    Pros

    I have worked for Lexus of Stevens Creek for the past 13 ½ years. I began working as a shuttle driver and then for the past 11 years I’ve worked as a Guest Relations Representative. I have thoroughly enjoyed working for this dealership. My co-workers are great to work with and fun to be around. I respect and admire Greg Penske’s leadership. I like people and appreciate the challenge of making our guests feel special.

    Cons

    I really cannot think of any. I'm very happy with the organization.

    Advice to Management

    The management team has done an amazing job.

    Pros

    All of the employees are extremely warm hearted, very easy to work with, everyone helps each other out.

    Cons

    I actually do not have any complaints about working at this particular dealership under the ownership of Penske Motor Group. My family has been doing business with this dealership for as long as I can remember. I've been on both sides, the customer side and employee side, and I've enjoyed being here ever since.

    Advice to Management

    We definitely need more parking spaces for the new vehicles, or at least a more organized strategy for parking. I sometimes have to move more than a handful of cars (3 or more) just to get to one car, and that takes time away from me getting more photos.

    Pros

    Although I've only just recently started working for Penske Motor Group, its easy to see why people love to work here! It really feels like a 'team' environment when you work for Penske Motor Group, and many times in large businesses that can be easily lost. The tremendous level of concern and care PMG holds for their employees is evident by the culture its preaches, as well as all the rewards and benefits it offers to its employees. I think that any company that cares enough to put a health care professional on staff to ensure that the employees have accessible health care information and benefits right at their fingertips is phenomenal. Any company who takes care of the employees from the bottom up, knows how to run a successful business; it starts from within! In addition, any large corporation that takes time to give back is doing it right! Not only does PMG constantly give back to the community through generous donations and fundraisers, it has built a culture among the employees to want to give back as well. All team members constantly participate in community out reach programs such as food or clothes drives, and walks and runs for causes! For me, to work for a company that cares about philanthropy as much as I do, has really allowed me to build such positive image of my company! I am proud to say that not only am I a Lexus of Stevens Creek employee, but a Penske Motor Group Team Member as well.

    Cons

    Can't think of anything the company needs to fix.

    Advice to Management

    They're doing a great job!
