    I have been working at AutoNation full-time (More than 5 years)


    I’ve worked for AutoNation for almost 5 years and love it. There is a lot of opportunity to move up within the company, and I’m a woman, and know that’s not easy to find in this industry.


    Auto Sales is fast paced and high pressure, but that’s not really a problem caused by this company. It’s just the nature of the business. I happen to love it!
