Current Employee - Do IT All in Newark, NJ

I have been working at Penske Automotive Group full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Good Benefits, Co-workers are fun and make coming into work worth it.

Cons

No Work-Life Balance, Very long hours, and no management accessment and/or training.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Roger Penske and his Corporate team is absolutely clueless as to what really goes on in these dealerships, he trust that management (GM's) are doing their best to mentor staff and encourage internal growth but all management want to do is recruit unqualified applicants and expect the existing employees to train. We are the employees who are working our asses off, hard-working, dedicated, come to work even during the worst weather conditions, loyal and most of all, COMMITTED TO WHAT WE DO and yet, we still get no recognition. Some will even attest to GM's trying to sabotage some employee's job by making their lives so unhappy, they quit.... Dig deeper Roger Penske....

    Pros

    Ability to make good money, but hours are long, majority of management is poor as well as majority of employees tend to be lazy.

    Cons

    Executive V.P. micro-manages region and doesn't allow for competent management but ones that say "yes" and don't contradict him. No leadership ability from managers at all - they're just watching-out for themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advise for Roger Penske: dig deep into this region and talk to the actual employees that are working hard for you and to the ones that are truly generating the dollars and building customer loyalty. Clean house with your current management and get "doers not talkers."

    I worked at Penske Automotive Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great group of people that appear to care about all employees.

    Cons

    There is no balance of work and life. You end up living there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More balance in the work hours should be looked at. You want serious, family oriented people with no issues but you negate their lives outside the dealership. How can you stay married working 65+ hours a week?
