    Pros

    Incredible team atmosphere. True comradory amongst the employees. Management is always trying to find ways to help each individual improve. Excellent compensation and benefits including 401k. Vacation time and sick time are a benefit as well!

    Cons

    The balance of home and work like is a bit tough because it is retail and the dealerships are open 7 days a week in Sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Master's of Excellence is an incredible opportunity for the very top performers in BDC and Sales to enjoy a much deserved end of year 5% bonus and an incredible night of entertainment on Herb. The criteria for the BDC is unfortunate because they cannot directly affect it individually so its out of their hands whether they get to partake in such a special part of working for this company. The criteria should have to be met individually as that shows a true champion. They should also bring back contests for outstanding performances in the BDC as those build job/career excitement and help to build great relationships amongst the other dealerships. Employee turnover is lowest when comradory amongst fellow co-workers is highest.

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial rewards and nimble decision making, but also health insurance, 401k match, and other benefits and stability of a larger company. Many development opportunities.

    Cons

    This is a customer-focused retail business, so weekends are when much of the business is done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep delivering for loyal customers; keep growing!

    Pros

    Great room for advancement within the company. Always hiring from within. Good benefits too.

    Cons

    Internal Mngment could acknowledge more hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The BDC is grossly underpaid (yes, even the good ones). You need more contests, too. Sales consultants get everything...what about 'the little guys', like a few years back?

    Pros

    There is always promotions and room to grow within the company (as stated in the title). Herb is a great guy, as is the management. We're all a supportive team/family throughout the dealerships. Definitely a plan to learn the auto business and get recognized for the work you do, if you do it well!

    Cons

    It's the car business...the hours are long, and we work holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe a few more contests/bonus opportunities for people other than F&I managers and sales reps...other than that, keep up the good work!

    Pros

    If you're a hard worker you will be rewarded. The company is always looking to promote from within for all positions. There are several people that I have met who have started off washing cars in the recon center that are successful in sales and management.

    The benefits include; Health, dental, optional vision insurance, as well as paid vacations.

    Training! We get the best training in the business and are always looking to help improve personal performance.

    Great opportunities are available for those who want to work for it.

    Cons

    Schedule. This is a retail business, weekends are the busiest days of the week, be prepared to work them. We tend to work 5-6 days a week with an average of 46 hours per week.

    Be prepared to work hard. This is a performance based business, and if you work hard you will be rewarded. If you find it difficult to motivate yourself you will not be happy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay engaged with employees, and be proactive. Complacency is the enemy.

    Pros

    Nothing. All promises but never delivered. Very disorganized. It might be "Best Palces to work" but I don't see that at all.

    Cons

    LONG Hours. Very little time-off. Easily 65 hrs week. Constantly short-changed on pay/commission. Have to FIGHT with manager and office to get paid. Shallow, un-educated slimeballs. Two-faced and cheesy employees throughout the dealership (Millbury, MA)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Close your shop. You guys are so corrupt.
