    Pros

    The people work as a team, committed to be the very best they can be to each other and to our guests. A culture of excellence, integrity and caring is genuine and runs from top to bottom. Clean, comfortable and safe workplace with an onsite fitness center, plus fun perks (luncheons, barbecues, etc.) make PMG a great place!

    Cons

    It's a retail company so we are open 7 days a week, and the hours can be long. But if you are in sales, then this a great opportunity.

    Pros

    Everyone is friendly and hard working. We have Subway, Starbucks and AAA on the lot which is convenient. The owner knows everyone by name and takes time to talk to each person.

    Cons

    Every company has its problems, but no real complaints.
    They do their best.

    Advice to Management

    I never posted anything online and try not to get into anyone's business, but I have to say that I'm surprised at the company's response to a recent posting. I am from the business office and I doubt if anyone in Hr has met with some of us to get our opinion on the department. If this happened, I know that Hr would not receive honest answer for obvious reasons. Complaints don't just come from out from nowhere, so there must be something to it. Unfortunately this helps an earlier posting that management really needs to take time to listen and come up with real solutions.

    Pros

    Great company all together, great medical benefits, compensation is great compared to other local dealerships, and everyone truly works as a team. PMG truly wants you to succeed and helps you grow into a great career. Managers are very involved in your success and the success of everyone as a team. Have been here less than a year and already I have been able to grow my career. It feels great to have your hard work recognized by team members and management!

    Cons

    Nothing bad to say

    Pros

    Friendly, clean and good benefits.

    Cons

    No protection for employees against managers who make unreasonable demands. Employees can't trust HR because they will protect managers. The business office is the perfect example. No one wants to work there and those who are there feel trapped and miserable. Many hope to transfer out if they get a chance.

    Advice to Management

    Employees respect management but they need to really step up and say something to those that run the business office. The proof is all the turnover. Many actions in the business office are policy or even law violations.

    Pros

    Ethics run deep, and excellence is the norm. Unlimited opportunities for those that really want them. Very supportive team and promotions all come from within.

    Cons

    Not a great place to work if you like old-school car tactics, or don't like a fast pace: Longo's culture expects excellence daily, and our job is to deliver that to our guests and fellow employees. Great place if you like to succeed, not good if you like to loaf.

    Pros

    It is refreshing to have the owner of the company be intimately involved in the operations at the store. He truly cares about each guest experience and more importantly each employees well being. He challenges everyone to be the best they can be without limitations. Opportunity abounds within Penske Motor Group.

    Cons

    Every job has some Cons but none that are big issues, and can not be overcome.

    Pros

    I love being a part of the preowned department at Lexus of Stevens Creek. Mike is an amazing boss that is very knowledge about the industry. Working next to him is an honor and everyday I get to learn new things. He apprecaites me and my contribution. Its not everyday you get have an amazing boss like this. I feel so lucky!

    Cons

    At times my work load can be a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Mike always appreciates my contribution everyday. There is not a day that goes by that he does not say thank you! Mike's thank you is not just for my contibution to this store but thanks me for my contibution to Penske Motor Group. He goes the extra to mile with his guests, staff and everyone!

    Pros

    The company does a great job of taking care of their employees. They always make sure that every person has everything they need to be successful. The company will always take the high road and do the right thing.

    Cons

    Hard to find any downsides. By far the best automotive dealership to work at on the West coast. Very stable and a lot of room for growth.
