    Pros

    Great health and retirement benefits. This position was in the service ( not sales) department and it was a family type of environment, mostly due to the Service Manager. Low stress job, perfect for a retired person looking for additional income and a way to keep busy. Very social job.

    Cons

    Pay wasn't great but better than minimum wage. Benefits do not include sick, vacation or holiday pay.

    Advice to Management

    Pay for sick days so when someone is ill they can stay home and not spread the germs

    Pros

    Really good pay. Really good bonuses. Ability to invest in stocks.

    Cons

    Long hours. If looking to spend most of your time running around to chase people down while your managers yell at you for letting someone go who's not interested and just looking and still in their cars then this is for you.

    Pros

    The company provides good benefits.

    Cons

    You never know how management will teat you from day to day. I felt like I was on a roller coaster not knowing what to expect each morning when I arrived to work. If you were in the right "click" you would be treated great. If you were not watch out.

    Advice to Management

    Managers should be trained on how to treat their employees with respect. Make the employees feel like they are valuable and not just a number.
