    Outstanding Company to Work for

    I have been working at McGrath Auto full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company has a desire for you to succeed and provides you with the tools to do so. It is family owned and operated and there are multiple McGrath Family members at work each day and they are all great to work with. Promotion happens from within and as long as you make yourself the Obvious Choice you are a candidate for any position regardless of your current job title.

    Cons

    Balancing the hours can become difficult at sometimes but that is throughout the automotive industry, not just for any of these dealerships.

    Pros

    high earnings potential and fun work environment

    Cons

    inconsistent pay, crappy holiday pay/policy, lot of politics involved--the top guys get a lot of help from management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    inspire hard work and success rather than threaten employees

    Sales Consultant

    Current Employee - Sales in Hiawatha, IA

    I have been working at McGrath Auto full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    McGrath has a very friendly atmosphere with a lot of training from various departments. They have a very clean service department which add value to their brand.

    Cons

    Forget about having any two days off in a row and be prepared to work very long hours. The day starts at 8:30 to 9pm on Monday and Thursday nights. Sales people stay longer when a customer is finishing up in the business office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put in a lighted "Service Department" sign to help customers better recognize where they need to get service especially for new service customers. Saw many park and ask where the service department is.
