What is working from home like at CarShop?

Pros

There are a lot of good things to say about Carsense, not sure how it all fits in a review. I've been with the company for about 8 years now, and I enjoy going to work day in and day out. I am challenged, I'm excited to learn and grow and improve myself and the company, and every day brings something a little new. It is nice to have the security of my job, in a company that is not only growing quickly, but excels at what they do in all departments. They stand behind and act out their values, like honesty and integrity, and respecting each other. It is a great team atmosphere, and people get along with each other and succeed together. We work hard but always find time to have some fun and get along. I have never had an issue taking time off or calling out because I needed to be home for family. Carsense has always been very flexible and understanding, which is incredibly important to me. They treat me like family, and I know they are respectful of my home life and work balance. Being able to have that balance between work and home life only helps me to be a better worker and pushes me to want to do more for the company. I miss the annual outing to Hershey (so did my kids), but what they did to stay open and keep people with the company during Covid is even more impactful. The way I was treated before, during, and after the thick of when the economy closed down, and Carsense had to fight to remain open, showed how much they valued the people that work for them. I am very thankful to be one of those employees of Carsense. I'm looking forward to many more years at Carsense, promotions, challenges, and hopefully more company events like the Christmas party, store lunches, and Hershey. They do so much for us that they don't have to. It's nice to be appreciated and recognized, and they make sure you are!

Cons

Like every job, there are stressful moments, long days, and unexpected obstacles that come up. I’ve worked jobs that I dreaded and hated, and it is hard to keep going back in day after day. Even after a bad day at Carsense, I still want to turn around and go back in the next morning to fix a problem, overcome an issue, and work alongside my colleagues. Nothing is perfect, but I genuinely look forward to where Carsense is heading, and where it will take me.

They treat me like family, and I know they are respectful of my home life and work balance.

How is the work/life balance at CarShop?

Pros

At lest you get your Sunday's off

Cons

The new COO is the most arrogant, out of touch person I have ever met. Thinks he is above every one. Managers constantly reach out to you on your day off, even though they promise the job is only 40 hours and you can have a work life balance. They pride themselves on not being a typical dealership, but their actions prove otherwise. Pushing warranties, trying to force people to buy. The sales managers care about nothing other than numbers. Sales consultants are required to fix every other departments' mistakes. Yet if they make one, it is the end of the world. Selfish company that does not give raises, nor compete with other pay plans out there. The only thing they want to tell you about is the Christmas party. They beg for 5 star reviews. If a negative one is posted, the executives follow by posting fake 5 stars. Don't believe me? Just check after every negative review. Trending in the wrong direction.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees for once. Haven't yet, so I doubt they will now. Get with the times and stop promoting people to management who have zero leadership abilities.

Does CarShop reimburse for mileage?

Pros

Carsense does not flood the floor with salesmen so it allows you to have plenty of opportunities. The cars basically sell themselves because of the quality of vehicles we get and our reconditioning team. Build your own deals. No haggling so it takes the headache out of car sales. Money is good if you are willing to put an effort in.

Cons

Working Saturdays but that's where you make a lot of money so in my opinion it is worth it.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you are doing. The Gm is friendly and down to earth. The managers are more like friends there to help when needed but stay out of the way when you don't. The President is awesome also very down to earth and treats people like his own family.

No haggling so it takes the headache out of car sales.

Good news comes in bunches! After 7 years of service, I am thrilled to announce Keith G's promotion to General Sales Manager in our Glen Mills location. This will be his second stop in Glen Mills! Keith is the ultimate servant leader and has a track record of success and team building. Keith began his career as a Sales Consultant in Hatfield. He then earned the nod to help open the Glen Mills location from “Day 1” as a Sales Manager. Next, Keith answered the call to head to Mt. Holly and brought great energy and passion to the team. He now returns to Glen Mills to lead the charge and we couldn’t be more excited for him.

Please join me in congratulating Amy D. in her promotion to Area Controller of CarShop! Amy brings a wide variety of skills and expertise to her new role. Amy joined CarShop in 2008 as a Delivery Coordinator and then earned a promotion to Finance Assistant in Hatfield. When we expanded into Pittsburgh in 2012, Amy transferred from the Philadelphia market to help open the Cranberry Finance Office. Nearly 2 years later, Amy volunteered to take her expertise to the Robinson location to ensure another successful store launch. With both Pittsburgh stores firmly established, Amy moved back to Chester Springs several years ago as an Accounting Manager. Now her journey continues as the Area Controller where she will now lead CarShop’s Accounting team. Amy is another prime example of a hard-working, exceptional associate who has earned multiple promotions and has ascended to a key position within CarShop. Congratulations Amy and we look forward to your continued success!
