    I have been working at Gillman Honda full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There was nothing great about working at this job in my opinion.

    Cons

    They hire people for a certain position, but give them more than 3 jobs to do at once. Get the job if you want to be running around every second and just going to the restroom you feel like you need to rush back to your desk. The place is extremely unorganized. Customers have to walk back and forth to buy parts. They go to the parts department to purchase a part, then they have to walk to the cashiers booth to pay for the part. Let alone the parts cashier doesn't even exist. The service cashier has to take the payments, even though they were hired for the SERVICE cashier position. When the service advisors call their customers to inform them that their cars are finished, they don't even bother saying "Your car is ready sir/ma'am, come to my desk." I have customers coming to the cashier's booth wanting to pay for their car and when I tell them that the service advisors would have all of their paperwork they get upset. Management is shady here. After working for 1 year some employees aren't even assured a raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being cheap to your employees. If you give them so much work , atleast give them a raise. Tell your service advisors to be more detailed when they call their customers to come in. Tell them where they should come to pay. Don't trick people into working for a certain position and then give them another position on top of that. If you guys say you were helping a department out atleast get them to hire someone for that position if they had to let that person go. Instead of making these poor girls work 3 different jobs at once for change money. If you're hiring for a porter, put on the application "hiring for porter" not a greeter.

    I worked at Gillman Honda

    Pros

    The other sales people who work there are for the most part nice people

    Cons

    They dont teach you how to do anything but listen to directions. They want you to just be a sales minion for the rest of your life. The distribution of sales leads is extremely unfair. The accounting department always 'forgets' to give you all of your money in your paycheck which causes alot of confusion. They have no respect for the sales people because they will hire everyone who applies - this helps overall sales but hurts each employees chances of hitting their bonuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like people, not like disposable assets. STOP HIRING especially when it is slow. 40+ sales people in a 250-300 car per month dealership is too many!

    I worked at Gillman Honda

    Pros

    Suprisingly,a very laid back staff when it comes to punctuality.

    Cons

    Bad work environment.

    Management doesn't help their sales people,or train them.

    Managers only help their 'favorites'.

    Pay structure is set-up for the sales people to fail,hence the reason they have so much turnover.

    A brief example : They "Guarantee" a monthly draw of $1500 for 60 days. However after 60 days,they somehow come up with stories on how you OWE them money,and you can actually take home a check for $0 dollars. No,that's not a typo. $0 Dollars.

    Long hours, Lousy pay despite being top producer.

    No benefits whatsoever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help your sales people,train them properly,and work like the $100,000 + salary you earn.

    Help your sales people make money(afterall,thats the reason why they're there.)

    Motivate your sales people with incentives,spiffs.

    Be a team leader,and support your sales staff.

    Treat your sales people like human beings. It's nice to acknowledge them,instead of just socializing with the other managers,and pretending the sales people don't exist.
