How much of a beating can you take?

Sales (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX

ProsStarpower is a highprofile dealer and you can make a very good income if you can deal with the micro management and used car sales atmosphere. Kiss up enough and you will get a few scraps thrown your way and a few easy sales from the athletes and freinds of the family who always think they are going to get a better deal...otherwise you might starve on the floor. Aside from management the people there are great and enjoyable to work with.

You do get to enjoy hearing about how management enjoys spending time with their family and enjoying their new multi million dollar homes while you get to think about how to avoid foreclosure and try to remember what your family looks like since you havent seen them in weeks.

ConsThey will tell you how much they are helping you by cutting commisions by 50%. Don't belive a word they say about hours or pay unless you get it in writing, even then it might not do you much good. Daily ego beatings are par for the course, avoid them and enjoy watching other employees walk around in fear of "01". Get on the bad side of the family and life is a living hell.

Hours are not too bad, they only want you to work half a day. You work for 12 hours seven days a week except Thanksgiving and Christmas, what you do with the other 12 hours is up to you

Advice to Senior ManagementThere is no point in giving advice or feedback unless you like being told how wrong you are. The only good ideas are thought of by the family.
