    I worked at Sam Swope Auto Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - You get a paycheck.
    - You can provide for your family until you find a better job.
    - You learn all the dirty little tricks of the automotive sales industry so the next time you purchase a vehicle you know what to look out for.

    Cons

    - If you are Hispanic, discrimination and racism runs rampant throughout the entire organization directed solely at Latinos. It's not only tolerated, it is happening at the highest levels within the organization.
    - They have a policy that if you do not have good credit and if you must go through their 'buy here, pay here' section known as the "Advantage Plan", they will not sell you a car if you do not speak English. This has been their policy for over 20 years according to management.
    - You must sign an Arbitration Agreement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    (1) Take better care of your employees no matter what their national origin is. (2) NEVER underestimate the power of social media. (3) Read up on the definition of "hate crimes' and ensure you're not guilty or covering up for someone else who is guilty. (4) Have spouses sign arbitration agreements and non-disparagement / settlement agreements.

    I worked at Sam Swope Auto Group

    Pros

    The flexibility of my management team. My manager was always fair with his employees and he truly cared about our personal and professional growth. The dealership was always clean and inviting.

    Cons

    The cons of the dealership are the cons of the entire automotive industry...12 hour days 7 days a week.

    Long, tedious, boring, unscrupulous, and unrewarding.

    I worked at Sam Swope Auto Group

    Pros

    Decent training despite the official trainer, there are a lot of great associates working there that make things much easier.

    Cons

    "Nobody walks away" mentality ensures that every customer can walk all over the sales associates and management will ruin any rapport you had with a client in order to make the quick sale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to relax a little bit, make it a comfortable environment for customers and your "associates", it feels like a dentists office.
