Current Employee - Sales Associate in Round Rock, TX

I have been working at Penske Automotive Group full-time for less than a year

Pros

Penske Austomotive is owned by Roger Penske who takes pride in every business opportunity he aquires. The benefits are great and the HR department is always thorough and helpful. Mr. Penske hires the best General Managers and the staff is always friendly. The atmosphere is professional yet there is no micro-management. I would recommend Penske to any who are applying. Our VP of operations stops and speaks to employees in passing, always waves and always has a smile as you can tell he enjoys his job. I would love to stay within the Penske Corporation as far as employment goes.

Cons

Some seasons are slower than others in the car business, but you have to take the good with the bad! The god seasons outweigh the bad!!!!!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you are doing. They go above and beyond to make sure employees are happy. There is always an open door policy and the GM always has time for whoever should come knocking!

    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....
