    I have been working at Orange Coast Auto Traders full-time (Less than a year)

    Long hours and have to work weekends.

    Pros

    Some outdoors work. Nice on a beautiful day!

    Cons

    Too many chiefs! Starting from the top, many employees think they're the boss and behave in a narcisistic, control freak, abusive manner to the lower paid employees. The morality level is very low among the lowest paid hardest working most dedicated employees.

    Advice to Management

    Raise ethical standard towards employees and customers. Keep promises of incentive pay to employees. Appreciate the workers in the trenches behind the scenes that make money for the people above them. More respect and less intimidation and verbal abuse towards employees would be nice as well! Quit hiring GM's & GSM's who use intimidation as motivation!

    Pros

    They used to pay better than most dealers, If you can read their schedule that they seem to open/close just before payday to try and confuse staff.

    Cons

    The owner is obsessive/compulsive. He changes his mind about how the company should be run at the drop of a hat. ZERO stability. Employee purchase discounts depend on how well you're liked. The entire store rewards backstabbing, they learn from the higher-ups who learn form the boss.

    Advice to Management

    Hope somebody buys him out before he runs the ship into the ground. Would he be able to successfully build the place like his father did?, NO. Daddy has bailed him out on 3 seperate occasions already. When attending Manufacturer meetings and people are talking about "the mouth" it's him.
