotive Group full-time for 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.

    I have been working at Hendrick Automotive Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    anyone can get hired there is a constant turnover

    Cons

    The sales reps get the bottom of the barrel for pay. It is all commissions, you are not appreciated for your time commitment, the pay is very poor in todays standards. The upper mgmt team at each dealership makes tons of money while everyone else does the work. Only the "buddies" of the GM get promoted and it's all about screwing the public...nobody gets a deal except the dealership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask yourselves, if the public really new how you operated the business, do you think they would buy cars from you and line your pockets or would they go somewhere else ?

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

    Pros

    The ability to make good compensation, especially if you can work up the corporate ladder. Excellent benefits which get better with tenure.

    Cons

    Terrible work and life balance, typically a six-day/week gig including weekends. Not an ideal situation if you value time with your kids and wife.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You request employees to rank the company high in 'Best Places to Work' survey, but you don't make strides to make them feel as though they are of value.
