    Former Employee - BDC Agent

    I worked at Morries Automotive Group full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the staff were friendly, and there wasn't a cut throat environment that you would think most car companies would have. You will receive a week of Buy Happy training which is amazing if you are a going to be on the sales team, if your working in the BDC department its just helpful to learn more about Morries.

    Cons

    In the interview they described this job as a digital marketing position, its not! This has Everything to do with getting no direction, being micro managed, making cold calls and harassing customers. This is low paying compared to what others make and has no actual training. The goals are unrealistic of what you are asked to do, and to actually achieve your goals you need to rely on the car sales team. The BDC agent can not sell cars but they are evaluated on how many cars they sell in a month??

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create an actual training program with sales goals that can be achieved by the actual BDC agent so they don't have to rely on the sales team to make them.

    Pros

    Week long extensive sales training program, that is immediately forgotten and advised to put out of your mind as soon as you get to your store (exception being the Mazda store).
    One price car shopping takes the hassle out of back a forth negotiating...most of the time.

    Cons

    Although they tout that they are unique, and have a different approach to cars sales, they are a typical numbers driven sell at all costs dealership. Most stores ignore the week long training approach taught to new hires, and instead adopt a sink or swim approach for newbies.
    Little to no support for new hires. Was not given a desk, phone or computer logins for 3 weeks and then was fired after 5 weeks because I was not selling cars.
    Most of the "ups" come via phone calls or through the Internet Sales Dept. who are suppose to round robin the leads off to sales but instead pick their favorites and give them the majority of the "ups."

    Good earning potential if you make friends and don't mind working 50+ hours per week.

    Pros

    Take lunch or breaks when you feel like it. Your time is your own. Good training material online. Good discount on new cars twice a year for you and your immediate family.

    Cons

    No acknowledgement upon start date. No one introduced themselves, no one showed me around… Basically here’s your desk, here’s your phone. They do training once a month so you can work there for weeks with no training. You also do not get health benefits until 3 months in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Match other trade in offers from other dealerships. Lost half of my deals because we undervalued customers trades.

    Pros

    One of the best pay plans in the industry. Intensive training every morning and afternoon which is fabulous for a newbie, monotonous for a seasoned rep. Morrie's personal reputation is stellar as a man and as a business man. You will make 36k plus your first year just doing what you are told. You will make 50k plus your second or third year. If you are aggressive and can close, 100-150k is reasonable.

    Cons

    The high school clique attitude management has in both service and sales, is childish and detracts from the associates income and coporate in the end. Horrible benifit package that leaves you in debt due to the 4000 dollar deductible that has to be paid before benifits kick in, and the monthly premium is way too high compared to other dealerships. Without the politics, this could be a great place to make a career. But, if you just like to work hard and be to yourself, you will be overlooked numerous times on spoons and other perks. After a while it will bother you as disputes do come up and the winner is whoever's nose is up managements azz. (If you sell 16 units a month disregard the comments on politics)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit the clique and grow up. You come across as unaproachable and that atmosphere kills the sales mojo.
