    Pros

    Great group of core employees!

    Cons

    Upper managers not caring about employees is causing the work place to become not so good anymore. Where the corporation was a great place to be and work Mr. Hendrick is a great person.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people

    Pros

    very friendly sales team. Always got a courteous answer for any questions I had. Very good training program, and continued training

    Cons

    Long hours, sometimes as late as 11pm. No up system, so sales associates were always trying to beat out others for customers.

    Advice to Management

    Develop an "Up System" that is fair to all. This way each person has an opportunity to talk to potential customers.

    Pros

    Very good compensation package and pay plan.

    Cons

    Daily drama, lack of process and constant finger pointing. Unbelievable amount of paperwork on each deal.

    Advice to Management

    Dont ask for constructive criticism if you dont want a honest response. It was the most unprofessional place I've ever worked. Understand the road to a sale instead of reinventing the wheel every other day.

    Pros

    The people that you meet here are good hearted southern people with great hearts. They have become great friends and almost like family. I love the hours I work and this position is not micromanaged which is also a plus.

    Cons

    I am struggling to live off of what I am being paid working here. My current income does not allow me to do much of anything outside of work and I am sometimes forced to choose which bill to pay. This company also does not promote within or do they let you know when a position comes available.

    Pros

    The people you work with day -to-day are the best people around...your peers are the only tolerable part of the job. The shop is top of the line equipment and all...but its just for show.

    Cons

    Don't fall for the signing bonus gimmick they use to get you in the door...it doesn't exist. The GM himself told me the company doesn't give signing bonuses. If you are promised anything, GET IT IN WRITING or you will NOT GET IT. BOTTOM LINE. MH is the biggest liar of them all. Management makes promises they don't keep. They will say anything to get you in the door, but never follow through with it. Management at this location is deceitful, lies to employees and doesn't back you up. Management paints a picture of the work likfe balance that doesn't exist once you start working there. Management claims you will get a lot of turned hours, and they will fight for your pay, but they don't. Benefits cost a lot for your portion, but don't cover anything. the warranty clerk will dupe you out of money every chance they get because management only cares abotu company profit not you making a living. they will screw you wherever they can.

    Advice to Management

    Dont lie! Do what you say you will. Don't get rid of the people who make the company better. Don't pretend the Rick Hendrick motto of Happy customers are due to happy employees. He's so out of touch...employees get treated poorly. Don't advertise signing bonuses of $2,000-$5,000 when you know the company does not give them.

    Pros

    Great benefits package. Great employee purchase programs available from manufacturer. Opportunities to be promoted from within. Talented low-level management and good people on sales team.

    Cons

    Hours are terrible (60+ hours per week with every Saturday and the occasional Sunday). Hours are unpredictable and make family and social life difficult. Pay plan is overly complicated and full of nearly impossible qualifiers that make bonuses nonexistent. Micromanagement is rampant. Top-level management is disconnected and more concerned with profit than taking care of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize your talented employees and pay them what they deserve for the personal sacrifices they make. Place more value on tenured sales staff to reduce turnover. Simplify pay plan.

    Pros

    401K, Insurance, Benfits, Spiffs, Extra Opportunities for Advancement, Networking, Teambuilding, Family-Oriented, etc. This company will give back twice what you put in. I started at a very menial position and within 1.5 years was is a very well paying position; 3 times better than what I had ever made previously.

    Cons

    Long Hours, reluctancy from management to provide advice.

    Advice to Management

    This company is constantly adapting to its enviornment, which sometimes leaves commissioned employees left hanging. Unfortunately it's the nature of the auto sales business these days - things can literally change so quickly day-to-day that there is very little time to update your sales team.
