The company offers decent training and there is opportunity for growth. Herb is an optimist with a great attitude, which trickles down to a positive work environment for his staff. The CEO also brings consummate change/ideas and helpful feedback. Both seem to genuinely care about their employees. From a dealership level, there was a pleasant morale and my colleagues made it an enjoyable place for me. Had I not had to relocate, I would say I would be pleased to still be working there.
Required to work most holidays and there are long hours (but I guess no one is really working 40 hour work weeks anymore?!?). But, there was this unspoken guilt (especially if performance was not up to par) when you want to take your well-deserved time off. There was an applied pressure that was felt when falling behind quota. In terms of benefits, it needs improvement and the health insurance contribution could be much better.
Advice to Management
Working doesn't feel so much like work when you feel appreciated.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Herb Chambers (Auburn, MA) in December 2016.
Submitted my resume online on a Tuesday, was called the following Saturday for an interview Monday morning. The interview was mostly chatting, it was as if they had already decided to hire me before I walked in the door. The sales manager that interviewed me hadn't looked at my resume at all, and was unable to answer simple questions about what the company offered for benefits, or even how "ups" and leads were divided among employees. I was told "yeah they have the best health insurance and whatnot and if you need time off you just ask for it." Overall it seemed relatively unprofessional, and the interviewer seemed most interested in telling me how much money I was going to make (which, when I did the math of what he told me, it didn't seem like any more money than I am making at my current retail job). Also, when asked about how the pay works, the gentleman was very vague, and just fell back on "every week you'll make bunches of money in commission, so it's not a big deal."
