Current Employee - Service in Plymouth, MI
Current Employee - Service in Plymouth, MI

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

Pros

It's hard to find many pros, three weeks vacation and three sick days is nice, some really good people have worked here, but they have pushed them out.

Cons

Can't run a dealer from out of state. Need to listen to local employees. Customer service is sacrificed due to there polices. If you are not in the "inner circle" it will be difficult. Inability to understand local markets and adapt to them. Walmart doesn't sell winter coats in Key West and bikinis at the North Pole.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you are that unhappy with Michigan, "SELL US" so the rest of us can be saved!

Doesn't Recommend

Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    They will hire anyone who can pass a drug and background check.

    Cons

    They really don't care about the regular employee, it's ALL about the money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to be human and think past your paycheck, the profits and the shareholders. We are real people, wanting to make a living and are willing to give our all. The turnover is out of control and now there's a 'No re-hire policy'. Is that supposed to keep unhappy employees too afraid to leave?
