    I worked at JD Byrider full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Decent salary and commission structure. Clean work environment and decent hours compared to most car companies. Great training. Nice desk space and computer. Opportunity to help people sometimes. Friendly staff. Off on Sunday.

    Cons

    Management is unorganized and unprofessional at times. Too much playing around and not enough work. Management expects you to work on your off day and disregards company policies at times. This company feels that just because a person doesn't have a lot of money or good credit that they should just take what they can get for transportation. They treat the customer as if they are doing them a favor by giving them an over priced vehicle with an outrageous interest rate. This company says they sell a program, yet the program only benefits the company. The budget process is very subjective instead of objective. I received several complaints from customers about management's attitude and lack of empathy. Nepotism seems to be at play here. Management also wants people with degrees, but not everyone in the management team has a degree...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think before you speak and act. Do not be so judgmental of your customer's and be more objective. Show empathy and create more of a work/life balance. Hire an HR Professional for organizational management and behavior to create a company culture that boosts moral and productivity.

    I worked at JD Byrider

    Pros

    Culture was outstanding. Laid back and relaxed as long as you got your work done.

    Cons

    Marketplace is saturated with competition; must be able to overcome objections by staying in touch with what the competitors are doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your team be free, empower those around you to be decision makers.

    Pros

    Good benefits, good people, great for young people that don't have families

    Cons

    No life you live and breath JD Byrider, long hours- the expectation is that you work 9-9 on Fridays and 1 other late night during the week, every other Saturday till 6pm- there's no consistency in the schedule. There are times you will work 9-9 on a Friday and have to turn around and be back in at 9 am on Saturday morning- if you have kids you won't see them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better

    Pros

    IT team is great to work in. The business model about selling/financing autos to people with bad credit is challenging, but everybody there really seemed to want to do it well, and be as fair as possible to potential customers.

    Cons

    Smaller company, not a lot of advancement opportunities. No continuing education reimbursement.

    Pros

    Great pay, if your job directly generates money. A lot of incentives if you work in Collections or Sales.

    Cons

    All IT jobs are under paid and misleading. Most IT personnel are difficult to work with. There is no teamwork in the IT department. Their in-house software is their own enemy. Software is pushed out to quickly and fails every time. Debt Collectors with no education or professional work history, get hired on and make more than the educated IT professionals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-write your Discover (in-house) Software. Pay the IT professionals more. Or Outsource the IT department and all IT functions.

    Pros

    Decent salary. Long hours. Horrible atmosphere.

    Cons

    Long hours, high pressure from management to sell high mileage over priced vehicles to people with bad credit. Winds up putting the customer into a credit trap for 4+ years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being brainwashed by upper management.
