Sonic Automotive is moving in the wrong direction

Salesperson (Current Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

Prossome awesome co-workers.. A couple managers even!

ConsSales managers are overworked and underpaid as are the sales people. No Appreciation. Cheap GM that has slashed the payplan. Every car is a $200 mini with weak bonus'. Sell ten cars and you will make $2k before taxes/insurance. Sonic is implementing "true pricing" where every car is non-negotiable, meaning commission will stay around $200 for every car...decent place to learn the business and move on. Not the place for a seasoned pro.

Advice to Senior ManagementSome great managers, but are just sonic puppets that have zero power to make changes

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
