    I have been working at KAR Holdings full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed, fun environment. Decent pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Arrogant, sexist, clueless IT management where decisions are all based on politics instead of what's best for the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Executive leadership needs to clean house in IT management. Hire people who will follow best practices instead of good ole boy politics.

    Pros

    Good benefits package, nothing else.

    Cons

    They are the parent company for Adesa Auctions, AutoVin, Automotive Finance Corp, Preferred Warranty, Dent Demon. Upper management are all unscrupulous and are very quick to blame others for their downfalls. If you are a butt kisser and willing to be part of the boys club, by all means, you need to apply.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You will have to answer to the maker when judgement day comes.

    Pros

    Decent benefits and paid time off

    Cons

    Horrible Training program, just push you into job with no assistance.All training done via ancient computer training and conference calls. NOT HELPFUL! Expections High for poor work environment. A lot of turnover and Corporate has no loyalty to workers, no matter how long you have been with Company, but Expect complete loyalty to them. Too many Rules about your Personal Choices, cant do any thing you want without prior permission. like buy a car! or Date someone. Very Controlling

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember we are people and NOT perfect. Training should be within each branch and by local Training person to person NOT muckty stuck up corporate who never has done the job day to day!! (WINTER) Can't expect no mistakes when the Training is very lacking.
