    I worked at Kendall Auto Group full-time

    Pros

    Large growing company well funded with room for improvement.

    Cons

    Low interpersonal concerns for most employees regardless of performance, poor pay, rigid policies. You're a winner until you are a loser then they threaten to replace you instead of helping you.

    Advice to Management

    Care about the people who work for you by choice not only the ones which you back into a corner who have no place else to work. Some of your employees just have to take it and maybe your best ones leave because you could care less.

    I have been working at Kendall Auto Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people that work here are great. Many, many lifelong friends made.

    Cons

    This used to be a family company with a huge stress on taking care of our own, and looking out for one another. No more. Expect all the family vibe of working for FoxxConn or the government.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to what you were. You used to care about your employees, now we're just numbers.

    I worked at Kendall Auto Group full-time

    Pros

    Nothing I experienced while there.

    Cons

    It felt like working for a ponzy scheme, all the managers care about is making money off of you. They can just create what your commission is for any vehicle and play favorites for who they give more money too. Training was non-existent, hands on that is, they just sit you in front of a computer and figure you will make it or not. Don't care about anyone's family outside work, just making them money. I started looking for other jobs my first week in.

    Advice to Management

    Have some balls and interact with customers. You are no different than the Wizard of OZ behind your curtain. Salesmen are nothing but puppets in this business, yet you take their advice and you receive all the blame.


  7. A good place to learn the business to work elsewhere.

    I have been working at Kendall Auto Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good sales floor support from lower management.

    Cons

    Ridiculously high pack assessed on to each car for the dealership's overhead. Awful scheduling. 100+ hours every 2 weeks required.

    Advice to Management

    Have more respect for your entire sales team. If everyone could sell cars, everyone would. Allow the salesmen who actually sold "the car" a chance to make money without UAing the customers trade. Employees perform better when they aren't repeatedly told that they are expendable.

    Former Employee - Auto Parts Sales in Eugene, OR

    Pros

    - Selling and working with cars and auto parts, if you're in this profession, if probably a "pro" - Opportunities to move up are available if 1.) you know the right people 2.) you make a good impression 3.) you make a good effort

    Cons

    - Strong "Good ol' boy" culture behind the scenes (this can be true for any auto-related business) - Standard fare office politics and drama - Employees are left in the dark about serious business changes that can impact financial stability

    Advice to Management

    Upper management - keep an eye on your middle management. Keep your employees informed of any upcoming serious changes to the company so they can insure their own financial stability.
