    I worked at Sheehy Auto full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay was average. Benefits were good. Annual family day at Kings Dominion paid for by the company. Continuous competitions with nice rewards. Coworkers were good. The opportunity to grow is there if you work for it.

    Cons

    Pay could have been better. Some people didn't fit their positions. Hours weren't great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you work that Saturday you should get a day off during the week. So you work 5 days instead of 6.

    Pros

    The money is intoxicating if you have no other skills to rely on where else can you make 50k-75k?

    Cons

    Hours ..... Need to be careful of everything you say and who you say it to just like any other place you work. Its the car business and everyone wants to sell a car, sometimes that means you need to watch your back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice would be to look out for your top performers and make sure they are making the money they should be. From what I have seen our pay is some of the lowest in the industry. Wish the company would take back the " your all expendable" state of mind. Health insurance is Incredibly high !!

    Pros

    Tons of support, everyone woks as a team to get the job done. Everyone has been friendly and professional and any issues are resolved quickly. Management will roll up their sleeves and work right beside you when we are extremely busy. There are a ton of opportunities to grow with the company and move up! If you put in the work, you will get recognized and appreciated. It makes for a very pleasant work environment.

    Cons

    I wish I got paid a little more but I just started so there is time to move up and increase my paycheck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep up the good work!

    I have been working at Sheehy Auto full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The oppurtunity to earn unlimited income without a college degree. Company paid trainbing for the 1st month or so. Established local brand name. Support from experienced management staff.

    Cons

    Long hours are the norm if you want to be successfull, so if you will see more of your coworkers than your family and friends. Commision based income so it is really hard to budget your money. High turnover for sales and finance staff creates distruptions in operations. Sheehy does a poor job of training and development of staff memebers so when a manangement spot opens up, they are more likely to bring someone new into the posistion than they are to promote a current staff member.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Limit pointless meetings. Schedule employees so that they can have some sort of work/life balance. Train and develop more internally so you can retain current employees.

    I have been working at Sheehy Auto

    Pros

    They provide decent benefits after 3 months, if you have car experience you can do pretty well on the floor, the sales management team is excellent it is the layer of management over that that sucks.

    Cons

    Top down leadership on a corporate scale is awful. They view every employee as expendable. They look for ways to decrease the salaries of sales team while keeping as many managers as possible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    fire yourselves. Senior managment needs to look at the current economy as a business expense. If you want to cut labor costs fire those that do not produce and keep the ones that are excellent sales people happy. When the cuts to pay keep coming you lose any incentive to stay when another dealership might offer a better opportunity.
